Good morning! And congratulations to all for making it to the end of our first week back on site!
This week, Aitken Creek Good News has some student and staff reflections about returning to school and remote learning. And even more exciting – we filmed on site!
Please enjoy Episode 1 of ACGN 🙂
Our School Captains have been busy these school holidays and created a special holiday episode of ACGN. Scripted and filmed entirely by the School Captains during their holidays – even the editing was taken over by them!
In this episode, our Captains share what they have been up to these holidays now restrictions are slowly being lifted and the weather is getting warmer.
What have you been up to these holidays? Share with us on our blog post or school Facebook page!
See you soon for Term 4!
And just like that Term 3 is finished. We have had an awesome Term, learning from home and have tried our best with all of our learning. We learnt about so many different things this term.
In literacy this term we have been learning all about procedural texts and fables. We learnt the structure of procedural texts and also that great procedural texts contain verbs and adverbs. Then we had a go at writing our own texts about a lunch we made ourselves. We have just started learning about fables and how every fable has a moral.
We have covered so many things in maths this term. We have learnt about skip counting, measurement, money, patterns, halves and we’re even starting to learn about time. It has been great to try lots of different things to help our brains get smarter and smarter.
CBL has been lots of fun this term. We have been learning about all of the different types of power and how we use power every day. We even became engineers, designing and building our own designs that use power.
In the last few weeks we have started doing some wellbeing activities each Friday to practice self regulation and good wellbeing activities. We have reflected on our strengths and have been able to monitor how we are feeling throughout the day. We have also done some really fun activities over WebEx like today’s cooking activity.
Have a safe and fun holiday.
ACGN ends Term 3 with our 9th episode!
We include a fun video from the teachers, updates on some end of term class fun and reminders of how to stay Covid-safe over the school holidays.
Stay safe and enjoy a restful holiday break!
See you in Term 4!
Episode 7 is here!
In this episode we welcome a Rookie Reporter to ACGN, share about the Prep’s zoo excursion (yes – they went to the zoo!) and give you a sneak peek at some excitement coming up from our Specialist teachers. We hope this brings a smile to your face!
Please watch, share and enjoy!
Episode 6 shares some feedback we have received from students and teachers – we hope you feel that ACGN brightens your day as well! If it does, let us know by emailing Ms Huntly or giving your teacher a comment or video to pass onto the ACGN team. These will continue to be shared in other episodes!
We also showcase our Student Leaders who want to share some good spirits by declaring “Everything Is Awesome” and some Year 4 teachers and ES who demonstrate some very complicated dance steps!
Thanks for watching! And as always, stay safe and stay positive!
