Today the Grade 4’s spent some time planning and creating different styles of paper aeroplanes. Once their designs were complete we had a competition to see which plane could fly the furthest and which plane could stay in the air the longest. Congratulations to Zac H and James on winning those competitions. The students have loved the opportunity to get back together with their peers and have some fun with their learning.
Yesterday the Grade 4’s spent the afternoon working with a partner in The Great Egg Drop Challenge. Teams were allocated materials and needed to make a carrier to keep their egg safe when dropped from the top of the playground. Not all the eggs survived the fall but this session was eggs-actly what the students needed after a tough couple of months.
How to log onto Essential Assessment and access both Sunset Maths and My Numeracy at home: Students have their own username and passwords for Essential Assessment. I have listed an example below and included the link to follow. The ‘School Code’ is Beaconsfield PS.
School Code: Beaconsfield PS
Please note that we will not be conducting Walk to School for the time being.
Just a reminder that swimming begins on Monday the 16th March and will be running over the next 2 weeks excluding Wednesday’s for the participating Grade 4’s.
What to bring
Pack bathers, towel and goggles if preferred. Also a plastic bag for wet items.
As stated on the permission form, the children CAN NOT SWIM if they do not bring a swimming cap. If your child forgets either the cap or their swimming bag on a morning, they will still travel on the bus with their class but will be unable to swim.
Coming to Watch
You are welcome to come and watch your child swim at Haileybury College, but you will need to sign in at THEIR office reception (see signs on the grounds) and get a ‘Visitor’ sticker. You then drive around to the pool which is towards the back of the grounds. Only parents who have signed in at Beaconsfield Primary School and been given a red lanyard as a parent helper (as per the roster emailed and sent home) will be permitted in the change rooms to assist with dressing children.
There is a strict policy of NO PHOTOGRAPHY at the pool.
From time to time we have had some instances where a child has been advised by a doctor not to swim. In this situation the child can still travel on the bus with their class and watch their friends.
Thank you for your cooperation.
District Swimming has been cancelled due to weather conditions, new date will be advised as soon as possible.
