The Grade 3s were quick to work out what it means to tessellate today, and produced some of their own shapes by following the steps on this handy link.
Bell PS will once again be participating in Ride2School Day on Friday 23rd of March.
Ride2School is a nationwide program delivered by Bicycle Network, designed to support schools to encourage, empower and enable more students to get physically active on their journey to school. It provides an opportunity for students, parents and teachers to try riding, walking, skating or scooting to school as well as celebrating the regular walkers and riders.
On this day, riding and walking to school is made normal and the entire school community can support it. It is a chance to celebrate on a large scale and to prove it can be done.
The event will be organised and run by Junior School Council. Stay tuned for further information.
Today March the 8th is International Women’s Day and to celebrate 4W conducted a mini-inquiry that focussed on Sustainable Development Goal 5 “Gender Equality” as well as watched a couple of videos the call for more action on gender equality. The first “Own Your Voice” was from the perspective of some powerful women who use youtube as a platform for using their voice to share their views on equality. The second was a Behind The News article that discussed important women in
history herstory and as well as bringing our attention to a fabulous podcast produced by the ABC called Fierce Girls and listened to a snapshot of one of their recordings about the story of Louise Sauvage a Paralympian. We were so enamoured by the story, that we had to listen to the entire episode. Whilst listening to the episode the students draw whatever came to mind in their thinking/ideas book. Below are some of the sketches.
Last week the Grade 3s started looking at persuasive devices that ad companies use to convince us to buy their product or idea. Today, in pairs, they started to brainstorm and create their own posters to persuade others to follow a common school rule or rule at home.
Here is some of their early work. Students were encouraged to use devices such as:
Colour, alliteration, repetition, celebrity, character endorsement, target audience, slogan/catchy phrase, facts and figures, promise, song, rhyme, logo and more!
We hope to put these up around the school to show off our awesome work when we finish them over the next week.
