3M News

What a busy start to Term 3!

3M have rocketed straight into their S.T.E.A.M project…SPACE INVADERS. They have created their own fictional planets and developed a fictional character to live on their planet. It has been wonderful to observe the students thinking, questioning and reflections along with their enthusiasm for the overall topic. It will be our assembly on Thursday the 16th of August at 2pm if you would like to come along. 3M will be telling you all about Captain Disposition.

Multicultural Day

On Wednesday 29th August from 11.30am through to 1pm CHPS will be recognising and celebrating the many cultures that attend our school. A Multicultural Day is a wonderful way to support our students and acknowledge the richness and diversity of the different cultures that make up our school. It is also a great opportunity to appreciate everything we have in common such as a safe place to grow up and learn, good friends and a positive future. Parents and community members are invited to attend this event. There will be more information to come about the activities on the day.

We look forward to seeing you,

Multicultural Day Committee.

Want to join in on the War on Waste? Register now for our Food Smart program 

Did you know that the average household throws away $3,800 per household of perfectly good food each year – what would you do with an extra $3,800?

We don’t intend to, but we often waste good food because we buy too much, cook too much, or don’t store food correctly. Food Smart is a free education program that helps households reduce food waste at home, save money and help the environment.

Help us avoid creating this waste problem in the first place, by taking part in the Food Smart program!

KD in action

A lovely video of KD performing at the K-2 assembly. Well done KD!

 Pandora Animals and Plants

We watched a short snippet of the Pandora Movie. We discussed the vocabulary and language used to describe the creatures and plants on the Planet. We then invented our own plants and animals using some of the new vocabulary we learnt. We wrote in the style of the narrator on the movie.

For the plants names we investigated ‘Latin botanical names’. We named our plants according to what they looked like, where they lived, using the Latin names we found.

We hope you like them, from 6B

Getting a taste for Science-Fiction

5M have been studying a sci-fi unit called ‘Pandora’. The unit is based on James Cameron’s ‘Avatar’ film. The students have created their own creatures that could survive in a world like Pandora. They are now in the process of writing a narrative about meeting their own creature in the wilderness on Pandora. Here are some of their creatures.
