This term our school will be participating in a series of weekly lessons run by “School Gymnastics for the NSW Mid North Coast”.
The program consists of a comprehensive and progressive set of lessons that meet the outcome expectations for each learning stage. All activities are tailored to meet each child’s ability. The programs will steadily progress from week to week to teach students specific gymnastics skills whilst developing overall fitness, core strength, flexibility, and enhancing spatial awareness.
The first set of lessons started today with all participants learning new skills and leaving with huge smiles on their faces!
This term K/6B and 3/6C have been studying ‘Our Solar System’. They have been working extremely hard and learnt many interesting facts along the way that they wanted to share. Well done to everybody involved….especially Seton!
Rainbow Reading started last week for Year 1 and 2 students! The launch was absolutely fabulous with a sea of colour filling the school. The students split into their differentiated groups to complete a range of exciting activities and group reading. All groups then came together to share stories and to celebrate a fantastic morning 🙂
K-6 students that attended the wonderful Brainstorm Production yesterday afternoon were all smiles!!! The H Team were wonderfully entertaining and passed on a lot of valuable information to our students.
The H Team: A unique anti-bullying program for schools that gives teachers and students the knowledge, confidence and resilience to help combat negative feelings and behaviours. This exciting adventure story fosters teamwork, critical thinking skills, self-discipline, physical fitness and highlights the power of the bystander. Unhealthy competition about body shape, brand name clothes, toys and gadgets can cause division in the playground and online. Some children feel embarrassed and alienated and others use their power to tease and intimidate. The H Team inspires this generation of children to outsmart the media, the junk food giants, the advertising gurus and the bullies to create a healthy harmonious school community.
On Friday K-2 students had a special visit from Gina and her pet dog Cruze from the ‘Responsible Pet Education Program’. Students learnt how to be safe around dogs and how to say hello to dogs that are with their owners. There was lots of very important information, role plays, singing and even some dancing! Cruze loved meeting all of the happy and friendly students in K-2.
I’ve designed and built an English Minecraft maze for year 1 students at our school.
It has their sight words throughout the maze where they have to choose the correct spelling. The students that have used the maze thought it was lots of fun!!
I’m hoping it will help them with their spelling.
2L wanted to share their love of reading with everyone!!
The children and staff had a wonderful time at the Easter Hat Parade last week. It was fantastic to see so many families come and join in the fun. Excitement filled the air especially when our special guest arrived…..yes the Easter Bunny hopped on in for a special visit!!!!
On Thursday the 17th March Coffs Harbour Public School hosted the Camp Quality puppet show. The travelling puppet show for primary schools answers all the difficult questions kids have about cancer, dispels common myths and teaches students how to be supportive and understanding of kids living with cancer – all of which prevents bullying and exclusion. It was a great performance that had the children engaged, laughing and most importantly learning how to be a good friend.
As part of our Live Life Well initiative Stage 1 students have been participating in daily skipping. The students are thoroughly enjoying getting fit whilst having fun at the same time. Look at them go!!!
