Teachers Versus Students Football Game

Today we had two games with the teachers versus a team from third and fourth classes and a game against a team from fifth and sixth classes.

The first game ended level 5-5.  It went to penalties, sudden death.  The students won after two penalties each (1-0)

The second game finished 3-2 to the students after getting a last minute goal.

Everybody enjoyed the day.

Below are some photographs.

 

 

Probability and Chance

How likely are you to win the Lotto? Although we would LOVE to say it is a definite chance, we all know that it is very unlikely. Possible – but unlikely!!

This week we were learning about the probability of certain outcomes. For example: What is the chance of rolling an odd/even number on a dice? That’s right, there is an equal chance!

We played lots of probability games like spinning a spinner and landing on different animals, flipping coins, choosing different coloured marbles out of a mystery bag. It was great fun!

Have a look at some of our photos!

School Football Blitz 2017

On the 20th of June, the school had a football blitz with the 5th and 6th class teams. The winning team will play against the teachers next week. Here are some photographs taken of the football blitz.

Green School Committee Tour

The Green School Committee went on a tour of the Rediscovery Centre today. It was a beautiful sunny day as we set of!

We got to the centre just before 10 am and we met the Education Officer Roberta. We also met Sarah and Emily.

She explained all the fun activities that we would be doing.

First we played a game where we were otters looking for fish in a polluted river. It was great fun.

Then we had to be birds looking for worms in the garden!

Next we went ‘pond dipping’ looking at all the life forms in the centre’s pond. We also went on a mini-beast hunt on the roof garden.

After lunch we had a tour of the centre and made some bug hotels.

We had a fantastic day and learned a lot about biodiversity.
