I am really delighted to see so many of you logging on at 10 each morning. It is a lovely start to my day to see you all ready to go, to meet each other in our virtual classroom, to share how you are getting on, to support each other with positive encouraging feedback on projects, and to play a few games. You are all showing so much commitment to your schoolwork by showing up each day. Those of you engaging in assignments and posting them back are showing great independence and diligence, and this will stand to you as you get ready for secondary school next term. All these digital learning skills will be of great help to you as well as managing your time, organising tasks, and motivating yourself to get things done on time. Remember the first post in January.....'out of adversity, comes great opportunity!', so well done on taking the opportunity to continue learning in your own space.
Here's what you got up to his week....
We saw the return of the daily mile.....I really miss this from our time in school. The daily mile is great for our heart and bone health, our fitness, as well as enhancing our mood, easing stress, general wellbeing and connecting with nature and our community. This week 6th class upped their game, aiming to jog for 15minutes each day. It's a great way to start your day! Well done to Emma S, Katie, Katelyn, Lily, Sophie and Adam for logging their miles! And a HUGE achievement for Kacey this week who ran her longest distance ever....8miles!....That's AMAZING!
EDITED: IN fact KACEY set a goal in early JANUARY and has achieved that goal of running 56 miles in one month! That is more than 2 marathons! That's just fabulous KACEY!

We celebrated Lego day this week. We learned about the history and origins of LEGO.
Lauren designed a skycraper digitally and also a KAHOOT quiz that can be done on the link below. Try it out!

Time frames are flexible. We are heading into week 4 and will start presenting for whoever is ready after that. Take the time you need.
