Cross Country ... the training begins

In preparation for our Cross Country race later this term we have begun our training.  We train with all the classes in Team 1 straight after morning tea.  First we assembled and Ms George told us about the training and which route we would take.  Then we had our first training session.  Everyone in the whole team did really well!

We are looking forward to our next training session tomorrow!

Our Weekend

QR codes open up our world

As part of our Integrated Learning this term, we're exploring other countries in the Commonwealth.   Our topic wall contains QR (Quick Response codes) with links to the site which Mrs Belt created, to assist our learning about the countries and sports of the Commonwealth Games.   After learning how to use QR codes with our iPads yesterday, today it was a chance for the learners to explore the site!  The QR codes were a huge success and most of the class did not want to stop exploring when it was time to pack up!

Scanning the QR codes on the wall:


Having a look at the pages of the sites:


Our Class 20 Commonwealth Games Google Site or if you have a QR Reader, access the site in the same way our learners are accessing it:
