The Newspaper Club kicked off two weeks ago and students have been working on their contributions on Mondays and Fridays during lunch time. Students do not need to give up every lunch play on these days but if they have something they would like to produce for the newspaper they can attend these sessions to complete their work. We have already seen some exciting ideas including: sport recaps, cartoons and drawings by Year 4 artists, interviews with teachers and feature pieces about AISHK Life.
All newspaper club contributors have agreed to the following guidelines:
As contributors of the Newspaper Club, we agree to:
- Produce original pieces of work (writing, illustration, photography etc).
- Produce high-quality content relevant to the context, purpose and audience of the Year Four Newspaper.
- Work collaboratively and fairly with other contributors.
- Liaise with editors about the specifics of our work (length, content, appropriateness, variety etc)As editors of the Newspaper Club, we agree to:
- Oversee the works of contributors, ensuring the pieces of work are of high quality and relevance.
- Provide constructive feedback to contributors.
- Assign ‘projects’ to contributors fairly.
- Ensure all members are on task and use the allocated time wisely.
- Liaise with the supervising teacher if unsure about the specifics of a piece of work.
Students have had three peer support lessons this term. The focus this year is Health. The Year 6 leaders have been running effective lessons around “What it means to be healthy”, “Diet” and “Sleep”. The lessons have been fun and engaging and students are enjoying forming some friendships across the primary school and with students in their house.
The LEAP Van is here again! Healthy Harold and the LEAP Van Team are running sessions across the primary school. Year 4 are learning about how to make good choices, how these choices impact our bodies and how to be an upstander with their peers in social situations.
Wizard of Oz
We are all familiar with the epic, magical story of ‘The Wizard of Oz’. ‘I’m melting!’, ‘I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore Toto!’, ‘’Follow the Yellow Brick Road.’ We’ve all heard these lines, we all know the song and our incredible cast of 2018 will bring this remarkable, sparkling story to life for our community in Week 9. There will be four performances on Thursday 14 June 7.30pm, Friday 15 June 7.30pm, Saturday 16 June matinee at 2.30pm, and closing night Saturday 16 June at 7.30pm. Ticket sales are now open. So please come and join us to be a part of what is a life changing experience and certainly a time in their schooling lives that our students will never forget. Look out for further information coming your way soon.
