Handover 2016 to 2017.


                               Deep in discussion with preliminary planning for 2017.

This afternoon saw the final 2016 TS session, with the 2016 Team handing over to the 2017 Team. This is how the session panned out: last couple of Star Carders to select…

Final instalment of the CHALLENGE.

Last but by no means least, our final class participant in the Challenge, Room 17. I had been given a few hints on what this was like so I was really looking forward to seeing it completed. With 3 TS Team members in the class I knew it would be good! At the moment it is in pride of place in the Office Foyer for all to see. I just love the attention to detail. What a fantastic effort! Well done, Room 17 you have done us all proud.

Yes, we DID give WOO a fitting final…

Reflections Part 1.

As half our Team is away on camp, I took the opportunity to ask our Year 5s to jot down their reflections on 2016.

The highlight was working as a team & getting things done. The good stuff were the events that happened eg R2SD, NWS2SD, W2SD and getting Platinum at the end of Term 1. The not so good was some of the Team didn't want to go to meetings or they didn't work their hardest. The best thing was working as a team & setting up events for students to use AT.

Meeting Beth Goodall from the Heart Foundation.

When Mrs Yates tried to register for WOO, she found out that the Heart Foundation would no longer be sponsoring it. We found out that there were LOTS of WOO stickers that needed to be used up, so we offered to take as many as we could have.

There were that many that Beth Goodall, from the HF, decided to deliver them. Mrs Yates asked Beth if she would like to meet the TS Team when she delivered the stickers back in September.

How We Walked Over October.

For this year's WOO we were very busy! We had hosted walks (W2SD), Walking Wednesday Passports and a Farewell WOO Challenge.

Our school was given lots of WOO stickers from the Heart Foundation, so we decided to have a classroom challenge. Each class was given 300 stickers & asked to create something showing AT. The classes were given all of October to complete the challenge. We are judging next week.

We have made some WW Passports where each Wednesday in October that you…

Winter Warm-up- WHY we did it.

We did the WWU because it is cold & some people are thinking it is too cold to walk to school, but you can still be active, no matter the weather. All parts of our colouring-in competition had something to do with Active Transport and the cold weather. We did have a bit of a hard time with the pictures but we ended up getting through it.

JUDGING Winter Warm-up: HOW we did it.

We  started our competition by all sitting down & brainstorming on how to start,  how to promote it, the images to use, who will judge what, when it will start & finish, putting up the display & how the entries will be collected.

The Judging:

First we  spread all of the entries (group by group) on tables so we could see them all at once. 

Then we selected 10-12 that we liked. Next we chose the 3 that were the most eye-catching, colourful & creative. We…
