In order to maximise the time they spend outdoors the children have started to learn the skills of orienteering. Map reading, teamwork, position and direction along with resilience and stamina are all skills that will be developed during this topic. Fortunately most of the children have remembered their left from their right during lockdown although Mr Hird has been busy locating all the Control Markers on the school’s orienteering course which has become somewhat overgrown in the last 6 months!
One of the first tasks of any new school year is to elect new representative to the School Council. While the COVID 19 pandemic will see the role of School Council change and adapt, it is likely to be busy for everyone involved. Vote for by all the children in Year 6, the Scarlet Class representatives are set to be role models for the rest of the school. Congratulations both of you!
It has been a very busy start to the year in Scarlet Class, the teachers have been really impressed with the way in which the children have settle back into the routines of school so quickly. The children have been learning about the street artist ThankyouX and have been creating cube style street art that tells the story of their own interests.
School will open for Year 6 at 8.45am tomorrow, please make your way to the junior playground gates where you'll see your teachers. Home time collection will be at 2.50pm.
