Ormiston Remote Learning Highlights and Olympic Spirit Awards
Over the past fortnight, I have continued to be blown away by our students’ contributions to the remote learning program. During Assembly, I highlighted the exceptional learning that has been occurring in each year level. The students in all year levels should be congratulated for their achievements throughout the term and in particular, the following areas this term:
Our Foundation students are now all confidently and fluently reading decodable texts independently.
Our Year 1s developed their creativity, problem solving and persistence when exploring forces by creating their own Rube Goldberg Machines.
Our Year 2s are now segmenting their spelling words into syllables and beginning to use spelling rules to add suffixes to words with increasing confidence.
Our Year 3s are now experts in Australian Geography and have been teaching the community about our significant natural features and landmarks.
Our Year 4s are budding biologists who have been developing their understanding of some of the complex ecosystems that exist around the world.
Our Year 5s have been seeking out how to encourage sustainability and can confidently explain how we can support the environment through housing design.
Our Year 6 students have been investigating the experiences of migrants and have developed informative monologues designed to help others to understand the phases of migration, and the complex range of push and pull factors that influenced different people’s decisions to move countries.
It was an absolute joy to share two of our Year 1 students, Olive and Estelle’s, Rube Goldberg Machines with the school community during Assembly.
Some of the key adjectives that classroom and specialist teachers used when nominating this fortnight’s award winners were: courageous, persistent, thorough, initiative, thoughtful, creativity, focussed, curious and committed.
