SRC Report Term 2 2022
SRC Report Term 2 2022 SRC Report Congratulations to our 2022 SRC members. We have already had three meetings and I have been extremely impressed with their enthusiasm and ability […]
On the 16th and 17th of March, Chris Collin, the celebrated children’s author, came to Seacliff Primary school, to do presentations for each class at our school. He spoke about making reading fun for all ages, even those who are not in the ‘target audience’.
Thank you and farewell to departing 2021 staff!
As the school year is now drawing to an end, we wish to publicly acknowledge, on behalf of the Seacliff School Community, staff and parents, the wonderful contribution of the contracts and permanent teachers who have worked tirelessly this year and over the many years that they have worked for the Department for Education.
During these past few weeks of term, Room 16 have been investigating shapes. We began with identifying and recognizing 2D shapes. We know 2D shapes are flat and have edges and corners. As an activity. we used pop-sticks or matchsticks to create the shapes we knew. We then labelled them with the shape name, number of sides and corners.
Throughout the last term at Seacliff Primary, in my role as Environmental Intern, I’ve had the pleasure of working with a number of students from across the year levels on redeveloping the ‘Butterfly Walk’ on the eastern side of the school. Unfortunately, necessary tree removals and time had left the area looking rather run down.
Stretch-thinking and learning observations
We began the session by working on a stretch-thinking task where our learning was observed and shared. The observations about what was seen and heard was shared as feedback at the conclusion of the task.
The remainder of the session focused on each school reflecting on our work over the year.
Each school was given a range of questions to discuss and respond to with our results shared with the audience of students and leadership.
On the 12th of November, 2 teams of students went to St John’s Grammar School in Belair to compete in a Maths competition. The Year 7 team consisted of: Harveen Kaur, Jaxon Mossop, Cooper Berry and Jordan Rowe. The Year 6 team was made up of: Minami Doubell, Georgie Hunt, Liam O’Neill and Tyler Gillon. We were enthusiastic to participate in an academic challenge against other schools.
In HASS, this term Room 5 have been focusing on Geography. The class has thoroughly enjoyed exploring their world and places that are significant to them. As part of this unit, we have been going on a class plane to travel around the world. We have a designated student pilot that chooses a country they would like to travel to. The pilot sits at the front of the plane and takes us to their desired country. We have recently flown to Mexico, Netherlands, England, and Australia.
