Yesterday our captains of the school took the CHIPS bus to Lysterfield Lake to participate in a fun day of activities with Captain Eric and the other CHIPS volunteers.
The day consisted of some sailing out in the lake, followed by a bike ride and some fun games at the end.
Our leaders were very grateful for the opportunity to take part in the day and learnt a lot about sailing, leadership and the connection between Indigenous Australians and the land.
Yesterday some of the grade 5/6s competed in the Lightning Prem Regional Softball day. The opposition teams were very tough, but all the boys tried very hard, learn a lot of about softball and had a lot of laughs along the way.
After our fantastic Digital Technologies Incursion on Thursday, reflect on the day and what we did. Create a reflection page that addresses the following questions:
- What activity did you enjoy the most? Why?
- What was something that was challenging? Why?
- What new information or skills did you learn?
- What are you confident with now that you could teach someone else about?
- What is something you would like to learn more about? Why?
You can present this information anyway you like, but it must be detailed, attractive and display a personal best effort.
