Tonight was a very proud night to be a teacher or parent of some of our students at Beacy Primary. Four students from grade 3/4 and four students from grade 5/6 competed at the Annual Lions Club Junior Public Speaking Competition. All students spoke very well and put a lot of effort into their speeches. Beaconsfield Primary won the competition with each student receiving a medal.
The grade 3/4 competition was a great experience for some of our new public speakers, where Jacob was selected as the winner. The grade 5/6 competition saw four of our experienced speakers battle it off in what really was nothing short of an amazing contest. Each of the students could have easily been crowned the winner, however Public Speakin guru Mitch was chosen as the winner. These two boys will advance to the Zone final next Wednesday the 19th of September.
Well done to
Alex, Jacob, Harry and Tahlia (3/4)
Maddy, Mitch, Olivia and Ben (5/6)
Using the information from last weeks research create an A3 poster of your famous inventor. Please ensure the information is presented neatly, edited correctly and written in your own words. The poster can include pictures and labelled diagrams. Feel free to use coloured poster paper from your teacher.
Anyone with a basketball singlet from the Hoop Time competition two weeks ago please return to Mr O’Shea immediately.
Today the Grade 5’s had a visit from the Tiger Paws (Richmond Football Club volunteers) where they participated in two sessions revolved around physical activity and nutrition. The physical activity component involved the students learning about running mechanics and then practising these different techniques through timing gates, as well as learning a few football skills. The nutrition session saw the students learning about the three major macronutrients and how we can incorporate these in a balanced, healthy meal. The students were allowed to eat a variety of different nutrients, practice preparing their own meals and learn about good hygiene practices.
No need to make lunches for the kids anymore parents! The grade 5’s now have all the knowledge they need to stay fit and healthy.
Thankyou to the Tiger Paws program for a very enjoyable day.
Today the Grade 5/6 girls travelled down to Mornington to compete in the Regional Girls T-Ball. The first game was a nailbiter with the girls coming back from 5 runs down to unfortunately lose it in the end by just one run. The second game saw our Beacy girls take on a very competitive and well drilled Toorak PS who had some very experienced players. Our third game was the girls best game with a comprehensive 18-5 win to finish off a very fun day. The girls played with excellent sportmanship and determination and it was very pleasing to see the improvement from the first game to the last game.
Well done to
Thankyou also to those parents who drove the girls and came along to support.
Your homework task this week is to write a 3-4 minute speech. The speech will be on the topic-
‘You are a Travel Guide. Your job is to explore your local area – as if you’ve never seen it before! Document what you find. Tell us all about your discoveries and why we should visit.’
(Hint: think about all the exciting things to do in the area you live in)
Your speech must include the following:
Beginning- begins in an interesting way
Central Theme evident and logical sequence developed
Research – supports opinions with facts and/or examples
Language – Appropriate use of language – clear, correct sentences, words well chosen, informative
Ending- strong, summary of main points, as close to time as possible.
This speech will be used for the Public Speaking Competition for those that want to participate. Not all students have to present their speeches, however all students MUST write a speech.
Friday Morning Sport will be cancelled due to rain and unsafe playing conditions.
The sun was shining and so were our Beacy Runners. Everyone that participated gave it their best and showed excellent attitude and determination. Well done to all our runners and an extra congratulations to all those who finished in the top 10 and will move onto to Regionals later in the term.
