Yesterday year 1 students went to Popeye Village. The outing was related to games and play. Play is essential for a child’s emotional, social and physical development. Through play children work out who they are and how the world around them works: Play helps children to develop confidence and self-esteem. Here are some photos of the event:
Today all the teaching staff from Kindergarten to Primary attended a professional development meeting as part of the CoPE Session. The event took place in the school hall and the speakers and programme coordinators were Ms Annabelle Warrington and Ms Kate Barron. We discussed the power of storytelling as our school will be participating in the programme: Storytelling Schools. It was a session where the teachers become learners and we all took part in the activities that later on we will be doing with our students. Here are some photos of the event:

Next weekend Esplora, in collaboration with the Directorate for Digital Literacy and Transversal Skills within MEDE and Avantis, would like to invite Year 5 and Year 6 students (for scholastic year 2019-2020) for a series of Family Digital Quest weekends. Choose one day and join us for the first event which will take place on Saturday 27th July and on Sunday 28th July from 10:00 to 15:00. Students together with their family and friends will be enticed to select one of the themes and complete a quest using their LearnPads. An illusion-room family photo opportunity will also be available through the use of the LearnPad’s.
Choose one of the themes from Pirates, Unicorns, Gaming or Vlogging. Follow the Pirate Captain training course to learn important skills that every good pirate captain must have or help a family of unicorns overcome obstacles that lie between them and their new home. Use your gamer skills to solve a mystery or practice your vlogging skills to build your video channel.
