Grade 3 & 4 Games- Con

This term in grade 3 and 4 students have been involved in all aspects of the design process by investigating, designing, creating, testing and evaluating their own digital games. Students have been working with their classroom teachers and Mr Branson to feedback, test and improve their unique games on Pyonkee and Scratch using iPads and netbooks.

On Wednesday the 26th August students are inviting 3/4 parents to come and see the result of this learning with our very own Mildura West Game-Con! 

It will be held across the 3/4 Classrooms from 2:15pm, starting in 3C/3H.  

We hope that parents and carers can make it to celebrate student work and enjoy these amazing games that students have created using digital technology. 

Grade 3 & 5 NAPLAN Student Reports

Individual student reports on the NAPLAN tests will be sent home on Monday. These reports give you information on how your child went on the tests of Reading, Persuasive Writing, Language Conventions and Numeracy. These reports give you a snapshot of how your child performed on the day and their level of achievement against national averages. Please speak to your classroom teacher if you have any further questions or would like to discuss their result.

Invention Convention

The Invention Convention was a huge success! Here is a quick time lapse video of the huge effort that went into staging the convention. We'll be posting some more detailed video about the student learning the coming weeks.
