Where would you like to go on, in either of these parks?

Are the maps useful? Are they clear? How easy are they to follow?

Do they have all the information you need?

Why not work together as a group to do all of them and create a resort?!

  • Design a restaurant for  your Theme Park
  • Create a menu (with prices), and design a menu card/book

Swimming news

SWIMMING BLOCK ONE

For the last 10 weeks the Gr 3 students have been swimming once a week during their PE lesson.Throughout this time, the students have been working on their freestyle, backstroke and diving technique in addition to an introduction to some basic water safety. The students have been assessed and this result will be included in the January report. This swim block will come to an end this week as the pool will now be used by the middle and high school students. As a result, the students will now have three PE lessons in the gym. The next swim block will commence the week of March 17.
