As mentioned in the last ‘Loop’ an online Parent Survey has been activated for all families to complete by the end of term (Week 10 30/9). This survey only takes 10 minutes to complete and is very important in improving and maintaining a successful direction of the school. This is an opportunity for your feedback and support to make a difference. At this stage only two parents have replied. Please click on the following link and follow the prompts: http://apps.det.wa.edu.au/dest/55732 Thankyou. From the Junior Room: Weetbix Goes Visiting- Weetbix spent some great time with Toby, Brynie and Shaniya last week and this week he heads to Bree’s house for a visit. Students have been writng some wonderful diary entries about the visits. Weetbix, the book and the bag needs to be returned to school after 1-2 days. Our aim, as usual is to motivate the children to write and this should be an enjoyable experience. Your help in this would be greatly appreciated. Students have also been working hard on practising double-numbers (eg 5 + 5, 9 + 9, 15 + 15) which is an excellent First Steps Maths strategy to Weetbix is off to Toby’s house help calculate number problems. The Kindy & Pre-Primary students have also been working hard on their ‘Useless Loop Mini Communities’ which they have designed with cardboard and other materials. It is fantastic to see the younger students understand how the community works together.. From the Senior Room: Places, Food and Volcanos- the Senior students have been researching countries with volcanos and creating their own erupting volcano as part of the ‘Natural Kind & Pre-Primary students Disasters’ theme this term. Students will be busy in the kitchen designing their community creating a feast relevant to their research country this Wednesday…I think I might need to visit that one. Stay tuned to ‘In the Loop’ to see photos of the volcanos erupt. Last Wednesday, senior students were given the opportunity to attend a Shire Council Meeting held at the Useless Loop Conference Centre. Students witnessed first hand how local decisions are made and even had some input into the questions time. Thanks to Darren Pepworth for inviting us to this learning rich event which links very closely to the Senior Class’s study on Government. The Long Jump and Triple Jump events which are part of the Shark Bay Sports Carnival will be held for Useless Loop students Corey designing his volcano at the Town Oval Long Jump pit at 1:15pm this Thursday the 8th of September. Families are warmly invited to come and watch students compete in these events. The triple jump event will be held first for the Year 5 and 6 students followed by the long jump event for Year 1 to 6 students.
