the anxiety project

"The teacher-student relationship is pivotal in the educational experience and often leaves a lasting impact on students' lives. The significance of the teacher-student relationship, and how a positive connection between educators and learners can lead to not only better academic outcomes but also personal development can at times, be underestimated. Here, we explore the impact this relationship can have on a student in their development."

Lismore show entrant

Congatulations to Charlie who won second prize for her colouring entry at the Lismore Show recently.

happy prize winners

We were excited to win $1,000 worth of stationary this week. The senior class entered a competition explaining how we 'stick together' at Newrybar Public School.

2-3 maths

The 2-3 class have been learning about different ways to represent fractions and also investigated how long you can make a paper chain with one sheet of A4 paper. Students discussed the different types of chains and what they can be made from before testing ways to make their own chains. The longest chain made was 2.2 metres.

K-1 inquiry

The K-1 class have been busy inquiring about, 'How do we find places?' They looked at different maps, recorded their wonderings and thoughts, and wrote directions for each other to follow to various destinations in the school. Each week, four students take a travelling bear home to share things about where they live and places they may visit during the week with their teddy. We also sent books about Australia, letters and mini flat versions of ourselves to our pen pals at Westmount Public School in Thorold, Canada. We will be sending emails and snail mail to talk about the differences in where we live, and how we move around.

une discovery voyager

On Thursday the Discovery Voyager team from The University of New England brought their mobile natural history museum to our school. Students learned about ecology, observed mini beasts in the playground, and completed an escape room challenge.

senior art

The seniors have been busy creating baskets during Visual Arts this term. Students have been using traditional materials and techniques and have used the properties of wet and dry cane to be able to manipulate the cane without it breaking.

K-1 maths

In the K-1 maths classroom, we have been consolidating our addition and subtraction skills. We are learning to use a number of different strategies and we are also learning about doubling numbers. We enjoyed reading the story 'Two of Everything'. We have also been learning about the months of the year. We can read them, order them and know how many days are in each month.

Senior Inquiry

The senior class have been investigating bushfires and the impact they can have on people and the environment. We are learning about the difference between grass fires and bushfires and which parts of the Australian continent are at greatest risk of bushfires.

box play

Students have worked in teams and had fun this past week during break times with left over boxes.
