The students in 3/4DX have enjoyed using the new Chrome Books and iPads as part of their learning. The ICT has been implemented into writing, reading, maths lessons and of course BIFF. ICT allows for an innovative and engaging approach to learning, allowing students to go beyond the norms.
We look foward to contuning to utilise ICT in the classroom and the wonderful learning opportunities it brings.

In Mathematics this week in 3/4G, groups set off with Sphero to solve differentiated measurement related tasks. Tasks were built around displaying knowledge of units of measurement, perimeter and area. Collaboration was important with lots of discussion being had between students and trial and error used to problem solve.
Over the past few days 3/4G have been using a robot called Sphero in their Mathematics lessons. The task was to create a program that somehow displayed the multiplication tables that the students were working on. The students programmed Sphero to change colours, jump and move depending on the different answers to their multiplication tables.
We have been integrating coding and robotics throughout the curriculum to promote different ways of thinking and different ways to solve problems.
Thank you to the fundraising committee for providing money to buy the robots so that we can further promote coding and robotics into the curriculum at Bell Primary School!
The ICT team at Bell welcome you all to our first edition of our Bell PS Digitech Digest. With all the wonderful learning that is happening through the use of digital technologies we thought that an a occasional digest would be a great way to keep the community in the loop.

The second Grade 4 camp to Maldon is underway! After arriving safely around lunch the students got organised, selecting their bikes and getting the cabins organised. We all went on a lovely afternoon ride, seeing some of the back tracks Maldon has to offer before reaching the BMX track. The students are now tackling the obstacle course before getting ready for a delicious dinner.

The 3/4 students have been looking at physical science in Term 2 & were lucky enough to have a visit from Mad About Science this week. The focus of the incursion was simple machines. The students looked at the 6 different types of simple machines (can you name them?) and completed a number of hands on interactive activities to do with each. The students also built their understanding of compound machines!
