EPro8 Technology Challenge

In T2 Week 7, 8 children from St Albans Year 5 and 6 competed in the EPro8 Technology Challenge. Team 1: The St Albans Einsteins consisted of Charlotte, Sophie, Magnus and Isaac.
Team 2: The St Albans Wizards consisted of Josie, Erin, Rory and Tim.

Throughout the competition the teams had 2 1/2 hours to complete 4 major challenges which included numerous mini challenges. Both teams had to work collaboratively as a team to problem solve. Congratulations to both our teams who made St Albans proud competing against tough competition and in tough challenges.

Young Writers Workshop

A few weeks ago a small team of Year 3 and 4 students were chosen to work alongside Gail Ingram in the Young Writers Workshop.  This workshop was held over 2 days and their writing focus was on developing their poetry skills. These children beavered away over the two days creating, drafting and re-crafting their wonderful imaginative ideas.

Pictured here are Luca, Hannah, Joey, Harry, Evie, Mikko, Millie, Zena, AJ and Rosie working with Gail. Here is a small sample of some of their awesome poems.

Scribble world  

I see ABSOLUTELY nothing
but arguments. The colours
are screaming and shouting.
Purple yells, “Why am I even here?”
Blue answers, “Because
Joey scribbled you!”
Brown screams, “Stop arguing or
you’ll get rubbed out.”

Mad Dad

My dad is very mad,
he’s a beast all the time,
he doesn’t even pat the cats!
he doesn’t let me do a thing,
he has no respect,
agh help! my dad’s tickling me
to death.

Poseidon’s Realm.

Poseidon’s Realm   
under the sea,
it’s 12:00 midday.
It feels happy and cozy,
yet it is
under the sea.

He hugs and smiles,
rolls his eyes,
and gives his son
a call. His wife Nythia,
a water nymph,
smiles at her husband.

In Poseidon’s realm,
you can feel the water
moving, the sea creatures
bob in and out,
in and out,
in and out,
the marble
columns are sea-green
like Poseidon’s eyes.

It’s exactly the right
Nothing to
fear, it’s all
