Calling All Inventors!


This week the Year 1 students have been busy designing arcade games, as the final part of our Inquiry unit. After watching a video called Caine’s Arcade the students have been very excited about using their skills to design a cardboard arcade game. Students are busily beginning to cut holes, tape boxes together and create prizes and tickets for their game. Along the way students are discovering that sometimes designs need to be modified and improvements made. At the end of next week the children will get to visit other Year 1 classrooms to see each arcade. Well done future inventors!



If you have not returned your permission forms for the excursion to Scienceworks can you please send them along on Monday. Numbers need to be confirmed for buses.

As we will be on an excursion the students in Year 1 will miss the Book Week dress up day. There will not be a whole school parade. On Wednesday the students do attend an incursion with an author, which will be very exciting.

Next term the Year 1s do have a special dress up day as part of the Inquiry unit we will be doing, so save up your crafty skills for then.

Have a great weekend.

The Year 1 Team
