Inter class Tee ball
Wow - what a week!!
As well as today's exhausting but thrilling Tee ball tournament, we have also had members of 6L representing the school as part of the SEASAC gymnastics squad and several pupils in the final rehearsal stages of the Primary school production of Mulan, both on and behind the stage. Well done to everyone involved. We are all looking forward to finding out how Desiree gets on at today's competition and to watching the Mulan dress rehearsal on Monday afternoon.
Roll Up Landmine Awareness Day
On 4th April, Patana will be lending our support to the Roll Up Landmine Awareness Day. We would like to encourage all of our children to discuss the topic of landmines with their family and friends in an attempt to raise awareness of this cause.
As we have been learning about 'Spy Stories', I would like you to design and make a spy gadget at home using any boxes, materials, artifacts you can lay your hands on! It does not have to be the same as the one you are designing in ICT. Please bring it in to school to show.
Be prepared to present your gadget to the class. You will need to talk clearly and confidently about how you made it and be able to explain each special feature in detail. Your audience will be asking you questions about your super-gadget so make sure you give this some thought.
To link with our work on 'Spy Stories', we have been investigating ciphers and codes. For your home learning, I would like you to create a message containing between 10 and 20 words, and encode it using the Vigenere method using a key word of between 4 and 6 letters. Please email the message and key word to me by Sunday.
I will then forward your message to another member of the class who will attempt to decode your message by Wednesday. Please bring your partner's decoded message and all of your working to class on Wednesday.
