Principal’s Message “Education brings about opportunity and in turn inspiration.” Bill Frist

Welcome to Week 8! This term continues to pass by quickly. Students are working well in class and involving themselves in the many extra-curricular activities on offer. Our dance groups are rehearsing regularly in preparation for their performances at the Central Coast Dance Festival and Star Struck next week.

Classy Work

In writing, 1M have been learning about persuasive writing and its intended purpose. The children have been learning about modality and using a wide range of persuasive techniques to convince the reader that “All families should own a pet.” Thanks to Orion, Sage, Jack and Nellie for sharing your writing with me. I really enjoyed reading your writing and your convincing arguments. Annika, Leilani, Arlo and Malia, also shared their amazing Aboriginal artwork. It’s always so wonderful to see such versatility and creativity and individuality shown in each student’s art interpretation and creation. Well done, 1M!

Welcome to our Practicum students

A very big welcome to our practicum teaching students Miss Bella Magri and Miss Jayde Crowther who will be doing their practical teaching experience here at Copacabana Public School. Mrs Byrson and Mr Mensforth will be working alongside our teaching practicum students. We wish Miss Magri and Miss Crowther the very best in their practicum teaching rounds at Copacabana.

Everyday Maths Hub

The NSW Department of Education has developed an Everyday Maths Hub, designed to assist in supporting parents and carers to engage with their child’s mathematical development through fun, practical and creative activities called “Everyday Maths”. The webpage hosts a wide variety of topics from Kindergarten to Year 10, linked to the NSW Mathematics syllabus used in all NSW Public Schools. Topics cover everything from number sense and algebra and measurement and geometry, to statistics and probability. Resources for each topic include games, books, websites, puzzles, hands-on activities such as building with Lego, drawing maps etc and activities that parents and children can enjoy together. Attached is the link to access the Numeracy Hub https://education.nsw.gov.au/campaigns/mathematics/everyday-maths

STEM – Teachers are learners as well

Last week, the teachers participated in an engaging STEM workshop using the SPLAT tool to create a various engineering design. The Splat tool is a template that combines isometric elements to generate the five core 3D shapes (objects) for designing anything. These include cube, cone, sphere, cylinder, and square based pyramid. Many designers will always use these core 3D shapes (objects) as guidelines and draw objects within them. This is often called crating.

Research supports the link between early development of spatial skills and success in STEM subjects. We live in a 3D world and children explore and create using visual spatial skills. In fact, thinking and communicating visually in 3D stimulates critical and creative thinking, and is essential for conceptual understanding, spatial reasoning, ideating, rapid visualisation, divergent thinking, problem solving and expressing ideas.

Winter weather means time to check clothing is labelled

As the cold weather is now upon us, I ask you to check that all jumpers and jackets are clearly labelled with your child’s name and class. It is so much easier to ensure those misplaced items are returned to their owner if they are clearly marked.

School Security Our school security hotline is 1300 880 021. Please call the hotline if you see or hear anyone on the premises during out of school hours.

Semester One Reports

Semester 1 reports will be going home during the last week of the school term. Please take the opportunity to sit down with your child to acknowledge and celebrate all that they have achieved. Each student should be very proud of their achievements and endeavour to set themselves some learning goals for Semester 2.

5 Lands Walk This year's 5 Lands Walk will be held on the first weekend of the school holidays from Friday 25 June to Sunday 27 June with the main walk occurring on the Saturday. The walk is a daylong festival along 10km of spectacular coastline from Macmasters Beach to Terrigal . This year we have student photography from Copacabana PS on display in the Copacabana Surf Club, as well as a whole school art display. Throughout the day visit each of the surf clubs to learn more about the diverse cultures and the way of life of our nation's First People. They will be showcasing traditional arts and crafts, food, music where you can be immersed in their culture. Go to http://www.5landswalk.com.au to register. An outline of the program is included in this newsletter.

Queen’s Birthday Public Holiday

Monday, 14th June is the Queen’s birthday public holiday. School will resume as normal on Tuesday, 15th June. Wishing everyone a safe and relaxing long weekend.

Yours in Education,

Student Wellbeing

Developing friendship skills

To develop good friendship skills, now and later, it is important children being developing the following skills:

• Self-control: being able to wait for what they want, using words to express their feelings rather than acting disrup-tively or misbehaving, giving others a turn with toys.

• Welcoming: being able to approach and respond to others positively (e.g. with a smile and greeting such as “hello”).

• Assertiveness: being able to say what they would like. • Consideration: being able to say “please” and “thank you”, taking turns, being able to lead and follow what others

want to do, being able to cooperate and share. • Play skills: being willing to take part in games and make suggestions for play. • Communicating: talking and listening to others in a friendly way, saying something to start a conversation. • Helping: being willing to help others. • Prediction: being able to understand how other might be feeling based on their behaviour, being able to predict

how their behaviour might affect others. • Thinking: such as about alternatives when things go wrong (eg if other children want to play something, different,

thinking of whether to join them or find someone else to play with.) • Coping being able to respond to rejection, disappointment or disapproval without experiencing too much distress

or winning without gloating. • Empathy: being able to respond to others’ feelings with understanding. • Flexibility: being open to hearing or learning about other points of view or ways of doing things.

It takes a long time to learn these skills and we continue to develop them well into adulthood. We can help children develop these skills by being aware of what friendships and empathy skills they are developing, playing with them and giving some gentle coaching when children are really struggling with something. Children develop these skills though daily experiences; however, if parents are aware of them they can give a hand at moments when help is needed.

The team was undefeated in their pool and made the semi-final. In the semi-final, four tries were, unfortunately disallowed. Despite this, the boys still managed to come 3rd. Kobie also won man of the match in their game against the Hunter Region. Go Kobie!

Touch Football On Thursday, Ariana M, Oliver M, Tyler S and Axl M attend the combined Southern Central Coast/Brisbane Waters PSSA Zone Touch Football trials. After playing several games, all 4 students were successful in being selected in their respective sides and will now trial for the Sydney North team. Congratulations! What an achievement!

STEM Group News

Well done Copa on two more great weeks in STEM! Stage 1 read Everything you need for a Treehouse and they were very inspired to create some brilliant designs. They were

very imaginative and deciding how people would be able to get in and out of their treehouses.

Stage 2 were given the challenge of making three different bubble wands but were only able to use three pipe cleaners.

They found the challenge quite tricky and thought of different ways to improve their designs. Stage 2 also did some com-

putational STEM and have been enjoying doing some Scratch coding. They also used the Splat 3D tools to draw some ren-

dered coloured cubes.

In the coming weeks, we will be excavating cookies, making a rollercoaster plus doing some Dash-bot racing!

Attendance Matters

Regular attendance at school is vital in supporting a quality education for all children. Arriving to school on time is also

vital for the success of students not only academically and socially but also for learning the importance of punctuality and

responsibility which we know is important later in life. Students’ attendance is regularly monitored and we do become

concerned when a students’ attendance is 85% or below.

Avoca Before and After School Care These last 2 weeks the children at Coast OOSH have been celebrating and learning about Reconciliation Day. The things we did include were: - learning about the High Court decision made with Eddie Mabo taking leadership for the first land recognition of our First Nations people of Australia; - all children took turns reading the ‘Acknowledgment of Country’ each day and together we collaborated on the symbol-ic artwork; - we decorated Aboriginal Flag cookies using yummy icing and played ‘Buringin’, an indigenous ball game; - we also encouraged the children to express how they see Reconciliation through a Reconciliation/Mabo - Poster Com-petition. We continue to acknowledge and celebrate our Aboriginal Heritage & History regularly at the service.

Code of Conduct

The children have been learning about how to treat others and how we can be part of a safe environment for all of us here at Coast OOSH through our Code of Conduct.

We developed a poster with the help of the children. We are now able to visualise the points in the Code of Conduct which all children are expected to sign when they first start at our service. We strive to provide a creative, inclusive, fun and safe place for children to spend their morning and afternoons each day.
