Essendon Footballers visit NGPS

On Tuesday 19th February we had two very special visitors to our school. Brendan Goddard and Mark Baguley came to talk to the grade 5/6 students. Even if you are not an Essendon supporter it was fantastic to have two professional AFL players visit New Gisborne Primary. They came to explain a little bit about what it was like to be an AFL player. We heard all about their training routines, how important nutrition was as well as the sacrifices they had made to achieve their goal of becoming a professional football player.
The students asked lots of interesting questions and at the end some Essendon fans were lucky enough to get their footy jumpers or footballs signed.

Football players visit schools to publicise AFL and their team but also to inform and educate us.

Do you think it is worthwhile having them visit schools?

Bullying Videos

 Over the last few days we have spent a large amount of time discussing the different types of bullying, the impact that bullying has on the victim and some of the things we could be doing to stop bullying. We watched and discussed the following three videos.

Picture Story Books in Grade 5/6…..

Last week we learnt that picure story books are important for all ages and that even though we are big grade 5/6 children we are never too old to sit on the floor and listen to a story. Of course there was some work to do in regards to the two stories. We were looking for hidden messages. Share the following Youtube videos (make sure you have permission first) with your family and friends and see if they can find the hidden messages.

When we did this piece of writing in class what did you find most difficult?

What is your favourite style of writing and why?

Have you found any other picture books that you think have hidden messages?
