Boomerang Bags

Fiona from Boomerang Bags came to our values assembly yesterday to talk to us about the local community project.  Boomerang Bags works to reduce the use of plastic bags by engaging local communities in the making of Boomerang Bags – community made using recycled materials, Boomerang Bags provide a free, fun, sustainable alternative to plastic bags. By getting involved with Boomerang Bags, you are participating in a national movement that celebrates a local grassroots initiative, community building and sustainability.

After assembly Fiona worked with students from Coronet and Skippers to create a Boomerang Bag for the project.  We had great fun!  We plan to create more bags at school for this brilliant community project.

Scribble Bots

Today we made robots (without brains!)  They are able to draw wonderful and crazy pictures?  I wonder how they do that?

Little Makers


WeDo 2.0

During last term 8 intrepid Coronet explorers were the first students at Shotover Primary School to discover and learn about programming our new WeDo 2.0 Robots.  During Term 3 we used our learning to connect (ask questions, find information and sort our ideas) and to create (programme and test out our programming).  Yesterday we finished our movies so that we could communicate our learning with you.
