For the remainder of term 4 grade 5 and 2 students are visiting the new POD they will be moving on to in 2013.
Every Monday afternoon, grade 5 students head up to POD 3, while grade 2 students head up to POD 2.
In 2013 POD 2 will be the home of around 25 new faces and will wave goodbye to 20 students. It looks like it might be a busier POD in 2013!
So far we have been participating in a few ‘get to know you’ activities, singing, visual literacy work, learning new I.C.T skills such as how to use the desktop computers and netbooks as well as how to make cool interactive posters using Glogster!
YPCC students, how has your transition journey gone so far? Have you made any new friends?
We’d also love to hear if anyone around the globe has been through a transition process at school and has some advice for our grade 2 an 5 students.

Pod 2 teachers are seeking eight students to become writers for the Pod 2 blog.
Students must enjoy writing, enjoy I.C.T, be a good leader and a team player.
The application must include:
1. an opening sentence saying what you’re applying for
2. a list of your I.C.T strengths (what you’re good at on the computer)
3. a list of your leadership skills (how you can lead and work well as a team)
4. one sentence explaining why you want to be on the blogging team
5. sign or write your name at the bottom of the page.
Your application can be printed or hand written.
Please remember to check your spelling and punctuation; if you’re unsure, get a friend to check it!!
Hand your application to Laura or a home group teacher by the end of school next Monday (29th October).
*** Please note that applications have now closed.
Congratulations to Melina, Harmony, Britney, Chloe Calder and Kimmy making the blogging team.
Watch this space for upcoming student blogs.
In term 3 the students in POD 2 spent a few weeks finding out about different aspects of Australia. We looked at the history of Australia through the ‘First Australians’ and ‘Bad men’, Australian science, Australia at the Olympics and Australian young inventors through the Lego Robotics team.
Each student spent a little time getting a ‘taste’ for each area and then chose an area of passion for learning. To share their learning students created Glogsters.
Glogsters are interactive web based posters that can include text, images and video. They can be personalised and are pretty funky.
Check out some of the great work completed by our students.
