On Wednesday 23rd June our students were lucky to attend a presentation by Martin from The Resilience Project. Martin is an amazing presenter, he is funny, thought provoking and very engaging.

On Thursday 29th July at 6.30pm our wonderful parents/carers will get the opportunity to come to the school and listen to Martin speak about Gratitude, Empathy and Mindfulness in a way that will make you laugh and cry. I will send more details out soon, however for now, please save the date.

Enjoy your break.

[06/24/21]   Just a reminder that Friday 25th of June is the last day of Term 2 with an early finish of 2:30pm. We wish you all a happy and safe school holiday period and hope you get to spend some quality time together as a family. We look forward to seeing you all back for Term 3 on Monday 12th of July.

This term the Foundation students explored the topic ‘Seasons’. They looked at seasonal changes and discovered how artists represent the different characteristics of weather. They focused on different printing and painting techniques and experimented with colour, texture and pattern.

The Year One students looked at how artists represent ‘Birds’ in a range of different forms. They experimented with various drawing and painting techniques to show qualities of line, colour and texture.

The Year Two students investigated landscapes and cityscapes in Visual Art this term and recorded their responses in drawings and paintings. Students explored ways of incorporating their own knowledge and the artist’s interpretations into creating new artworks using paint, markers, soft pastel and pencil.

In Year Three and Four students looked at geometric and organic shapes and how artists, such as Joan Miro and Henri Matisse, represented shapes in expressive ways. Students explored painting, collage and weaving and were provided with opportunities to reflect and discuss the processes and results of their own and others’ artworks.

Our Year 5 & 6 students participate in electives at Aintree PS. The students explored Community-Based Art and discovered how art can inspire transformation. They began to understand the meaning of a mural and the value of collaborative art. The students had fun creating a work of art while working with other students in their class. I think you will agree, they are stunning, well done students.

On Tuesday 25th May, our school leaders (Grade 3 – 6) participated in the GRIP Student Leadership Conference at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. We travelled in by train and the students were great representatives for our school throughout the whole day. The conference provided our students with some useful tips in their roles as School Leaders. They now have a clearer vision, a greater understanding and ideas for their time as an Aintree PS student leader.

On Friday the 21st of May, the Foundation students took part in a bear hunt as part of our literacy program. Students searched around the school, looking in windows for any bears, while continuing to learn about the letters B and H and the sounds these letters make. The Foundation students found many bears of all shapes and sizes, throughout the morning. They finished off the session with a teddy bear picnic, where all students took their bears to the basketball court for a picnic. Whilst we were there we had a special visit from The Very Cranky Bear. All students had a great morning hunting for bears and sharing a picnic together.

[05/27/21]   Dear Aintree Families,
Just a reminder that today is a pupil free day which means there is no remote learning or webex meetings with teachers today. This begins on Monday.

Also - if you require onsite learning next week due to being a permitted worker and having no alternative care for your children, please complete the form that was attached to Compass yesterday and return it by 2 pm today. Emailing it to the school email is fine to do. You will need to supply documentation stating you are a permitted worker.

Yesterday was National Sorry Day, this day gives people the opportunity to come together and share the steps towards healing for people of the Stolen Generation. Our students discussed this in their classrooms.

Foundation M & B students used the school value of COLLABORATION to create this beautiful piece of art to acknowledge sorry day. Well done teachers and students, the art work is stunning.

[05/27/21]   Dear Aintree Families,

Acting Premier James Merlino has announced a snap ‘Circuit Breaker’ lockdown from midnight tonight (27/05/21) till midnight next Thursday (3/6/21).

[05/26/21]   We are extremely proud to share the following email we received today from a member of the public. It is always amazing that people take the time to write an email and share it with our school.

Well done to our students and teachers that attended the GRIP Leadership conference yesterday, you should all be very proud of yourselves.

Please read the following email received this morning:

Good morning Aintree Primary School.

I wanted to pass on some good feedback towards your students and staff, at Aintree Primary School.

I was on the 3:16 V/line train, from Melbourne Southern Cross, and had the pleasure of being on the same carriage as your students and staff.

As I boarded, and walked down the carriage, I was offered a seat by numerous students, who displayed wonderful manners. They were all very well behaved and were managed really well by two of your staff members.

I can only imagine that the logistics of being charged with the responsibility of a group of students, in such circumstances, would bring a great deal of stress to the staff members, and I really think they performed really well, and should be acknowledged for this.

I don’t think schools these days get enough positive feedback, so I wanted to make sure you did get what was really well deserved .

Thank you for your time.

In STEM last week Year 5 students proved that gas is a state of matter because it takes up space! Air (gases) trapped in the plastic cup prevented water from entering the cup when it was dunked under water, as a result, the tissue inside the cup stayed dry.

We love the enthusiasm showed by Dev Lal, Kyan Luangxayanthone, Tilat Shah and Nelson Anyuon.

We congratulate all of our Junior School Council - presented at assembly this week.

Please ensure your child brings their Art Smock to school.

Recently in STEM the Year 4 students constructed flowers out of paper cups and pipe cleaners. The yellow pipe cleaners represent the anthers of the flower and the pink pipe cleaner is the stigma. Paint powder was used to represent pollen. Students’ makeshift bees flew through the flowers, collecting pollen and moving it from the anther to the stigma, simulating the process of pollination.

We love to see the smiles on the faces of our students and the display of curiosity and creativity, well done Year 4 students.

Our Week 2 and 3 students of the week. Well done all!

[05/05/21]   Volunteers needed!

The Breakfast Club at Aintree Primary School has been a great success. In just over two weeks of opening the Breakfast Club we have had more than 300 student visits.

These student numbers are fantastic, the students are very respectful and most importantly are learning to serve themselves breakfast and wash their dishes!

We currently have two wonderful volunteers, however we would love more volunteers.

The Breakfast Club is open five mornings a week and we require helpers each day.

Please contact Sharon at [email protected] or contact the front office to express your interest.

When exploring the Letter O, Foundation S and Foundation Q students engaged in a language experience. Their teachers cut up the oranges and all students were able to eat the delicious fruit. Some people thought the oranges were juicy and sweet, while others thought they were very sour! It was great fun and everyone practised the sound Oo makes.

On Friday Foundation B listened to the narrative titled ANZAC Ted. We discussed what happened in the text and shared our knowledge of ANZAC day and what it means to us. Afterwards, the children made excellent attempts at drawing a picture of ANZAC Ted, which was directed by their teacher.

[04/26/21]   Art Smocks required in Term 2!

Ms Minto, our wonderful Art Teacher requires all her students to bring in an art smock. Art smocks can be old t-shirts, old business shirts or an art smock. Classes will be using paint and dye to make amazing pieces of art and we would prefer your children's clothes not to have paint or dye all over them. Please supply your child/ren with an art smock.

Our Year 1's and our Year 4's Buddy Time.
What a great time had by all. Our Year 4 students wrote
and published their own personal narratives and shared them with our Year 1's. It gave our Year 4 students an authentic audience to write for, and our Year 1's got the opportunity to enjoy a story with an older student. They also enjoyed sharing a picture story book together followed by lunch outside.
Look out for more `Buddy Time' photos throughout the term.

What a wonderful morning it was at the Town Centre this morning for the dedication ceremony to commemorate the completion of the Aintree Walk of Honour. Thank you to those students that came into school last week to help Ms Minto make the beautiful wreaths that were laid by the reflection pond and flame today. Thanks also to those students and families who attended the ceremony this morning. You represented Aintree Primary School well and we are proud of you for volunteering to do so.
