Creating online Jigsaw Puzzles

jigsawIt’s fun to take photos with friends. However Foundation, Grade 1 and Grade 2 children found it was even more fun to create and solve jigsaw puzzles with their photos.

Using the website Jigsaw Planet, they learned to upload a photo, select the shape and number of  jigsaw pieces and then assemble the pieces to solve the puzzle. As well as this, they could time themselves to see how long they took.

You can make your own too. Just click on the puzzle piece jigsaw

Hi from Jasmine

Recently two students from our school and their family left to work and attend school in Thailand. Today Jasmine left a comment on our blog and a new flag from Thailand appeared.

St Robert’s has Talent

microphoneThis popular event was held towards the end of last term.  It was great to see so many excited children rushing upstairs to the music room to sign up to display their talents. The auditions were held at lunchtimes and many enthusiastic children crammed into the room to support their friends and enjoy the fun.

Here we discovered many great talents – singers, dancers, children playing a variety of musical instruments, comedians and even a karate act. The finalists were selected and performed for the whole school along with some (ahem . . .) experienced celebrity judges.

Thanks to Miss Julie P for making this video showing short snippets of the Grand Final. The movie was originally published on the Prep Learning Community Blog.
