 What's On At Christ The King

 

 

Talking to Your Kidshttp://www.christthekingdbay.qld.edu.au/latest-news-events/Pages/Talking-to-Your-Kids.aspxTalking to Your Kids<p>​Those who read the newsletter know I am extremely passionate about making sure our kids don’t lose the art of conversation in our digital world. Having a good vocabulary and good oral language helps children understand their world. Some kids find the world very confusing (we see this often through their behaviour) and in most instances it is because they do not understand what is going on around them.<br><br>It is essential that at every opportunity you talk to your kids. Ask the right questions … instead of how your day was, ask them what they did in Maths, what they enjoyed most about their day, what book they borrowed from the library, what surprised them etc. Ask them lots of “I wonder questions eg. I wonder why there is so much traffic, I wonder how many people live in that house, I wonder what would happen if …..etc.<br><br>Do not be afraid to say ‘no’ to them either. Kids do not have the cognitive development to decide what is best for them, that is why they have parents and carers. Give your kids some jobs around the house and to save nagging, give them a choice, would you like to make your lunch for tomorrow or wash up? Would you like to feed the dog or put out the rubbish?<br><br>Talking to your kids is the greatest gift you can give them.</p><p><img src="/latest-news-events/PublishingImages/talktokids.jpg" alt="talktokids.jpg" style="margin:5px;" /><br></p><p><br><br></p>
NAPLANhttp://www.christthekingdbay.qld.edu.au/latest-news-events/Pages/NAPLAN.aspxNAPLAN<p></p><p>NAPLAN is a nationwide measure through which parents, teachers, schools, education authorities, governments and the broader community can determine how well young Australians are developing the literacy and numeracy skills that provide the critical foundation for other learning and for their productive and rewarding participation in the community.<br><br><strong>Why NAPLAN is moving to online</strong><br><br>All schools are to transition to NAPLAN Online by 2022, as the online format improves NAPLAN.<br><br>NAPLAN Online provides a better assessment and more precise results.<br><br>One of the main benefits of NAPLAN Online is that it uses tailored (or adaptive) testing. This means that students receive questions better suited to their abilities, giving them more opportunity to demonstrate what they know and can do.<br><br>Feedback from students is that they find the online test more engaging.<br><br>For more information about the move to online, visit the <a href="https://www.nap.edu.au/online-assessment" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noreferrer">NAPLAN Online page</a> of the NAP website<br><br><strong>This year, between 11 and 21 May, our school will be doing NAPLAN Online</strong><br><br>NAPLAN assesses literacy and numeracy skills that students are already learning at school. On its own, NAPLAN is not a test that can be studied for and students are not expected to do so.<br><br>NAPLAN is just one aspect of a school’s assessment and reporting process – it does not replace ongoing assessments made by teachers about student performance; however, students and parents may use individual results to discuss progress with teachers.<br><br></p><p><strong>Please find below the timetable for Christ the Kings NAPLAN for 2021</strong></p><p><strong><img src="/latest-news-events/PublishingImages/naplan2021testschedule.jfif" alt="naplan2021testschedule.jfif" style="margin:5px;width:536px;" /><br></strong></p><h3>​Quick links<br></h3><ul dir="ltr"><li dir="ltr"><p>Up-to-date frequently asked questions and answers about NAPLAN Online: <a href="https://nap.edu.au/online-assessment/FAQs" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noreferrer">nap.edu.au/online-assessment/FAQs</a></p></li><li dir="ltr"><p> Public demonstration site for students to become familiar with the format of the online tests: <a href="https://nap.edu.au/online-assessment/public-demonstration-site" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noreferrer">nap.edu.au/online-assessment/public-demonstration-site</a></p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>Guidance about support available for students with disability to access NAPLAN tests: <a href="https://nap.edu.au/naplan/school-support/adjustments-for-students-with-disability" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noreferrer">nap.edu.au/naplan/school-support/adjustments-for-students-with-disability</a></p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>Support for parents and carers on the NAP website: <a href="https://nap.edu.au/naplan/parent-carer-support" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noreferrer">nap.edu.au/naplan/parent-carer- support</a><br></p></li></ul><p><br></p>
