Sharing our ‘Me ‘ bags.

Today the Year 1 and Year 2 students had an opportunity to share their ‘Me’ bags. They enjoyed sharing their special treasures and sharing what was important to them. They also loved their special letters from mum and dad.

   

   

They also had lots of fun making their ‘Superpowers’ capes. If you look closely you can see what some of their superpowers are: kindness, friendliness, responsibility, helping others, caring and never giving up.

                    

Art

Students in Year 1 and Year 2 painted scenes from Holy Week. They were asked to explain why these events were important. What do you think of their artwork?

  

I painted Jesus on the cross. This was an important event in Holy Week because Jesus died for us and it’s very sad and now we are happy. (Oli Beronic )

I painted Jesus rising from the dead. This was an important event in Holy Week because it shows that Jesus has lots of power and he came back to bring light to the world and tell the disciples the good news. ( Aleck )

I painted the tomb. This was an important event in Holy Week because he has risen. Mary and the other people were worried. ( Ruby )

STEM

The students enjoyed working with the Beebot robots. They solved problems and set codes to help direct their Beebot.

It was fun to make the Beebot move in a square shape. It was a challenge to make a ten step sequence.

( Aleck and Sam B )

The Beebots were fun to play with, I couldn’t believe that we would use them. ( Ryder )

 

 

Maths with Dash. Students were asked to create an equation (algorithm) for dash to follow and move along the ruler. They were adding groups of 10.

 

Reading

Each day students in Year 1 and Year 2 take part in a range of reading activities. They may be working in reading groups, sharing a Readers Theatre, participating in Guided Reading sessions, using a reading program online such as Sunshine Online or reading to themselves. Here are some photos of the students at work.

 

Lollybagging

All the Year 1 / 2 students enjoyed helping bagging the lollies for the Strawberry Fair. 9 lollies per bag. Only one snake per bag. The smell in the air was fantastic as the pile of lolly bags slowly grew. Thank you to Wendy James and her helping band of Oompa Loompas.

Boys and girls, what is your favourite type of lolly?

Worm Farm

Year 1 / 2 students visited the worm farms today. They added new worms and a worm block. We covered the worms with a new blanket.

We collected lots of the castings and added them to our vegetable garden. We are preparing the garden for planting next week.

    

Writing

Students have been learning about Recount Writing. They have been sharing their holiday adventures together and learning about their classmates. Parents can talk with their child about the structure of this writing genre.
