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.

   

Italiano

During the last few weeks in Italian, the students have made their ‘Angelo di natale’ (Christmas Angel), have been listening to Italian Christmas carols and have learnt ‘La Befana Vien di Notte’.

I wish all of the students and their families a very merry Christmas and a happy and safe holiday season.

Buon natale, felice anno nuovo e buone vacanze a tutti!
