This week our class had the opportunity to visit the Nature Play Area on Campus. The children had a wonderful time exploring and playing in this area together. After our time in the Nature Play Area we visited a R/1 Thiele Class and shared one of the Book Week books together as our Book Week activity.
This week our Reception students have been talking about the story of their birth and of how they were welcomed into their family and into the Church family.
Some of the Reception girls shared photos and even brought in special items that were from when they were born or from their Baptism to share with the class. It was very special to talk about when we were babies and how much our families love and care for us.
Although Grandparents day isn’t until Week 8, we have started practising our item for the show!
We are so excited and have already been up on the stage to work out our places and to learn some of the actions!
We can’t wait to show all our Grandparents and Special Friends once we have it all ready!
Save the date and get excited because it’s going to be a great performance!
On Thursday we participated in the long awaited Walkathon!! We completed a circuit which took us around the Campus with our Year 5 buddy class. We all did lots of laps and had lots of fun!
This week we have been celebrating NAIDOC WEEK in R/1.
We have carried out lots of different learning activities and learnt about some Dreaming stories, the didgeridoo, Australian animals, Aboriginal dot paintings and the Aboriginal flag.
It has been a fun and busy last week of the term!
Our class has been learning and talking a lot about our country, Australia! Take a look at the maps we drew of Australia! We have also been learning about Aboriginal culture and have been viewing some Dreaming stories. The children have been very interested in learning about how to make a didgeridoo and also making their own birds as a response to reading the Dreaming story of ‘How the birds got their colours’. We are excited about participating in more NAIDOC week activities next week!
Today, we were lucky enough to see a performance called ‘G’day Asia’. The presenter Hugh, has traveled to many Asian countries, and brought with him lots of puppets to share with us, and teach us some information about these countries. Here are some of the things we learnt:
Dragons are used to celebrate Chinese New Year.
Panda’s eat lots and lots of Bamboo. They also sleep a lot.
The country of China has the most people living in it in the whole world!
Monkeys and Orangutans live in trees in forests. Sometimes people chop down the trees and the monkeys have no where to live.
In Geography our class has been working in groups to make our own maps! We practised using our manners, sharing ideas and listening to each other when working together to design and build our maps.
Take a look at all the detail we added to our maps!
