This morning, the Grade 1’s and 2’s were visited by the amazing team at History box. They talked to us about what things were like in the past. From the 19th century to the 21st century, we looked at artefacts they used in schools and houses, as well as took part in activities such as different games played back then and writing with a pen and nib.
This year in Year 2, we have been lucky enough to take part in a Pen Pal program with two Year 2 classes from a school in Queensland. The students received the letters today and are very excited about writing and sending letters back and forth throughout the year!
This past couple of weeks in 3/4 , we have been exploring poetry. We have been learning about different types of poems and have been practicing creating our own. Here are some poems that some of the students from 3/4R have written.
It’s home time for the Year 4’s! We had so much fun at camp and are looking forward to seeing all our loved ones when we get home.
The grade 4’s are up bright and early this morning. We all had a great sleep and can’t wait for today’s activities!
This week we have been celebrating Literacy and Numeracy week, and have been exploring different books and doing many fun activities. One of the activities that 3/4 R were lucky to do was buddy reading with 1/2 M! The students from 1/2 M came to visit us on Wednesday morning and did some fantastic reading with us. We can’t wait to do it again!
On Monday the 13th of August, the Grade 3/4’s were lucky enough to have a Scientist from Melbourne University come and do some amazing science experiments with us.
Ms Pike spoke with us about the forces of gravity and then demonstrated those forces using an egg, toilet roll, carton and a cup of water! (All things you could find at home!).
She then told us about an experiment called “elephant’s toothpaste” where some students got to volunteer to help her mix yeast and water, as well as food colouring, dishwashing liquid and hydrogen peroxide into a bottle. The result was fantastic. Here it is in action!
Wow what a musical! On Wednesday the 25th of July the Year 4 students were lucky enough to travel to the Whitehorse Arts Centre to see the Emmaus production of ‘Suessical’ the musical, and what a fantastic day it was. It was fun, engaging and had lots of energy.
Here are some quotes from the students…
“ The dances were very well done- The wickersham brothers in particular were fantastic. Lucas Faundez was fantastic”
“Cat in the hat was a fantastic character to watch, very engaging and funny. The fortnight/flossing dance was my highlight!”
“The energy from the chorus made the show! Very powerful voices from the principal actors”
“The costumes were excellent”
Although the students missed their lunch break, all agreed it was worth it to see the amazing and talented performers!
