Currently in 6 Blue we have been learning about different countries from around the world. We have been doing this so we can get a better understanding of different cultures as well as what their climate, landscapes and food is like. For my project I chose Germany because that was where my Pop was born. In addition we had a choice to pick any other country and I chose Germany because even though I knew a bit I really wanted to find out more.
Here is a few pictures of our draft and published copy of our writing.

This week we have been celebrating Literacy and Numeracy week. On Friday everyone was encouraged to dress up as their favourite book character or something to do with maths (number, equation, shape, etc) and we had a parade on the basketball court with the whole school. Some of the most popular costumes were superheroes, Harry Potter characters, Cat in the Hat and Where´s Wally. Here are a few pictures of the parade …..

The last Friday in July each year is known as Schools Tree Day. This is a day for schools to focus on their local environment and for children to learn about the values of looking after the plants and trees around them.
Our Friendship Group activities in Week 4, focussed on trees and what they do for us and for the animals in our local surrounds, and at assembly, Nick Wakeling joined us to present a box of native plants to our school.
Every year, Nick very generously donates a box of native plants to us, as part of Schools Tree Day. Many of the plants around our school were donated by Nick in previous years. Nick is very particular about selecting plants that are endemic to our area, meaning that they are not found in many other places in Australia.
Thank you Nick for your generosity and ongoing support of our school community.
Our Melbourne Zoo ‘They’re Calling You’ program is under way. We are collecting phones for recycling with money going to the Gorillas in the wild. There is a cylinder in the foyer where phones can be placed. Seven phones so far, it doesn’t matter if the phones are broken or working
If you would like to delete your own data check out the directions on the link otherwise the data will be deleted after the phone is picked up. Melbourne zoo treat data security very seriously and ensure all data on phones is deleted.
In 4 Yellow we have been learning to write onomatopoeia poems. These poems include words that sound like the sound they make. For example crash, boom, bang, crunch, kapow!
We used an image of fireworks to base our poems on. We also changed the font and colours on these words to make them look like they sound. We had lots of fun! Here are some examples….Fireworks Fireworks (1)Fireworks onamatoepia poem Poem Fireworks onamatopeia poem1
