Today we had a footy parade in the hall. It was great fun wearing our colours and marching to our team song. Great job everybody!
Here is how you make one.
In our InquiRE unit we read the story ‘Letters to Pope Francis’ which is a collection of letters to the Pope from children all around the world. We the wrote our own letters to Pope Francis asking him questions we were wondering.
Hi, my name is Alyssa and this is my Scratch Program. I have called it Maze Runner. In this program, you have to make some wise choices in which way to turn. Or else you will be eaten by the dragon that is chasing you! I hope you like it.
Hi, my name is Nicole and for this week I am in charge of choosing “Blog Post of the Week.” I have decided to award it to St. Mary’s Primary School in Hampshire (in the UK).
They have posted about their science unit on plants. Make sure you have a look on their blog.
You can’t leave a comment on their blog, but make sure you have a look.
I am certain you have all heard of film trailers which persuade us to go and watch a movie. In 5 /6 we have created book trailers to promote books that we have read and enjoyed. We hope you are persuaded to read some of these books by watching our book trailers. We created the trailers as part of a home learning task. Watch these trailers and let us know if you are persuaded to read these books. Tell us which book you are persuaded to read.

In InquiRE we have been learning about ways we can walk in Jesus’ footsteps. We helped our community by doing Doncare and we would like to help the world. We want to help the children in Vanuatu.
We would like to raise money for these children and we will be running a sweet treat shop. A sweet treat shop is a shop where the preps will sell yummy sweets. Here are some photos of us making our poster for around the school.
Keep watching the blog for more posts with information about this sweet treat shop!!
This week, for our ICT lesson with Mr Cotela, we used the NEW chrome books for the first time. We learnt how to log on with our own username and password.
We learnt how to open up a new page in a Word document and save it to work on later!
Learning how to change the font characters, size of the writing and colour was amazing!!!!
1/2KC can’t wait to learn more next time!!!
Three year 4 girls have formed a little Book Club reading The Happiest Refugee by Anh Do. “The extraordinary true story of a boy’s journey from starvation at sea to becoming one of Australia’s best – loved comedians.” We talk about what is happening and how we are enjoying it. We laugh at the funny bits together!
Year 5/6 have been busily working on their latest homework assignment; creating a Book Bag. The children chose a favourite book to share with the class and completed a series of activities. Here are Portia and Sarina with their Book Bags. Both girls included a range of outstanding props to explain their text.
In 5/6 we have been learning about light, and all the ways light travels, bends and is reflected.
Today we learnt about white light. White light is made up of all the colours of the rainbow red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet. When white light hits a certain object the light is split up into all of its colours and is what we see as a rainbow.
We decided to try it our self’s. We used a mirror, white paper, and a jug filed with water.
Here are some of our rainbows.
The Year 1/2s have been busy programming using a visual programming tool called Scratch Jnr. Here is Lily from 1/2IC showing how she created a program where animals race across a field.
The 3/4 classes have been busy creating an abstract painting by mixing primary colours to secondary colours. In the first lesson yellow and red were mixed to make orange. In the next lesson blue and yellow were mixed to make green. Finally red and blue were mixed to make purple. We also learnt about making tints by adding white to the colours. Detail was added and the art work was framed on black paper.
What would you like to tell our community about your art 3/4 students?
This week we added some more videos to our FlipGrid account to share with our friends from Colegio Newlands in Argentina.

The Italian alphabet has only 21 letters and many of the letters make different sounds in Italian than they do in English. In 1/2 the students have been exploring these sounds and finding new words that begin with each letter.
Listen to Samuel, Isla and Alexander saying the Italian alphabet. Che bravi!

This week is BOOK WEEK!! It has been a week of getting our hands messy with all of our craft activities. We read a book each day and followed on with an activity; we have made snow, snowflakes, a nanny, a seagull and a bookmark. Even though we made mess, we know how to clean it up! Here are some photos of us during book week.
Well done everyone on another great book week parade this year.
All of your costumes were fantastic!
