Sweet Treat Shop

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!!

Book of the Week

Deltora Quest: The Lake of Tears. Author: Emily Rodda Illustrator: Marc McBride (front cover) and Kate Rowe (things that are associated with the book E.g. Like signs, maps And letters)

Hi, I’m David and I’m going to tell you my book of the week.

The book that I have chosen is, “Deltora Quest: The Lake of Tears“. This book is about “Lief” who is a 16-year-old boy. His home town is a place called Del. He makes a pledge to his father Endon to find ᐧthe lost 7 gems for the belt of Deltora. Lief has already found the first with the help of his allies Barda and Jasmine. But they have to find 6 more gems. Lief, Barda and Jasmine think that the second gem is at The Lake Of Tears, but this is in a land that an evil witch called Theagan rules with her children Jin and Jod. Theagan and her monsters guard the land so Lief, Barda and Jasmine have to be very careful and watch out for danger so they do not fail the mission.

I would recommend this book to girls and boys because this book has lots of wacky and weird characters.

Book Bags

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. 

Doncare Pick Up

Doncare came to pick up all items today.
In 1/2 we got to ask lots of questions about the families who rely on Doncare. 
We even got to help them load up the items into their cars.


Thanks to everyone who donated something, and well done to all the classes!
A special congratulations to 3/4CA and 3/4BM who both had a total of 316 each. The BBQ will be in the last week of term.
The school TOTAL was 2013 items!

  

Rainbows

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.

Blog Buddies

Hi, my name is Nicholas and for this week I am in charge of choosing the “Blog Post of the Week”. I have chosen a post from Holy Trinity’s school blog. I liked their art post on Book Week. Make sure you have a look and post a comment on their blog.

Blog Buddies

A Year 2/3 class from Glenbrook Elementary School from Wisconsin (USA) has asked whether we can help with their inquiry unit they are doing on ‘communities’. They have shared a slide with us (and around 100 other schools) and have asked whether we can show them what our community looks like.

Alexis, Ariella and Hannah (3/4CA) will contribute a slide for our school very soon.

Do you have any suggestions on what the girls could include on the slide?

3/4 Abstract Painting

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?
