1/2KC ICT Lesson

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!!!

1/2 Level Cyber Safety Sessions

In the 1/2 Level, we have been learning about cyber safety.      

We learnt about keeping our personal information private. This means never let anyone know information that identifies them like: where they live, school name, address, full name, sports clubs, parents’ and siblings’ full names.

We also spoke about being safe when talking to online friends to keep and protect our personal information and never meet an online friend without taking a parent or carer along.

We also looked at a game called ‘Pick Your Friends’ on the computer which gives students a chance to identify whether the characters in the game are telling the truth or a lie about themselves, in knowing how to identify a true friend and being safe!

You can have a go at the game, by logging on to the following link!   https://www.esafety.gov.au/access/games_index.html 

Science Experiment in 1/2J

As part of our science unit we have been conducting science experiments in 1/2J. This week we have been exploring floating and sinking. We were in groups and we had a container filled with water. We had to predict what items would float and sink. We used a paperclip, a volleyball, a ping pong ball and a bottle top. Then once we finished our prediction and we could start testing and observing what happened. 

Here are some photos of us doing our experiment.

Football Player Visit

On the first day back of Term 3 the 1/2 level was lucky enough to have a special guest. Shaun Atley (Lily’s cousin from 1/2J) is a North Melbourne football player who came into our school to talk to us about his sport.  We asked a bucket full of questions about being a football player and Shaun was fantastic at answering them. We found out that any Collingwood player is his enemy and his favourite football team was St Kilda when he was little.

Breathing Buddies

The 1/2 year level have gotten their creative minds working and have made their own breathing buddies for mindfulness time.  1/2J use our buddies to help us with our deep breathing and improve our concentration level. We love our breathing buddies!!

1/2J 3D Shape Creations

We have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes and today we worked hard on creating 3D shapes using icy pole sticks. This task was not easy especially because the sticks kept falling down. However with a lot of team work and problem solving each group created a shape. 

Here are some photos of our shapes!

1/2J’s Joy Wall

In 1/2J we have been exploring our emotions and how our emotions impact on our choices. We began by watching the movie ‘Inside Out’ and have been focusing on the main characters. The main characters are joy, sadness, fear, disgust and anger. We have been focusing on each emotion in our InquiRE times. We have created a joy wall where we have made the character joy out of paper plates and wrote two sentences about times we have felt joy and seen joy. Here are some of our sentences.
