1/2b’s narratives

This week 1/2B is making narratives in writing! On the 11th of December we published our narratives and we have been enjoying making them. Everyone has made a narrative and we are going to read each others narratives. A few people are publishing on the computer and others are publishing on paper. Why don’t you try and make a narrative.-Olivia

Chalk drawings

This term we are learning about visual arts in Inquiry.  We are focusing on colour, line, texture and patterns.  To help us learn about the different types of lines we took our learning outside and had a go at drawing aboriginal ispired chalk art.  We may have got a little dirty but we had a blast making art and looking at each other’s work.  What do you think of our art? Have you done any aboriginal inspired art before?

First week back

Even a hurt arm doesn’t keep a smile of Samuel’s face.

We have had a busy first week back at school. Students not only started the term with the usual reading, writing, maths and inquiry; theywere treated to 2 different guest performances/speakers.  The first was to celebrate NAIDOC week which happened during the holidays.  Students got to listen to 2 performers play guitar and sing songs related to Aboriginal and Islander culture.  The second was a guest speaker who talked to the grade 1/2’s about safety and first aid.  The kids learnt about different dangers that can be found at home and how to prevent them as well as how to tell if someone is unresponsive.  All students got to take home an information sheet on what to do if there is an emergency.  I think the best part though was when the students got to pretend they were injured and bandaged up.

Even teachers learn

Hi 1/2 B!

Miss you all but I wanted to say Hi and let you know that even though I’m not at school, I am still learning and thinking of you.  I’m at a conference today for teachers all across Victoria and I am getting information, resources and skills to better help you continue to your education.  And not just the boring stuff like what is 2 + 2 but how you can find the answer to that question and how you can share that to other people.   I have lots of ideas that I can’t wait to get back and share with you.  I hope you will be as excited as I am.

See you tomorrow!

Healthy eating

As part of our 1/2 health unit we are learning about healthy eating.  We played a lunchbox game on the ‘Go For Your Life’ website.
