This week in Religion we have been learning about what members of God’s family do when they go to Church. We talked about how people bless themselves with Holy Water and genuflect when entering the Church as a sign of respect. We also spoke about the differences between a crucifix and a cross. We learnt about the importance of what the cross and crucifix symbolise.
In Art we created our own crosses.
2 Gold used paint and tissue paper to make a collage.
2 Blue made their cross with sticks and wool.
We can’t wait to show you our finished crossed for Open Night.
This week we have been making the most of the cooler weather by completing some of our lessons outside.
During our Talk4Writing lessons we innovated our Story Map of ‘Hey Little Ant’ to be ‘Hey Little Flower’. The children innovated their own story map. Some children changed their story to be about… bees, spiders, butterflies, bunnies and grasshoppers. They have learnt their story map with actions. You might like to ask your child to perform their story to you at home.

On Friday 29th October, the Year Two’s went on an excursion to the Perth Zoo. We caught the bus in the morning from school and travelled to the Zoo. Once we arrived, we met the parent helpers inside and ate our crunch and sip. We broke off into our groups and some groups went exploring around the Zoo and the other groups went and did the guided activity called Gwabba Boodja. For this activity we met a Zoo Keeper at the Dingo exhibit and went and read a story where we learnt about the Noongar seasons and names for animals in the South West. Through story, costume and animal observations, we explored and celebrated the differences between animals, and how their bushland habitat provides for their survival.
