On Monday the 29th November the year Three classes attended The Fremantle Literacy Centre in Fremantle.
The Literature Centre is a unique place to nurture young people’s interest in reading and writing, using engaging techniques to explore and interpret literature. Uniquely located within the walls of the Old Fremantle Prison, it is the only centre of its kind in Australia.
During our visit the students had some wonderful learning opportunities such as hearing about the amazing story of Moondyne Joe, Western Australia’s real life outlaw hero. The students looked at the amazing artwork of Mark Greenwood, the author and illustrator of ‘The Legend of Moondyne Joe’. Next the students learned about the storybook titled, ‘Queen Celine’, a funny, eco-friendly, politically-relevant picture book by super-talent Matt Shanks.
After an engaging and fascinating time learning about so many interesting aspects of these amazing stories and the talents of these Australian authors the students travelled to Bibra Lake for some lunch and fun on the adventure playground. Thanks to the Pham Familiy’s Bibra Lake Lunch bar menu, we were spoilt with some delicious food. The students were lucky enough to have the whole playground to themselves.
We had a ball and learnt a lot! 🙂
Earlier this year in Term One Mrs Cogger placed on the Purposeful Practice Grid a link to The ATOM photography competition with the theme of ‘turbulence’ for 2021. Several students entered and their photos are on display in Science.
Last week we were informed that Alicia and Emilia have been recognised as ‘finalists’ for their entries. We are very excited for the girls and congratulate them on their creativity on such a difficult theme.
You can view their entries using this link.
