Recently, we have started looking at information report writing. We’ve been learning about Australian Pioneers and next week we will begin creating dioramas and reports on some of the events that shaped Australia into the country we know today.
Before we start writing this report, we had a go at creating some brand new mythical creatures. Some of us combined some existing ones together, and others made something entirely new. We needed to organise our information under appropriate sub headings, and include facts about our creature.
We have also started a new class novel called “Blabbermouth”. It is the story of a mute girl named Rowena, who is starting at a new school. She has some struggles fitting in, so we tried to put ourselves in her shoes and describe a scene from her point of view.
During HASS this term, we have been learning about Australian history. We have been investigating some of the most significant events in our history and one of those was the arrival of the First Fleet. We learnt many facts about the First Fleet and we used this information to draw a ship!
We’ve also been reading about the impact the arrival of Europeans had on our indigenous population in our class novel Young Dark Emu. We now know that there were many unfortunate conflicts that occurred because of many of these significant events, but it is especially important that we continue to recognise Aboriginal people as the traditional owners of this land.
In Maths at the moment, we are learning all about angles.
One of our extension tasks included creating our own angles with tape. We categorised them, measured them with our protectors and then added the internal angles of shapes that we had formed. We used our whiteboard tables which we love for hands on tasks like this one.
During the season of Lent, we have been thinking about the great sacrifice that Jesus made for us. We have already written Lenten Promises and prayers, and displayed these across our classroom and in the front office.
We have now started to take a closer look at the Easter Story. We retold the story on our iPads, and will now use this as a plan to create a whole class Stop Motion video using lego! We are working in small groups to film individual parts of the story, and while this is happening, we have also been rehearsing for our upcoming STATIONS OF THE CROSS assembly. We’ve had to learn our lines and practise our scenes ready to begin filming next week.
Here are some sneak peak photos – and stay tuned for the finished products very soon!
