In preparation for our Easter Assembly, and as a part of our current Religious Education unit, we have created stop motion animations of the Easter Story.
We worked in teams to recall the easter story. Then we used the application Stop Motion to record a scene in teams using lego figures and backdrops.
These short stop motions will be combined into one big class movie with voiceovers and will be on show as a part of our virtual open night in week nine. Here are some sneak peek photos of us working!
On Wednesday of last week the season of Lent began with Ash Wednesday. As a school we celebrated by coming together in our undercover area, praying and receiving ashes.
Later that day in our classrooms, we wrote Lenten Promises. We defined what a promise is, first of all. Then we thought and wrote about who we would like to PRAY for, what we would GIVE this Lent and what we would FAST from. These special Lenten Promises are displayed across our classroom and the front office. If you pop into the office this week, make sure to check them out! Some of us wrote on cross templates, and some of us wrote on leaves.

Over the last five weeks we have been working on a Maths project called Market Garden.
In this project our goal was to find the most cost-efficient essentials to help grow our fruit & vegetables. This project came with a ‘must have’ list which had all the necessary items for our garden.
Another aspect of creating our garden, was shopping for all the items we needed. These items all came from well-known websites such as Bunnings, Australia Gardening, Aussie Gardener and more. These prices we found on the websites needed to be rounded to the nearest whole dollar.
This real-life project included creating a logbook and designing our very own garden, it also included real life measurements and the total prices of all the wood needed to create our garden beds.
We really enjoyed creating our Market Gardens with our magnificent Mr. Millar!

As part of our digital technologies curriculum, we are learning to code! Students are learning basic coding skills using the code.org website, in preparation for later in the term when they will be asked to build their own game based on our class novel!
“Coding is a fun way to learn new skills. It might help us create a new game or app!” – Harry & Lachlan
“Coding skills can help us in the future. It helps express our imagination and creativity and who knows, we might end up working at Google!” – Stella & Teyla
