After much excitement, the Grade 1’s are proud to announce their premiere release of “Rock Around the Clock”!
Students created the rock n roll style dance during the exploration of “time” in workshops. A group decided to be really dedicated to learning the dance, even during lunchtimes and Friday Fun! Their reward for their engagement and positive learning attitudes was to create this film clip.
Well done, you should all be very proud of your learning!
Today we brainstormed ideas for our costumes for Thursday night. A challenge has definitely been set! Dress up as something mathematical… Here were some of our ideas from our brainstorm:
“I have a love heart dress, how many hearts are on it?” Tori
“You could wear spots, triangles or other shapes” Sarsha
“Numbers or symbols!” Aaliyah
“You could wear patterns” Liam
“A chess piece” Edward
“Robots because they go fast or slow which is maths” Risinu
“We could dress up as paper planes!”
Grade 1’s have a strong passion for playing chess. They display great mathematical and strategic thinking when they play! I’ve been playing against Sara in grade 3… have a look at our game at them moment – I think it’s close to coming to an end! To save myself the embarrassment I won’t say what colour I am 😉
All grade 1’s have access to chess.com – if you would like to play me, my username is KristenHornby. I think Mr Broadway and Mr Lowne play against some of you too! Do you enjoy playing chess online?
The grade 1’s have been working with the grade 4’s and Mr. Lyon to develop our outside space.
We brainstormed as a group then created drawings to represent what we would like to see, hear, smell and touch in our outside spaces.
What ideas could you share to create engaging outside spaces? Please comment!
The Grade 1’s were looking at the poem “A Child’s Plea…” (the author of the poem is unknown) during shared reading workshops. This poem has been in their reading logs since prep. We read the poem and discussed what learning is and what our learning looks like. They came up with so many “Wonderings” and “Discoveries” from reading the poem!
The biggest discovery was that they began to look at what they do during the day and began to identify what their learning.
“We share with each other! We are a community” – Brian
“It’s like the measuring that we are doing in the mathematics space” – Connor
“We played that memory game that is like a memory tray” – Jasmine
“Way and weigh are the same word but means different” – Tevi
