“We’ve been talking about what the 2013 preps need to know to walk to school safely” Alison.
“We wrote all our ideas on this piece of paper” Aaliyah.

Committee 3

“We’re making an adventure story!” Brian.
“It means that we write a book that the reader chooses what they do” Nathan.
“We made a play about how to walk to school and played a game. It’s an adventure story about road safety” Tevi.
“We had traffic lights and the audience needed to give the choices. If we didn’t make a strong choice to go, we crashed” AJ.
“Red is for stop, green is for go and orange is for slow down” Milan.

We can’t wait to see the learning from all committees and how they can help the community be safe when coming to school!

Birds at our school

In the fine art space Hussnain, Muhammad, Brian, Tarik, Ahsan and Abass spent a LA session looking at some birds that visit the school and then making a collage of colored paper to look like their feathers. We looked at the iPad and a bird book to see that we got the colors right so that others could learn and recognize these birds.

Ahsan worked on the Noisy Miner, Abass and Hussnain did a Rainbow Lorikeet, Muhammad chose the Crested Pigeon and Tarik and Brian selected the Galah.

Here is Hussnain’s work and reflectionhttp://www.showme.com/sh/?h=3bsiSOW

Does the weight effect how far our models go?

Continued from our “Mrs Armitage on Wheels” workshops…..

Today we discussed the question “What would make a difference to how far our model travelled?”. We came up with lots of ideas – one being whether the weight would make a difference.

We weighed our models on scales. We used tiles to measure how heavy they were. Guess what? The model that went the furthest was also the heaviest!

Learning Agreement Today!

Such fun with our learning during Learning Agreement today!

Miniya, Brian and Nyamal challenged themselves with puzzles. They displayed persistence when their challenge got really tough! What is the puzzle of I wonder?

At the communication space Tarik was using the iPad to create words. I wonder what the longest word is that they can create?

Ian, Liam and Nathan were challenging themselves by measuring between A and B. That’s a lot of unifix – I wonder how they will count them?!

Abass and Muhamad were listening to stories in the Campfire Space. I wonder which story was their favourite?

Elijah, Connor and Hussnain were creating machines in the Construction Space. I wonder which model is the fastest?

What this bike needs is….

After reading “Mrs Armitage on Wheels” the grade 1’s designed their own bikes, thinking of the repetitive statement from the story “what this bike needs is…”.

What creative thinking came from their designs!
