Meeting Dooby in Robot Land

This morning something very special happened…Miss Nicolaou and the grade one’s received a letter all the way from Dooby the Robot. Dooby invited us to Robot Land to help him out with his dance video. Dooby wore black sunglasses and communicated to us through his robot actions.
Our mission was to work as a team and create our very own robot medallions to wear in the dance video. This was very exciting! We used black paper and shiny foil…

Eco Cubby Project

Over the past few weeks, students have been designing and creating
their ‘Dream Eco Cubby’. As part of the Eco Cubby Team, Sadul and Fiona D have
taken our ideas and presented them to the Eco Cubby Committee. Together they
will work with the Architect and Mr Lyon to design and build our very own
Wooranna Park Eco Cubby.

During Learning Agreement, Liam has engaged with this task having
planned his ‘Tree House Cubby’. “It
has stairs and you have to climb them to go up. I think we should make it from
wood so it fits in the tree. Birds can live around it.”

Liam then worked to build a model of his Cubby choosing to use
paddle pop sticks and PVA. To join the faces of his cube based structure he
then used the glue gun for extra support.

Liam was really proud of his end result. “I learnt to keep doing it, even when it got sticky!”

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?

The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle

This week, Hot Potatoes enjoyed The Grouchy Ladybug By Eric Carle.

“First we read The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle. Miss Cervenjak read it and we listened to it online too”. Miniya

 

 

 

 

“We made our own book, just like Eric Carle”. Ali

 

“We used clocks to help us look at the time.” AJ

 

“We painted our pictures [illustrations].” Risinu

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“If I was a little Ladybug is our new song. I like to sing it because I like ladybugs now.” Nathan

 

We went on our ladybug hunt. It was fun looking for aphids that the ladybugs eat. We didn’t find any ‘real’ ladybugs today but we did find some other ones!” Joyice & Nyachuot.

A Child’s Plea…

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

Visit from ‘Manni the Mantis’

After lunch a couple of Grade 1 students brought in a visitor to share with their class.

Liam told us it was called a Praying Mantis. After we had a look at ‘Manny’, Liam and Miss Cervenjak gently placed Manni back in his habitat.

After this experience, Victor and Fiona T worked with Mrs Kilby to research a bit more on Praying Mantis’.

Thanks for dropping in Manni!

Mother’s Day

Although it is Mother’s Day, we talked about how it is a great opportunity to appreciate any special females in our lives. We are hoping that all the special Mums, Grandmas, Aunts, sisters or special ladies in your lives had a wonderful day today!

Did you enjoy your “hand flowers”?

Grade 1 Assembly

On Wednesday 3rd May 2012, the grade 1’s had their assembly to share their learning with Wooranna Park Primary School. They used Skype to portray real time news broadcasting. In workshops, students have been looking at different forms of sharing news – news reporters, newspapers and the blog. It is an opportunity to develop their public speaking and presenting skills.

It was a fantastic assembly, all grade 1 students should feel very proud of their learning from term 1 and 2!
