Today representatives of our committees shared with our whole Grade 1 community our different projects.
“We’ve been talking about walking to school and planning a walk to school day” Tori.
“And being safe. We’ve been talking about signs that we see” Hussnain.
“We need air and energy and we have to exercise our bodies” Risinu.
“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.
“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!
Well done to our expert dancers last night at our open night. Sarsha was very brave in teaching parents, teachers and other students the dance moves independently. Milan and Nyamal supported Sarsha by showing everyone the moves and helping them. They all displayed fantastic confidence and coordination! We hope everyone had great fun doing the dancing. Our grade 1 dance instructors would love to continue to teach the dance if anyone is interested! 🙂
Here’s a challenge for you… what mathematical thinking is involved in dancing?
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
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!
