Portfolio Night

What a WONDERFUL evening!  Grade 1 children did an AMAZING job setting up the unit for family and friends to visit.  Your teachers were so proud as we watched and listened to you share your learning and enthusiasm for our project.  Your singing touched everyone in the room.  Well done everyone.

Thank you!

Grade One would like to say a big thank you to Ceedyn’s mum for sharing her expertise. We enjoyed weaving with you and would love to to continue teaching us. We can’t wait to share our learning with others.

Alexander and some other children would like to create their own chess board using the weaving technique with you.image

Celebrating our learning

The Grade One students celebrated their learning this term by visiting the Prep Unit to share their work. The Grade Ones were very proud of their achievements and shared information posters, a dramatic play and a short film that they had created. The Grade Ones are looking forward to ‘taking action’ in regards to their projects in Term 4.

How do nature and human influence the survival of living things?

As part of our project we have been focusing on three endangered animals; the Tasmanian Devil, Orange bellied Parrot and Lead beater Possum. We have been learning about them in Learning Agreement time, project workshops and facilitated discussions. We are looking at the characteristic features of these animals, their habitat and the influence of nature and human on their survival.

Hello to all the children of the world

Below are the lyrics to our song for production. You can also visit the following website to practice, (please note, we do have a few word variations). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpTR1wF4M6k

 

Hello, Bonjour, Buenos dias,

G’day, Yassou, Konichiwa,

Zdravo, Salaam, Namaste

Hello to all the children of the world.

 

We live in different places from all around the world,

We speak in many different ways.

Though something’s might be different,

We’re children just the same,

And we all like to sing and play.

 

Hello, Bonjour, Buenos dias,

G’day, Yassou, Konichiwa,

Zdravo, Salaam, Namaste

Hello to all the children of the world.

 

There are children in the deserts and children in the towns,

And children who live down by the sea.

If we could meet each other to run and sing and play,

Then what good friends we all could be.

 

Hello, Bonjour, Buenos dias,

G’day, Yassou, Konichiwa,

Zdravo, Salaam, Namaste

Hello to all the children of the world.
