With the term well and truly underway, 1L students have already settled straight back into their daily routine- and what a busy start to the term we have had! We held our Cross Country Carnival where all students had a wonderful day. We have also travelled to the Art House in Wyong for our first excursion this year. The students were treated to a live performance of ’Magic Beach’ by Alison Lester. The actors were so funny and talented!
In English we are focusing on persuasive writing, including how to use devices such as high modality words and how they help us to be more convincing. In Mathematics we are continuing using strategies such as place value and friends of 10 to help us add and subtract.
In PDHPE Sharen Herbert is introducing us to some great cultural games from many language groups around Australia. We will also begin training for our Athletics Carnival later in the year.
Coming up later in the term will be our Public Speaking Competition. There is also an incursion planned to link with our Science unit ‘Material World’. Our Jollybops visit is sure to be exciting! The students have already had some fun mixing and changing materials. The mixing theme continued in Creative Arts where students mixed primary colours together to make secondary colours. The results can be seen in the photos below.
