Moon Festival Celebration

On Friday 13th October we celebrated the Chinese Moon Festival with our buddy grade 3B. We wore red, yellow or traditional Chinese costumes. We had visitors from Latrobe University who played traditional musical instruments and retold stories of animals being invited to the moon to celebrate. The moon is believed to be its biggest and fullest during the Chinese mid autumn festival time.

Why is ICT important?

Why is ICT important?

Contemporary research has shown that ICT can lead to improved student learning and better teaching methods. A report made by the National Institute of Multimedia Education in Japan, acknowledged that an increase in student exposure to educational ICT through curriculum integration has a significant and positive impact on student achievement, especially in terms of “KnowledgeComprehension” · “Practical skill” and “Presentation skill” in subject areas such as mathematics, science, and social studies.

Harvesting our Garden

Yesterday 1L had a gardening lesson with Mrs McCrum in the community garden. Amelia, Diesel, Callum, Beau and Miss Luke weeded our two garden boxes. The rest of the class carefully planted seeds in our class’s hothouse. We harvested some zucchinis and carrots from our garden so that we could make room for some new seedlings. Miss Luke took the zucchinis home and made some soup for the class. She used healthy, garden fresh produce such as potatoes, zucchini, leeks and carrots. Everyone in 1L tried a little cup of soup. Not everyone liked it but most of us did. We love having our garden to watch things grow and to learn about the cycles of life.

Melbourne Aquarium

On the 19th of November it was excursion day. We travelled by bus into the city. We had a snack outside of the aquarium. Firstly we learnt a bit about these interesting sharks called elephant sharks. An elephant shark can feel for their food. Some jelly fish are as big as a football oval and some can be as small as your fingertip. Smooth stingrays are the biggest rays in the world. Crocodiles are very good at staying still under salt water. Salt water crocodiles are the largest in the world. Salt water crocodiles can grow to be a length of 6 metres or more. Salt water crocodiles can stay under water for up to 2 hours. A seahorse mother lays 1,800 eggs. A seahorse is a fish even though it doesn’t look like a fish. The king penguin is the second largest penguin.
These facts were collected by Brianna on the day. Thanks Brianna!

Children’s Week

It was a fascinating and exciting day on Wednesday the 22nd of October, because we went outside to do activities with our buddies.  These activities included blowing bubbles, tunnelball, an egg and spoon race, sack racing, throwing the thong, skipping and last but not least hulahoops. The whole point of  having this day is to celebrate Children’s Week.We were all so hot and tired when we got back that really all we did was have our snack and go ouside for recess.   By Holly 2L

Book Character Dress Up Day

What a fun day we’ve had today.  Miss Luke was ill but her cousin Ms Fizzle came to teach 2L.  Ms Fizzle is the well known character from “The Magic School Bus” series of books.  Poor Ms Fizzle though!  She was expecting a class of children to teach, but when they arrived, stars and planets!  There were ninjas, princesses, fairies, zombies, smurfs, Thing 1 and Thing 2, Harry Potter and Hermoine, Snow White, Spiderman, ladybugs, pirates, skeletons, footballers and soccer players, Where’s Wally and Alice in Wonderland.  We’ve had a very exciting day being characters from our favourite books and we love using our imaginations to listen to and create stories.


Experiment 2

The wizards of 2L today made potions!  We used cornflour and 1 tablespoon of water to make a potion.  We tried to stir this potion but it was so difficult.  We described it as being hard, like concrete, solid, like a rock and thick.  Mrs Gray added some extra water (1/2 a cup to be precise) and then the potion was liquidy, runny, gooey, milky, smooth, yucky, like melted ice cream, soft and cold.  Harrison and Cooper’s mixture had some red food colouring added.  It almost looked like fake blood!!  Hee Hee Ha Ha!!!
