Welcome to Term 4!


What a busy week in The Land Before Time this week! We have been reading, writing, counting, spelling and looking for bugs...just to name a few things! 

An exciting addition this week has been our School Blues SCARF Values Recognition. 



This week awards have been given to students who have demonstrated SUPPORT, in the classroom or on the playground. Keep an eye on the TV in the Canteen area to see who has been a supportive hero this week. 

How have you shown support this week at home? Have you supported by:

  • setting the table,
  • keeping your bedroom tidy,
  • feeding your pet or
  • helping a family member with a problem?
 I supported my Mum last week by helping her in her garden. I held the large Jasmine plant upright while she put soil around it. It felt amazing to help my mother.

Let us know the ways you have supported at home this week.

Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) - Team Work Skills

During SEL lessons (Social and Emotional Learning) year 1 have been learning about team work.

Here are some team work words we came up with:

co-operation,

caring,

kindness,

helpful, 

friendship,

respect,

problem solving,

working together and 

looking out for each other...

just to name a few.

In teams we created posters to show what team work looks like in the classroom and on the playground.

Some teams divided their sheet into sections to draw their idea. Other teams took turns to illustrate their joint idea one at a time. Another team had assigned roles as drawer, scribe and colouring expert.


 







How have you shown team work this week?

Grandparents Day!
It was wonderful to have so many visitors in our classrooms this morning. Grandparents came from all over to visit with their loved ones. Year 1 students enjoyed sharing a story, playing a Maths game and finding out a little about when they were younger. Some even toured the room, enjoying the many artworks on display. Thank you for visiting, we look forward to seeing you again.







What did you most enjoy about Grandparents Day?

Sounds on the Move!


In Science this term we are investigating sound and light through our unit of work 'Look and Listen'.

Today we explored how sound travels through different materials.

We noticed a difference between sound travelling through air and solids (the wire and the string).
Today we learnt …..that sound travels better through string than through air.
We know this because ….. we put the string over our ears and the sound of the tapping pencil was louder than when we held the string further away from our ears.
