Year One Writing

Year one were delivered a package earlier this week. It was a stimulus that created a purpose for writing. The students have been learning to write an orientation at the beginning of their text. The orientation sets the scene, mood and characters. We can't wait to open the package in Week 10! Some of their orientations are highlighted below:

One cold morning Mrs Coster raced inside the Year One classroom. She was carrying a box. The box fell off the table. Crash! But it was as light as a feather.

By Winnie

On Tuesday morning Mrs Coster excitedly came bolting in through the classroom door. She screamed, “You’ve got a package!” Year One shouted, “YES!” But Mrs Coster said, “ You can’t open it yet, not until Week 10”. “OHHHHH,” said Year One.

KINDERGARTEN SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY

The students in Kindergarten have been learning about materials and their properties. They have designed and made a habitat for an animal that lost its home in the flood and justified their reasoning for the materials used. Check out their designs!

YEAR ONE MATHEMATICS

In Year One the ‘Maths Legends’ students engaged in an open-ended rich mathematical task. 

The students used concrete materials to support their learning and to encourage visualising quantities and amounts. The students quickly identified patterns that supported their understanding.

YEAR ONE SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY

In Year One the students have been investigating forces and identifying push and pull movements. Today they planned, designed and made a playground that catered for these forces using a range of materials. Check out their playground designs!

Year One Science

YEAR FOUR MATHEMATICS

In Year Four the students were engaged in a rich multiplication and division task.

Some students visualised the quantity by drawing it, whilst others imagined it. The students drew on their knowledge of repeated addition, skip counting & factors. Whilst others used systematic strategies to conceptually identify patterns, in order to determine how 120 chocolates could be packed.

GARDENING CLUB

I stumbled upon the gardening club yesterday and I was inspired by their passion. Miss Beecher and her team of students across K-6 were actively discussing the planting of garlic and where and why. The students were so engaged, giving up their lunchtime to take on this sustainable practice. I cant wait to try it!

Assistant Principal Mission News...

Last Sunday the 12th of June was the feast of the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity. Solemnity refers to this being a feast of the highest order and the Holy Trinity is deserving of this honour. This special feast was the topic of our Year 6 Prayer Assembly today.

Having a deep understanding of the Holy Trinity can be challenging for adults to understand and even the Catholic Church was divided up until the Council of Nicaea on the meaning of who the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit truly were. The textbook answer would be the unity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as three persons in one Godhead but there is a far simpler way to explain this complex concept to children.

There are several simple analogies of the Trinity for children to understand. The first is water. Water is H2O but it can be in three different states, ice, steam or liquid. The second analogy is that of an egg. A whole egg can be divided into three parts, the shell, the egg white and the yolk. For the final example, it is said that Saint Patrick used the three-leafed clover to explain the trinity. One clover represents God with three separate leaves to represent the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
