News from the classroom – Year 4 Room 7

In recent weeks, the year 4’s in room 7 have been concentrating on Narrative writing.

Over a series of lessons, they have been sensory detectives; working on narrative settings and characterisation. In the narrative character profile lesson, they needed to create a description of a character from a story book or novel, that they could give to the police to create a ‘WANTED’ poster. This involved using their best descriptive language, ensuring lots of adjectives and adverbs were used.

As this topic was covered over the past couple of weeks, some students needed to complete this task at home using the paper copy in the take home pack or straight onto the OneNote app. They all did a super job. Here are some examples.

News from the classroom – Mosaics project

As you are aware the Wellness Day planned for the end of term has been postponed.  As a part of the original planning the Social Emotional Learning (SEL) committee decided it would be great to create a whole school art piece in the form of a mosaic tree.  Last week, the students from year 1 to 3 participated in making their own mosaic piece to form part of the final creation.  With the support of Workshed Mosaics the students were really engaged in creating and learning some new skills. The tree will include our six values and will be installed on the red brick wall of the old canteen to be admired for years to come.  We would like to thank our school P&C in supporting the funding of this project.

ART this week.

This week in Art we have enjoyed a change of pace by taking our Art classes outside into the outdoor environment.  The students  gathered all sorts of natural items to make mandalas which involved making beautiful shapes and colours whilst in the fresh air.  The students created their designs whilst listening to the sounds of nature and some relaxing music.  It was great to regroup and offer students a calming experience as a means of creativity and expression.

News from the classroom – The French Room

Bienvenue to all our new students who are learning French at our school this year.

Featured above is Sienna F who dresses “à une française” de temps en temps (from time to time) for lessons, she just loves learning the language!

Our debutantes from Year 3 are all learning quickly and they can already sing three songs. I thank Addison, Scarlett, Holly and Olivia who have all made special posters to decorate the French Room.

As Harmony week fast approaches and we celebrate WA’s Diversity of cultures, I want to recognise the many languages that are spoken in our students’ homes.

To name just a few languages we have German, Russian, Polish, Portuguese, French, Italian and Chinese that are all spoken at home from the students who are currently learning French.

We will make posters of different language salutations in the Language Room during Harmony week!

News from the classroom – Room 6 Assembly

Year 4, Room 6 had the first assembly of the year, which was based around the value of RESPECT!

We acted out various plays showing how to respect:

  • Teachers
  • Family
  • School toilets
  • School equipment
  • Friends
  • iPads

We also shared a music video we created using green screen, which was lots of fun to create. We had such a great time rehearsing and performing for our assembly! Check out our acrostic poems we wrote about respect on the bulletin board at the front office.
