The Year Ones and Twos invited some very special guests to school on Monday for a morning of sharing and celebration!
We began the morning with a ‘Show and Tell’. We loved hearing stories about some very special photos and items from the past!. We saw old telephones, cameras, dolls, teddy bears, typewriters, records and more!
Our special guests then stayed for morning tea and some ‘olden days’ games! We had lots of fun playing elastics, hopscotch, dominoes, cards, skittles and quoits! I think our guests enjoyed themselves too!
Next week we will be sharing information we have learnt through interviewing an ‘older person’. We can’t wait to discover more answers to our many questions about life in the past!
Year 2 had an exciting time during their excursion to Fremantle! We participated in a walking tour to learn more about Aboriginal culture and history, as well as visit some very interesting and historical landmarks.
Our tour guide, Greg, had many interesting facts and stories to share with us! We loved hearing about the Aboriginal people using the branches from tea trees to catch fish and wattle seeds to make bread!
We were able to explore the Round House, which is the oldest public building in the whole of Western Australia. It was built in 1831 and was used as a prison.
We also visited the Whaling Tunnel. Did you know that whale oil was used to light lamps in the past?
Things were very different before electricity!
We’re now looking forward to learning more about Aboriginal culture and listening to more Dreamtime stories back at school!
The Year Two Gold class has been busy working in teams to bring our stories of ‘Mr Owl the Hero!’ to life!
With the use of the PuppetPals app on the iPads, we have been able to create our own characters and backdrops, as well as take turns practising our storytelling skills.
We can’t wait to share our narratives with our families at the 3 Way Interviews in Week 6!
Look forward to seeing you then!
We have begun learning about the structure and features of narratives. We are currently working together to create our own story about the adventures of ‘Theodore the Thinking Dragon’ and ‘Mr Owl’! It has been so much fun planning and sharing ideas and we can’t wait to bring our story to life! Stay tuned!
In the next few weeks staff will be inserviced regarding placing posts on the school website.
We will let you know when these are up and running so stay tuned!
