Here is an overview of our learning for Term 2!
On Friday 10th February, students from years 5 and 6 took part in our ‘wellbeing day’. Students were grouped in their houses and rotated through four different activities for the day. Miss Hynes & Miss Thomas led a healthy eating session where students enjoyed delicious, fresh dips along with celery and carrot sticks. Mrs Ryan held a meditation session which incorporated reflective music and quiet activities and finally, Mr Naden and Jacob Aquino organised different fitness stations and team building activities which involved a lot of running, jumping, muscle building and communication. All activities were aimed at improving our physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing and of course, our teamwork skills and house spirit!
The day was a huge success and we look forward to more Wellbeing Days in the future!
We had such a fun day dressing up as some of our favourite book characters to celebrate Book Week.
It was great catching up with our buddies – it gave us a chance to check out each other’s creative costumes!
We listened to the story Piranhas Don’t Eat Bananas by Aaron Blabey.
We worked together to create our own piranha with art and craft bits and pieces. It was great to see everyone working together and sharing ideas to create some amazing and friendly looking piranhas!
We also had a go at writing a summary of the book – trying to write the main ideas of the story not everything that happened! We enjoyed the story very much and can understand why it was nominated for Book of the Year – Early Childhood.
“Brian was a healthy piranha that eats healthy fruits and veggies. He asked his friends if they will eat the fruits and veggies but the other piranhas prefer bottoms! I like this story because it’s funny and it’s a nice story.”
“Brian was a healthy piranha. Brain eats fruit and veggies. The other piranhas maybe too full of veggies and fruit. I like the book because it was funny.”
