In CBL this term we have been learning about change. As part of our learning we have defined the word change, we have looked at what can change, the effect change can have on the environment and looked at how and why things change. We then looked at how we can create a positive change and our challenge is to make a positive change. As part of our solution to our challenge, we as a class, have decided to make t-shirt bags, bracelets, skipping ropes and a parachute. To help us, could you please provide a t-shirt (one that you don’t mind being cut up), no later than Friday this week.
Our School Captains have been busy these school holidays and created a special holiday episode of ACGN. Scripted and filmed entirely by the School Captains during their holidays – even the editing was taken over by them!
In this episode, our Captains share what they have been up to these holidays now restrictions are slowly being lifted and the weather is getting warmer.
What have you been up to these holidays? Share with us on our blog post or school Facebook page!
And just like that Term 3 is finished. We have had an awesome Term, learning from home and have tried our best with all of our learning. We learnt about so many different things this term.
In literacy this term we have been learning all about procedural texts and fables. We learnt the structure of procedural texts and also that great procedural texts contain verbs and adverbs. Then we had a go at writing our own texts about a lunch we made ourselves. We have just started learning about fables and how every fable has a moral.
We have covered so many things in maths this term. We have learnt about skip counting, measurement, money, patterns, halves and we’re even starting to learn about time. It has been great to try lots of different things to help our brains get smarter and smarter.
CBL has been lots of fun this term. We have been learning about all of the different types of power and how we use power every day. We even became engineers, designing and building our own designs that use power.
In the last few weeks we have started doing some wellbeing activities each Friday to practice self regulation and good wellbeing activities. We have reflected on our strengths and have been able to monitor how we are feeling throughout the day. We have also done some really fun activities over WebEx like today’s cooking activity.
In this episode we welcome a Rookie Reporter to ACGN, share about the Prep’s zoo excursion (yes – they went to the zoo!) and give you a sneak peek at some excitement coming up from our Specialist teachers. We hope this brings a smile to your face!
In 1D we have been working hard in reading and writing sessions to learn about procedures. Procedures are texts that teach the reader how to do something.
We read lots and lots of procedures, and we learned procedures have a title, goal, ingredients, equipment and steps. We also learned each step starts with a bossy verb and sometimes adverbs too. For example, a step could be: Cut the cucumber, and ‘cut’ is a bossy verb. It could even be Carefully cut the cucumber, and ‘carefully’ is an adverb.
Last week, we had a go writing procedures about how to make a lunch that we chose. It took the whole week! Little by little, our procedures came together, on Friday we published, and here they are! Each one is different from the others, because each student chose their own lunch to write about. I hope you enjoy reading them and why don’t you try following a procedure for your next lunch?
Aren’t these procedures fantastic?
