1E’s Procedural Texts

Hi Everyone,

Thank-you for coming back to our blog. 🙂

Over the past few weeks 1E and the other year 1 classes have been learning about procedural texts. We have looked into the different features of a procedural text such as: a title, goal, equipment/ what you need/ materials and the steps/instructions. We have also learnt about verbs and adverbs and how they are used very differently in procedural texts compared to other texts.

Last week was our chance to get creative and write our own procedural texts on a lunch that we like to make. We started off on Monday taking pictures of ourselves completing each step while we were making our lunches. Tuesday, we started writing the title, goal and list of ingredients and equipment. On Thursday we wrote the steps that we took to make our lunch and used the pictures from Monday to prompt our thinking. On Friday we then published our writing on Picollage.

Here are some of our procedural texts that we created. 🙂


Thank-you for reading our post.

1B’s Yummy Procedures!

Hello everyone 🙂

For the past few weeks 1B has been learning and exploring procedural texts. We have investigated the different features of a procedure such as, a title, goal, list of materials and numbered steps. We have learnt about bossy verbs and adverbs and how they instruct the reader how to do something. In Week 7 we have been super busy constructing our very own procedures on delicious lunches that we have made at home.

On Monday we started by taking pictures of ourselves completing each step while we made our lunches. On Tuesday we started to write the title, goal and list of materials we needed. On Thursday we wrote the steps that we took to make our lunch, making sure we included bossy verbs and adverbs. Finally, on Friday we published our writing using Picollage or Book Creator.

We hope you enjoy reading and maybe even making our procedures!


We hope everyone is keeping and staying at home. We hope you enjoyed reading our procedures and we can’t wait to share with you what we learn next!

Well wishes,

1B 🙂

1H and Remote Learning!

Hi everyone!

We are back doing remote learning in Term 3!  We are super excited to share with you some of the learning that has been happening during our first few weeks of school.

For literacy,  we have been investigating Procedural Texts and how to ask Questions in order to find out more information!

  • Procedural Texts: We have been learning about the different features of a procedural text and why we would need to use one! For one of our lessons, we were able to show our understanding by taking photos of ourselves following the procedural text called ‘How to wash your hands’.


  • Questioning: We  have been learning about the different ways we could ask questions when we need to find out more information.


For maths, we have been focusing on Addition and Subtraction and Skip Counting!

  • Addition and Subtraction: We have been learning about the many strategies we could use, to find out the answer to an addition or subtraction problem.


  • Skip Counting: We have been learning to count large amounts by choosing a skip counting method! Skip counting allows us to count things more quickly and accurately.


For CBL we have been introduced to Power and all the various meanings of Power! Some of us have even tried designing and creating objects that involve Power!



We are so glad we get to share our learning with you all! Feel free to ask us any questions about any of our learning! OR feel free to answer some of ours 🙂

Stay safe everyone!

From Miss Lo Piccolo and all of 1H!



Saying Hello :)

Hello Everyone,

For the past few weeks the grade 1’s have been learning about the reading strategy questioning during Reading and Writing. We have been focusing on question starter words such as, who, when, what, where, why, is and how. Due to remote learning we have really missed seeing our friends. So yesterday we put our new knowledge of asking questions to gain new information and have written letters to our friends.

Here are some of our pieces of writing:


We hope you enjoy our writing and we can’t wait to share what awesome learning we do next!

We hope everyone is keeping well and safe.

Form Miss Spencer and 1B 🙂


1A – Term 3 online learning!

1A has been doing such a great job with their online learning so far in Term 3!

This Term in reading and writing we have been looking at ‘Questions’ -how to ask questions as well as different question starter words.

We realised that because of online learning we don’t get to see our friends as much as we use to, but thats okay because we can still say hello to them online! 1A have used our knowledge of questioning to ask someone in our school community a question to find out some more information.

Here are some of the great questions 1A have come up with so far:

We can’t wait to show you what great learning we do next!

Until then, stay safe everyone =)



1G’s Curious Questions

For the past few weeks 1G has been learning all about how to ask questions, both about their books and to other people. We have been focusing on using questions starters such as who, what, when, where, why, is and how. This week we wanted to write a letter to someone in our school community and ask them questions about their remote learning experiences.


We hope that everyone is staying safe at home and that you enjoyed our writing today.

Don’t forget to leave us a comment if you have any questions for us.

From 1G!

1C’s Remote Learning

The last few weeks have been really busy with learning for us, and because of that, we wanted to share some of the amazing work 1C has gotten up to!


Procedural Texts:

We have been continuing to learn about how to use procedural texts, as well as creating pictures steps of how to follow the steps for texts like ‘how to wash your hands’


We’ve been doing a lot of learning in our reading and writing about how and why we ask questions.

Today in our learning, we thought we would use what we have learnt about questions to help us check in with the people we miss from school, so here are some questions we would love to share with you:


Our learning about power has been going really well in CBL. We’ve investigated different kinds of power through lots of experiments and now we’re starting the follow the design process to look at how we can use and create something powerful!

To show you how we have been scientists and designers we wanted to share some of the awesome work that has been happening:

Srihitha’s paper windmill, showing how the wind is power:

Arya’s experiment showing chemical reactions:

Spencer’s plan showing his design process:

Spencer’s followed the design process to find something that could use wind!


We hope you enjoyed seeing all the learning that we’ve been up to and look forward to showing you more of it soon!



1F and Questioning

Hi Everyone,

The grade 1’s have been learning about questioning in both their reading and writing over the last few weeks. They have learnt to use question starters like; who, what, when, where, why and how.

As we have been at home and have been missing our friends, we thought we would use our new knowledge of questioning to write our friends a letter.

We hope you enjoy our writing 🙂
