In Literacy, we used the features of an instructional text to write instructions for making sandwiches. In our cross curricular activity, we linked our English with Design Technology and used these sequences of instructions to make our own sandwiches.
For Remembrance Day, we made poppies to show our appreciation to the many soldiers who have fought in various wars of the past and those still fighting to protect our freedom.
This half term, we focused on Tennis Skills in our Physical Education lessons.
Here are some of our highlight moments!
In our English lesson, we looked at the features of poems with a focus on circus poems.
The children practised a range of circus poems and performed their favourite to an audience - our Melbourne classmates.
The children listened carefully to each group's performance and were encouraged to say two positive comments and one 'even better if' comment on each performance.
We have been enacting events from our current novel, 'Dumbo'. Here we see our class creating freeze frames to share how a character might be feeling . The students used facial expressions and body language as tools to share their fantastic ideas about how the main character could be feeling based on what was read and discussed.
