This morning the Year 2’s went to visit the fish farm and Mudla with Mr McCarthy.
Winnie: “In the Mudla Mr McCarthy set and investigation to find the right fish. And if we couldn’t find it we would pick a helper to help us then we would go to it. If it was right then McCarthy gave us the food to feed it.”

This term we have been travelling around Australia. We started in New South Wales and today we completed our journey in South Australia.
Over the course of the term we brainstormed what we know about each state. The students then asked questions as a class we could research.
We are now using these skills to do our own mini Inquiries, asking the questions and locating the answers. The students are then presenting their learning using 100 languages!
Some students have chosen to work in pairs others on their own.
I hope you’ve enjoyed our journey with us. We’ve had lots of fun!
This is what we know about South Australia.
Watch this space tomorrow for the student Inquiries.

Below are some of the creations the students designed to celebrate the Diwali festival 🙂
Hi I’m Shashant and I celebrate Diwali because one day one random mother saved a king so the king gave her one wish. So since the kings son was going to become the king she said that her wish will be to send the kings son and his wife to go to the jungle for 14 years and to make her son king.Thats when the kings son and his wife met all the powerful Gods so they lived with the Gods so tomorrow they will return from the jungle.
All the student used their 100 languages in their own inquiry about Diwali.
Firstly they posed their own question and researched the information presenting their learning.
Some students chose to create an i-movie, photo booth and others used activ- inspire.
Students are still completing their videos and we will blog them tomorrow.
In the meanwhile enjoy our learning!

Today Father Sam helped us celebrate Mass. It was lovely to have parents who were able to attend join us.
We reflected on the sacrifice Jesus made for us by dying on the cross on Good Friday.
How Jesus had victory over death by rising on Easter Sunday.
He did this because he loves us.
Please share the mass with us.
A truly beautiful Mass!
