What a wonderful diverse community at Holy Family.
We experienced this at our Assembly this morning.
We had a taste of Spanish, Indian, African and Vietnamese Dancing.
In our classes we had many students wearing their National Costume proudly!
We then celebrated with a Yummy multi Cultural Lunch. Thank you to parents for so kindly preparing this.

This morning we started the week with Come Read with me. We then went out to Log Park and used our imagination. We used our creativity to become builders and constructed amazing structures through sharing and collaboration.
We have also been learning how we can ask open ended questions to help with our own Inquiry.
This afternoon we went to the Fish Farm for some inspiration to compose our Inquiry Question.
Whilst we were there we noticed some changes. The biggest being Max the turtles home had plants. Max wasn’t too concerned he was having an afternoon sleep.
Some of the children took some photos.
We would like to introduce you to our new friends in our class aquarium. Our classes our thinking of some names. Stay tuned for that!
Lara loves designing clothes for Barbie. In fact she was one of three winners who won a Creativity Contest for her designs.
When beginning to design clothes Lara said “How can I make these. Oh I know I can try paper but that did not work so I used socks.”

Today we discussed different ways we could research for our Inquiry.
Using the internet- using the search engines
– ask Mr McCarthy
– non fiction books
We then discussed the features of a non fiction text including : contents page, glossary and index pages.
We worked in pairs to locate interesting words we could use in our research.
Farah & Charlotte: “We learn’t about different fish that live in the ocean.”
Seanna & Sienna: “The adult frogs eat snails, spiders, insects, snakes and small birds.”
Nikita & Bianca: “We learn’t words about turtles such as tiger snakes, leech.”
Cam & Mason K: “A gold fish can live for 8 years or more and some can even live up to 40 years.”
James. M & Manseerat: “We found out that at the end of every star fish arm, they have an eye.”
Alex R & Ayden: “Sharks tend to attack bleeding prey because they have poor eye sight but a great sense of smell.’
We then made some individual mind maps.
Mason C“you have to find a learning book to make a mind map”
Seanna “A mind map is when your learning and then your ready to reflect then you make a mind map”
