Hi I am Abhinav I celebrate Diwali on Tuesday and Diwali means praying and being nice to someone and being kind and your behaviour has be good.
Below are some of the creations the students designed to celebrate the Diwali festival 🙂
This morning the students were immersed in our morning play-based investigation time, demonstrating their ongoing learning powers of collaboration, curiosity, creativity, sense making, mindful agency and hope and optimism. Students challenged their higher order thinking by manipulating experiments, building structures, becoming owners of a cafe, creating through mine craft and strategizing through a range of activities that incorporated team work.
After recess our Australian inquiry continued after a little absence due to our assembly preparations. Today the students investigated the Northern Territory. Have a look at their prior knowledge and inquiry questions below 🙂
Students then went off exploring their learning, sharing ideas and making sense of prior knowledge and new knowledge found.
After investigating their inquiries, students partnered up with a peer in the classroom to challenge each others learning by creating mini games to see what they found out about the Northern Territory.
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!
Please remember to send a hat with your child everyday.
We have sunscreen if necessary
Lets keep our children sun safe!
Welcome back to another week of amazing learning in the 3MS & 2SB learning community.
This morning the children entered the classroom to engage in our weekly play-based investigation time where they showcased an abundance of energy, challenging their critical and creative thinking through exploring the use of their 100 languages. Witnessing the large amount of collaboration through our learning time was amazing and and early speck of gold to our week! 🙂
Take a look below 🙂
After recess the students had the chance to explore MUDLA and inquire about the different species that are homed within the building, replicating the sort of environment that is found along the Murray River. Students questioned why the blue tongue lizard was sleeping, why the hopping mice were hiding, the reason for the smell in the MUDLA area and why the water was running the way it was. Many students are eager to continue inquiring about the MUDLA and investigating the aquatic creatures that call it home. All photos taken by our resident classroom photography, Emily 🙂
Mr White on Friday at assembly gave the students a provocation, informing them of a new Library and multi classroom area that is currently being designed to be built here at Holy Family. He has set students a challenge to design what they think this new area should look like, knowing it is going to be built as a ‘sustainable building,’ meaning all its power will be coming from renewable sources.
Students are using their 100 languages to design their creations! Have a look at the collaboration and creativity of our future architects 🙂
What an amazing time spent with all Year 3 students Friday night at their first, Sleepover! The children we immersed in the activities on display from Tri-Skills, and enjoyed a lovely dinner, movie together before camping out in the school Hall for the evening! Everyone involved had so much fun! Can’t wait to do it all again next time!
Here are some snaps from the evening, head over to 3MP and 3JH’s blog for more amazing photos! 🙂
Today the students in 3MS and 2SB have spent time celebrating and exploring ‘All Souls Day’ which is celebrated each year on November the 2nd.
Students discussed what the word ‘Souls’ means to them:
‘Souls means our life’ – Alex R
‘In our bodies’ – Shashant
‘Your memories’ – Phillip
‘Someones spirit’ – Hong-Phuc
‘When someone died’ – Helen
Students then created their own prayers to the souls who have left us, as we pray to keep them safe 🙂
After students completed their ‘All Souls Day’ prayers, students used their growing inquiry skills to investigate their own Saints and lead how they wish to present their existing and new knowledge together 🙂 Students used their 100 languages and growth mindsets to challenge how they wanted to present their information. Some students decided to create flipcharts, most students decided to test their directing skills and create iMovies to present their findings 🙂
Have a look at the students amazing creations below 🙂

Today is Halloween and our learning community were immersed in finding out more about this event each year on the 31st of October.
Students in 3MS explored and investigation through a range of play-based provocations, some having a spooky feel to them. Our learning community show an enormous amount of energy, fun and zest as they used their growth mindsets to lead their own learning.
Students have been reflecting on their learning powers this week, and it was evident to see creativity, curiosity, collaboration, hope and optimism, sense making, belonging and mindful agency were being explored at different times through our play-based investigation time.
After recess, students were eager to continue their Halloween learning and extended what they had learnt through their investigations, into creating movies, stories, trailers and joke books based around the theme of Halloween.
A speck of gold from our learning today was being taught by the students how to create my very own movie trailer, showing me all the tricks to create the perfect on edge moment 🙂 It was an amazing experience!
