Autumn art with Miss Gray

On Friday we were very lucky to have Miss Gray teach us an art lesson using leaves.  Thank you to TJ and Talyn who collected some leaves outside earlier in the week before the rain came.  We learned about different elements of art including warm and cool colours, contour lines and enlargement.  We used oil pastels and water colours to make our masterpieces! An engaging and fun lesson, check out out success below.

Dining hall tomorrow (Wednesday)

Dear families,

A reminder that our dining hall lunch will be supplied by our canteen tomorrow, Wednesday 20th May.  Students do not need to bring lunch from home tomorrow but we ask that each child brings their own reusable plate and fork.  We look forward to sharing lunch with our classes tomorrow.

Kind regards,

Ms Pinneri and Mrs Stam

Welcome Chloe Gray

Dear families,

This week we welcome Miss Chloe Gray to our classes.  Chloe is a 3rd year student studying a Bachelor of Education at UniSA and also an old scholar of Holy Family.  She will be in our class as a part of her placement for the next 5 weeks.  We look forward to working with Chloe and learning a lot from her this term.

Kind regards,

Week 2 reflection

Last week we showed bravery and changed where we usually sit in the class room.  We are opening our friendship circles so that we can get to know new people this term.

In Maths we discovered analogue and digital clocks, with particular attention to o’clock, quarter past, half past and quarter to the hour.

During our library time we read the book ‘I want to be a Rock Star’.  This exposed us to styles of music of the past.  This has influenced us to explore and listen to these different styles and we are in the process of creating a 1950s-1990s music playlist.

Our PMD (play make do) session was also a success!  Students took part in activities of their choice and interacted with children who they don’t usually play with.

Week 1 highlights

We welcomed our students back last week after a refreshing break.  We had a busy week full of learning and fun!

Literacy – past, present and future tense / what is an exposition?

Maths – time

Religion – parables of Jesus

Health – learning about our own character strengths / what does it mean to keep safe?

HASS – why do we celebrate Anzac Day?

We also baked some Anzac biscuits and spent some time being active when the sun came out briefly! Congratulations to our 3 stars of the week – Calvin, Abby and Kayden for showing our class values of being brave, being kind and being awesome!

 

 

 

Video and ideas for being at home

This morning we watched a video to help children understand the importance of social distancing.  As a group we discussed ways we can have fun while staying at home during the holidays and on weekends.

We wish you and your families a safe and healthy holiday break and we look forward to speaking to you next week during our learning conversations.

Kind regards,

Ms Pinneri and Mrs Stam

Text to talk

Hello everyone,

 

I have created a few videos to help you have text read out to you, which I have referred to as ‘text to talk’.  This can be done when there is a lot of writing to read and you would like to have someone read it to you.  Please watch the following video links.  The first one shows you how to set up ‘text to talk’ and the second one is an example of it.

Happy reading (and listening) 🙂

Ms Pinneri
