The Stolen Generations

This term we are exploring the Stolen Generations.  This will be explored through watching the movie Rabbit Proof Fence.  To begin our topic today, we viewed some behind the news clips explaining what happening during the Stolen Generations  and on the apology given by Kevin Rudd.

 

 

 

 

Students teaching students

This morning we started our student led lessons and what better way to share the amazing knowledge we have in our classroom.

Lucas and Mathew started us off by teaching us how to use the program blender to animate!

Thien and Khao taught us how to create music using garage band.

It was great to see our students speaking so confidently infront of the class, sharing their knowledge whilst supporting and helping students along the way.  Well done Lucas, Mathew, Thien and Khoa.  Stay tuned each week for more!

 

 

Moral of the story

Our writers notebook mini lesson today was focused on exploring the moral of story in different picture books.  Students recorded what the teaching element/moral was and how the text engaged the reader.  Students will be creating their own picture book and may like to include their own moral in their story.

 

Paperboyo

This Term’s art is based on the works of ‘Paperboyo’ – Rich McCor.

Today we looked at many different photos that Paperboyo has made and began to try out our own.
