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.
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!
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.
We started our morning off by exploring how much sleep, water intake, exercise and screen time is recommended for our age! Students provided a reflection for each, thinking about if they are getting enough or not enough.
In preparation for our film study this term, we started to explore some different camera angles. These included a close up, worms eye view, birds eye view, long shot, high angle and eye level shot. Each student had to choose an item or person to create different shots using different camera angle.
Students had the choice out of two writing prompts this morning.
In support of our ecology program, students may wear casual clothes on Friday 6 July by bringing empty cans/bottles and other 10c recyclables.
We currently have a competition for the most recyclables collected with great prizes to be won like an Aquaponics tank and Popcorn and a Movie for the classes that collect the most.
