Students researched one part of speech and then they shared their learning with the others. Some good examples of listening and respecting the speaker.
This week, the EAL Team is focusing on levelling ( assessing) the EAL studets’ English language. We use the Language and Literacy Levels document which reflects the literacy demands at each level and across all learning areas. It is primarily an assessment, monitoring and reporting document for all teachers, which can also be used to inform programming and planning.
The students continued working on Parts of Speech today. They were split into eight groups and each group investigated one part of speech. Each student is to become an expert in that topic to teach the others.
The best part of this lesson was the collaborative learning.
Akash is very proud of his work.
Below is the link to a website with lots of books on numerous topics ( Animals, Plants and Food, Technology, Family and many others).
We hope you’ll find your home language.
Last week, Dev, Yuvraj and Duy ( yr 1) looked at the structure of a sentence but in a more fun way.
First, they had to work out how puzzle bits go together.
Yuvraj is starting to see a pattern: the red colour writing ( the doer) always goes at the beginning!
Next lesson: naming and identifying the different parts of a sentence: the doer( noun), the verb ( the action) as well as linking sentences with conjunctions.
Many thanks to Miss Nery for choreographing the yr 6/7 girls in recognition of the Refugee Day ( June 20). The dance was performed at last week’s assembly. The girls managed to capture the drama of those who take to the dangerous seas in search of a safer life. Here is a shorter version of their dance.
Original music here:
We asked the students who did they think the refugees were and if they would welcome them to Australia. Here are some of their answers.
