Today we welcomed Miss Claudia Adami to our class. Miss Adami is in her second year, studying a Bachelor of Education. She will be working with us for four weeks in term 4. We enjoyed meeting Miss Adami today and hope that we will all learn lots during our time together.

We continued our learning through exploring our investigations amongst The Village. Go to “The Village” Blog to see our learning…
Investigations, Wednesday – Week 9, Term 3
Reflection – Investigations
Manseerat: In Investigations I was doing the drawing tutorials with Anna and I was making a cute elephant and I was teaching Anna how to make one. I was also playing a game with Alphonsa, Lily and Georgia.
Dion: In Investigations me and Alex were making bow and arrows. We got sticks and we put rubber bands around them and we were making arrows with pop-sticks. We used a growth mindset because it was really hard to make but we didn’t give up.
Jess: In Investigations I was making the koala and I was using lots of things on it. I did some black paper for the nose and the brown paper for the eyes and the black paper for the ears too and they grey thing for the body and then pop sticks for the arms and legs.
Oliver: In Investigative Play I was on the laptop even so I was searching up for Australia, even I found the Australia song, the National Anthem. I put it on the air play. We sing the song in the hall for assembly.
Jayden B: In Investigations I was in with the spaghetti and I experimented when it’s strong and when it’s not strong and I was doing it with Kurt and Felix. I put the block of there and the spaghetti was strong. It broke a little bit.
Liam: I was at the blocks and I was doing the spaghetti. I found out that it’s strong.
We read “Blue Sky, Yellow Kite” by Janet A Holmes and Jonathan Bently. This was a wonderful story about friendship and forgiveness.
Before reading the book we made predictions about the story.
Georgia: I think that the girl steals the yellow kite and then her friend gets sad because she doesnt know where her kite is and she keeps looking for it everywhere but it’s not there and then the kite flew away.
Kylen: Maybe the girls is someone stole her kite and maybe it stuck in a tree and maybe someone will get it
Jess: I think the story is about a girl who sstole someones kite and it stuck in the tree and nobody could get it and she found a friend and she got it and she said “thank you”
Ann: I think that girls going to take her friend’s yellow kite
Akemjot: I think she will play with the kite
Liam: I think she snatched the yellow kite
Deng: She flies the kite in the sky
What are some emotions that were present in the book?
Anna: I think Daisy felt sad and guilty because I think she feels bad for William because I think she feels bad that she stole his kite
Aurora: I think at the end Daisy and William felt happy because they made a kite and they flied it together. I think William felt sad too because she stole the kite.
Manseerat: I think Daisy felt sorry for taking the kite.
Georgia: I think William felt happy when he had the kite and then when Daisy stole the kite he felt sad. Then they were both happy together when Daisy had a kite too.
We then borrowed our books and shared them with our friends.

Writer’s Workshop and Focus Groups
Some of us worked on our Writer’s Workshop while others worked in small focus groups focusing on different sound blends such as sh, ch and ph. Another focus group learned about word families with the _at sound such as cat, hat, flat, sat, etc.
We went to the playground for our big muscle fitness.
When we returned to the class we had a practice of our liturgy songs and readings. Our liturgy will be on Friday at 2.30pm all parents, carers, relatives and friends are welcome to join us in our classroom at this time. We hope to see you there!
