Our Learning Today
Come Read with Me
Today we completed another 1600 steps for reconciliation week – Well done Team R1 MR
HASS- Today we had a fun discussion about household items from the past. Please continue this conversation with your child about objects you or their Grandparents might have and how they have changed.

There was no walking around or taking photos on these phones. 🙂

Dreaming Story – The Blue Wren
Adum – All the birds were fighting over who has the strongest legs.
Elnathan – The first bird said look at my wings they are so colourful and the other bird said who cares about your wings look at my legs. They were fighting over things who had the best legs and wings. The wise old owl said keep it down and then they started arguing and then they had a competition and the wise old owl what can you all do. The owl said you can fly.
Elnathan – It teaches you not to fight.
Mya – The owl flapped it’s wings.
Abraham – It teaches you not to cheat because then you won’t be able to do the things anymore.
Keth – The story teaches about reading.
Jordan – You shouldn’t fight because you might hurt someone.
The Blue Wren is a dreamtime story with a message about individuality. We are all unique and we need to celebrate this.
The children then explore 3 different experiences:
- Dot painting
- Constructing a bird
- Aboriginal symbols to tell a story.
Have a wonderful weekend – See you on Monday.
