Have a look at our learning during investigations.

Investigations

Today we explored our creativity and collaboration in Investigations. We worked together to learn and develop skills together. Learning from each other and from our experiences is the best way for us to learn and remember.

Specks of Gold

Milania: My speck of gold was playing with Poppie and Savv and going to play with our buddies

Guneet: My speck of gold was matching the colours of the counters

Gurshaan: My speck of gold was playing with the marble run

Deeksha: My speck of gold was playing with playdough and making a butterfly

Ravleen: My speck of gold was playing outside with my friends

Alannah: My speck of gold was playing with Grace and Annabella

Ethan B: My speck of gold was making a paper crown

Jaimie: My speck of gold was going outside and playing police

Grace: My speck of gold was playing with Annabella with sorting the counters

Ekmann: My speck of gold was playing on the play ground

Numeracy is everywhere

Today we explored a range of Numeracy Investigations and connected them to our real life experiences. Investigations gives us an opportunity to make connections with our learning which in turn allows us to create a deeper, more authentic knowledge.

MUDLA (Multi-Disciplinary Learning Area)

MUDLA encompasses an array of aquaria accommodating species from around the globe. The room also has a focus on mammals (so far already home to Spinifex Hopping Mice) and reptiles (already homing a blue tongue lizard).  The children went to visit the new MUDLA room and the exciting additions. We also had Marron from Kangaroo Island join the HFCS aqua-life during the school holidays.

We explored and reflected in our learning journals. We cannot wait for all the learning opportunities that will take place here!

RGC and 6/7MS Assembly

Congratulations to RGC and 6/7MS on a fantastic assembly today! The assembly was written, choreographed and all movies were made by the students. What an amazing job they did!

Pets Morning

This morning the R-2 classes came together to celebrate St Francis Assisi. St Francis Assisi is the patron Saint of the animals. We were fortunate to have Father Sam conduct a blessing of the animals.

It was a great experience for the children to enjoy and express their love towards God’s animals.
