Learning the days of the week can be fun! It’s also important for all the Foundation students to be able to identify and answer these questions; ‘What day is it today?’ ‘What day was it yesterday?’ ‘What day will it be tomorrow?’

We love singing the days of the week song and becoming more confident in knowing which regular events are associated with particular days of the week (eg: Wednesday is when we have our Italian lesson, etc.)

Religious Education

We have been learning about Jesus, the Good Shepherd. We read and viewed the story of the Good Shepherd (John 10:3-5) who protects his sheep and knows them by name. Jesus is like the good shepherd because he loves and protects each one of us.

We have also read the parable of Lost and Found. We talked about times when we might have been lost and how we felt at those times. We also talked about how the shepherd felt after finding the lost sheep and why he rejoiced at finding him again.

Bucket filling

During the first few weeks of the term, we have been learning about the importance of being a bucket filler. We have talked about how we all have an invisible bucket that can be filled by kind words and actions, such as sharing, smiling, helping and thanking. We made a list of all the ways that we can be bucket fillers. We also talked about bucket dipping behaviors that hurt our relationships with each other. When we fill other peoples’ buckets, we fill our own bucket too.

With our Year 6 buddies, we also talked about the ways that we can fill buckets. We made some small buckets using plastic cups and we made a pledge to be a bucket filler.

What does a self-portrait say about the artist?

Self portraits are more than your appearance, they show who you are and what you want to be.

Buddy Time

This week we met with our Year 6 Buddies for a fun ‘Getting to Know You’ session. We played a board game which provided lots of laughs and then we completed an activity about ourselves.

We found out who has a pet, where we like to holiday, our footy team, favourite foods, nicknames, all about our families and lots more.

We just love spending time with our buddies. Thank you to our Year 6 friends – you are awesome!

This week the Foundation students went on a brilliant, exciting, thrilling excursion to Base Camp Kids.

They participated in two workshops based around our Inquiry topic of ‘Changing States’.

They investigated reversible and irreversible changes in cooking and in Science experiments.

We became Masterchefs and Scientists as we created, observed, predicted, communicated and classified using simple materials and our senses.

Watch the video!

Wow! What a wonderful day!

Thanks to Signora the day was a huge success and everyone had a fantastico time.

Later we listened to Italian poetry, saw a Magician perform, built Leaning Towers of Pisa with various materials, learnt about the famous painting the ‘Mona Lisa’ and the Italian folktale ‘Strega Nona’.

Writing Persuasive texts

In Writing, the Foundation students have begun working on Persuasive texts. They have explored some mentor texts such as “Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus” by Mo Willems and “A Pig Parade is a Terrible Idea” by Michael Ian Black. We have begun by exploring the structure and language features of this type of text and the students have begun to write their own texts.

Our Learning Intention is: “We are learning to write a persuasive text.”

Personal And Social Capability

In Foundation, this curriculum focuses on enabling students to interact and play constructively with others and to establish friendships with peers. Students develop a vocabulary to describe the emotions they experience when interacting with others. Students begin to develop an understanding that individuals are unique but also have characteristics in common. The curriculum provides opportunity for students to begin establishing and naming the skills required to work in groups.

Recently our work in class, has focused on positive friendship skills; ways to make friends with peers, how to show that you care, how to broaden your friendship circle and include others.

      

We have also begun to work on Transition activities and looking forward to 2018!
