This term, the Foundation students have been using the Book Creator app on the school iPads. They have each created a simple e-book about technology items. The students needed to take photos of the different technology items, then insert these photos into the app with a caption to label each one. They also had to include a title page and backgrounds using different fonts and colours.

Here are some screenshots as examples of what they have created:

In Religion we have been learning about how God created the world as a gift of love. He wants people to enjoy and respect the whole of creation. We have also learnt how each person can care help to care for the environment.

We have learnt a couple of lovely songs that the students really enjoy. Take a look and soon the whole family will be singing along…

Posted by owenf | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on October 16, 2018

In class we have begun learning about Persuasive Writing.

We have read the texts; ‘A Pig Parade is a Terrible Idea’ and ‘Duck! Rabbit!’

We have discussed our own opinions and the reasons for our point of view.

Soon we will begin having a go at our own Persuasive Writing texts. Maybe we will try to persuade mum or dad to let us stay up later, to let us have a new pet or maybe make a suggestion for a family holiday.

This week we went out in the sunshine to learn more about capacity. ‘Capacity’ is the amount a container can hold. We used terms such as; full, empty and half full. We used lots of containers of various capacities to find out which held the ‘most’ or ‘more’ and which held the ‘least’ or less.

This term the Foundation students have been practising their word processing skills with Google Docs. They have used keyboards to type their names, inserted images of things that they like and used the microphones to experiment with voice typing. Each week they have been required to find the same work that they have completed in previous sessions to continue their project.

Here are a few examples of their work:

Last week was our very special St. Anne’s Feast day. It’s our day to celebrate our school’s link to the grandparents of Jesus, St Anne and St. Joachim. On this day we love to welcome our grandparents and special friends to share a day at school together. We always celebrate Mass together, spend some time together in the classroom, join in at assembly together and then share lunch together.

This year we made Family Trees together as a link to unit of Inquiry based learning. It was lovely to hear the family stories being shared as everyone worked to create a special Family Tree.
