During Term 3 in Italian we have enjoyed learning how to name family members. The children learnt the song ‘La Famiglia Dito’ and had lots of fun singing it together. They now also know their numbers up to 20 in Italian!!

Puppet Pals

The Foundation students have been working with Puppet Pals in iPad lessons and are starting to produce animations with scenes, characters, and vehicles.

We have been working on

1. Introductions where the children introduce the characters.
2. A problem or something happens
3. A conclusion

Recently the children have written scripts and then rehearse what they say before recording it on their iPad using the app Puppet Pals and then showing to to the rest of the class on the whiteboard. The children can choose from a variety of scenes and characters and they can even put there on face on the body of a character. They then record conversations while moving the characters and vehicles with their fingers.

A Lullaby for our Teddies

Now that our teddies had soft, comfortable beds and some furniture to make their homes comfortable, we thought that they needed a little song to help them to sleep. This is a song we learnt to send our teddies off to the Land of Nod.

Turning our houses into homes

We realised that our teddies were not very comfortable in their houses. We thought about all the furniture that we have in our homes that make living there a pleasure. We remembered that story of Horatio’s bed and decided to make some beds for our teddies. We designed the beds first and then used lots of different materials to make them, such as foam, cardboard, plastic, fabric, boxes, popsticks and lots more. some people also made other furniture for the teddies.

One day the Prep classes were collecting our little houses to show them to each other. To our surprise we found that some little bears had moved in! Some people thought that Santa had brought them, some people thought that they had come form the 100 acres and others thought that they had head that there were vacant houses just right for teddies!

We looked at our houses and saw that they were all the same. We read a story called “The Big Orange Splot” which told about how Mr Plumbean decorated his house. Our buddies helped us to design our houses. we used coloured pencil and crayons to plan the colours that we wanted to use.
