Today was a wonderful celebration of European culture. There was dancing, singing, musicians performing, pizza box races and a demonstration about the Italian cultural traditions.

Our day was bellisima, fantastico and molto molto bene!

We loved the delicioso pizza and gelato. Tanti grazie Signora Cannarozzo for organising such a splendido day for us!

Our Beautiful World

In Religious Education, we have been learning that our beautiful world is a gift from God. We have explored the story of Genesis and we have looked at images of the animals, insects and plants that fill the earth. We created art works in response to all we have read and seen.

2D Animation “Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus” from CVCC Media Technology on Vimeo.

This term the Foundation students will be learning to write a persuasive text. They will analyse the structure and vocabulary of this text type by exploring a range of mentor texts. We will begin with the hilarious “Don’t let the Pigeon Drive the Bus” by Mo Willems. The pigeon tries a range of ways to persuade the reader to let him drive the bus, but we were not convinced!

What a fun term we had developing the skills and basic understanding of the elements of Dance. Each lesson encompassed warm-ups and stretching, dance steps, improvisation, responding and reflecting and finally cool-down breathing exercises. The students were able to experiment with a variety of different movements, demonstrated their understanding of different tempos and performed some dance moves individually or with a partner for their peers. Their confidence grew each week and they encouraged each other in the process. I have thoroughly enjoyed watching their creativity and dancing along to their favourite music.
