In Mathematics, the Foundation students have been learning about subtraction. The students have learnt a range of practical strategies for  subtracting small groups of numbers, such as visual displays or concrete materials. Here is a little song we have been singing to practise counting back.

 

Preps Big Day Out!

Earlier this week the Foundation students went on an excursion linked to their Inquiry learning about Story.

We toured the National Gallery of Victoria to learn more about how ‘Every Picture Tells a Story’ and then had a workshop in the gallery learning space. Everyone completed their own art piece using a significant artwork as an inspiration.

We viewed paintings, sculptures and contemporary installations. The students were certainly engaged and demonstrated thoughtful, insightful responses.

Pablo Picasso’s ‘The Weeping Woman’ was certainly a favourite for many.

Last week was our very special celebration of St. Anne’s Feast day. It is the day we remember the grandparents of Jesus; St. Anne and St. Joachim. We invite our own grandparents and special friends to school and have one massive day of celebration.

Thank you to everyone for coming!

Warning the following content may shock some viewers!

Whilst the Year 1/2 classes were away on at an excursion today and the Years 3-6 classes were out at Athletics the Foundation students had the entire school to themselves!

This led to a few situations which wouldn’t normally occur but were great fun!

We really did rule the school!
