To culminate our Inquiry Learning for third term we turned our learning spaces into an International Space Station.

What fun we had aboard the space station, blasting off and travelling through space towards the Moon!

Fortunately Mrs Green had taught us the perfect song and off we went!

We designed our own Space Mission patches for our spacesuits, built spaces within our space station to live, conduct experiments, read space stories, exercise and eat. Then we made Australian flags, followed each other and held on the lifeline that led us to the surface of the moon where we planted our flags.

Just like the real International Space Station our space exploration adventure went well and we were all safely returned to Earth by home time.

During Term 3 our focus in Physical Education classes has been Athletics. Last week the Foundation and Year 1/2 students participated in a mini Athletics during their Physical Ed lessons. 
With the help of Year 6 students the children rotated through a number of activities (using modified equipment) including long jump, hurdles, agility run, javelin, discus and shot put. It has been incredibly pleasing watching the students develop their throwing jumping and running technique as well as their willingness to ‘have a go’.

Three dimensional shapes are everywhere! And today we found all of these 3D shapes playing a game of ‘I Spy’ in our classroom.

In class this week we have learnt to describe position and movement. We have used the everyday language of location and direction, such as ‘between’, ‘near’, ‘next to’, ‘forwards’, ‘towards’. We have created mazes then provided simple directions to guide the movement of a lego person.

God is our protector. We trust in him and are not afraid. The Shepherd looks after us. This week in class we heard the story of Moses, who was protected by God and in turn, led and protected his people.

Prayer:

Lord, you care for us and you protect us as we live each day. You have sent angels to watch over us. May we always feel your protective shield around us. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
