Today we went to Library and made little people after reading My Best Friend Bob.

The Preps stayed for lunch today. It was great having them here for longer.

For Show and Tell Taylor brought in her Tyranosaurus Rex to show us. He was so cute and he roared just like a real dinosaur. His name was Rex.

This afternoon in Science we created the front of our Science Books. Next week we will be talking about the 5 senses. I wonder what they are?

We were introduced to Sammy Snake and the letter s that makes an ssssssss sound.


This is a photo of the bee hive that was on the shade cloth on Friday.

Any work that we need to finish is listed in our diary.  We can check our diary each day and see if we have anything else to complete. Our spelling words and books we read at home are listed in our diaries also. We are learning to be organized.

We discussed living and non-living things and things that came from a living source.

Recount writing is done on a Monday and some people in our room wrote about their weekend.

We are learning about grid references and how to read a map in preparation for our trip to Melbourne.


Today when we came to school there was a beehive attached to the underneath of the shade cloth where we eat our lunch. The area was taped off and we couldn’t go near the bees. We watched a man come and remove the hive. We went to the library and read a ‘big book’ called ‘The message of the Dance” by Ann Coleridge and illustrated by Alexis Beckett. We went on the computers and found three facts about bees.

We have a worksheet folder to put our worksheets in and if we don’t finish our worksheets at school we can take them home to do.

We started our ‘reflections’ book today. We write about things we have learnt and things we are going to concentrate on the next week.

Our message today for ‘active leisure’ was “It takes two to be a friend”.

Our fact for today was about Eleanor Farjeon. She was a famous children’s poet.

We did ‘acrostic’ poems about ourselves. They are displayed on our door.





Open to knowledge


Our poem about school.

We saw photo’s of a class members trip up ‘big beach’.

In our P-12 assembly we were told about a ‘fun run’ that is coming up.

We had a new teacher helping out in our classroom today. It was great to have her.


  • Today we learnt how important water is and what percentage of the body is made up of water!
  • We read Penny Polly diary
  • We had to choose ten things we would take if we were put on a deserted island

We got the rest of our requisites today.

Class members run ‘huff n puff’ in the morning now.

Today we worked out our food for our Melbourne trip.

We looked at the menu’s and chose foods we wanted to eat and costed them out.

The night we have pasta we can afford to have a dessert as well. YUM YUM!



We worked with our buddies today and we did measuring.

It was a P-6 assembly today and it was the Preps first time at an assembly.

‘Gabby Get Along’ was introduced to us. She will teach us about getting along and being a good friend.

In the afternoon the Grade Ones used bubbles and balloons in dance. They moved like a bubble and popped!

We used balloons and bubbles in dance toady. We had to move like a bubble and a balloon. We floated, drifted and popped.

In ‘active leisure’ we did a treasure hunt and the secret message was… (you’ll have to read all about it on Monday)

We finished our Big Book, ‘Taking Care of Henry’ by Anne Fine and illustrated by Paul Howard and we voted on who we wanted to stay with and the next door neighbour was our choice.

Some boys in our room are getting ready for ‘Clean Up Australia’ and they collected a whole large bag of rubbish.
