The Preps and Grade 1s have been studying World War 1 and reading lots of Picture Story Books about it, including the story of Simpson and his donkey. We have all felt incredibly moved by the efforts of our soldiers during this time.

During the week we have been looking at the influence of animals in the war. Please find our stories written below. Children were fascinated by the stories of both mascots and the working animals during this time as you will see reflected in their work.

We learnt the song Lest We Forget and discussed the Photos that accompanied this Youtube clip.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MsXN75wo02A

Yesterday we discussed the iconic nature of the Lone Pine and made our own individual Lone Pines to be displayed.

We finish the week commemorating ANZAC Day as the P-12 College, sharing our stories planting the RSL donated Lone Pine pine and sharing our own Anzac biscuits.

It has been a pleasure working with the children and seeing their interest, compassion and empathy for the soldiers and their families during this time in our history.

LEST WE FORGET

Bendigo Bank Piggy came to visit us about School Banking. We had photos taken with him. He gave us special bags with goodies inside them. If Mums and Dads want us to start banking at school, they need to fill in the form, return it and then we can bring our bank books, with some money, every Friday.

This afternoon in Science we discovered we could make a tea bag fly. BUT, we are not allowed to try it at home WITHOUT an ADULT. The tea bag works a little bit like a hot air balloon. We made hot air balloons to hang in our classroom.

Today we learnt some soccer skills with some special coaches. Their names were Matt and Rob. We practised kicking the ball around. We played the Soccer crab game where the crabs had to try and stop the fishes balls from getting across the ocean. At the end they gave everybody their own little ball and ruler.

We made special people. The special people helped to describe who we are. They had pictures of Me, My Family, My Friends, My House, My Favourite Food, My Pets and My Hobbies. They are displayed around the school.

This year some of our year 10 and 11 students are completing a Certificate 3 in Sport and Recreation. This requires students to apply their knowledge in a practical setting. This year the students will be developing their coaching skills by taking sessions with various age groups. This term we have been lucky to be able to coach the Prep-One’s in soccer. Pictures below.

Big Bash Cricket – Mallacoota

On Tuesday the 17th of March 9 of the bravest cricketers you will ever find attempted to win it all in Bairnsdale. An so close they can. Except for winning a game, they won it all. Some highlights:

Tyson – Captain courageous. Best cover drive since Mark Waugh. “I think that everyone went great. The player of the day I think was Ryley, taking 3 wickets in one over. Good job everyone!!!
Kelby – Ripping eye, smashed some fantastic shots (double points). “This one time, I hit the ball”
Mikey – A mini Glenn McGrath, spot on every ball. “I managed to bowl someone out!”
Rene – The Aaron Finch of the team. Hit a huge double pointer six (12 runs). “It was a fun day and it was good, everyone went well”.
Harry – The retirer! Dominated with the bat and ball. 25no and a removed hatrick. “I played an amazing shot for 12. Everyone was going nuts. But Ryley was player of the day”.
Archie – Speed demon, would give Mitch Johnson a run for his money. “Razzle Dazzle (Ryley) got an amazing 3 wickets (almost hatrick). Harry almost got a hatrick but couldnt make it. Everyone was positive and played amazing”.
Joseph – Hands like mittens. Took the catch of the day with a spekkie like Buddy. “It was good, nearly won towards the end, we might have won if harry got the hatrick”.
Bryce p – Dominated with the bat. Top scored twice. Was our Dave Warner. “I scored 12 touch downs and caught two hail marys”. He might need some work on his cricket terminology.
Ryley L – Shane Warne eat your heart out. 3 wickets in one over, on a hatrick, fantastic celebrations. “I almost scored a hatrick! and went out!!!”.

It was a fantastic day. They boys had heaps of fun while developing their team work, resilience, and effort. We are all very proud of them.

Today the Preps had their first Spanish lesson with Rachel. We counted to ten, named some colours and read the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, (La Oruga Muy Hambrienta). “Aún tengo hambre!” is what the caterpillar says when he is still hungry.

In Maths, we made houses that showed how many people live there. A blue square was for a Mum, a yellow square for Dad, red squares were for brothers and green squares were for sisters. A purple square was for the person that lived in the house and orange squares were for our pets.

A classmate brought in a very big abalone shell. Some of us wrote and drew about it in our Writer’s Notebook.

We also got to see Mrs Bruce’s baby red back spiders. Thank goodness they were in a jar!

Today we began our new activities to build up our muscles in our fingers. They are called Fine Motor Activities. Mrs Fellows traffic lights showed us which activities were popular and which ones weren’t. The Maths Link was very challenging, we enjoyed the spiral snake and Speedy Fingers is lots of fun. We love the new Crazy Sand and playing with the water outside was a little challenging also.

In Sport with Mrs Bruce we went in and out, up and down, over and under, below and beside on the play equipment. Poor Jayne was exhausted by lunch time.

During ICT we used Publisher to make a card for somebody. We had to practise making capital letters as well as changing the font, changing its colour as well as making the text bigger or smaller.
