    What Does The Clock Say? (Mr De Zilva)

    Recently, we have been learning about Time in maths. The prep focus has been on days of the week and ordering events while the grade ones have been exploring clocks and reading to the hour/half hour. We made a music video to share what we've learnt so far. Happy Watching!

    ARRAY CITIES! (Mr De Zilva)

    We've been learning about Making and Sharing groups. To finish off this topic, we made array cities. To build our array cities we needed to use coloured paper to make buildings. We used little squares for the windows and these little squares also formed our arrays. At the end of the activity, we shared our arrays with the class and described them as rows and columns, groups of and as multiplication. E.g. (4 rows of 3 = 12) (4 groups of 3 is 12) and (4x3=12).

    INFLATABLE FUN! (Mr De Zilva)

    Last Tuesday at the swimming pool, everyone had a chance to have a turn on the humungous, bouncy inflatable! Teachers and parents threw buckets of water at us while we attempted to complete the inflatable obstacle course. Some of the obstacles were easy, but others were quite tricky! We all enjoyed the challenge of completing the inflatable obstacle course and can't wait to try it again next year!

    Warrook Farm Excursion! (Mr De Zilva)

    On Tuesday the 19th September, P/1 JDZ visited Warrook Farm! Everyone was excited for the excursion and ready to have lots of fun! We went on a wagon ride, we got to see the sheep dog "Rocky" round up the sheep, we learnt how to shear a sheep, we all got to milk "Daisy" the cow, we fed the kangaroos, calves and goats and we also saw lots of other animals such as horses, birds, camels, emus, wombats and koalas in their enclosures. We all had a fantastic time at the farm and learnt lots about where some of our food and clothing comes from!

    Our visit from Harold the Giraffe! (Mr De Zilva)

    On Monday, we were lucky enough to go and visit Harold the Giraffe in the Life Education Van. Everyone was very excited to meet Harold! He encouraged us to make safer and healthier choices. We learnt about the benefits of healthy eating, physical activity, strategies to stay safe, and how our body reacts in different situations. We had a great time participating in all the activities Susan and Harold had planned for us!
