Music is Fun!

Today we had an awesome time at Music is fun. The band was fantastic and played lots of different instruments. Some of us got to participate in some of the songs. One of band memebrs even taught us how to write a song. He said that every song follows a two step process…

Step One:
Choose an emotion: Every song has an emotion. A song could be happy,sad,angry or excited.

Step Two: Choose a topic. Every song needs to be about something.

He made up a song right in front of us on stage it was an excited song about football. He was pretty clever!
Check out some of the photos.

Here is part of one of their songs (sorry about the quality!)

How do you spell….?

Today we all received our own just right spelling book. This book is something we use at school (and even sometimes at home to practice words that we have spelt wrong in our writing. The number one way that we use to learn how to spell is the look-say-cover-write-check method, but we talked about some other ways we can practice our words. Can you think of any other ways to remember your words? 

Swimming Lessons: Week One Term 3

We have started off the term in a very busy fashion and straight into swimming lessons. Well done to everyone who remembered their swimming gear. In today’s lessons the instructors spent a bit of time getting to know our swimming ability do they can plan out the week with perfectly matched activities. Our lessons start at 2:00pm all week long!

Writing about our school

Today’s writing task was for use to write about our school. We would like to create a piece of work that aims to tell people about all the things that make our school so special.

Here is something called a padlet that we can use to brainstorm our ideas…

What do things do we defintely need to talk about with our school?

One of the activities we participated in for World Colouring Day was the painting of a giant banner. Each class got to make a variety of colurs using the three primary colours.

What did you do for World Colouring Day?

Do you know what colours you can make by combining some primary colours?

The Colour Run

Well that was fun! Today all grade one students participated in the THE WORLD KIDS COLURING DAY on May 6th and there was nothing but fun and laughter for all. The teachers got themselves into a colourful mess whilst showering the kids in all the rainbow colours.  The day was also about raising awareness about what SAVE THE CHILDREN does, teaching the kids that we’re lucky to live in such a lucky country.  Lots of activities happened throughout the day to do with colouring and we’re sure this will become an annual event!

Making pictures come to life!

As a part of Kids World Colouring Day all the Grade one classes completed different activities that all had a colouring theme. The theme for World kids colouring day was “Dreams’ We thought what better way to celebrate the dream theme by making our pictures come to life. Using the great app colAR Mix we made our coluring creations come to life! Our pictures literally jumped out of the page and started to move around. It was awesome!

You can have a go at home if you have an ipad. Download the sheet below, or visit the website above colour it in, download the app and watch your creation come to life!
