Today 12A brainstormed as many Verbs as we could possibly think of. Then students acted out these verbs in real life and created a collage. Some real interesting words!

Whats your favourite verb?

1/2A’s procedural writing using ‘Pic Collage’


Posted by matta | Posted in ICT | Posted on July 30, 2014

Today, 1/2A used an app called Pic Collage to create procedural posters. Students planned and then created a set of instructions using the camera and then labelling each picture to describe what it shows.

Who wants to have a go at drawing a minion …?

Tree Day Fun!


Posted by moya | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on July 25, 2014

Today the 1/2s spent the morning (and some of the afternoon) planting trees to bring the school yard to life for Schools Tree Day! We planted 100 trees. Everyone planted different kinds of trees, some were long and some were short. We think they will grow bigger and bigger! We hope that they will still be there when we finish school. We used straws to help people see where the trees were so no one would step on them. It was such great fun!


To plant a tree you need to –

Dig a hole for your tree.

Then you squeeze the tube to get your tree out.

 Give the roots of your plant a little tickle.

Then you put your tree in the hole. You need to make sure the roots are in the ground.

Fill the hole with soil. Pat it down nice and hard.

Water the tree.

Watch it grow!


A huge thank you to our lovely parent helpers who braved the cold, you were all wonderful! – Special mention to Caitlin, Jenny and Nadia who were in it for the long haul. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

1/2LT’s Chance and Probability


Posted by reneetimion | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on July 21, 2014

In 1/2LT we’ve been looking at Chance and Probability in Numeracy. Last Friday we did some rotations where we had a number of different activities. We looked at rolling dice, tossing coins, counters in bags and some sensible and silly scenarios! The language we focused on was ‘certain, likely, possible, unlikely and impossible.’ Feel free to have some conversations at home about these. We really enjoyed ourselves and learnt a lot!

Today 1/2A used iPads for the first time in class. We used an app called Doodle Buddy, where students put on their creative hats to draw a picture using various tools such as backgrounds, stamps, stencils and paintbrushes. Students wrote a creative piece of writing to accompany this picture.
