Storyboarding in 12A & M


Posted by matta | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on June 6, 2016

In 1/2A & M we have been looking at storyboarding and the importance of one when planning a film. We watched a short Stop Motion Film called ‘Candy’.

We then completed a story board on the movie, thinking about the most important parts of the movie and drawing them in order.

Homonym Fun in 1/2ST


Posted by reneetimion | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on June 1, 2016

Homonyms are words like ‘fair’ and ‘fare’ which sound the same but are spelt differently and have different meanings; or words like ‘row’ (a noise) and row (to row a boat) which have the same spelling but sound different and have different meanings.

Types of homonyms:

homophones – words that sound the same (fair and fare)

homographs – words that look the same (row and row)


A game you can play at home is ‘Homonym Memory’. All you need is a table like the one below (you can make this easily in Microsoft Word using the ‘table’ button) or hand draw.

Steps to play:

  1. write and draw your homonyms in the chart
  2. cut out your pieces
  3. scatter them on a table face down
  4. take turns to pick up two cards
  5. if you get a pair, you keep them and get another turn
  6. the person with the most pairs at the end of the game is the winner

Happy Homonyms!

Reconciliation Week in 1/2ST


Posted by reneetimion | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on June 1, 2016

This week is ‘Reconciliation Week’ and therefore 1/2ST have been learning about what it means. We found out many things! Please walk past our room to see our ‘Wominjeka’ (welcome) sign that illustrates some of our learning. It is also featured below:


“If you see an Indigenous person this week, say sorry.” – Molly

“Care for Indigenous people. If you don’t believe it’s important, put yourself in their shoes and think about what it would feel like to not be equal.” – Finn

“I learnt that the Indigenous people, especially Marbo, was very kind.”

“I learnt that even if the Australians took some of the Indigenous people’s land, they are still trying to help them by things like reconciliation week.” – Tess

“The Wurundjeri people are special because they are the traditional owners of this land.” – Leo

“Respect the Indigenous people because we are all the same.” – Dom

“We are sorry Indigenous people for taking your land.” – Jude

“If we were all the same it would be boring.” – Tilly

“We wish we didn’t attack you.” – George
