For health this term we have been exploring bones. Last Friday our class took over the St. Joseph building while the Year 5s were on camp. We got into groups and had to trace around a person’s body onto the very large butcher’s paper we were given. We then had to correctly place all the bones inside the traced body. There were a few challenges and laughs along the way, but we all got there in the end. What do you think of our skeletons?
Mr Baldock gave us a Perimeter challenge this week. Using newspaper, sticky tape and a 1 metre ruler Mr Baldock asked us to create a shape with a particular perimeter. It was fun working together and problem solving to try and complete the challenge first. In the end it was Maya, Natalija, Verity, Phoebe and Oscar’s team that were the quickest at creating a shape with a perimeter of 4 metres. This is what each of the teams created below.
In keeping with this years Book Week theme ‘Read across the universe’ and our class novel ‘Sally Marshall is not an Alien’ we chose an Alien theme for our Book Week parade. We had a great time dressing up and parading our creations in front of the whole Campus. We hope you enjoy the Google+ animations and photos of the event below.
Note: Unfortunately the animations on Google+ happen automatically and some photos didn’t animate.
For book week each class was buddied up with another class from across Campus. We had the pleasure of visiting Mrs Wuttke’s Reception / Year 1 class on Monday. We went there to share our Storybirds that we had created. They were a great audience and we enjoyed being able to share our stories with them.
On Sunday the 11th of August Hannah and I had a gymnastics competition. We competed against four other groups of girls, it was really tough. Some girls were even doing flips and rolls in the air! Hannah was competing first, because she is in a older group than me. Hannah started off the same way as I did. When Hannah came out I came in. My group started off on vault and did handstand flat backs, After vault we went to bars and did our bar routine, After bar we went to beam and did our beam routine then went to floor. Hannah thought floor was the best, because Hannah remembered her routine. I thought bars was the best, because I remembered my routine. At the end we both got 4th place over all and we had a great time.
On Friday night all the Early Years Classes came back to school for the Early Years Book Launch. While we were there some books got published. Everyone had been working on their stories for along time, and most people had even added a blurb and a page about the author.They even created an end paper. I really enjoyed reading the books full of wonderful pictures. Mrs Daldry had made a special visit to read the books and talk to us about the interesting things people have prepared for the book launch. After we looked at the books we had a big supper. It was a very exciting night for a lot of people!
I had the great pleasure of presenting Oscar with a Distinction certificate for his efforts in the University of New South Wales Computer Skills Competition. We are very proud of your achievement Oscar. Well done. 🙂
