Week 5

Monday 10th February

Look at all these strategies we have been using in our Number Talk. Ford has been working really hard on his tally marks. Terri-Marie is doing a super job with tens frames and Gracie used the Greater Than/Less Than symbols. What super mathematicians we have in p1/2! ⭐️

Here’s a video of Ford reading a story to Miss Mackay today. He did such a brilliant job using Fred in his Head!

Wednesday 12th February

In PE this week we have been learning about different types of jumps. Here are some pictures of us trying out star, tuck, 180 and 360 degree jumps. We all did a fantastic job and staying safe on equipment and listening well πŸ˜€

Great job everyone! Have a super long weekend. I can’t wait to hear all your stories about what you get up to 😊

Week 4

Monday 10th February

We collected data on people’s favourite minibeasts in the class. With the help of the p7s we created our pictographs on the tablets. It was clear that the favourite minibeast in our class was a butterfly.Β 

Tuesday 11th February


In PE, we have been refining our skills in dodgeball. Each lesson we talk about the rules and change or add in a new rule. This week we swapped the bean bags for balls. Everyone was safe and followed the rules really well.

Wednesday 12th February



Samuel going over and above. He wrote out this calculation on his whiteboard. We talked through it as a class – this really helped. Samuel thought very carefully about this. He knew there was a mistake and needed to fix it. The pictures don’t show it but he ended up changing his mind and writing 12. Great job overcoming challenges, Samuel!

Thursday 6th February

The P2s were super excited today. We learnt how to hold our instruments and how they should be played.

Super well done to Blake who received this award at his Football Training on Wednesday.

Friday 7th February

Today we have been learning about food chains. At lunch Michael collected berries from the bush in the infant playground. We used these berries to learn about what animals eat berries. Then we spoke about what animals eat the animals that eat berries. Michaels picture explains it much better than Miss Mackay can!!

Thanks for a great week everyone 🌟🌟🌟

Huge well done to Ford who received the Team Trophy at the Friday Football training with Mikey at School.


On Friday we used clay to make our own 3D minibeasts. Here are some pictures of our amazing artwork. We will be painting them in class next week πŸπŸ›πŸ¦‹πŸŒπŸžπŸœπŸ¦ŸπŸ•·πŸ¦—

We got to try out different instruments at Big Noise! There are no words to explain how excited we all were!! Everyone got to try out every instrument and then choose which one they liked best 1-4 ( Violin, Viola, Cello and Double base). Before we learn to play our instruments we make a 3D real life model of it first. How exciting! πŸ˜€
