This week was eSmart week and here are some things we learned:
Do not say bad things on the internet. Don’t bully someone online or you can’t take it off the internet. Do not talk to strangers. Don’t press any other buttons. Don’t say any mean stuff or people will report you to the police. Don’t tell your password. Keep your identity a secret. By Joel, Inkido, Rayshan and Riaz

This term we have been curious about making different effects with paint. We tried blowing it, spinning it, pouring it and scraping it.
The art works below are made using a salad spinner. We made predictions about what would happen when we put the ink in the spinner and then gave it a spin. We think the effects are amazing.
When we finished spinning our work we used markers to draw contour lines around the shapes that the spinner had made. The ink made swirling shapes and patterns and even mixed together to make new colours. We hope you enjoy our work.
During this term students have been working on their “Curiosity’ in dance.
Each class began the term by creating a list of wonderings. In year 1/2 the students were interested in a variety of dance dancing and curious about how they can use their bodies to express emotions. We started the term off with a focus on Bush Dances, learning a dance called Emus and Kangaroos. This song involved us following a set routine and incorporating animal movements in the dance. Classes 1F, 1J and 1A performed the dance at assembly. We then moved onto how other animals move in dance and created a dance to the Lion King’s ‘Circle of Life’ we had a focus on slow, strong and smooth movements while prentending to be an animal. At the end of each lesson we videoed our routine so we could track our progress and use a variety of self-reflection and feedback tools.
The results have come in and the hard work we’ve all been putting in has paid off. We have officially finished in the TOP 10 nationally for Word Mania. Classroom teachers will be handing out certificates to all students by the end of the week so make sure you celebrate our efforts. We are super proud of our amazing achievements!
