We took our classroom outdoors and enjoyed our new grassy learning space. K Franklin were investigating volume and capacity using a really fun range of materials, such as sand, water and even curly pasta. Lucky we were outside because our math learning got a little messy!
Who would have thought ten pin bowling could be so much fun and so educational?! K Franklin love literacy sessions because we practice writing our sight words in really cool ways.
We are very proud of our learning in K Franklin this week. We have been learning to combine two groups of numbers and add them to find the total! We are even starting to keep numbers in our head and count on and then we can write number sentences. We always remember to check our answers with a buddy.
K Bluebell have been using the book “COUNT AND QUACK” during maths lessons to find new friends of different numbers. Firstly, we roll a dice. Then we build a tower of that number. We “crack” it and using the two parts of the tower, we write a number sentence.
Firstly, Miss Mignacca chose people who were sitting and reading quietly to come to one of the two tables and paint on a piece of paper using a house template. We had to paint on the opposite side so that we would use the template as a cut out for later.
The next day when the paint had dried, we needed to cut out the windows. Miss Mignacca cut out most of the windows in the house template because only a few people in the class wanted to do it themselves.
Then we cut out the house template along the lines and folded on the dotted lines. Once we were done, we glued cellophane behind the windows and folded and glued the house together.
Finally, we put a battery candle inside and we glued the top of the house together and then we were finished!

K Bluebell are excitedly preparing for the art show in week 9. We are making Diwali candle holders to finish off our wonderful unit of work on Celebrations. We are also paying our respects to a wonderful Dr Seuss book called “Oh the places you will go”. We have made hot air balloons completely from scratch using paper mache and balloons. Miss Cooke has had some amazing parent helpers coming in each Tuesday afternoon to help K Bluebell complete their works of art.
K-Bluebell are so lucky to have many wonderful parents who volunteer their time to come and help in the classroom. Every Tuesday, Bluebell have art time. It’s super handy to have extra helpers as it can get a bit messy! If you would like to come and help, please see Miss Cooke.
On Tuesday, Kindy participated in their first ever athletics carnival. They were so enthusiastic and excited! Many students in K-Bluebell were even fast enough to win a place as well.
All the teachers were very proud of their students and how well they behaved!
