Werribee Zoo

Grade one and two students have been inquiring into different animal communities and how they are connected to their environments. We were extremely lucky to have an excursion to Werribee Zoo where we saw different animals that lived in the Savanna. We were fantastic explorers in the ‘Habitat Heroes’ class and excellent inquirers when looking at different environments that the animals live in. Here are some photos from our excursion.

The 12’s have been busy!

We have been inquiring into procedural writing. We were very enthusiastic when making sandwiches, smiley face biscuits, play dough and jelly. We loved making different things as well as writing about them. At the end we were able to eat our sandwiches, smiley face biscuits and jelly.

Pancake Day

Last week the 12s had Pancake Day. We were very lucky to have so many parent helpers! We all cooperated together to mix the pancakes and then we independently write a procedure on how to make them. They were delicious and every student was able to mix, eat and observe the pancakes cooking. We would like to thank all the parent helpers for helping us on our special day.

Welcome back!

A warm welcome back to students and families of GWPS for 2018! We have had a great start to term 1. All students have settled in beautifully and have done a fantastic job of being independent. This term we are inquiring into our transdisciplinary theme ‘Who we are’, where the central idea is ‘Relationships can make us feel that we belong’. We are looking forward to being committed to our learning by cooperating with our peers as well and working independently. As a class we have created an essential agreement so that we are all able to have a safe, happy and fun learning environment.

Grade 1 / 2 News

On Tuesday 22nd August, Grade 1 / 2 had an excursion to ArtVo. Our day started off with a bus trip to Docklands. All students have been inquiring into different cultures and different ways that people express themselves. Our excursion to ArtVo allowed our students to be creative and curious whilst exploring the various artworks on display. Students were fantastic inquirers throughout the excursion, asking experts about the different art and finding out new information to their wonderings.

Well done to all students for a fantastic day. Everyone gained new knowledge and had the chance to find out information about different cultures and paintings.

Welcome back!

A warm welcome back to term 3.

This week we celebrated NAIDOC week. NAIDOC week celebrations are held across Australia each year to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. NAIDOC is celebrated not only in indigenous communities, but by all Australians. This week grade 1/ 2 acknowledged NAIDOC by informing students of the historical and cultural significance of these communities.

Our current unit of inquiry is ‘How we express ourselves’. Our central idea is ‘People in their culture communicate and express themselves for different purposes and audiences’.

We have been inquirers when exploring different ways that Aboriginal people communicate and express themselves. We have been creative when making Aboriginal flags and art work and were able to communicate our questions to our peers about how different Aboriginal communities communicate and express themselves through music and playing the didgeridoo.
