In Science and Technology this week, we went to N1 for the Body Show. Mr McMullen and Mr White came with lots of interesting things to show us about how our body works.
Mr McMullen showed us ‘Anna’. We could see right inside her body.
Mr White talked to us about our bones. They help our body to stay up straight otherwise we would be just like a bean bag- all floppy!
Mr McMullen said that our brain is protected by the skull.
Mr White talked to us about our muscles. He has HUGE Muscles! Our muscles help us to move.
We talked about our lungs. They are just like a big balloon. The air goes in and out.
In English, we are learning that authors create a setting to tell us the ‘where and when’ of the story.
We drew all of the things that we would see at a party on balloons.
It was the Fun Run! It didn’t rain! Isn’t God good!
We had a fantastic time!
On Friday when we were in the Kindy Triangle, Mrs Belling had some tiny little chickens that she had just shown to the Playgroup children. They were so cute. We got to hold them. Some tried to get away.
In History we are learning about how we celebrate different events. Here are some of our stories:
We had a visitor come to our school. His name was Uncle Steven. Uncle Steven is an aboriginal man. He talked to us about his life when he was a little boy. He also showed us some musical instruments.
We watched a dreaming story on the Promethean board as well.
In History, we talked about the activities that we love doing with our Grandma or our Grandpa. Here are some stories that we told.
National Walk Safely to school Day:
Now in its 17th year, National Walk Safely to School Day (WSTSD) is an annual event when all Primary School children will be encouraged to walk and commute safely to school.
The event will be held throughout Australia on Friday 20 May 2016
This event helps raise awareness of Road Safety recommendations that:
Children up to eight years old should hold an adult’s hand on the footpath, in the car park, or when crossing the road; an adult is defined as a parent, caregiver, grandparent, sibling in high school or older, other relative or neighbour, or other adult as advised by the child’s parents/carers
Children up to ten years old should be actively supervised in the traffic environment and should hold an adult’s hand when crossing the road
At WCCS, we will be speaking to our K-2 students on Friday about Road Safety. Parents are encouraged also to have a conversation about Road Safety with their children to support this message, and , if possible, walk with their children either to or from school on Friday
