Good evening parents,
I hope you have had a restful weekend and enjoyed some of the little sunshine we got today!
Plastic Bottles needed!
In Science this week, we are creating our own clouds in a bottle. If you have any clear plastic bottles - with no labels at home, we would love to have them by this Thursday. Please drop them into class anytime this week. Thank you in advance :)
Dream time story study
The children have loved learning about our unit on Dream time stories so far this term. They have looked at a variety of stories and explored different comprehension strategies for each. The children have loved learning the meaning behind each of the stories and will eventually be writing their own story in the coming weeks. Last week, we looked at the story 'The Echidna and the shade tree'. The children enjoyed creating their own echidna and designing their Aboriginal markings around their creation.
The children retold the story orally to a partner and also summarised the story in their own words in writing, a skill which we are working on throughout the term. They loved reading back their work and finding out that even though we all read the same story, we picked different things to include in our retell.
Below are some pictures of the children creating and writing their retell.
