I will not be at school on Monday, as I will be competing at the Australian Dragon Boat Championships in Wodonga. Hopefully I will return on Wednesday with some of my own ‘Show and Tell!’ One of our regular casual teachers, Helen T will be teaching.

Spelling will still run, please ensure homework books are at school, if they are not already!

Welcome to Term 2!

Hello everyone, and welcome back to Term 2.

This term is sure to be an exciting one!

This term we are learning about Australian Animals. As a class this week, we have written down all the animals we know of that are native to Australia.

In Literacy we are learning about recounting or retelling events, which includes Orientation (who, what, when and where), putting events in order, and including personal comments or feeling. We are also learning about ‘cause and effect’.

In Maths we have been learning to put numbers in order, based on how many ‘towers of ten’ and ‘ones’ there are in the number.

During Golden Time, in Nick’s room, some of us made Kangaroo Pencil Holders!

Giving and receiving directions

Where has Term 1 gone!?

During mathematics this week, we have been learning how to give and receive directions to familiar locations. To practice, we went outside and recorded directions to a particular location, then tested out our direction giving skills with a partner!

From the Grade 1 team, have a happy and safe term break. We will see you all at the beginning of Term 2!

St John Ambulance Visit

On Monday, we had an incursion where we learnt about First Aid (Giada).

We learnt to check for Danger first (Marlie and Annessa). Then call out their name really loud.

If the person does not wake up , pinch the person on the shoulder very hard ( Artemis and Indigo)

We learnt the emergency number, 000, which will call an ambulance for help (Harriett).


“It was amazing” (Isla)

“It was a little scary, because you dont know if the person is sick or not” (Harriett)

“It was awesome, because I like the pictures” (Indigo)

“It was funny when I was acting” (Louis)

Posted in Information for Parents

Dear parents,

If there is a classroom issue, please let your child’s classroom teacher know first. It is our school protocol that all issues are addressed by the classroom teacher first, and then the year level coordinator (Anna) if not resolved. It is essential that the classroom teacher knows of the situation. They are the best person to help your child, as they have more of an understanding of the grade dynamics. If the problem has not been address it will then go to our assistance principal (Kyla) and then lastly to our principal (Helen).

Thank you.

Grade 1 Team

Writing Revolting Recipes


Over the past 2 weeks we have created, then began drafting our own ‘Revolting Recipes’. For inspiration, we have been reading ‘The Twits’ by Roald Dahl, learning about their horrible ‘Bird Pie’. We have also read ’Wombat Stew’, by Marcia K. Vaughan and Pamela Lofts. After writing, we have begun editing our work, checking to see if it makes sense, and also including lots of verbs and adverbs! Many of us are now up to the publishing stage, where we are writing our recipes on the laptop.
