We have all been working hard for the last two weeks publishing our stories and getting them ready to be showed off to the world!
This week we have had the opportunity to share our stories with our parent and our classmates in 1D and 1C! We practiced showing our speaking and listening skills. We said this would include:
While sharing we have also been practicing giving feedback about what we thought. We described a few things we enjoyed about the story and possibly something that could be improved for next time.
We should all be proud of what we have achieved!
This week we have been celebrating Book Week! On Tuesday we went to watch Kim Lardner perform. He is a writer, illustrator and story teller!
He drew Louis on the board with a really fat belly! He also drew dinosaurs! He told a really funny story about going to McDonalds and throwing a pickle on the window!
By Leyla, Marlie, Kiyara and Lara
On Friday we brought in a gold coin and were able to dress up as a book character from one of our favourite books. At the start of the day we had a parade in front of the whole school showing off all our amazing costumes. We were also able to participate in a book swap!
As part of FMP this term we have all been learning Tennis skills.
On Thursday the 21st of September (Week 10) the Grade 1’s are having a dinner and disco at school. Please click on link for the permission note (if you do not already have one) and return on the Friday the 15th.
Crash!! Towers around us fall! We keep building. Determined to go higher and higher. We get others to help, as building on our own becomes too difficult. Higher, and higher we go…stretching up above our head now…must…reach…. the top…Phew! We place the block. Nick! Look how tall our tower is!
On Wednesday, the people from Green Hat Workshops ran a maths incursion for us. This involved building anything we wanted using rectangular prism blocks! Some students built skyscrapers, so tall that we had to stand on platforms to reach the top of the tower. Others built pirate ships, hide outs, ‘chicken solders’ and even the MCG! It was fantastic to see so many different ideas and creative thinking.
We all thought it was great fun! There are definitely some future engineers amongst us!
Apologies everyone, there was a typo on the note sent home. Below are the correct details.
Dear parents and guardians,
To help us with our integrated unit ‘Then and Now’ we are asking all grade 1 students to bring in an artefact that is special to them e.g. their first tooth, teddy, blanket, birthday present or souvenir from a holiday.
What: special artefact
When: Tuesday 22nd of August
Thanks for all your help and support.

Book Week Dress Up
On Friday the 8th September in memory of Liz Collins, CNPS will take part in Book Week. This event will coincide with Literacy and Numeracy Week and will see all students and teachers coming to school dressed up as their favourite book character or author! For example, you may wish to come dressed as Matilda, Harry Potter, Dr.Seuss, Where’s Wally, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Madeleine, or Little Red Riding Hood. We are asking all who participate to kindly donate a gold coin. All money raised from this event will go to towards purchasing books in memory of Liz Collins.
At 9.05am, we will have a special parade outside on the basketball courts (weather permitting), to give everyone a chance to show off their fancy costumes. If the weather is poor, the parade will be moved into the hall. Parents and friends are more than welcome to attend the parade. Thank you in advance for your kindness and support.
We look forward to seeing a sea of book characters at CNPS!
