The All-Stars were busy setting up a shop during the last couple of weeks of Term 3. Everyone was busily raiding the recycling home at home for cartons, boxes, bags and jars and there is now quite a lot of stock on our shelves.
Students have worked in teams to make signs for the store and lots of pretend food to sell. The All-Stars have had lots of fun playing shops and buying food to use with the kitchen set. We are looking forward to lots more shopping in Term Four.
Today we were imaging what we might look like when we are 100 years old. We got to imagine all the amazing modern inventions that might be added to our bodies.
We were working with our buddies. They helped us with our writing and some of the drawing.
We were thinking about what we will be like when we grow up and what things we might like. It was good to work with our buddies because the writing was easier because they helped us.
There was some amazing work being done. Everyone was working hard and no one was being silly or mucking around. Maybe this was because we were having fun, also because our buddies were here to help us.
What do you think YOU might be like when you are 100 years old?
What inventions or amazing things do you think we might see in the future?
When the weather in Malmsbury turned cold and stormy rather abruptly last term the Prep-One All Stars decided to test their writing skills and write some weather similes. There was a lot of discussion about how wet the rain might be and whether wind that is as wild as a tiger would be worse than wind as wild as a snake. Here are our finished weather poems.
The Prep One All-Stars have been getting very creative lately. Last week they learnt how to use a Surrealist art technique called ‘frottage’, which means ‘to rub’ in French. The All-Stars were madly hunting for interesting textures and surfaces around the school – they then placed pieces of paper over them and rubbed over them with crayon. The results were really cool.
The All-Stars have also been looking at how illustrators use different techniques in their pictures. We learnt how to recognise water-colour illustrations and have noticed that Pamela Allen uses it in lots of her illustrations.
Which texture gave you the best result?
