A reflection of our week – 17 June 2013

It has been a very busy week in the Prep-One room.  Here are some reflections on our week…

In our writing we have been planning a story book.  This makes some of us feel happy because we like writing.  Some of us are excited to make a book because now we now know how to tell a story we can tell lots more.

We finished our heart maps, which most of us really enjoyed making.   They show what we love.  We are going to put these on the Great Wall of Awesome and use them to get ideas for our writing.

Molly, Rosie and Natalie have been selling rocks this week.  Some people put on funny shows to get more people to buy rocks.  All the money goes to the Parent’s Club and the guide Dogs.  They raised a huge $44!

In Art we have been painting without paintbrushes.  We have been using palette knives, pipettes and drinking straws and things from nature.  It has been fun and exciting because we didn’t know we could paint without paintbrushes.  Most of us love painting with a palette knife.  We feel very creative.

In French we have been talking about to say ‘hello’ goodbye’ and ‘how are you feeling?’ in French.  We are also learning how to introduce ourselves and where we live.  French makes us excited because it is really fun.

Almost all the All-Stars really enjoyed this week.

What did you enjoy most this week at school?

Tell us one thing you are really proud of achieving this week.

French Day Fun!!!

On Thursday the 19th September our whole school had a special French Day.  Everyone was encouraged to dress up in French-themed clothes, there was a lot of rouge, blanc et bleu!  We did lots of different French activities and we all had a great morning.  Here is what the Grade Prep/Ones had to stay about French Day:

Today was French Day. I liked that when you had to make your own badge wit hthe red, while and blue.

We got to wear French colours.  Some people are wearing blue, red and white.

Some people won prizes. The prizes were for best puppets.  The prize was a French ribbon and a chocolate frog.

We made puppets. Some people did shows with their puppets in the assembly area.  We used the new puppet theatre. It has blue and red curtains and it is painted red and blue. It has got the French colours on it.

Some people got to do performances with the puppet theatre.

At assembly each house group walked around in a circle showing off their French colours.

We made little bags with pepper and herbs. These are called bouquet garni.

We liked French Day because we got to do French and Performing Arts at the same time.

French was very good and we did lots of things. We watched a movie.   We had special Fench pancakes called crepes.

We played petanque. How you play is someone throws a snitch and other people have to throw these other big metal balls. Whoever gets closest to the snitch gets to throw the snitch for the next game.

French was really fun because we got to make our own puppets.

We love French Day!!

Thankyou Madame Sam, we had a great time!
