The Malmsbury Mind Cup versus the Kids

Melbourne has the race that stops the nation – the Melbourne Cup.
Soccer has the game that keeps the whole world up late – the World Cup.
Malmsbury Primary has the event that pits great thinkers against each other – the Malmsbury Mind Cup.

On Friday November 9th, the whole school gathered to compete in the first annual Malmsbury Mind Cup. Students challenged each other in chess, checkers, naughts and crosses and One, two! In our class we also played Chinese Checkers, Paddocks and giant Snakes and Ladders. Here is what Grade Prep/One had to say about the day…

It was fun doing the Malmsbury Cup because we got to play the big Snakes and Ladders game. I liked playing the biggest Snakes and Ladders in the whole world.
I liked the big Snakes and Ladders because you got a dice to play with.
We liked Checkers because it was a fun game. Noah and Brandan played together, it was the first time we played. Eliza and I played Checkers and I won the third and Eliza won the third game.
I think Checkers is the best game in the whole wide world.
I liked playing Pick Up Sticks because it was really fun picking up the sticks and trying not to move the other sticks.
I think it was fun playing Paddocks with Rosie because it was lots of fun. It was fun when we counted the Paddocks to see how many we had.
I think kids were playing board games well.
I liked the Malmsbury Mind Cup because it was fun.
I liked playing games with Brodie. We played Snakes and Ladders.
PLaying Paddocks was fun because you can make up lots of paddocks.
Chinese Checkers is the best game in the whole wide world because I love it.
I liked losing every single game.
The Malmsbury Mind Cup was fun because we got to play lots of games.

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!

New faces in Grade Prep/One

This term there have been some new faces floating around the grade Prep/One class. Our three new buddies have recently moved to Malmsbury  from the inner city and have really enjoyed the warm welcome they have received.

 

Gordon, Ben and Boo have already enjoyed visiting most of the Grade Prep/One kids and are really looking forward to visiting the rest of the grade.

Which of the three buddies is your favourite?

What kind of life do you think Gordon, Ben and Boo might have lived before they came to Malmsbury?
