This is our big Tree of Awesome. It is for the awesome stuff we do at school. We are making because we don’t have enough room left on our Great Wall of Awesome.
To make it, first we had to make the tree, then we had to put bark and leaves on. We had to use lots of different paper to make the tree. We had to cut the leaves out and glue them on the tree.
The pictures on the leaves are of people, rainbows, horses, princesses, playgrounds, Darth Vader, Spiderman, smiley faces and some other stuff. Some leaves have words written on them. The leaves are all about getting along. Getting along is our You Can Do It key for this term.
When making our Tree we had to work together to get it done. To get along with each other we have to work together. We had to get along well while we working. While we were working, people were saying lots of encouraging things like “That’s really good,” and ”
“. We were reminded that saying nice things and being encouraging and supportive is an important part of getting along with each other.
What do you do to get along with people?
How do you show your artwork in your classroom?

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.

Today Malmsbury Primary School held an Olympic Day. Everyone in the school was asked to dress up in the colours of the Olympic rings – yellow, black, red, blue and green. There were some people who had gotten really dressed up and looked fantastic!
We spent the whole morning playing lots of different Olympic sports, like gymnastics, archery, weight-lifting, synchronised swimming and equestrian. Who would have thought that we could do synchronised swimming or equestrian events here at school? We don’t even have a pool or horses! Despite our apparent lack of equipment we were able to have a successful Olympic events day. We have really learnt a lot about using our imaginations, co-operation and working as a team and how to use sports equipment creatively.
The time we spent playing sports this morning will all go towards our PM Olympic Challenge scores. There are lots of kids in the school who are getting close to having enough points for a medal.
What was your favourite event of Malmsbury Primary School Olympics?
