Number Jigsaws

This week, Miss Jennah’s & Kellie’s maths groups are working on identify patterns in numbers so they can recreate a number puzzle in the right order. Some of the number jigsaws included ordering two or three digit numbers and others involved skip counting. The students loved the challenge and enjoyed sharing their strategies.

Gardening Club

Category : Grade 1 & 2's

This term, our group of gardeners have worked hard weeding, water and planting seeds in our 1/2 courtyard. As a reward, we chopped up some of the apples from our tree and had a snack. The students thought the apples were “delicious, juicy, nice, healthy and scrumptious”.

The students have also put up posters on the doors to the 1/2 area asking for donations. If you are able to donate items like soil, seeds, gloves, straw and watering pots, they would be very grateful!

My eyelids slowly opened and I wondered where I was. It was like I was on a very big grass field, on a mountain with 3 animals.       By Saleem

There was a tiny city called the Lonely City and there lived an old lonely man called the Lonely Man. Everybody hated him. They hated him because he was mean to everyone and because he had no friends. He lived in a lonely house with no neighbours. “Oi,” said the man as the naughty pigeon knocked over his broken chimney.     By Zahra

I walked into my room and I was surprised nothing was wrong so I stood where I was and suddenly everything broke.     By Branko

using dialogue:

“Ahh,” shouted Indigo. “I’ve slept in and I hope they haven’t left without me to go to the village to sell the poems,” I cried. “They know I am the youngest child,” I whispered. “Why would they leave me,” I cry. I look around and all I can see is my teddy bear Indie, my wardrobe and Max’s remote control racing car. The room felt empty without my oldest sister Amy.     By Ella M.

“Food!” shouted the tropical fish. “I want food!” the tropical fish continued…

“Mum,” yelled Jess. “Where’s the hammock?” Jess asked. “In the backyard,” mum replied. “Thanks,” said Jess. So Jess put on some shoes as quickly as possible and ran out to the backyard and found the hammock and walked slowly to it. Then out of the corner of her eye she saw something glittering the sun.     By Khloe

“Wake up Lilo,” yelled Oliver. “Hmm, why do I have to wake up?” mumbled Lilo. “It’s your birthday Lilo” whispered Oliver.     By Ella R.

“Hey don’t touch that” I screamed to Luis.     By Otto

  “Come on worm, we’re under attack! It’s a super big 20cm blue wren!” “Is it trying to eat us?” asked worm. “Yes it is,” shouted Officer Beetle.     By Ben

“Sword cat, hold on!!!” shouted Arrow cat. She shot an arrow with a rope connected to it, into the air and they were flung in the air into the enemy base.     By Shant

 “Long live the King!” said everyone in the crowd. But unknowingly at this very moment the enemy was approaching.     By Theo

  “Go away,” shouted Dad. He hates birds eating his chips.     By Christian
