Grade 1 - Term 3
What a fabulous and busy start to Term 3 we have had with lots of exciting events and activities.
This term we are focusing on Push and Pull.
Throughout Term 3 Grade 1's and 2's will be attending the Earth Ed Excursion, permission forms have been handed out.
Earth Ed Day
Last week we went to the Earth Ed centre. We learnt about forces such as push and pull and gravity. Students had the opportunity to play many mini games that relate to push and pull. It was a great day learning about different forces.
Students Recount of the day:
Yesterday Miss Lewis and Mrs Gloury took us on an excursion to Ballarat. When we got there we had a snack. Then we went inside and learnt about push, pull and gravity. The we playing with some toys and stuck the words push, pull or gravity onto the laminated paper. We had a challenge and had to make the marble go in the hole, using materials. I felt so excited because I had a great a day.
Yesterday we went to Ballarat. In Ballarat we went to Earth Ed. We learnt about push and full forces and gravity. We played tug o war and we lost. Then we played kahoot on the laptop. We went into a room and we had a sheet and we played with toys. Then we had lunch and watched a man in space. He had a cloth and it had water in it.

We have been doing lots of different STEAM activities.
Grade 1 students have worked in their classes to fix up the garden beds around the school. Students worked in teams to write letters, draw up plans for garden beds and explore what plants would suit the garden beds best. Students worked collaboratively and completed jobs for their families to receive donations. We are so proud of what the students achieved. Be sure to have a look a your child's class garden.
Students supplies are starting to run low. Please check with your child to make sure they have pencils, scissors etc. Please replace any items they don't have.
Don't forget to keep reading every night. Practice makes perfect!
