    Redeveloping the ‘Butterfly Walk’

    Throughout the last term at Seacliff Primary, in my role as Environmental Intern, I’ve had the pleasure of working with a number of students from across the year levels on redeveloping the ‘Butterfly Walk’ on the eastern side of the school. Unfortunately, necessary tree removals and time had left the area looking rather run down.

    Room 16 – Shapes, Shapes, Shapes!

    During these past few weeks of term, Room 16 have been investigating shapes. We began with identifying and recognizing 2D shapes. We know 2D shapes are flat and have edges and corners. As an activity. we used pop-sticks or matchsticks to create the shapes we knew. We then labelled them with the shape name, number of sides and corners.

    Room 5 – Travelling ‘First Class’ Around the World

    In HASS, this term Room 5 have been focusing on Geography. The class has thoroughly enjoyed exploring their world and places that are significant to them. As part of this unit, we have been going on a class plane to travel around the world. We have a designated student pilot that chooses a country they would like to travel to. The pilot sits at the front of the plane and takes us to their desired country. We have recently flown to Mexico, Netherlands, England, and Australia.

    What’s the ‘matter’ in Room 2?

    In Room 2 we have been studying the Chemical Sciences this term. We have been learning to recognise and discuss how things have changed. This is so we can understand that some changes are reversible, and some changes are irreversible.
    We had a mysterious package delivered to our classroom. The packaged had a note that told us we needed to solve the mystery of what had happened.

    Room 2 – Bubble Trouble

    We have been learning Procedural Writing. This week we helped Mrs McPherson learn how to blow a bubble with giant bubble wands.

    We worked with a partner to write out each step. Then Mrs McPherson followed the steps. We worked out it was tricky, and we had to be really detailed in our information otherwise she didn’t know what to do!

    Room 4 – How long is it?

    The children in Room 4 have been measuring length using non-standard units.
    They know that whatever they choose to measure with, it must be the same size.
    They also know that their measuring units need to be placed right next to each other without leaving any gaps.
    The children enjoyed measuring many common classroom objects.

    Room 17 – NAIDOC Week

    The Year 3’s of Room 17 designed their own NAIDOC Week posters and wrote about what the NAIDOC theme, ‘Heal Country’ means to them.

    Cleve wrote:- “‘Heal Country’, to me, means that all other Australians need to understand and respect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their history. Their culture is very important”.
