Monday 16th was a very dotty day, from dots on our clothes to dots in our art pieces. The book ‘The dot’ by Peter H. Reynolds which encourages its readers to exhibit the learner profile attributes of being caring, a risk-taker and open-minded to new experiences was the focus of the day and led to an activity based around aboriginal symbolic dot paintings. Take a look at the slides above to see how a few of these turned out. The students also brought in bottle caps so that these could be recycled into reusable products such as cups and trays.
Our work on diary writing is continuing with the students now learning about the impact famous diaries have had on the wider community. Diaries by Anne Frank, Robert Falcon Scott and Samuel Pepys have helped their readers to understand the time periods they were writing in and the conditions in which they lived.
In Maths we will be undertaking a short unit on prime numbers and powers of numbers before skipping onto time.
We have been so lucky! First we had Mr Tri last week to talk about his life as a child refugee and this week we had both Mr Darin(Brendan’s dad) and Ms Koong talking about their own experiences. All of this first hand information really helps the students to understand the real lives of many refugees.
