Year 1 Excursion to Melbourne Museum

IMG_2316During Term 2 the Inquiry topic is ‘Lets Turn Back Time’.  Students have been learning how families differ from one another in their class and about the past, present and future.

On Tuesday the 3rd of May students visited the Melbourne Museum to support their learning further. Students participated in a class led by the staff at the Museum called ‘My Grandmother’s Toybox’. They were shown how toys have changed over time and had the opportunity to touch these toys including a very old Marngrook football that was made out of possum skin.

Students also had the chance to look at different animals, walk through an old Melbourne style home and saw large bone structures from whales and dinosaurs. The students had a fantastic day and learnt lots of interesting facts. Below are some photos of the excursion.

Happily Ever After!

During Term 4 our Inquiry topic is ‘Happily Ever After’. We will be studying lots of different Fairy Tales. On Tuesday the 13th October we had an exciting in-school activity by Carp Productions. This show explored Fairy Tales in a fun and interactive way, getting all the students involved in the story. Students learnt not only about the stories, but had an opportunity to experience performance for themselves. We all enjoyed the show, it was really funny!! Below are some photos, even some of our own students performing in the show!
