‘Music Count Us In’ song

Every year we learn the ‘Music Count Us In’ song, which was created by selected students from different states of Australia and recorded by students under the guidance of the Program Ambassador John Foreman. Foundations, Year 1s and 2s have been practising the song ‘We Are’ in preparation for Thursday 7th November at 12.30 when thousands of students around Australia will be performing the same song at the same time.

For more information please go to the link: https://musicaustralia.org.au/program/countusin/

We have our own moves to the song but the students enjoyed attempting sign language (Auslan version), which can be seen on YouTube.

Foundation Excursion To LegoLand!

On Friday the 6th of September our Foundation students made their way to the LegoLand discovery centre at Chadstone. After arriving at the colossal shopping centre, students enjoyed their snack on the mezzanine outside LegoLand. Once we were refuelled it was GO GO GO GO GO! Students made connections to our inquiry topic of the weather and seasonal change by constructing multiple seasonal settings in the learning centre. After the brick building, students accompanied their design with a matching story and shared it with their peers. Other activities on the day were exploring the Lego city of Melbourne,  watching a 4D movie, multiple interactive rides, burning off excess energy in the play centre and lots and lots of lego building. We would like to thank our fantastic parent helpers, perfect pre-service teachers and of course all 5 foundation classes who consistently modelled outstanding behaviour and represented Greenvale Primary with pride.

At recess, the House Captains ran some fun footy related activities for our junior students, and before the end of the day our school got together to parade our Footy Colours.
