Story Writing

We are learning to write... and what amazing writers we are!

We are learning to draw a detailed picture.
We are learning to write the sounds that we hear.

Here are 3 samples of our fabulous writing that show our learning.

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday - Our first week!

We have had a fantastic first week in the All Stars. What great learners we are! We have been learning to point to each word as we read it and have been drawing pictures that match our story writing. We have been counting and learning to write some numbers to 10. Today we even used Mr Hundreds Board to count to 100!

 On Tuesday we went to see 'The Lorax' at the movies. Here is some of our 'quick thinking' after the movie.
Our favourite parts of the movie were...
...when the Baba-loot was in the fridge eating all the food!
...when the Baba-loot fell off the bed onto the floor. It was funny!
...when the Baba-loots put the Once-ler’s bed into the river.
...when all the marshmallows were given out by the Once-ler.

Why did the Once-ler chop down the first tree?
He wanted to make a thneed.

How do you think the Lorax was feeling when the Once-ler chopped down the first tree?
The Lorax said “Why did you chop that tree down?” He was angry and sad because he wanted to keep the tree safe.

What happened to the animals when all of the trees got cut down?
All of the fish, and the teddies and the birds had to leave. The birds couldn’t live in the trees anymore. The baba-loots ate the fruit from the trees and all the fruit was gone. Also... we liked going on the bus!

Today we had Discovery Time. It was great fun to be creative and work together with our friends! Here are a few photos of us.

Welcome to the All Stars

Welcome to the 'All Stars'; we are all stars in here! We are a brand new class of 5 year olds who are very excited about the next stage of our learning journey. In Weeks 9 and 10 we had our first school visits to give us a little taste of 'school life'. We are looking forward to getting started in Term 2. Check out our blog posts as we get under way over the next term and our class fills up with all of our 'All Stars' friends. We will be posting on our blog to show samples of our learning and let you see some snippets of the fantastic activities we are doing. We hope you will comment on our posts and give us feedback as often as you can.
