Excitement Plus

The last few days in Grade 1 have been full of exciting things. Yesterday we had a Fairy Tale Dress Up Day to finish our unit of work on fairy tales. We saw lots of princesses, pirates, wolves and fairies. After our parade in the courtyard we rotated through some different fairy tale activities. We made crowns with Miss Hunichen, fairy bread with Mrs Morris and sang songs with Mrs Ward. We all had a fabulous time and are looking forward to footy colours day on Friday.


The excitement didn’t stop there because on Thursday morning we had Alphashows come out to our school to perform the story of Aladdin. We couldn’t wait to see how they were going to make the story come to life. When we got there, there was lots of music playing and we were able to dance for a little bit before the show started. The show had lots of funny jokes, people playing great characters. We all enjoyed the show very much, some of our favourite parts were:

– When Ashkar told Jafar that he needed to get some deoderant because he smells. Amelia

– When Aladdin and Jasmine went flying on the magic carpet. Tess

– How the genie granted Aladdin his three wishes. Edward

– Seeing the characters do funny things like falling down ladders. Jamie

– When Jasmine and Aladdin kissed. Grace H

– When Jafar and Aladdin were sword fighting. Alannah

– When the genie was being silly and he bumped into the set and hurt his nose. Cody

– When Ashkar made a joke about Jafar weeting his pants. Fletcher

– When Aladdin freed the genie. Fintan

– When we were able to get up and dance and hi five the actors. Jack

– When the genie was trying to get Aladdin to tell Jasmine the truth. Jessie

– When Abu was making funny faces and when he jumped on Aladdin’s back. Emma

– When the characters kept using different funny voices. Jarrod

School Pride Day

What a great day we had last Friday the 14th of September and our gardens and school now look amazing. The Grade 1’s worked hard to lay softfall under the play equipment outside the Grade 1/2 rooms and laid newspaper and mulch for the circle gardens. We achieved so much and would like to thank all the parents that turned up to help. This day wouldn’t be possible without the organisation from Ms Preaudet, Phil Barnett and the fabulous sustainability committee. Click on the following link to view the slideshow.

It’s a Girl!!!!!!

Grade 1B and 1C were very sad to say goodbye to Mrs Hollands earlier in the term. Mrs Hollands left us to begin her maternity leave. She was due to have her little girl on the 15th of September, however the class was buzzing with excitement on Monday morning as they read that Mrs Hollands had actually had her baby on the Sunday (9th of September).

Allira Rose Hollands

Born – 9th September 2012 at 3:11pm

Weighing – 6 pounds and 6 ounces

Mrs Hollands and her precious daughter are both doing very well and Mr Hollands is very excited to finally have a daughter to cuddle. Miss Hunichen was extremely excited on Monday afternoon as she got to go and visit Mrs Hollands and Allira. She took cards and posters that we had made during the day and Mrs Hollands was very pleased to receive them.


Busy Busy Busy!

The last few weeks have been very busy in the Grade 1 classrooms, we have had so much happening but so little time to blog about it all!

A few weeks ago Grade 1B finally got to make Gingerbread Men after watching Grade 1A and Grade 1C have their turns in the weeks prior. The children were very excited and really enjoyed working together to follow the recipe. We were very lucky to have such wonderful parent helpers on the morning who took small groups and also helped clean up. Thank you to Sadie, Richard, Dave, Sarah and Michael.

You can have a look at our finished Gingerbread in the slideshow below
