Hello parents and families
Over these school holidays, the students have a data collection task, which will be used in a maths project when we get back to school in Term 2.
Students need to collect data for fourteen days (the length of the school holidays) based on the time they went to sleep each night.
They can record their data however they wish (a table, a tally, a frequency table, etc).
But they do need to have recorded 14 times that they went to bed.
Please support them in collecting this data.
As we mentioned previously, we have been writing procedural texts.
This week, we went one further and wrote an absurd procedural text - a step by step guide about something completely ridiculous.
And was our writing ridiculous!
Some titles included
*How to stop your lunchbox attacking you
*How to eat yourself
*How to disappear
*How to save the world
Here are some photos of our work.
Our writing focus for the past few weeks has been writing procedural texts. We've analysed the structure of procedural texts, making sure our writing reflects the same structure.
We've also conducted a couple of science experiments, and recorded them as procedures.
Here are some photos of our two procedural texts in action - How to make a volcano erupt and How to make Oobleck.
This term we've been exploring Local Government.
We have been working our way through a Multiple Intelligence and Bloom's Taxonomy activity matrix, demonstrating our preferred learning styles and what we have learned.
Some activities we have completed are:
- designing a flag for Moreland
- creating a poster advertising Moreland as a tourist destination
- listing the advantages and disadvantages of living in Moreland
- writing and performing a song about living in Moreland
- writing and performing a puppet show, with local characters
(Below are some photos of two puppet shows so far)

We're onto procedural writing now, but here are some Indigenous creation narratives we wrote a few weeks back.
We've decided to add a few photos of the various events since the beginning of the year.
Camp / Footy Clinic / Buddies / Crazy Hair Day / Maths
What a ride it’s been since we began school, much more than a month ago now.
We’ve had a footy clinic with players from Carlton and Pascoe Vale women’s team; we’ve been on a glorious camp; we’ve been participating in LifeSkills sessions; we’ve met our Foundation Buddies for the year; and most importantly, we’ve been learning.
We’ve been so busy that we haven’t had a chance to update you on any or all of it (other than at home).
Here’s our timetable for this term
