We are about to be involved in a very exciting program!
This program is called the travelling scrapbook program, and Mrs Joyce has been kind enough to set us up with the program which sees us have a buddy classroom in Pakistan. We have so much exciting work to do making our global connections through the scrapbook.
To begin our journey, we are going to use Poplet on the iPads to do a brainstorm about ourselves. Our friends in Pakistan need to know who we are!
On your brainstorm you need to have:
– Your name
– Your age
– Your grade level
– Your favourite activity
And at least 1 of the following:
– How many people in your family (who they are)
– What your favourite movie and song is
– What you want be when you’re older
Prep/1F look at this!
Because summer is coming up I thought this would be a good picture to look at and discuss.
My questions for you:
– Why are there so many people in the water together?
– Where do you think they are? (In a pool? The beach?)
– What would you be feeling and thinking if you were in that water?
Here in Prep/1F we are extremly friendly, happy young people who like to meet new friends. But we need to remember a few things when we meet someone new – especially when we aren’t around any adults. Today we are going to discuss some things about ‘strangers’ and how to stay safe out in the yard. We will begin by talking about what a stranger is.
It’s always best to stay safe!
During the September school holidays Miss Ferguson, Mrs Joyce and Miss Joyce took off on a big plane and headed over to India. We went to a school in a town called Sonepat. The school was called Rishikul Vidyapeeth and it was amazing. It was such a big school, made up of 4 campuses. The campus we stayed at was made up of 5000 students, 1300 of which boarded there.
Students at the school go to classes Monday – Saturday. A bit different to us here at Liddiard Road! They don’t have air conditioners in their classrooms, and many classes don’t have internet. But the students are extremly excited to learn, very respectful and energetic – just like you guys!
Here are some photos for you to look at of Miss Ferguson’s journey to India.
One of the hallways in the junior wing.
Some students showing us their science experiments.
The is the courtyard of the primary wing. Look how tall the building is!
Look at some of the Australian animals they drew!
This is where the prep students went when they needed a break from their learning.
I will post many more photos of my trip to India, but for now I have a job for you.
Complete a venn diagram comparing Rishikul Vidyapeeth to Liddiard Road Primary School. You will need to use your schema and infer for this task.
Meet Google Boy.
He is 5 years and 8 months old (that’s nearly 6 years old). That’s just like many of you in Prep/1f. This boy has got an extraordinary talent.
My questions for you:
1. What do you think his talent is?
2. How do you think he feels being up on stage in front of so many people? Why?
3. What year do you think he is in at school?
