This week Year 3 have been learning about Greek Myths. The Brilliant Bears worked on their acting and hot-seating of 'Theseus and the Minotaur' this week!

The Kind Koalas have had the opportunity to read and compare myths and locate language they would like to apply in their own written work, we then added this to our Vocabulary, Connectives, Openers & Punctuation (VCOP) wall.

In the Lovely Lemurs, as part of the start of our Myths and Legends topic in Literacy, we have been looking at some well-known Greek Myths.  We started off with ‘Theseus and the Minotaur’.  Using role play we acted out the story, with each group having a certain section.  This allowed us to further tap into the character’s emotions and imagine what body language they would use to show these.

The Outstanding Orangutans worked on their rhymes and also practiced hard on their handwriting.

In Year 4, the Pumas are getting creative and literate with the first draft of their very own ‘Myths and Legends’ stories in English lessons! We are looking forward to a variety of plots, mythical creatures and use of vocabulary to stir the imagination of the readers. 

Welcome to the Likeable Lynx DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) time with our Year 11 reading buddies! Every Monday, we get to share a book with the Year 11s and they help us to improve our reading skills. “We had so much fun sharing a funny story with the older kids- even they found it funny!” Sophie – Yr. 4.

In the Y4 Jolly Jaguar class, we are learning to be meteorologists! We are gathering weather data and using our Excel spreadsheet skills to present this information in a variety of ways!
