Year 1

This term in year 1 we have become very independent learners. We are learning to work at an appropriate learning space for extended periods of time. We are learning to complete our learning tasks within a set time frame. We have learned to read written instructions and to follow these instructions as we complete our independent work. We use many visual timers such as the online timer, a five-minute warning or a sand timer to help us to understand how much time we have left to complete our tasks.

We are looking forward to the year 1 Mass on Friday of 14th June. The whole class is very excited to have the opportunity to lead the school at this liturgical celebration. We are learning that there are special procedures that need to be followed. As a class, we are learning to respond appropriately during prayer time and how our body should look as we participate in the Mass. We hope that many year one families can come along to watch on this special occasion.

In Technology, we became ‘Lego Masters’.  We had a series of challenges that we had to complete with Lego.  It was a lot of fun and we were really pleased with our creations.

We love Japanese and we are learning a lot of interesting words.

Previously in Year 1:

In year one we have been very busy this term learning to follow instructions and understand the rules of the school. We have shown our teachers that we can show respect and care to others by listening to the speaker. We are learning to demonstrate whole body listening at all times.

In year one we have a 21st century classroom. We do not have a set desk. We share the room at all times and we learn to select a place that will suit our learning style.

This term in year 1 religion we have been learning about the liturgical seasons and we know that we are currently in the season of Lent. We changed our prayer table to reflect the season.

Each day we participate in a mindful activity. Our favourite activity to do is our drawing by following along to art hub for kids.
