Stage 2 Sorry Day and Australian Commemorations
This term Stage 2 have been exploring commemorations and celebrations in our library lessons. This week we read ‘Sorry Day’ by Coral Vass and Dub Leffler as it was the week of this important Australian commemoration. Stage 2 students then researched other important celebrations. Mrs Luke was very impressed with what wonderful researchers Stage 2 are becoming and their thoughtful and empathetic comments about these special days on the Australian calendar.
National Simultaneous Storytime
In Week 5, Prep to Stage 1 enjoyed taking part in National Simultaneous Storytime. This year the story was ‘Whitney and Britney Chicken Divas’ written by Lucinda Gifford and yes it was all about two chicken’s who love to sing. Each class took part across the week first celebrating with an introduction from Funky Chicken and Mrs Luke who showed students how to make crazy chicken hats. Students wearing their chicken hats enjoyed hearing the story read by Emma from the Wiggles on Storybox Library. Finally we finished off the celebration with a whole class chicken dance. Our students really know how to have fun!
