What are the chances

We have learned so much about chance in the last few weeks and looked at the chance of things that will happen, wont happen and might happen.

We investigated the likelihood of rolling certain numbers on our game board using 2 6 sided dice. Each player put a counter on the number they thought they would most likely roll. We discovered that the chance of rolling some numbers over others were higher, such as 7, 8 and 9 because there were more combinations to roll these numbers.



Basketball clinics

We had a great time at basketball clinics a few weeks ago!

We were able to practice our skills of passing and bouncing the ball to eachother, we also played game where we were challenged to dribble the ball from one end to the court to other without getting stopped.

We had such great fun learning these skills.


Badminton Clinics

On Thursday, we played badminton with Raymond.

We practiced hitting the shuttle and tried to beat our highest score of 12! It was very hard to try and beat this!

We really enjoyed hitting the shuttle and rallying one another.

Grade 1C

Koalas Information reports

Last week we started writing our own information reports because we have been learning all about Australian animals and we know lots about koalas.

First we began reseaching information about Koalas using books, using weblinks and sheets of information as well as our knowledge. Then we found relevant information about our subheading and recorded the information in our own words. We have looked at things such as their habitat, diet and movement.

We cant wait to continue to research information and include it into our information reports!

Melbourne Zoo

On Thursday grade 1’s went to the Melbourne Zoo! Can you believe it?

The first thing we did once we got off the bus was have our snack to have energy to explore the zoo. Then we saw the platypuses in their habitat while they were swimming in the water. Next we saw the beautiful butterflies, some of us were lucky to have them land on us!

After that we saw the tall giraffes eating the leaves on the trees. We got to see lots of amazing Australian animals such as the kangaroos, koalas, emus, wombats, kookaburras, rainbow lorikeets and Tasmanian Devils.

Finally we went to see the reptile house and saw crocodiles, pythons and turtles.

We had such a fantastic day out!!

What is the length of our Australian animal?

During Maths this week, we have been measuring the length of our own creations of Australian animals! We also looked at comparing the length of our animals and looking at the difference sizes. We used unifix to measure the length of the Australian animals and made sure they were lined up on a base line.







Superhero Day

On Friday we had the chance to be super heros for a day! We had such a great time showing off our super hero powers AND raising money for a good cause “The Starlight Foundation”

Have a look at what we dressed up as!

From the superheros of grade 1C!


ANZAC DAY Puppet show

On Wednesday the 3rd of May, grade 1s watched a puppet show on the “Messenger dogs from world war 1”.

We met the messenger dogs Nell, Trick and Bullet and they told us tales of the frontline working  alongside the Australian Imperial Force along with their courage, determination and endurance.

We saw how the dogs carried messages from the front line back to headquarters and how they looked after their owners. These dogs had such an important role!
