Ciao Italy Incursion!

Today Emilio from ‘Ciao Italy’ came to visit us!

Throughout the session we got to hear the story of Emilio’s Dad moving to Australia by ship during WW2.  Emilio showed some traditional Italian items, such as a pasta making machine, cafeteria (coffee machine) and the pasta sauce machine; these are just a few!

Once we had learnt about the traditional items, we had an opportunity to do some traditional dancing such as the Tarantella.  Visit our twitter to see us dancing!

Discuss with your family:

  • What was your favourite part of today?
  • What are some of the words you learnt today?
  • Can you teach someone the dances?
  • Does your family have any traditional items?

Happy end to Term 1

What a fun end to Term 1! Today the year 2 students treated Clare to a mock wedding just to get her ready for her big day coming up on the holidays. She happily married ‘Ian’ and sealed it with a high-5. There was a lovely reception to follow and we all toasted the happy couple with a lovely cup of cordial. Everyone had so much fun!
I’m sure you will all join us in wishing Clare and Ian all the best for their big day!

We wish everyone a safe and happy Easter and look forward to seeing you all after the holidays!

The Garden of Gethsemane

This week the Year 2 students have been immersed in learning about and exploring Holy Week.  Throughout this week the they have been focused on the events of Palm Sunday, the Last Supper and Holy Thursday.  Today they were able to apply their learning to construct art installations of The Garden of Gethsemane.  The Garden of Gethsemane is at the foot of the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem. The students have learnt that it is the place where Jesus went to pray and was arrested the night before His crucifixion.  Tomorrow the students will be focusing their learning on the events of Good Friday.
