What an incrediable experience we had as a team. On the 11th of September, we all got to perform I am Australian using Auslan. We were working hard behind the scenes to create a beautiful performance. Unfortunately, we have no images or videos from the day but please see below for the video that was played in the background for our performance!
This week, CLC students visited the children in PLC to share the picture story books we created during our Respectful Relationships sessions. The aim of this activity was to describe appropriate help seeking strategies that we can use when faced with a difficult situation. The preps enjoyed the stories and were able to retell the help seeking strategies!
The last few weeks in term 3 we have been focusing on division. We have learnt so many new vocabulary, such as; equally, shared, division, remainders and divisible. We were so lucky that our terrific teachers allowed us to share real life mentos! Have a look at us working hard!
This term students in CLC have been learning all about our CARE value empathy through our Mappen unit 'Someone Elses Shoes'. As part of learning about disability and inclusion, students participated in our Wheelchair Basketball incursion. Students had an amazing time participating in basketball drills and games and teachers were very impressed with students enthusiasm. Great work CLC!
During the holidays that just went by, our wonderful CLC teacher, Amy got married. Please have a look at how we celebrated her special day!
For our MAPPEN unit we are focusing on 'Someone Else's Shoes,' which allows us to imagine how we would feel and how we might act if we were them. To start our writing off students had to create their very own machine or item that they couldn't live without. Please see below our marvellous creations.
As a part of our integrated studies unit, ‘The Blue Marble’, students in Carome Learning Community explored endangered animals, their homes and the threats they face. To support their investigations, students participated in the Darebin Creek Education Program. This was an exciting opportunity that allowed students to connect with the local landscape, explore the plants and wild life living in and around the creek and brainstorm possible solutions to assist in maintaining a healthy environment.
We thoroughly enjoyed expanding our knowledge and understanding of the world around us.
During week 7, Carome Learning Community students presented their Conservation Campaign reports to Simon Learning Community students. CLC students wrote informative pieces about an endangered animal detailing the threats they face and what is being done to help them. SLC students were very engaged by showing great listening skills and CLC students showed fantastic presentation skills by using clear voices and eye contact. Well done all!
