During Term 3 CLC enjoyed reading ‘Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing’. One of our reading responses asked students to create their own advertisement about a product of their choice. We are so proud of the wonderful results they produced. Go team CLC!
What a great day! Have a look at the fun and learning that was had by all on our excursion to CERES. Our visit to CERES was the culmination of a term of learning about Sustainability – CERES is an environmental education centre, community garden and urban farm that runs along the Merri Creek. We created a hotel for minibeasts that we brought back to Mernda Park, played games to show how loss of habitat can impact animal life and explored vegetation and animal life around the Merri Creek. Our Carome kids made us proud by sharing their extensive knowledge on this topic and amazing behaviour when they were out in the public. Great work CLC.
On Wednesday the 28th of April, the CLC students shared their projects from our Term 1 Mappen. There was an amazing buzz as students shared their hard work with their peers. Students explained what they made, how they made it and what they learned during the process.
The Grade 3s looked at First Contact between Aboriginal and European Settlers. We studied the different history, artefacts and cultural aspects such as games, food and languages. Students then worked in groups to research and create an artefact model.
Grade 2s Term 1 focus was all about what services are available in their community. They were able to identify their services, navigate a map and know who can help them in an emergency. With this knowledge, in groups, they became architects- designed their very own precinct and then built a mini version of their precinct within their groups. Once they were completed they were able to share their workings with other members of CLC.
Here are some photos of the Year 2s creating their projects!
See below for some photos for the expo in action!
