Steam Train Trip

I went on a steam train with my cousin, my mum, my sister and my uncle. I got a sausage and donuts. When we got on the train we got seats on a big couch and there was a big table in front of us. Next to us was a shop. The shop had lots of lollies. We got to see the diesel engine and we got to drive the train it was really fun because the train is big and we are really small next to the train. Me and my cousin got to put the fire and rocks in and my sister drove the train with the driver and then we went to the very back of the train. It was like a prison but had lots of things in it. We saw daddy at skinny park he is a bit sick but he came to see us anyway. He had to stand there for a long time, finally we saw him. When we went outside I got lost because I was in a room and mum and my sister went one way and I went the other!! When I went back I found out that I lost my mum I went to the people that ran the place, then I saw mum and my sister. I went to them and said “I got lost” then we got back on the train. When we got backwe had a bbq at our house.

Minibeast incursion

What we saw and learned….

Snail. We were very gentle with snails.

Rainbow Scorpions have an exoskeleton. They glow under UV light and moonlight. It might help them see in the dark. They have venom in their food. They are hunters.

Centipede – the one we saw was a Rain Forest centipede. It’s a hunter. Its venom is in its front legs and he could hunt little mice.

Millipede – the one we saw was a Rain Forest millipede and is much bigger than other types.

There is a difference between poisonous (touch) and venomous (bite)!

Spiders : St. Andrew’s Cross Spider . It’s smart to look like a bee and that keeps her safe. This is called mimicry.

We also met a red back spider.

Huntsman spider – has very long legs and runs very fast.  If you are very gentle, you can touch them.  They only bite when they are scared.

Australian Tarantula.

Giant Burrowing Cockroach – it is native to Australia and only eats dried gum leaves. They are good mums!

Stick insect. We know she’s a girl because she’s got tiny little wings.

Rainbow Stag Beetle.  The males have horns and fight with other males, showing off to girl Rainbow Stag Beetles.

The male water bug raises the babies. They are good dads. They are good hunters. They have got really strong legs.

Our Buddies

In grade one, we have grade three buddies. My buddy’s name is  Isabella. She is really helpful and in some sessions we get to have free time with our buddies. We get to draw, read and stuff like that. Me and my buddie have lots of fun together. Some times we have to share. Some of the grade ones have two buddies. We have buddy time every Monday. And sometimes when our buddies are away we get to share each others. I love buddy time!!!!

What do you like about having a buddy?

From Xanthe in grade one.

Handwriting Practice

Grade One Parents,

Some students will receive sheets to practise their handwriting over the holidays or any time at their/your convenience. It will be more beneficial  if they have a grey lead pencil, sharpener and eraser available while practising. We are reminding students of correct pencil grip and starting letters in the correct spot and also not lifting the pencil if they don’t need to!

There is a great iphone/ ipad/ android app called “rEd writing” which really helps and includes the Victorian Modern Cursive Font.


Edel and Erica

Xanthe’s post

In our inquiry, we have been learning about interviewing. We have been watching some videos to help us learn more about interviewing. We have been learning about open and closed questions. An open question is a question that gives you more information from the person that you are interviewing, a closed question is a question that gives you one or two words for your answer. An open question is very important question because you learn more about the other person’s life. I interviewed my dad. Something I learnt about my dad is, his favourite holiday is Christmas because, we go up to Brisbane and gather up the family. I moved from Brisbane because my mum got her job here.
