We had an entertaining performance of The Little Mermaid today!
The story was one that we all knew but it was such a great experience for us all having live entertainment with real actors! The costumes were colourful, the music was loud and I really liked the way the actors asked the audience questions to keep us engaged! It was a mesmerising performance!
What did you enjoy most about the performance?
Today we were lucky to have Gerrard Cafe from School Performance Tours come to our school. He told us stories about Australian history and folklore. He explained to us that these things have shaped our identity. Many students were able to go up onto the stage and participate. There was a didgeridoo, sheep shearing and lager phones to make up a bush band.
We learnt about Bush Rangers and some students got to put a tucker bag and billy on the swagman as quickly as they could!
Gerrard told us about Australian heroes including the Anzacs, lifesavers, firefighters, farmers and sportspeople. This complemented this weeks character strength focus on courage. Heroes are people who have believed in themselves and had the courage to reach their goals often when faced with adversity. They are people who others look up to and admire.
Gerrard sang songs and read some poetry. He was really funny, we laughed a lot but we also learnt a lot!

Today we are looking forward to welcoming our parents into our classroom!
We have filled a jar full of baby blocks and invite parents to estimate how many blocks are in the jar!
How many blocks do you think are in the jar?
It’s the last day of term 1 and everyone forgot to get dressed when they woke up this morning! I can’t work out what is going on!?

This afternoon we did some Easter activities and some of 3A performed an Easter themed play. They performed with gusto and humour. Their expression and wonderful acting skills made us all laugh!
