Another point of view

We have been learning to identify the point of view in texts and suggest other viewpoints. We discussed well known stories such as Little Red Riding Hood and identified whose point of view it was written from. Then we chose our favourite story and wrote it from another perspective. Check out our student blogs to find out the point of view of the wolf in The Three Little Pigs, the Giant’s point of view in Jack and the beanstalk, the fox’s point of view in The Gingerbread Man and many more. They will make you rethink what really happened!

Our Systems Learning Expo

This term we have been researching different systems. We have found out that A system is a set of interrelated parts that work together or combine to make a whole.

The system doesn’t work well if one part is not working.

Changes to one part of the system can affect the WHOLE system.

  • A system has structure, it contains parts are directly or indirectly related to each other;
  • A system has behaviour, it exhibits processes that fulfill its function or purpose;
  • A system has interconnectivity: the parts and processes are connected.

We all researched and explained a system of our choice – View the slide show to discover more

Our Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Concert!

A Night With the Stars!

On Friday the 1st of August the students of Holy Family put on one of the most incredible performances of the year. The adaptation of Peter Pan by the Junior grades and Mary Poppins by the Middle and Senior grades had critics calling it the stage show of a generation. As 2/3/4 students we were entrusted with some very important and significant roles in Mary Poppins. We had waiters, jockeys, hunters, chimney sweeps, a fox and Jane and Michael Banks amongst our very talented year level. We practiced really hard for months, and made sure we knew all our lines, dance moves, when to come on the stage and where to stand.
We arrived early dressed in our wonderful costumes, and had make up applied, even the boys! It was great, we felt like real stars. We waited backstage while the Junior School warmed and dazzled the audience. When we finally got our chance to perform, we walked onto the stage, found our spots and were greeted with a blinding light, rousing applause and smiles and hand waving from our families and friends. It all happened so quickly, and seemed to be over even quicker.
The entire school took the stage for the finale, we waved kites in the air and sang extra loud. Everyone seemed really happy and buzzing with excitement. I think we put on an amazing show. What do you think? What was your favourite part of the night? What was your favourite song from Mary Poppins?


What are we up to in Term 3?


Hawks in Schools Program

On Wednesday 11th June people from the Hawthorn Football club came to teach the year 3 students about healthy eating. We learnt that to be a Hawks player you need to eat healthy food and drinks. During the week we had to record any exercise we did, what we ate, how many glasses of water we drank and how many hours of sleep we had.

On Wednesday 18th June Angus Litherland showed us how to kick the football and do a handball. First we had to warm up to make sure we didn’t get injured when we were playing footy. We played lots of games that required us to use teamwork. We enjoyed playing footy with Angus.

Check out photos from the Hawks in Schools program below:
