Our lovely preps have reached 100 Days of School! We enjoyed a special assembly on Friday celebrating all the learning and hard work they have been doing in their first 100 Days!
We started our assembly by singing some songs for everyone!
Then each student did a speech on what they have learnt and enjoyed in their first 100 days of school. Each student did such a fantastic job of speaking confidently! We are very proud!
Congratulations to all the preps on such a fantastic start to their school life!
In grade 1/2 students have been learning all about money. At the moment they have been exploring the connection between dollars and cents, and thinking about the change they will receive for purchasing different items.
For this activity students needed to demonstrate their understanding of how many cents make up one dollar. They used coins to try and make their “magic number” as many ways as possible. Students had magic numbers that ranged from 100c – 3000c.
Check out some of the great work they did below!Read More »
Grade 3/4 students completed an explanation text as part of the term’s integrated topic. Students learned about the relationship between the sun, moon and earth. This helped them to explain seasons, shadows, night and day. They used a range of technical vocabulary including axis, tilt, rotation, revolve, equinox and solstice. The photos show some of the resulting explanation texts and an experiment focusing on shadows.Read More »
Over the past two weeks, grade one and two students have been learning all about multiplication. They all understand that multiplication is a repetition of equal sized groups, and that these groups can be organised in different ways. For this activity, students were given a magic number and had to investigate how many different multiplication equations they could make that equalled their magic number. Some students used unifix blocks to help them. Here are some photos of 1/2 D hard at work last Friday.Read More »
Grade 1 & 2 are learning all about things which grow this term. As part of this unit, students planted sunflower seeds and have been observing their changes closely. Last week we decided to replant the seeds into our garden beds because they were getting too big for their seedling trays. Here you can see some of the students out in the garden, carefully choosing ideal places for the sunflowers (with plenty of sunlight, and protected from strong winds). Everyone had a great time!Read More »
All the Preps went on a fantastic excursion to SCIENCEWORKS!
As part of our ‘On The Move’ topic, we went along to further our understanding of:
- Forces, such as push and pull
- Toys, and how they move.
We enjoyed a special presentation of ‘The Toys & Forces Show’, presented by a very funny education officer who works at Scienceworks.
We then explored the ‘Ground Up’ exhibition, followed by the playground (after eating our lunch). Then we visited ‘Sportsworks’ and ‘Think Ahead’ exhibits.
Here are some photos:Read More »
During Education week, we held our annual Open Morning and Open Evening for prospective families in 2019 and beyond.
All teachers were on board during the evening, presenting and talking to parents about all that Belle Vue has to offer.
We spoke about the many wonderful programs in place at our school, and we hope to welcome these families into the Belle Vue community.
Thanks to all the staff for the work they put into their presentations, and the families that came along.
It was a wonderful representation of what Belle Vue has to offer.Read More »
Ms Woodhouse, Mr Robinson and some very lucky Belle Vue students went to visit the children and staff at Manningham Rd Early Learning Centre.
We ran a music session with the kinder students and talked to them about what school will be like next year.
We took some very excited junior school students who used to attend Manningham Rd when they were in kinder. They were extremely excited to see their old teachers!
We hope to see some of the children next year in Prep.
Thanks to staff and students at Manningham Rd ELC for having us!Read More »
During week 3 our Prep students were learning all about measuring capacity!
We discussed terms such as ‘full’, ’empty’ and ‘half empty’ and practiced measuring the capacity of a range of containers.
We predicted the capacity of containers, ordering them from least to most, then checked to see if we were right!
We used water, sand, rice and pasta! It was lots of fun!Read More »
As part of the grade 1/2 integrated unit ‘Watch it Grow’ students examined a range of different seeds. They learnt that seeds have all of the information required to grow an adult plant and that seeds can vary in terms of shape, size, colour and even location on a plant. For this activity students had to look at a range of seeds, draw a labelled diagram of the seed and predict the plant, tree or fruit that the seed came from. On this page are some pictures of the students hard at work being seed scientists – it was a very exciting activity!Read More »
