Just a reminder to all of our wonderful families that the Fraser Awesome Art show will be held tomorrow (Friday 13th September) and Saturday (14th September). We would love to see you all there to share in some of the incredible artworks produced by our students and teachers. We will also have a fantastic raffle and yummy BBQ running over both days. Look forward to seeing you then!

History - Canberra

The Dahls have begun learning all about the history of Canberra. We started with some learning about the indigenous people that lived and farmed in the Canberra region. As part of our learning we had a go at building a village using natural resources such as leaves, bark, sticks and clay.

What is something you have learnt about the history of Canberra?

Last week we had our Eco Ernie Earth Fair, where we got to share all of our amazing learning about the different Biomes of the world with all of the other classes at Fraser. We had written information reports, quiz questions, poems and made word searches to share.

Readers' Workshop, Creative Arts and Little Bits

Each week we have been continuing to focus on our personal reading goals by making our thinking visible during Readers' Workshops. We have been working on different strategies  to help make us better readers. Some of our strategies include using a BME, Topic-Subtopic-Detail, Chapter Ends... Stop!, Tic Tac Toe, Questioning Web, Uh Oh Phew!, Character Traits and Story Structure.

We have also been working hard during Visual Arts, on some amazing new artworks ready for the Amazing Art Show next term! Take a sneak peak...

You didn't really think we would show you our finished works of art, did you? 

Each of our classes also takes turns rotating through both tennis and Little Bits (Digital Technologies) lessons. Currently the Whoopsysplunkers are going out each week for tennis and the Mugglewumps are participating in Little Bits. This week the Mugglewumps used Little Bits modules to form an electronic circuit in order to create a Bubble Flute.

What reading strategy are you currently working on and how does it help make you a better reader?

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Excursion

On Wednesday this week, all of our Year 3/4 students in the Dahls, had the incredible opportunity to be able to travel to Sydney to view the musical, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at the Capital Theatre in Haymarket. We had an amazing time and it was an experience many of us will never forget! 

Some of our favourite parts included;

"When Mike Teavee was sent across the stage in millions of tiny pieces to the TV and came out shrunken" - Alex H

"When the Oompa Loompas came on stage and danced to the songs" - Ashlynn C

"All of it!" - Jacob C

"When the Oompa Loompas pranced around as each child was taken away" - Kate L

"When Violet Beauregarde ate the chewing gum, it was funny watching her blow up like a blueberry" - Ekkamneer J

"My favourite part was when the Oompa Loompas were tap dancing on the stage" Bailey V
