Godly Play.

 

During our Devotions and Christian Ed studies our prep children have been learning about the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. To assist their learning of this Bible story the children have created a Garden of Eden in the classroom. Together they have been rein acting the story using many different animals in a beautiful garden setting. This time of play has given the children the opportunity to use their oral language skills and develop their ability to retell a story; this inturn assists their comprehension skills.

       

 

Dramatic Play.

 

With the arrival of Turbo the Turtle into our classroom this week, a visit from Lewie the Lizard and the many animals in the Garden of Eden ‘Animals everywhere’ has become a bit of a theme in our prep classroom. so much so we have set up a Vet Clinic in the dramatic play area. This dramatic play area has helped the children learn how to care for and help sick animals. Through collaboration the children have shared the opportunity to be either the Vet, Vet Nurse, Receptionist or the owner of a sick animal.  Dramatic play gives the children the opportunity to use their imaginations while developing their social and oral language skills.

           

 

Animal Sculptures.

 

Studying the physical characteristics of different animals has given the children the opportunity to learn more about the similarities and differences animals have. After understanding the different characteristics the children used their fine motor skills to mould and manipulate play dough and create the animal they have been studying.

The Year 7 History curriculum begins with thinking about how artefacts can reveal the past.  Using the ‘Building Learning Power’ dispositions of Questioning, Noticing and Revising, students hypothesise and draw conclusions about items from a “Mystery Shoebox”.  Each student brought in a shoebox containing items which relate somehow to their life:  a dog lead, a football jersey, some paintbrushes, a souvenir.  Students have fun connecting these mystery items to draw a picture of the person who may own the box.  The idea is not to come to a firm conclusion about who the owner is (that’s a bonus!), but to reason and make connections, to question previous ideas.  It is a noisy, fun, interactive activity.

What a blessing it is to share and discuss our love of music with the students of Prep T! Over the last few weeks, we have been exploring music and sound through instrumental playing, action songs, story time, call and response games, the ‘Secret Sound’, dance, and the early stages of improvisation.

In addition to this, students have also participated in group singing sessions on Tuesday afternoons with our visiting voice and instrumental teacher, Mrs. Kirstin Camm-Bartle.

We have started rehearsing for the Prep T Band’s debut performance at the Official Opening of the Surf Coast Campus – no doubt it will be a joyous occasion and a perfect opportunity to celebrate our fellowship with music!

If you missed the Partnering with Parents Evening, you missed hearing the heartbeat of Middle School and why the educators we entrust our kids to each week are excited about 21st century education, some of the challenges they face, some of their goals for our kids, and about the community they seek to foster within Middle School. You also missed seeing Mr Kehler shooting some hoops!

It is clear that the aim of Christian College is to strengthen and shape students' character—who they are—as much as to increase their knowledge and capacity to learn.

It was lovely to observe students excited to introduce parents to their teachers—and to observe staff who were accessible and who were enthusiastically engaged with families.

With the Winter Olympics underway, commentators and athletes alike are searching for "the perfect run" or "the perfect score". Will this educational journey through Middle School be perfect? Of course not. After all, our parenting isn't. However, with quality tools and materials and with collaboration and community and care for our 21st century learners, we are confident that our kids can experience an education that will equip them to navigate the challenges and opportunities awaiting them.

Lunch time on Thursday at Surf Coast was  slightly different to our normal routine.

The Prep's enjoyed eating their lunch inside our newly completed Tee-Pee.

The light steaming through the colored windows of the tee-pee made a wonderful glow inside.

This experience was thoroughly enjoyed by them all.

This term, Year 7 Drama students are learning about the importance of body language and physicality in performance. Through the medium of neutral mask, they have been challenged to create interesting and entertaining theatre work without the help of voice or facial expression. This has led to a wealth of comic characters and engaging scenarios – and it’s only Week 4! Next, students will tackle the art of Basel Mask before moving onto Clowning for their final assessment. It has been wonderful to watch these students – new and old – come together in the classroom to create and perform and I look forward to seeing what they come up with next.
