Next we Tom the farmer and he took us to feed the hens and chickens. After that we brushed the cow and felt how warm the milk from a cow is. Later we went stinky compost yard and fed the pigs they were dirty. Then we saw the worm farm. Next we fed the horses and ponies. Next we fed the sheep there was so much poop in the paddock. After that we fed the goats they were soft. Later on we went to the bee centre. I saw a queen bee or maybe it was a wasp. Six people were allowed. Finally it was lunch time I was starving I ate a wrap it was delicious. While we were eating Miss Hannett went to steal a sheep or as she says it borrow it. Anyway after we went to the vegie garden and saw vegie plants. Next we jumped on the bus and back to school and played on the playground and finally we went home.

On Thursday 4th August, St Joseph’s held it mini Olympic Day. Our class choose Greece as our country. In the opening ceremony we went first to take the flag to the front. This is because Greece was the first ever country to hold the Olympics. Other flags which were in the flag ceremony were France, Ireland, Vietnam, Qatar, Canada and many more. Next was the torch relay and Ben was the lucky one to be chosen for this.

After the opening ceremony the 5/6’s organised some sporting activities. We played number soccer, egg and spoon races, bean bag throw and tunnel ball. It was so much fun!

In the afternoon was the closing ceremony. What a wonderful day we had. The Olympic flag was passed onto Japan where the games will be held in four years time.

Year 1 /2 HM will be participating in a Visible Learning Project about learning intentions in the Reading Block. Please as part of this project, we ask the parents to ask the children what they learnt in reading, to see if they can tell you what they are learning NOT what they did. Please feel free to post a comment such as: ” my son learnt in reading today………” This would be very helpful for the project.

Term One Assembly


This Friday 11th March is 1 /2HM’s assembly. Here is our class recount we wrote when RACV Education came to visit.

On Wednesday 17th February, Nicole from the RACV came to our school.

We learnt that you must wear a helmet when riding a bike or scooter.

Nicole told us if we are too small for a seat belt, we need a booster seat.

We also learnt how to be a pedestrian.

To be a good pedestrian you walk when you see the green man.


Nicole put down on the ground a road made of felt.

Then she asked eight children to cross the road.

Miss Moloney and Nicole pretended to be the cars and the motorbikes.

We looked to the left, we looked to the right and we looked to the left again.

Next we played a game called “lolly-pop man”.

One whistle means stop.

Two whistles mean go.

At the end Miss Moloney and Nicole flipped up pictures to find our learning.

Thanks Nicole from RACV for visiting us!! We learnt so much about “keeping ourselves safe!”
