Blue Block International Picnic

Blue Block International Picnic

‘Around the Word’ Term 2 Celebration

To finalise our learning in Term 2 about different countries from around the world, Blue Block held an International Picnic. Students and staff dressed up in traditional clothing from France, Japan, Australia or India. After a successful ‘strut down the catwalk’, the feast began with foods from all 4 countries. Students enjoyed French ham and cheese croissants, Japanese sushi, traditional Aussie lamingtons and meat pies and a range of authentic food from India such as samosas and rice.
A special thank you to our special visitors and for all the parents who helped with the amazing costumes. Blue Block looked fantastic!!

Bonjour!

Bonjour!

Room 6 students have said sayonara to Japan and bonjour to France! One of first learning experiences was about the Eiffel Tower. Our Year 5\6 buddies helped us make models of the famous landmark, using mini marshmallows and toothpicks.

Children’s Day is held every May in Japan and carp kites or koinobori are flown to symbolise strength and courage. Room 6 students made their own koinobori using card, crayon, paint and tissue paper.

Chinese Zodiac

Chinese Zodiac

Room 6 students enjoyed reading The Race for the Chinese Zodiac by Grabrielle Wong. After working out which year they were born in, each student made a mask of their animal. Don’t they look great ?!

The Monster Nian

The Monster Nian

Do you know how Chinese New Year celebrations began? We watched a short movie about how the villagers learned to scare a monster away by banging drums, lighting firecrackers and decorating their houses with the colour red. We made our monster artworks and wrote the story of Chinese New Year. Don’t they look fantastic?

Book Week Dress Up

Book Week Dress Up

Wow! Everyone looked amazing in their costumes for Book Week dress up day today. We started the day with a parade in the undercover area. Blue Block students created puppets based on characters from the book Pig the Pug and learned about sharing and division in maths. After lunch, we voted for our favourite type of book – science fiction, fairytales, biographies, non-fiction, mystery or animal stories. We had such a fun day – thank you to all the families for creating such fantastic costumes.
