Grade 1 Sleepover

Last night all the grade 1 students had a sleepover at school. We did lots of fun things. We had pizza and chips for dinner. We went for a night walk looking for animals. We had an icy pole and watched a movie, all before bed. In the morning we got up early and packed up our sleeping bags and got dressed. We ate breakfast while we finished watching the movie.

Today at school we made our own sandwiches for lunch. We had plenty of fruit and yummy treats to eat for our snacks.

Everyone had a wonderful time at the sleepover.

What was your favourite part of sleeping over?

Speech Writing

The past two weeks in 1J we have been focussing on writing and presenting a speech to the grade. To learn about giving speeches we watched Julia Gillard giving an acceptance speech and the Royal baby anncoucement. We have been focussing on body language, facial expressions, talking to the audience, giving eye contact, using appropriate volume and speed, reading from cue cards, active listening and interesting beginnings to speeches.

As part of the students weekly homework we resarched our parents or grandparents favourite toy. We used the information we had collected to write a speech and create a poster.

Today we presented our speech to the grade and we did a wonderful job.
