From sounds and shapes to art and history

Students at Ettalong Public School have been involved in activities, ranging from sounds and shapes to art and history

"Stage 1 students have been learning about and creating games and toys from the decades gone by in history lessons," said principal Ms Lynn Balfour.

"There has been lots of writing of persuasive arguments on topics such as why older toys are better than newer toys and why outside games are better to play than inside ones.

"Mrs Fabri has passed on her love of sewing and weaving to 1F and 1/2P has loved listening to the Roald Dahl classic, Fantastic Mr Fox.

"3T have been learning about angles and lines this week.

"They investigated the differences between vertical, horizontal, parallel and perpendicular lines and were on the hunt to find angles all over our school.

"The whole class is becoming more confident in naming acute, obtuse and right angles."

She said the class enjoyed outdoor learning during mathematics and being active during "fun maths".

"Last week students from Kindergarten completed activities that were all about the sound 'ck'," Ms Balfour said.

"In mathematics we studied 2D shapes and we sorted them according to their properties. "We also had great fun doing the dance Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes."

She the Kindergarten class loved art and completed a Mondrian-style artwork using the primary colours.
