Today a few members of our class started using CS-First to help us learn more about coding using Scratch.  CS-First has videos and ideas to help us learn.

Because the Olympics are on in Rio at the moment, we chose the Sports Theme and created Victory dances.  That means we programmed our sprites to spin and jump up and down.

Our Big Day Out -Melbourne Museum

Last Friday our students spend their day at the Melbourne Museum as a part of our Inquiry into our  First People and  First Fleet arrivals.

Here are some thoughts and discoveries from our students.

Mia – ‘ I learned that today in Australia there are 240 languages spoken by Aborigines.’

Alyssa – ‘ I learned that the aboriginals who lived in Melbourne got a possum skin for each year of their life.’

Elva – I though it was an amazing trip and I discovered that ….

Mr. Crowe –  ‘ I found out that over 60,000 years this land we call Australia sustained the lives of around 1.5 billion people.’ 

Olivia – ‘I discovered that the aboriginals found and wore possum skins and they also wondered why the White people came to their country.’
