Religious Education and Curriculum News

From our Year 2’s

In class, we completed activities at different Prayer Stations as we have been learning about Prayer. In Religion, we learned that Jesus taught his followers to talk to God every day to share their thoughts, feelings, and worries. People can pray alone, with others at any time and in any place.

Our Prayer Stations helped us to understand that we can pray in different ways and for different intentions.



From our Music Specialist

The junior primary music classes have been learning how to read, play and notate the beat and simple rhythm and melodic patterns of selected classroom songs.  During Harmony week students explored music from Irish, Ukrainian and Noongar cultures.

The students in Years 3 – 6 have been exploring new rhythm and pitch elements using iPad apps for rhythmic dictation and note naming. They have practised these concepts in drumming activities and performance tasks using keyboards, guitars and marimbas.

We all eagerly await the opportunity to commence choir rehearsals which have been suspended temporarily due to COVID restrictions.
