LEARNING in Year 1

Our Year 1 students start off exploring the transdisciplinary theme of “How We Express Ourselves”. We explore the artwork of various famous artists, creating drawings, paintings and sculptures.

EXCURSION | National Gallery of Victoria & Chunky Move Dance Company

We have previously visited the Chunky Move Dance Company where students created their own dance, which was later performed at assembly for the whole school.

Afterwards students went to the National Gallery of Victoria to view an exhibition called “The Kaleidoscopic Turn” which explored the use of colour and shape in art and included a number of sculptures, including RGB by Anne-Marie May.

EXCURSION | Edendale Farm

Students enjoy a very exciting day learning more about minibeasts and their habitats at Edendale Farm. Through hands-on activities and experiences, students learn about environmental sustainability and the impact that humans can have on local habitats. Students explore the local dam in search of aquatic invertebrates and investigated the Eltham Copper butterfly, a threatened local species. Overall, it is a fantastic learning experience and a fun day.
