MACC Primary Disco


 

 

MACC knows how to have fun!

The Kindy block looked very welcoming as everyone came into see glittering lights and colourful decorations all waiting for a great time of disco dancing.

Everyone had a great time dancing! Lots of bopping around and big smiles.

Miss Woodcock gave out lots of prizes for great dancing. 

The Wii in the Chillout room proved very popular too, as an option to the dancing.

Mrs Harris and Miss MacGregor took lots of photos at the photo booth which will be given out as soon as they are printed off.

What did you enjoy the most about the Disco?

The Burnt Stick is a book written with that intention. The story is about an aboriginal boy called John Jagamarra who was taken from his family when he was 5 years old. He was taken by the Welfare man to live with the Fathers at Pearl Bay Mission for Aboriginal Children, to learn the ways of the white man.

The students in Stage 3 have been learning about how to write a personal response to a story. Personal responses come in many forms but always need to have a summary of the story and a personal response or opinion about it.

"My Country" Poetry Writing

Words can have an impact when we use them in ways that create images and evoke emotions.

They require creativity and thought about a subject, often using a limited amount of words to so.
Dorothea Mackellar is an Australian poet, who uses imagery in her poetry to great effect. They portray her love of her country by creating images of colour and ruggedness through a rich use of descriptive words. The most famous of her poems is called "My country", which the students then compared to another poem of hers called "Colours of the Light".


After completing the lessons on imagery from these poems, we came up with a definition and looked at the words that can evoke the 5 senses. 
To start the process of using imagery in our own writing, we brainstormed ideas for poems. This helps the process of pre-writing. Getting ideas written down assists the students' …
