There was colour and laughter today at Rosanna as students explored the themes of our Fish Philosophy. The themes of 'Choose Your Attitude', 'Play', 'Being There' and 'Make Their Day' are strategies that remind us to approach life with positive choices. In conversations with students and discussions about behaviour our Fish Philosophy is often referred to as a guide to the choices we make. Please take the time to discuss with students their leanings throughout the day.

Next Wednesday 20th July students will join across the school in multiage groups to explore the themes of our Fish Philosophy. The central themes are 'Make Their Day', 'Play', 'Be There' and 'Choose Your Attitude'. These understandings underpin the ways in which we discuss relationships and approach learning at Rosanna Primary. To find out more about the Fish Philosophy visit our Fish Philosophy Page.
Students are encouraged to dress in one colour of the rainbow. They may choose red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo or violet. Another great option is to wear the school uniform of red and yellow! We hope to gather students after lunch to take a whole school photo.
Students enjoyed discussing the events of holiday adventures as they returned to school yesterday. Many were thrilled with a new adventure as a juvenile possum climbed from a tree in the top playground and feasted on some eucalypt leaves. It was a great celebration of being back and a reminder of the suprising learning experiences all around us.
Who knows what is around the Term 3 corner!
Our Italian Day celebrated the richness of Italian culture. Students dressed as spaghetti, there were numerous Mario's and even a pizza table! Students gathered again in multiage groups throughout the school. Each group decorated masks, lay on the floor and drew on the bottom of tables recreating Michelangelo's experiences, and even recreated Pinocchio. Later in the day students laughed and enjoyed a performance and feasted on gelati. A special thanks to our senora for her coordination of the day.
Our classrooms continued to celebrate learning as parents visited classrooms in the afternoon. There was cutting and creating in the Prep rooms, calculations of lunch orders in the 3/4 area and a mini rich task in the 5/6 area. Parents enjoined learning lots themselves as some watched and others dived into learning side by side with their children.
It was a great reminder that learning is indeed a life long experience. Thanks everyone for joining in on this week of learning.
There was laughter, furrowed brows, smiles and lots of discussion around numbers today. Students participated in multiage groups to play lots of games highlighting a range of maths concepts. It was great to see and hear older students breaking down addition concepts and explaining mathematical ideas to other students. everyone enjoyed the games as well as the collaborative spirit that saw everyone learning together.
Thanks to our Maths team for organising this unique learning experience and preparing for the sessions.
