Introducing Solo taxonomy

Welcome back everyone. I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are ready for our last term togehter. This term we will be learning about SOLO TAXONOMY. SOLO Taxonomy (Structure of Observed Learning Outcomes) is a model that describes levels of increasing complexity in our understanding of topics.

Using SOLO Taxonomy as a model, we become active participants in our own learning. We can follow the five steps to create new learning. It provides the scaffolding you need to self-assess your learning outcomes and what to do next.

Watch the clip below and tell me at what stage you are at with understaning SOLO TAXONOMY.

Book Week festivities

A few weeks ago St. Kevin’s celebrated book week. We dressed up as our favourite book characters.

Dr. Seuss says:
The more you read the more you know
The more the more you know
The more places you’ll go!

We love reading!

Creating Colours

1/2 KK are learning to be artists. We began by looking at primary and secondary colours. The primary colours are red, blue and yellow. Do you know what secondary colours are formed from our primary colours? 1/2 KK do! (hint: orange, green and purple).

Silly Science Incursion

On Thursday August the 8th, Grades 1/2 enjoyed a silly science incursion where they learnt how to be scientists. They had a variety of experiments. They looked at:

  • Magnets
  • Making slime
  • Optical Illusions
  • Leak-proof bag
  • Making rockets

Have a look at our future scientists!
