Narrative Writing


Posted by mariabell | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on March 20, 2018

Jacqueline Harvey, Morris Gleitzman, Mem Fox and students of Grade 1D, L and G. These are just a few of Australia’s most talented authors!

We love creative writing in Grade 1 and have been very busy planning, writing and editing our own stories with inspiration from some our most favourite writers. We have learnt all about using lots of adjectives to describe our characters and setting to create imagery, coming up with some juicy problems and solutions, and using sizzling starts to keep our audience wanting more!

Here is a fun link you can use at home, to help your little authors come up with some amazing stories!

Happy writing!

Take an amazing look at the Grade One Place Value Monsters! ROAR they are very intelligent!!!

Throughout Term 1 all students have enjoyed working with numbers, ranging from 2-4 digits and developing a strengthened knowledge of Place Value.

Take a close look at what they have learnt:

– How to represent the number using MAB.

– Explain the value of each digit.

Ride2School Day


Posted by mariabell | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on March 16, 2018

Bell PS will once again be participating in Ride2School Day on Friday 23rd of March. 

Ride2School is a nationwide program delivered by Bicycle Network, designed to support schools to encourage, empower and enable more students to get physically active on their journey to school.  It provides an opportunity for students, parents and teachers to try riding, walking, skating or scooting to school as well as celebrating the regular walkers and riders.

On this day, riding and walking to school is made normal and the entire school community can support it. It is a chance to celebrate on a large scale and to prove it can be done. 

The event will be organised and run by Junior School Council. Stay tuned for further information.
