Creative and Critical Inquirers


Stage 1 have been working hard throughout Term 1 in Geography. We worked in teams to redesign Billa Road Oval for the community. 

First we needed to be creative and come up with our own ideas for the oval. Then we discussed our ideas in our teams. We needed to think critically so we could work out which ideas we should include in our design and which ideas we needed to discard. Each team had to present their final designs. 

Here are some photos of Stage 1 working in their teams.






We have also been critical inquirers in Maths.
We went on a Shape Hunt and had to read clues carefully so that we could work out what shape we needed. Our teachers were very creative in where they put the clues.
