Italian - Monday

We are learning to ask 'What is the weather like today?' and respond in Italian.


Question: Che tempo fa oggi? - What is the weather like today?


Watch this short video:  Weather in Italian 


Watch this video and repeat out loud:  Vocab with Ouino - The Weather


Task:  Divide your page in half. Write the question 'Che tempo fa oggi?' in both boxes and answer in Italian (choose a different answer for each question from the video). Draw what the day looks like.

Art - Tuesday                                       

This is an Australian indigenous dot painting. The artists used small dots, large dots and patterns of dots to make this lizard. Draw or paint an australian animal using only dots.

PE- Wednesday

Time for a bit of balloon fun! Your task this week is to play some “Balloon Volleyball.”

Using an inflated balloon as your ball, set up a “volley-balloon” net in a clear space in your home - hallways are pretty good.

(Note: If you weren’t able to get a balloon in preparation for this week’s task, please choose your favourite PE task from earlier this term, and repeat that.)

When it comes to making your “volley-balloon” net, feel free to get creative – use your imagination.

Items you could use include:

* String or wrapping ribbon attached from one point to another (tied, stuck with BluTac or tape); you could even use sticky tape as a net!

* If you choose to play “volley-balloon” on your knees, you could use 2 chairs with a towel, tablecloth, blanket or sheet hung across them.

 If you can’t find someone to be your opponent, try playing on your own, by tapping the balloon high over the string and then racing under the string to the other side, and tapping it back over (before it hits the ground!)


(Reminder: In “volley-balloon”, you can’t let the balloon hit the ground.

You can’t grab the balloon with both hands - you must tap it over the net with the tips of your fingers or your open hand.  No grabbing/catching of the balloon is allowed.)


*Playing on your knees (as suggested earlier)

*Playing with one hand behind your back

*Playing on one leg

*Lower the “net” and kick the balloon over the net


If you can can’t find anyone to join you, your task is to keep the balloon above your head by tapping it with your fingertips. Each time the balloon hits the ground, you have to do 10 push-ups! Time yourself and let me know how long you were able to keep the balloon up in the air.

ICT - Thursday  Week 7

What have you enjoyed about being at home during remote learning so far? What have you found challenging? You can use WORD, POWERPOINT, make a video of yourself, a poster with photos or use a drawing app to share your experiences. We think you’ve been amazing so far! This is an example of what you could do if you get stuck for ideas. Click INSERT which is the 3rd along the top of your WORD toolbar then press on table and decide how many cells/rows you want
