WORDS COME TO LIFE AT KILKIVAN
IN YEAR 1 and 2 this term Kilkivan students have been learning about poetry and have adapted the poem Six
Cuddly Kittens for their assessment. They learnt about how poems rhyme and use repetition.
They had fun changing and creating their own poetry and thinking about how the animal they chose might behave. Ten Snuggly Piglets
Ten snuggly piglets in an old, rusty crate,
Snorting and grunting on the old, cold slate.
Ten little piglets in mud with muddy paws,
Scraping and scratching with big sharp, rough claws.
Oinking and snorting for big mother pig, She’s stalking weird mice so crazily. Here she comes now with a very evil grin,
Here is dinner now, let it begin! — By Rachel McLean ( Year 2) Four Cuddly Puppies
Four cuddly puppies in a soft, cosy bed, Furry and fluffy and howling at red. Howling and rolling with long outstretched paws,
At the base of the bed sharpening claws.
Howling for mother dog where could she be? She’s stalking a grey cat so stealthily. Here she comes now with a satisfied grin,
“Ruff, ruff” she cries, let dinner begin! — By Erica Lewis ( Year 2) Six Cuddly Bears
Six cuddly bears in an old scratchy house, Furry and rough and hitting a mouse. Skulking and slinking with long deadly claws,
At the base of the house sharpening paws.
Longing for mother bear, where could she be?
She’s stalking a field cow so stealthily.
Here she comes now with a happy grin,
“Roar, roar” she cries, let dinner begin! — By Hunter Hill ( Year 1)
Sunday Creek Wilderness Hike
“Wow” is the first thing that comes to mind when I think about the hike from Sunday Creek ( Jimna) through the range and down into Booloumba Creek.
In 17 years of working with Education Queensland I have never seen students step up to such great heights and give their all to complete an activity like the Year 9 and 10 hike.
This was harder than expected and challenged our students in a variety of ways.
This was not just a three- day bush walk.
They had to carry all of their food, water, tents, cooking equipment and anything they required on the three- day hike. It was a challenge both physically and mentally and our Kilkivan State School students were incredible.
Congratulations to the students who undertook this challenge.
Your strength, patience, persistence, endurance and resilience was amazing.
Coding Sumo Wrestlers
TECHNOLOGY is changing at an incredible rate and at Kilkivan State School our students are learning as new innovations appear.
Whether it be creating digital games, creating in 3D or coding robots to do a variety of tasks.
Recently some Kilkivan State School students developed a robot to compete in a sumo wrestling challenge in Maryborough.
These students not only developed some fantastic coding skills but learnt to develop as a team and make changes to their robot in order to solve problems throughout the event.
