Carnaval coming to Aitken Creek!


During term 1 we leant about how Carnaval is celebrated across the Spanish-speaking world and worked very hard preparing to celebrate it in term 2!

We are proud that we are working across different subjects to make sure our school looks fantastic and we have great performances to showcase what we have learnt.

During week 2 there will be a number of performances during lunch times and the special event in on Thursday April 21! The whole school will meet at the gym during session 5, and parents are welcome to attend too!

Students can dress up on Thursday for the fiesta and dress up parade. Bring happy colourful clothes or costumes!


Thanks to Sirin and Tanya from 5C for their wonderful artwork for the poster.

This term is so much fun!

Preparing for Carnaval in year 3 we are making flags using calico material. Our flags present different colours, shapes and patters that represent the happiness of Carnaval. You will see them around the school and in our classrooms.

In year 4 we are designing colourful and creative costumes and dresses using different materials.


In year 4C we are putting together a recycled drumming band.

Currently putting together our final tunes getting inspired on this video. ¡Muy, muy bien, fenomenal!

Keep posted!

CLIL (Content and Language based Learning)

In Year 4B we are participating in a pilot program in which our teachers Miss Kirk (art) and Señor Garcia (Spanish) are teaching us together and we are using a lot of instructions in Spanish as we are making máscaras / masks using different materials and representing the 21 Spanish-speaking countries.
