Today J10 and J11 were busy sorting lots of words focusing on the similarities and differences between them. We found words that started or ended with the same sound, words that had the same blend and words that had the same short vowel sound in the middle. Great work everyone!!!
In J10 & J11 we have been focusing on using capital letters and full stops correctly in our writing. Penny Punctuation is a part of our VCOP program and is proud of the students who use it correctly. These students received their level 1 awards today. Congratulations.
Literacy, numeracy and technology! Books on the whiteboard, books on the computers and iPads and paper books. Goldilocks and the 3 quilts in maths and some great patterned quilts were made.
Today J1 and J2 welcomed Emi to our room. Emi shared lots of information about Indonesia and its culture with the students. She even cooked Nasi Goreng ( fried rice) and Mie Goreng (noodles) for us to taste. Terima Kasih Emi!
We had lots of fun celebrating Mother’s Day in our room. The children gave their mums hand massages, painted their nails, made special biscuits and had lots of cuddles. A special day.
The juniors are loving having the opportunity on Thursday lunchtimes to participate in a range of gymnastics activities. They are working on strength, balance, coordination and more! 2 students are selected from each class, each week and so far it has been very popular.
Each we we have new focus words to help with our spelling, reading and writing. Today we did playdoh, paint, whiteboards and letters! Such great hands on learning!
What a fantastic morning we had today!!! We had so many special Mums, Nannas, Aunties and friends come along and get pampered in the junior rooms. We had nail polish, massage station, biscuit making and lots of other fun activities!!! Thanks so much for coming and to all of the special ladies, we hope you have a fantastic day on Sunday and are very spoilt!!
