Congratulations to the Grade 1 students who ran their conferences yesterday! You should all be so proud of yourselves. Students used a proforma to assist them in how to run a conference and the iPads to share their favourite memories and learning. There were lots of smiles from family members, students and teachers 🙂
This morning Connor had a Skype call with a friend of Mr Lowne called Clayton who lives in London, England. He lives only 20 minutes walk from Buckingham Palace (who lives there?). Clayton is going to the Olympics and if we’re lucky will report back as our school’s Olympic correspondent in July.
Thanks Clayton for staying up until MIDNIGHT to talk to Connor and answer his questions.
It is coming up to the annual National Tree Day on Sunday 29th July. This is Planet Ark initiative to promote the importance of trees in our communities. Look at our trees that we made with Mr. Lyon today!
We will have a tree planting day at Wooranna on Sunday 29th July from 9am to 2pm to support National Tree Day.
Why do you think we need trees in our communities?
How many reasons can you think of?
How many trees do you have in your street or even in your backyard?
What type of trees are they?
The Grade 1’s were looking at the poem “A Child’s Plea…” (the author of the poem is unknown) during shared reading workshops. This poem has been in their reading logs since prep. We read the poem and discussed what learning is and what our learning looks like. They came up with so many “Wonderings” and “Discoveries” from reading the poem!
The biggest discovery was that they began to look at what they do during the day and began to identify what their learning.

“We played that memory game that is like a memory tray” – Jasmine
