Today’s environmentalists were Brian and Nathan. We measured how much rain fell today in a rain meter we placed outside.
We just checked it and it measured just 14mm. We thought it would fill up but it didn’t.

This is the Communication Space during our Grade 1 Learning Agreement. Look at how engaged they are in their learning!
What I see:
* they are staying in their space.
* they are looking at their learning.
* they are helping each other.
What I hear:
* they are asking each other questions.
* they are talking about what they are doing.
* they are using a volume that is not disrupting other spaces.

On Wednesday 3rd May 2012, the grade 1’s had their assembly to share their learning with Wooranna Park Primary School. They used Skype to portray real time news broadcasting. In workshops, students have been looking at different forms of sharing news – news reporters, newspapers and the blog. It is an opportunity to develop their public speaking and presenting skills.

It’s really important to think about things before we either say them or do them. To demonstrate, we got a piece of paper and discussed situations that leave another person hurt or angry- and we scrunched up our paper. When we tried to smooth it out, we couldn’t – there was still the marks of where the paper had been scrunched. We thought about ways that we could help each other in our community to help other peoples “paper” to get smoothed out…
If people doesn’t know how to write something I can help them – Nyamal
If someone hurts I’ll take care of them – Broadie
I’ll listen – Rhema
Walk inside to be safe – Connor
I can tap people to help them to listen – Ian
Sharing – Brian
Today some grade 1 students visited the grade 2 unit – check out their learning!
Thank you to Miss Smithett, Mrs Ross and Miss Brighton for having us 🙂
Today we talked about the question “have you filled your jar today?”
We all come to school with an imaginary jar. Every time someone does a good deed to help us or show us kindness, a magical bean is placed in our jar. When we help another or show some one else kindness, a magical bean is placed in their jar. But if we hurt someone else or waste others learning time, we remove a magical bean from their jar.
We have a grade 1 community jar- when we see a strong, helpful or kind choice being made by a grade 1 a magical bean goes in the jar. I wonder how many we will have at the end of the day?
