You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
Welcome to our site for 2018. I am looking forward to the year ahead! Tomorrow we get to begin a new year together, meeting challenges, working with different people and having some fun while doing so.
Week 1 fun
What a first week we have had. Team 3 is a great bunch of children and they are enjoying getting to know one another. We have got swimming every day and love being in the pool. Lucky for us Swim Magic are providing water safety lessons. Thanks to the HSS fundraising Committee we didn't have to pay for them.
We have also been working with Room 2 designing tents. This has been a fun challenge.
We are busy getting to know everyone in our class through our unit "Know me before you teach me". The kids all brainstormed things that people could see or already know about themselves around the outside and then the things that aren't so obvious on the inside.
We then did a piece of writing using some of these words... a few examples can be seen below...
Wrinkles that spread across my face as I smile
Happy with friends
High messy bun
Worried about disasters
Caring for everyone
Daughter, mother, sister, wife and friend
I am Tarnia
Know Me Better!
Sick of McDonald's Bludger's
My eyes are glowing in the night people always notice
I'm pacinet about playing all sports
Pass me a ball and I will shoot It
The new basketball hoop
Today a massive crane lifted the new basketball hoop into place. It was a little bit exciting. After lunch we went out and gave it a test run!
I think it's fair to say this hoop will be used often!
