Thursday, week 1

Diwali Assembly

Library

We shared this beautiful book today about a seagull. It reminded us of another book we read not so long ago about a bird that got caught up in a plastic bag.

Kai: There was lots of rubbish on the beach.

Abbey: Rubbish makes the beach look yucky.

Nathan:  The problem of the story was that the seagull was caught in fishing line.

Luka: The solution to the story was a kid saw the seagull and helped it by taking the line away.

Literacy

Aarshia: Diwali

Seanna: Christmas

Christian: Easter

Kayla: Birthdays
