LITERACY

BRAIN FOOD

Eating “brain food” improves kids’ moods, elevates learning and concentration, and sharpens memory and attention.

The foods we feed our kids impact their brains in three ways:

• The brain’s cellular structure
• The wiring of neural circuits
• Production of myelin

What should I pack??

ANY fruits or vegetables are best!!

FITNESS

The importance of exercise

Don’t forget that as well as a healthy diet, exercise helps to keep our brains sharp. Research suggests that regular exercise improves cognitive function, slows down the mental aging process and helps us process information more effectively.

Group 1 worked with Mr. Coad and Mrs Tropeano on different focus sounds.

Group 2 had some focussed Writer’s Workshop writing time. They then worked with Mrs Tropeano and learnt 4 rules for when to use a capital letter. We then edited a piece of writing together, correcting the use of capital letters.

Group 3 worked with Miss Battifuoco on extending our knowledge surrounding grammar. Our focus today was verbs. Ruby told us that ‘verbs are doing words.’
