Tomorrow is our assembly, it will be great to see lots of parents. We are encouraging students to wear sports uniform as we are very active on stage.
We have continued our Literacy rotations this week. Some have been challenging with students giving Scattegories a go. Nothing like a bit of time pressure when you are trying to brainstorm words !
In Library this week we are reading The Feather by Margaret Wild and Freya Blackwood. A unique book that offered several perspectives for students to explore.
Here are some of their reflections:
Vince: Maybe the feather only comes when it is winter
Sarah: Maybe its like when you catch a butterfly and you have to let it
Destiny: the feather might be a symbol of hope
Mahi: the feather is like a cloud
Rachel: a symbol
Jackob: the colour was first of all white and Nico and Maria treated it with kindness like it was a real person
Grace: When the others came they wanted to touch the feather, and make choices about it.
Jashandeep: The people wanted to keep it in the dark
Asher: the feather got all dirty so that no one wanted it anymore
Angelina: When the feather was dirty and brown the people said you brang it here now take it away
Ai: The feather became white and fluffy again because Nico and Maria cared about it
Miriam: If you care and love something it will look beautiful and be happy
Destiny: Things can be loved for what they are not just how they look
Students have borrowed their reading books for this week and we strongly encourage them to read each night or morning to support their learning in class.
We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.
