Supporting Info Reports in R/1

This afternoon we visited R/1JM & R/1RV to work together on writing Animal Information Reports. This is a new type of writing for the students in reception/year one whereas we studied this genre last term. Title and Contents page were our focus today.

Our students are able to socially construct knowledge with the younger children and it is a wonderful experience to watch them learning and co-constructing togetherChildren are able to share their skills and expertise as well as develop responsibility, compassion and patience. 

We ended the day together moving our bodies and soaking up the Vitamin D on the oval! 

Thanks R/1JM,RV we hope to visit again soon 🙂

Holy Family Coffee!

As a provocation we asked the children to create labels for the Holy Family organic coffee that we will be selling to families.
The sales from the coffee will go into funding the future ‘Naturally Smart’ ecological project for our students next year.

We had some students using various programs on the laptop to design and others free-drawing 🙂
