After recess the village was in full swing and boy was it good to see. The learning taking place was phenomenal. Students engaged in provocations that sparked curiosity, creativity and collaboration. We were treated to a puppet show, a ballet concert and iMovie premieres! students created a seating plan for the audience and devised a ticketing system that was welcoming of all. Students used laptops to find guided drawing tutorials where many great character were created. Some students used perseverance to solve some difficult puzzles and as always the home corner was a hit for many as another Village cafe was formed. Others used the time to refine their letter formations as they chose to write about the CLARA learning powers and character strengths. The block corner, Lego and play dough were also very popular areas of exploration throughout investigations.


After lunch we headed to the Centre to participate in our weekly Gross Motor Skills circuit. Today our focus was on throwing and catching. Students displayed a growth mindset as they were challenged with various activities using our Adelaide Strikers balls.


The day was concluded with prayer, where today’s assistants shared the following reflections:
