I’m Australian too.
What do you notice about the full stop in this sentence from the book?
Alana – ‘you put your full stop when you finish a sentence.’
Oliver – ‘the full stop means you stop saying words.’
Elijah – ‘the full stop is when you see a full stop it makes you stop reading.’
Viraj – ‘the full stop means you are finished that sentences. you take a minute to breathe then you start reading the next sentence.’
Children were then invited to continue their book making. They were encouraged to use full stops at the end of their sentences.
Today we listened to and sung the Mass song, ‘Mary Says Yes’.
We then shared our prayers…

Keeping Safe Child Protection Curriculum
Today we read, What if Everybody Did That? By Ellen Javernick.
We paused each time the character did not make a positive choice. We discussed as a group what would happen if everybody made that choice and applied each scenario to our learning area.
Children recorded a list of good choices for our learning area.
