This morning the children were very engaged in their play-based learning. Today we reflected on our learning power, Miss Echidna (Belonging). During Investigations we focused on using our Creativity, Curiosity and Belonging learning powers while exploring our provocations.
During fitness we enjoyed playing the game traffic lights. We also had a came of cat and mouse and our cool down involved a series of stretches to bring our heart rate down.
After recess there was a whole school lock down practice. Sonny kindly reminded the children to display their bravery (character strength). R/1MC then went to library and R/1EN listed words that begin with the ‘qu’ sound. R/1EN then went to Spanish and R/1MC engaged in literacy investigations and worked diligently on their information texts.

After lunch R/1MC and R/1EN engaged in a moment of mindfulness. We then participated in some practical work with fractions using salada biscuits. Students explored the provocation, ‘how many halves (1/2) make a whole?’. Students also divided the salada into parts of a whole.
To end the day, R/1MC went to Spanish and R/1EN enjoyed SEL time with Miss Matthews.
