Week 5 – Friday – Term 1


This morning we enjoyed an assembly presented by 5/6 ND and 5/6 NB. It was a fantastic presentation of learning, showcasing the many artistic talents of the students from dance to animation. The assembly centred around the theme of the bushfires and how from a tragedy new life grows and strength comes.

Play Investigations

Before we moved into play investigations we talked about the Clara learning powers and how we use these during our play.

We will talk in more detail about each learning power over the next few weeks and introduce a Beanie Boo which represents that power.

After our play we drew a reflections of our learning and thoughts about what learning power we might be using.

Before lunch our buddies came back to play games with us.

Game time with Buddies

At the end of the day we talked as a class about ‘Safe Hands’. There has been a few incidents in the yard during recess and lunch, so I thought it was time to revisit this thinking about ‘safe hands’. As a general rule we have a No Touch policy at school. But we talked about asking our friends first before ‘safe touch’ which is things like – fist pump, high five or shaking hands.

We drew our hand on a big piece of paper and wrote our names. Then we talked about safe and unsafe hands. For the photo – it was hands in and ‘Go Team’.



Have a lovely weekend and I will see you on Monday.
