The Village had their specialist lessons today – Music, Sport and Spanish.
As classes we reflected on our Saint Vincent De Paul house and what can do during Lent to give to those that need it most.
Who is St Vincent de Paul?

1 EN made a bus today their provocation was to have 10 people on their bus through different provocations
Jacob: We are plussing and trying to make the number 10 by plussing.
Dimi: A way you can make 10 is five plus five.
Videl: 3 and 7 make 10.
Jacob: 7 plus 3 make 10.
Sonny 5 plus 5 make 10.
Poppiest: 1 plus 9 make 10.
Vidal: 10 plus 0 make 10.
Nickolas: 8 plus 2 is 10.
Cooper: 5 plus 5.
Sonny: 4 plus 6 make 10.
We nearly got to make all the ways in which you can make 10!
After Recess we continued with our investigations. The students led their learning setting up provocations they wanted to play and explore with. They all supported each other and work together. It was interesting to see more and more students join in with different explorations.
The Village particapted in Writers Workshop- before the students go off we always have a mini lesson on book making.
Today’s focus was “What a book needs and features of a text?”
It was great to see the students lead this learning, sharing their ideas and knowledge and then having a go as “Authors”.
Angie: It needs a front cover.
Sonny: It needs a picture and a title and who its from
Emily: page numbers in the book.
Dimi: Some writing and some drawing, you can get a sound chart to help you.
Jacob: It needs a blurb at the back it tells us all about the story,
The students are really enjoying being authors and we look forward too many more books being made.
At the end of the day we reflected on our CLARA learning powers….
Al: I used Mr Koala to build a bike.
Sahib: I used Mr Koala to make a spaceship.
Sara: I used Mr Koala I use some paper and some drawing.
Nickolas: I used Mr Koala for picking up with Copper.
James: I used Mr Koala for making a restaurant.
