What a beautiful day! We had perfect weather, well behaved children, fabulous parent helpers and an amazing Aboriginal guide. We all learnt so much from Trent today.

Here are a few photos of our day…….

Thanks so much to the parents of GJ, EC, AR and JH for helping with supervision, toilet duties and most importantly a coffee run. 🙂

Excursion tomorrow!!

We will be leaving school at 9am and are not able to wait for latecomers. We will be returning by the end of the school day. So children will need to bring recess, lunch and a water bottle, in their own small, NAMED backpack. Your child will be carrying  their own supplies.

 Please dress your child, in school uniform, for the weather on the day. A hat is required and please ensure that they have their sunscreen put on at home prior to coming to school. If needed send along roll on sunscreen to reapply, as we are outside all day.

Writing – We have had the opportunity to do some free choice writing to demonstrate our skills. Mrs Hedger has done some more poetry writing with us too. In Literacy Rotations, we have read some poetry and recorded it onto the ipads.

History – We have heard another dreaming story and retold it in our own words and dot paintings. See photos on the blog. We looked at some old photos of CLG PS and talked about how some things have stayed the same and some things are now different. Please help your child prepare for their oral presentation.

Health – We have been talking about keeping ourselves safe and how to identify our body’s Early Warning Signs.

Digital Technology – We paired up and wrote a code for the Beebots. See photos on the blog.
