Creativity and relating to others

Lots of children chose to visit America today and build a new and improved version of the Golden Gate Bridge. There was a great deal of oral language, negotiation, problem solving and explaining of ideas. The excitement at the awesomeness of there creation was inspiring! Some of our fabulous girls choose to persevere for the entire hour and a half on their project. Mia looked at the picture of the actual bridge as a basis of a plan and they even decided it wasn't a bridge without water around it! PROUD TEACHERS TODAY

Calendar Art

Here are a couple of samples of the gorgeous artwork LC4 have produced with Miss B for our calendars.  Please come and have a look at your child's!

Fire wise!

We were very lucky to have some fire fighters come and visit us at the end of our Firewise unit to reinforce all the important lessons we had on staying safe in a fire.

Sharing Time!

On a Thursday LC4 children are allowed to bring something to share.  Victoria brought her Halloween costume that she was going to wear for Trick or Treating and showed us her scariest face!  Sharing promotes oral language skills.  Children learn to... Speak clearly and confidently to others, listen carefully and ask good questions.

Financial literacy

When we decide to be super amazing at school we earn monster money. Once we save 5$ we can buy special rewards!  Max bought ipad time and Ashley bought dress up time with a special friend. She chose Sophia. Great effort and kindness guys. Mrs Harland is proud of you.

Zac has a new friend!

Practicing cutting. ..

We are learning to Manage Ourselves

We might look like we are just playing but we know we are practicing

- try even when it's hard
- never give up
- know what we needed to work on (which could be different to our friends)

Then we self assess and peer assess how we did against our goals.

We are learning about our learning!  How clever are we!

WALT try hard things and not give up.

We practiced lots of cutting today. Cutting is hard but we never have up!


Look at the concentration as we look for the 'i'  sounds and count them! Our persistence is getting better and better!  We have learnt that champions never give up!
