Posting comments, tips for students and parents

Today in class we are learning how to post a comment on a blog.  (*Note to parents, we are using this post in class, so things may sound a bit obvious, but please read on and feel free to take on the activity too!  We'll be walking through the steps together, maybe you could try it together at home too.)

Comments are a great way to communicate with authors and the community who use the blog.  By leaving a comment you can ask a question, or share your thoughts on what has been written.  This is great if you'd like a bit more information, or if you are unsure of something.

Lets Go Fly a Kite

As part of Harmony day we held a kite flying extravaganza this morning!  All the houses competed together in a show of solidarity and understanding, with all students helping to build, fly and untangle over 170 kites.

Some 1/2 students have written about their morning below and we have captured plenty of the action on camera too!

WANTED... Have you seen these bad guys?

This week we have been invaded by some shady characters in grade 1/2.  These criminals have been lurking a'round' and we really need to get them back into shape!

We're not sure which 'side' you'll be on, but we really hope they turn a 'corner', because these shape characters have just been a little misunderstood.  That's all about to change now that we're onto them and investigating all things shape related.

Some of the students have been on the look out and to help us identify these rogue shapes have created some wanted posters to bring justice to all, fair and 'square'!

When we are 100

With Grandparents Day just behind us we have been thinking about what it would be like to be an old person.  Not just a grand parent but what would it be like to be 100?  We thought long and hard about what it would be like and what we would be like too.

First we thought about what we might look like.  Would we have grey hair? Be bald? Glasses?  Hmmm, there was quiet a lot to think about once we got started.
