Working Together

This week, these boys have been writing a scientific report on the food web. We have followed a structure and made sure we included all of the information that we needed. Our writing is very technical and explains some complex relationships. Here we are helping each other in the editing and proof reading part of the writing process.

Halcombe vs Mt Biggs

Thanks for coming to play us Mt Biggs! It was a great game!

Successful Swimming Sports

Well done to Annabel who took out the Junior Girls Swimming Champ. You swam so well and focussed in your races! Also, well done to Abbie and Jock for coming third! Room 4 is very proud of you!

Well done to Caleb as well. He received the cup for the most improved swimmer. Caleb has worked so hard during swimming lessons. He listens in the pool to how he can improve and works hard to make the improvements. Because of this, his swimming is going REALLY well!

Wonderful Wednesday!

Gosh we are having a great Wednesday! We are settled and working hard! Check us out during Literacy Time!
