Our Special Visitor RB

How would you describe RB?

Learning about the ANZACs

This video clip shows you what the learners in hub 5 & 6 have been doing in order to build their knowledge about the ANZACs. 

We hope you enjoy it.

Parents Getting Involved!

Hi everyone,

What a lovely surprise to come in this morning to see so many parent comments on the blog.  The kids feel a great sense of achievement and motivation when they see that people are publicly taking an interest in what they're doing so thank you for your support!

Some of you have noticed that the email blog updates haven't been working.  I've removed the email box (to the right hand side) and have re-installed it, so if you go ahead and enter your email address again you'll get those handy update right to your inbox.

Also please ensure you're signed up to the Google+ Group as posts like this one (directed at parents, not about student learning) will end up in that group in the future.  It's designed to be a space where teachers and parents can all connect, share tips and messages, ask questions etc.

I'll be in the hub this afternoon, so if you're not sure how to get into the group come by and tap me on the shoulder before the end of the day (or after the bell if that suits) and I'll help get you up and running.

Thanks so much,

Practising our list words with word finds and chalk

We are practising looking for our list words in word find puzzles, looking through each line from left to right.  Another great way of practising them is drawing with chalk outside. We have put some of them up on our word wall, so we have another place to look if we get stuck.

reading provocation -'Max Saves a Frog' and how can we be friendly to frogs.

We have to keep the frogs safe, because they are very special animal. No other animals can be like a frog and they are the most beautiful animal and they are funny frogs. Divesh We are making a picture for where the frogs need to live. If we don't do this then the frogs won't be able to live here in our school. Emma
We read a book and we want the frogs to be safe with us. We need water shade and soil. We are doing a picture plan and design to help keep the frogs safe at Stonefields school. Alvyn We need to try and save our frogs. Frogs are special because they can eat flies and mosquitoes, bugs and they  live under the ground. We are trying to make our ideas to be a pond for frogs in the school. Harrison
We are learning, how to take care of frogs, because we need to put them in a pond. They need water to lay their eggs in. They are special animals because they eat bugs. Eden
