Hello everyone! I hope we all had a wonderful Seollal break! This week was very short, but still filled with lots of fun learning activities. On a more serious note: Phones are now banned from the classroom as they are being used at the wrong time. If your child needs to take their phone to school then they must put on my desk each day and they will get back at the end of the day.
In English, we continued non-fiction work with a focus on leaflets. The students looked at persuasive techniques and made a plan ready to create a leaflet next week.
In History, we are coming towards the end of our work around the American Revolution, the children looked at the declaration of independence. The students needed to update the declaration of independence and discuss its impact.
On Friday afternoon we Years 2-9 had a trip to the HHI Art Gallery, this was a great experience. The students were able to see different artists work on display and a guide was able to explain each particular artist and their style.
I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
