We all learn in different ways... here are Room 8 students taking part in the Alpha to Omega learning programme.

They are thoroughly enjoying the hands on hands-on approach to learning sounds and blends to assist them with their spelling. I am so proud of their enthusiasm to learning.

Food 

During our Learning to Learn unit, the children asked me if food has an affect on our learning. 

Impacts

Miss W use to be an Energizer so she was able to tell us about GO, GLOW and GROW foods that help our bodies

Learning

She was impressed with some of our lunch boxes. We were surprised that potato chips are a treat.


Water Safety Week

This week is water safety week for our room. We have created a wave in our school pool which saw water gush over each end the pool. Children were challenged to float on their backs while the waves went back and forth to feel what it would be like if we were stuck in the ocean. Yesterday was deep diving day where children were challenged to head to the bottom of the pool for many of the activities. We have made a lot of noise and had a lot of fun!

Making us Proud

Water confidence and swimming is so important when we live in a country that is  surrounded by water. Last week we were so proud of two of our classmates that made a new learning pathway in their brain. Maycie and Zach took their feet off the bottom of the pool and kicked across the pool with the help of a learning buddy. We are so proud of you. Special thanks to Brody and Jorja for helping Maycie and Zach make that pathway.
