A busy week in Second Class

What an extraordinary week we have had with NAIDOC Week and Remembrance Day. Our History included an outdoor lesson with Miss Jackson and 2M. Miss Jackson shared with us her knowledge of Indigenous Languages, customs and a Welcome to Country book (by Aunty Joy Murphy and Lisa Kennedy).

We remembered those who had given their lives in wars on 11th November at 11 am. As a whole school we fell silent for one minute.

We engaged in experiments with Mr Sjoquest to discover the science of floating TOYS.

The children completed their advertisement for a toy using their skills to write persuasively, using emotive language and adjectives. They completed a self-assessment using a class created rubric, with criteria chosen by themselves.
