Writing & Speaking

Our Lower 1st students were very proud to share some of their wonderful writing examples with me this week. We will look to celebrate this further in next week’s assembly with all of Infants. They have certainly come a long way in such a short time, and are rightfully proud of their progress. Thank you to those parents who have been in the position to help out in class with our younger students. It is greatly appreciated by our teachers and the children love having their parents visit. Keeping our fingers crossed for some sunshine next Friday for our annual Walkathon! Julian Wilcock Headmaster …
The children are all busy preparing for our annual Public Speaking Competition. This was held for the first time last year and we heard some excellent speeches from all classes from U1st up. This year is promising to be the same judging from all the hard work and preparation that is being put into it by the children. Each teacher chooses a topic related to a unit that the class has been studying, and the children then must write their own speech, which is delivered to the class. The benefits of this exercise are far reaching for the children. Writing the speech gives the children an opportunity to learn how to effectively convey their own ideas, and giving the …

Screen free day

So, Screen Free Day, I woke up, and ate brekkie, which was toast and milk, then I went to play badminton and ride my bicycle for a while. But we couldn’t play badminton because the weather was too windy. Later, I played board games with my Mum, ate lunch, & then she went to get the Pfizer Vaccine. When she was gone, my brother watched YouTube on the T.V. while I tried to catch an annoying lizard. I lifted up the planks and….Boom! The lizard stared at me. ❪☟○∧○☟❫ Then, it crawled/ran in front of the pool. I poked it, and it fell in. I nearly screamed, seriously. Then the lizard swam to the bottom and stayed there or …

Screen Free Day, plus a little bit of tv

I woke up with a start. I was going to login to my teams (as usual) but then I realized I got a break from screens, so I made my bed and got out my book to read. After a while I got up and went downstairs to have breakfast (I had some egg and toast). I went back upstairs and started to draw. I was drawing this beautiful, pink flower I was working on for a few days now. My brother called me downstairs and asked if I could come out and play AFL so that’s what we did. Now it was time for lunch me and my brother Andre went into our garden and started cooking some …

Screen Free Day recount by Isabella N

Yesterday was screen free day, I really enjoyed it. I started of my day with breakfast, we had avocado on toast, and it was delicious! Then I decided it was time to make a den. I used the couch as a base, then I took the bottom pillow off. Then everything else so that the couch was bare. Then I took a blanket and about 10 cushions from the couch and my bed. Finally, I created an entrance and a roof out of another slightly larger blanket balanced on dining chairs.   After I created my den, it was time for me to make my bed and get ready for the day. When I finished that I came back upstairs …
