I hope you all had an enjoyable long weekend and managed to spend some time giving thought to the ANZAC soldiers who were so courageous 100 years ago.
This week we continue to learn about ANZAC dayand WW1 and will begin to do some report writing. We will be returning the class to 2015 though, living at school in 1915 was a fun experience but I feel we need to return to normality now.
It was great to see such enthusiasm last week for the chapter book challenge. I had some children inform me that they had finished their chapter book already (on the 2nd and 3rd day), I have had to re-emphasise the need for the chapter book to stretch our reading skills and the guideline is that a book should take 1 - 2 weeks to read. This is a fair guideline that ensures there is enough of a challenge for every child and caters for the range of different reading abilities. Please help to emphasise this at home.
Please note a few date changes that are different to my beginning of term email.
