The Goats are in the Garden

Each week we read poems associated with our 'Letter of the Week'.
Last week we read 'The Goats are in the Garden', 
then we created colourful collages to go with the poem.

Tickets for Success

Five new paintings have been hung on the wall of Room 7.
They show different aspects of the 'Tickets for Success'.
Artworks were created by the juniors and painted by the Student Leaders
under the guidance of Mr Ray Stoddart (Art Advisor).

Abbie's picture was selected for for the Communicator ticket, and shows
a caring friend asking for help from the duty teacher for her friend who is upset.

Term 2

Welcome to Room 4 in Term 2.

Our major theme this term is 

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

We are learning how to reduce waste around our school by reusing it and recycling it.
We have learnt that we can do this by bringing our lunch to school 
in reusable containers, feeding our food scraps to Ajay's pigs 
and using some food wrappers to create artwork.
