Welcome to 2019 with the Cassowaries
We are slowly getting used to using our new bird names to refer to our classes.
We have had an enjoyable beginning to the school year. It has been lovely to meet the parents of the students who have joined our class this year and catch up with more familiar parents as you have popped you head in our room and also at the Parent Orientation Evening the other week. The students enjoy sharing their work with you and you are always welcome in our classroom to see your child’s work or have a chat about their progress. Emails also work really well, as they allow us to reply to you at a suitable time when we aren’t busy working with your child, but also allow both of the classroom teachers to be informed about issues concerning your child.
The students have been busy decorating their book covers with lovely artwork.
Our Earth Science focus in Cultural Studies is well underway and students will be communicating their understanding of this topic through the creation of websites in groups, integrating the Technologies curriculum with our Cultural Studies work. They are excited about developing their skills with this mode of presentation and have enjoyed critiquing websites to learn about the best way to present their work.
