Your school needs you! Vote now.

Hi all, over the past two weeks we have been working hard on creating our own political parties. These have to include: a leader, campaign slogan, party logo, at least 5 members, a statement for what they stand for, two proposed bill changes associated to school (realistic/viable/costings), five pieces of advertising/propaganda (banner, badges, poster, advert, pamphlet) and funding ideas for proposed bills.

On Thursday we will be spending most of the morning until 12:30pm preparing to present to the school all of the above. From 12:30 – 12:45pm you will be setting up your political party information booth in the Upper School courtyard ready for the constituents to vote from 12:45pm until 1:30.

As Thursday is your campaign day you are allowed to come in clothes to represent your party.  You will need to make sure that you are well presented and your clothing will encourage people to vote for you.  Feel free to share this post with your parents!

After lunch on Thursday, the successful party will be given time to decide how they are going to govern the Year 6s on Friday (within the rules of the school of course!) This will have to tie in with your party statement 1 voting 2

Good luck and my the most well prepared party win!

Looking forward to placing my vote!

RIBIT DAY – Reading In Bed Is Terrific

The kids had an amazing day with a morning that involved milk and cookies, making your own book mark and also reading your favourite book to your friends. To top off such a great day we went to the Grade 5 classrooms where we were amazed with the cubbies that they had built for our Grade 1’s to sit in and share their books.

A huge thank you to all that were involved. More photos will be added so keep checking the blog.

Grandparents Day

A big thankyou to all our wonderful grandparents that came along to our class to share stories about when they were growing up. We talked about toys, getting around, cooking, types of food, schooling and home life. We began the day with a grandparents ‘show and tell’ session! Here are some of the interesting things they bought along. Can you guess what they all do?
