Week 3 update

It has been such a massive week of learning in Year 2. This week started with Michael Salmon coming to speak with the boys about writing and illustrating narratives. While our girls also had a special guest Hayley Shanks along with Mrs Shanks and a group of mothers come and teach them how to created magnificent celebration food.

We have been looking this week at the many different celebrations conducted around the world both in Library and in class and have finished off looking at "Time" for the year.

Later in the week we started our writers workshop where students were given the task of creating interactive iBooks. Currently these are in draft stage; however, the plan is to release the library of these later this term. I am impressed with the skill and creativity being displayed both in the narrative and the illustrations.

Today all students have been given their username letters, this will allow student access to both their email and drives where their files are kept. If you have any queries please come and speak with me about this.

Please remember the Public Speaking Competition is next week.
