September Writing Challenge

Today we had a special Junior school assembly.  We all got together to celebrate the fantastic storywriting skills that we have.  Many children in our class entered into the Junior School Writing Challenge.  They all wrote stories which had lots of rhyming words in them. 

Mrs. Cocks, our Literacy Teacher, had 160 stories to read.  It was very hard for her to choose a winner from each class.  Some classes even had two winners! It was very special because we all got a special certificate for participating.

Many congratulations to Layla and Viduni who won from our class.  Their books will be diplayed in the Junior school for lots of children to read. 

Congratulations to Mitchell, Phillip, Lukas, Emily, Bianca, Bailey, Marc, Morgan, Hannah and Jasmine for their efforts too!


Book Swap Day!

Last week our class was involved in the Book Swap Challenge.  The Prep children organised the day as part of their action for helping others in their community.   We all bought a book to school that we wanted to swap with someone else.  The Preps then collected the books each day and then displayed them on the Swap Day.  We then bought our gold coin to school and swapped over our books. We really enjoyed being able to bring home a new book.  Some of us even bought a book for our younger brothers and sisters.

 The Prep children did a wonderful job collecting the money as we visited their classroom.  It is really nice to know that all the money the children collected will go to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.  All of our much loved books have found a new home too!
