Revisiting some work


This week is our school concert - GIRT BY SEA
We are celebrating our wonderful country - Australia and our National Anthem. All 23 grades will be presenting an item and it is at a Performing Arts Centre in our regional city of Ballarat.
I will attempt to post photos if I can - as I will be super busy this week.
We have one and a  half days of rehearsals and two night performances- so a big week for our kids and us.


 We will still be teaching and learning this week - no collapsing of the curriculum for us.
In the prep rooms we will be revisiting living and non living and recording our learning from this term.
We will be revising and revisiting some animals we would like to look at in more detail. I am hoping to have another look at "Pets" so I will be getting out my "Pets and Vets" work.
For those of you in the USA who are just starting out on your school year - this is a great way to get to know your kids.

  1. Absolutely brilliant Paula. Love your work. Can't wait to see photos of your celebration. It sounds fabulous, although exhausting. Do you finish school on Friday for 2 weeks?
