Today we visited The Den to participate in a presentation all about Singapore. Over the term the students in room 10 have been very busy learning lots about the Asian Country. We saw dancing, a news story, a power point and even tasted some interesting cuisine from Singapore. Thanks room 10 for a great afternoon of entertainment.
These are ‘The Teams’ first ever spelling competition winners. To win the competition the students had to come up with as many words that they could make out of the word ‘SPELLING’. Abby was the champion with 38 words and Kiana was runner-up from our class with 30. Well done to both girls.
Check out The Collaborative Spelling Blog for our next competition.

I hope all the dad’s have an awesome day for Fathers Day. I would love to hear what everyone got up to on the day and how they spoilt their dad.
Today at school the student leaders held the ‘Show Your Colours Day’ where we had the opportunity to wear our favourite sports teams colours. My class knows I support the Mighty Carlton Blues and know how much I dislike the Eagles so when I arrived at our classroom this morning it was covered in the colours of the Eagles.
There were blue and yellow balloons and streamers galore covering the walls, tables and MY DESK! Thanks to all those lovely students and teacher (Mrs Y) who came up with a great surprise.
We have been madly working on creating some wonderful stories using Storybird. The children have been writing about friendship using a great variety of different illustrations. Our next assignment topic will be a story with a moral related to showing respect. You can check out these stories on my student’s blogs.

The teachers in the senior block have been busy discussing how we can change our spelling program to cater to the needs of our students better. We have come up with some great ideas. One of which is a spelling blog so that children can access a variety of activities at home and at school to help them reach their targets.
By the end of the week we hope to get it up and running properly so that it will benefit the needs of our senior students. We are also hoping that eventually other students from the school can extend their spelling learning through our blog as well.
