    Talk homework - talk about the skills from Skills builder that you have used for the projects you have completed this week (pencil case and library)

    We have been busy this week finishing a Skills builder's project called Brilliant Books.  We explored how a library space is used and discovered that it serves the whole community besides just lending out books.  After lengthy discussions, we designed and later built a 3D model using recycled materials. 

    Another project we focused on this week was our DT and Art work.  We sketched out our interpretation of the Firebird, from our Power of Reading book, and then transferred this onto a plastic tile.  After rolling on a thin layer of paint, we printed the image onto a pencil case.  

    Hope you have a good weekend.

    We are starting to see a real interest in the use of boom reader which is superb. However, research reports parents should be reading with children up to the age of 13, in agreement, feedback from Hinchinbrook state all years including year 11 do guided reading with their tutors as part of their tutorial programme 4 times a week. Therefore, we encourage getting into the habit of reading with an adult at home daily, from the start of primary and continuing up to secondary school to support a pleasure in reading, understanding and vocabulary of books.

    This week, Fern class has embraced the challenge to improve their handwriting through constructive criticism, we look forward to continuing this next week. Play practice has been a highlight for the majority of Fern class.
