Thurs/Friday 27 & 28 October

Sorry for not blogging yesterday- not enough hours to do it in the day!!
The past few days we have been looking at planning poster of for the folio piece.   I modelled how to go about this using bold headings, persuasive words, pictures and short phrases.  I modelled a poster on the Diwali Festival- this is an Indian Festival that started on Oct 26.  We looked at the images that we should use, researched the facts and created a joint poster on the IWB.
The children loved this activity and are excited about starting a rough copy of the poster on Tuesday.

A big reminder that Monday is the P-3 swimming carnival.  Yr 2 & 3 will have their carnival from 11-1pm.  All children will participate in an event at their level of swimming.  Your child may go home at 1pm. Just make sure that you sign out on the list stuck near the door.
Day for Daniel and the coffee van from Zarrafa's was a great success and we raised over $1000 for the Daniel Morcombe Foundation.  We discussed the feelings that we may have if we feel unsafe and what we should do if you have them: talk to an adult you trust, don't go with anyone that you don't know or if your parents are unaware that you are going with them.  We completed a colouring sheet with these suggestions and it has gone home today.  Please talk about this with your children at home.
Have a wonderful weekend and see you at the Carnival if you can make it.
