Three Billy Goats Gruff
This week, our juniors read Paul Galdone's The Three Billy Goats Gruff. They learned new vocabulary words and discussed text-dependent questions. They wrapped up their close reading with a retell craft, which they enjoyed using to act out parts of the story.
Parentzone Gippsland’s, Parents Building Solutions, parenting program to be held in Churchill next term. This is a free parenting program which will cover topics such as Communication, Children’s Behaviour, Child Development, Self Esteem and many more topics.
We had fun playing ‘The Block – build a number’ and ‘Pictionary’ with the MAB to finish up our Place Value unit. The kids had to think creatively to replicate the picture prompt. There were some tricky starts but their solutions to the 3D challenge were impressive.

Students have enjoyed a morning of mixed media art with Dana Ashlakoff. Dana brought a variety of materials and wood and allowed the students to be creative. The students enjoyed the experience.
