Term 2 Thinking

My favourite thing this term was golden time.
Golden time was my favourite thing this term because we could do whatever we want on our netbook or offline.

The thing that I didn’t like this term was water. Water wasn’t my favourite thing because we learnt lots and lots about it and it was getting boring.

Next term  I am looking forward to embracing cultures. I am looking forward to embracing cultures because we will be looking at countries around South America.

Week 8

In Term 2, week 8 Miss G and Miss Tui  and 21 teachers in the cluster, went to Melbourne on Tuesday at 3:30pm. Miss G and Mrs Tui and the 21 teachers went to 8 different schools in Melbourne. 
The schools names were Broadmeadows, Silverton Primary, Berwick Chase, Dandenong High, Hume High Meadows Primary, and Broadmeadows Valley Primary. While she was gone we were finishing off work, some of us in our class had free time. 

When Miss G came back she showed us some pictures, she also gave us little koloa bears, some had boomerangs and some had flags.
