What a wonderful term!

What a week we have had in Grade 6!

It began on Monday with our visit from Boori Monty Pryor, an Indigenous Australian writer who is best known as a story teller. And boy did he tell us some great stories! We learnt about his life growing up in Queensland with multiple brothers and sisters and the hilarious shenanigans they got up to. He also gave us fantastic tips on how to write great stories such as taking pictures to base your story on, audio recording your stories before writing them and editing, editing and more editing!

On Tuesday we had footy day at Laburnum Primary School. A highlight was the assembly where we all were able to walk the ‘catwalk’ with our footy team mates! We had delicious footy day lunch and, of course, the traditional Grade 5 verses Grade 6 girls football game. We were only able to play three-quarters of the match as we were rained out, but everyone was such a fantastic sport. The Grade 6 girls won the match and Lara won the prized Hopcroft medal. Well done to everyone!

That afternoon we had our DEA Assembly and were presented with our gold web design badges after creating informative and engaging websites about the different types of government. A big thankyou to all the parents that attended too!

Today we are off to the Nunawading Basketball stadium for a fun day of teamwork activities involving basketball. We are looking forward to another great day and a brilliant way to end our busy term.

A final note about the Noo Bear notice that went home last week. This is optional and there will be a notice coming home next term to purchase a cheaper bear for your child to sign if you wish.

With the best term of Grade Six to come we hope everyone has an amazing break and we look forward to seeing you all in Term 4!
