  • We learned how to use Morse Code to send secret messages.
  • We used our multiplication and division skills to problem solve fraction questions.

Health & Wellbeing:

  • We discussed how to fit more physical activity into our day, even small amounts.
  • We decided to support our Buddies in P2M to teach them playground games which will help them play co-operatively.

Social Studies:

  • We planned the design and construction of our Anderson Shelter based on real life jobs such as
    • Architects
    • Exterior/Interior Designers
    • Painters
    • Resource Managers
    • Risk Assessors
    • Construction Team

We are so proud of our Primary 7 representatives at the Rotary Quiz on coming 2nd place, just being pipped at the post by 2 points.

Next week, we are looking forward to teaching P2M playground games and buddy reading with our Buddies on World Book Day on Thursday.

Have a wonderful weekend!
