Our Collaborative Paper Hats

Last Friday, in small groups activity we had to come up with the most creative paper hat. The underpinning learning was what required to make a team. Here are our models with our creations.

These are the skills that Room 2 thought we important:

  • Goal Setting
  • Involving everyone( Time management)
  • Brainstorming ideas
  • Problem solving
  • Questioning

Swimming Dates for term 1

Dear Parents,

First day has run smoothly, we have been focussing on getting to know each other. This is likely to be the theme for week one.

I am aware that Burnham School has just had confirmation from the Army for the school to use the army swimming pool.

For room 2, we will be swimming week 1 and week 3.

We will be swimming this week both Thursday and Friday. 

Week 3 we will be swimming each day. This is the week starting the 15 February until the 19th February.

For the new families at Burnham School the students will get changed at school and we will walk to the pool at 1.30pm.  Swimming will started at 1.45 until 2.30pm. There will be a rotation of three groups.

Each year the students pled with me to have a free swim after his or her lesson.  I am only able to this if a parent or parents volunteer to actively watch a group in the water, while I am taking a lesson. If you are able to help me please contact me by email with dates. I know the students will be grateful if they get an opportunity to have a free swim.

Remember the door is anyways open to chat about your child’s learning.

Kinds Regards
