FIsher Dad

Fisher Dad

In the morning, getting ready to go fishing.
He is in warm clothes making sandwiches ready
for the boat, filling up drink bottles for the boat, putting
ice in the chilly bin and getting the gross stinky bait out
of the freezer. Setting up the boat he’s putting the fishing
rods in the boat and other stuff. Then jumping out
and driving to the wharf. After he has gotten the boat on
the water and has his life jacket on and is in the boat, he starts.
The boat goes slow in the channel but when he can go fast,
he is zooming off. When he finds a good fishing spot he
stops and parks up and starts to put the anchor down. Once
he is done he gets out the stinky gross bait and a fishing rod,  
baits his hooks and puts them out. He gets out the burley
pot and when he has a fish he winds it in and goes again
and has a great time.

Sharing our Learning in Room 10

On the last week of Term 2, the whole school shared their learning with their families. The children did the sharing and the parents did the listening and asking questions. 
The teachers were there to help out anyone if they needed it. 

Cassie - "I liked it because I got to share my learning my dad."

Oscar - "I liked it because my mum and dad gave me some feedback and feedforward of what I needed to do and so did Andrea."

CJ - " They were good because I got share my learning with my mum and dad and spend more time with them in the classroom. " 

Andrea (teacher) - "I enjoyed them as I got to watch my students proudly share their learning, spend quality time with their parents and family and show off their achievements. "

Online Gaming Debate

We decided to start a debate about playing online games after a lot of our class said they are playing some of these games.  Some people shouldn't even be playing these games because they are for 13 years of age and over.  What's your opinion?
