Parents- Thanks for your feedback on Survey Monkey. 

Most people said they are happy with our current format but one parent suggested a grid design. So, if you would like your child to have more alternatives for homework, I have designed this grid. The requirement for all students is to do 30-40 minutes homework  Let me know what you think. Click on the page to bring up a clearer version that can be printed.

Another grid with some different options if you have run out!

Please note: In class, we have read about the effect of European Settlements on Aboriginals and also read about the effect of settlement on the environment. You can use this information in your project for the 3rd section.

(See info above about modification to deadlines)

For those who are interested, I have posted the rubric and goals for the Buddy Book. I hope it is helpful, however, children should do the work independently for a fair assessment. Thanks!

Term 1


• Setting Goals- thinking that setting a goal can help me to be more successful at a task.

2012 Boat assessments: All children should have received their grades for their boat projects. Well done everyone. We had some amazing creations!



2012 PERSONAL HISTORY PROJECT (Assessment) : All students should now have a copy of their grade as well as a written summary of their achievement. I am happy to give more detail or clarification if needed. The children should feel proud of these wonderful records of their lives. I think in the future, they may enjoy looking through their work again. Maybe at their 21st birthdays?
Well done everyone!
