"Talk to Me" from 1-2B.
In Literacy this week the students in 1-2B have been literally talking their heads off! They have been having many conversations and writing these down as sentences using quotation marks for direct speech.

In Personal Development/Health/Physical Education this term, 1-2B has been studying 'Understanding Bullying'. We have discussed what friendly behaviour at school is and why we have a friendly class. Students drew various pictures of friendly attributes, rolled each one up and popped them into a balloon. After blowing up the balloon,sticking on feet, drawing a face and giving their 'Balloon Buddy' a name, they then discussed the friendly things they liked about their buddy with the class. Some students named their buddy after a special friend in the class. Friendly attributes included: saying nice things to me, playing with me, sharing with me, sharing and taking turns, helping me to do things. This was a fun activity to do. The students love their 'Balloon Buddies' and look forward to other interesting activities in this unit. Keep up the fantastic work and positive attitude 1-2B!
