Protecting our Natural Resources

Hi Juniors and parents,

We have had a busy term learning about natural resources! We have learned about water, air and land and things that are destroying these natural resources.

We have been talking about how we can help protect these natural resources!
Here is a link that shows how other kids are helping to protect natural resources

We Are the BEST!!!!!!

The Junior classes this week were learning how to write a text that persuades the reader to see things from their point of view.

We had to persuade you the reader that our part in the school production was the best act.

 

We are the Best

by Junior KF

Junior KF is the Best act in the Whole School Production!

Our class practices more than all the classes put together.

We have the best costumes because our costumes are stylish and sparkly. We have fabulous, fantastic headpieces for the girls and the boys.

Our theme Aladdin is the greatest story of all time with the best characters and the most action!

Our song is awesome. It is a great tune. You can really groove to it. One song is smooth and the other is Rock and Roll.

Our dancing is incredible because we have super legendary moves.

YES, Junior KF is the Best!!!!!

We hope we have persuaded you that on the night you should definitely look forward to Junior KF’s act!!!!

Our Environment

This Term for our Inquiry Unit we will be looking at environments. Yesterday we had to brainstorm by ourselves all the things we know about environments.

Riley: Nature is an environment.

Celia: The ocean is an environment.

Eve: Gardens are an environment.

Madeleine: The sunset is an environment.

These ideas help us to decide what is an environment and what is not an environment.

Do you think all of these ideas are environments?

Why do you agree or disagree?

James thinks nature is an environment because there are plants and trees and worms to help things grow. There is also green grass and people.

Jake said there is wild life in an environment.

Eva said the ocean is an environment because there is fish and seaweed and all sorts of animals live there.

Erin said the garden is an environment because there are plants in it and plants are part of the environment.

Patrick said sunset is part of the solar system and the solar system is an environment.

Hi Juniors,

This term we have been learning about different ways that stories can be told. We have enjoyed our new discoveries so far and now we want to know our own stories!

Where do our families come from? Do they come from different countries? What is our heritage?

Clink on the picture below to explore different countries from around the world!

Where does your family come from?
