April Fools

This morning Miss Wallis tricked Room 1 into doing a word search,

Everyone were incredibly focused and determined to win.

After 15 minutes they started to get confused why they had not found any words,
Miss Wallis told the class at the end that it was an unsolvable word search that had no words.

Watch how the morning unpacked....

Cooperative Group Work

Today at daily exercise Room 1 were given a challenge 'Try not to touch the ground'..

Room 1 Sleepover

Dear Parents/ Caregivers

This Thursday Room 1 will be having their sleepover at School. 

I would like to invite all parents/ caregivers  of Room 1 to come down to school on Thursday afternoon where we will be having games and activities to get to know each other a little better. I would love for you to come down and enjoy a fun afternoon with students of Room 1 for 2016.
On Thursday afternoon I will be challenging the students in a “child friendly’ style fear factor. I have done this with my previous classes and it was proven to be a great success where students pushed themselves outside their comfort zones.This also built great team spirit within the classroom and bonded the students greatly.  

I would like to invite any parents/ caregivers who would also like to challenge themselves to come along and challenge the kids as well. Fear Factor will start at 4:15pm on Thursday afternoon and go until around 5:00pm.
Remember to bring togs and an open mind if you intend on participating.
Yours truly,
Anna Wallis
