Hi Room 1,
I’m sitting in the cafe in the ski village of Thredbo watching the snow fall and waiting for my kiddies to finish their lessons. Lyss and Bay are skiing and Flynny is snowboarding. Chad is boarding too with his mate and tomorrow I’m going to do a skiing lesson as well 🏂⛷❄️ We’re here until Fri when we fly back to Perth. Have been to Sydney, a town on the south coast of NSW called Huskisson and drive thru Canberra yesterday too! Having a ball and honestly don’t want to come home!! Here are a few pics, enjoy your first week back, try not to miss me too much and I’ll see you all next Wed 😉

Yesterday Ash returned to our class to see our finished CSI kits that we have created in Design Technologies. He was extremely impressed with the items we had made and included in our kits. We showed them to the class and Ash and described how we had made the items and why we chose to include those specific items. Ash and our classmates then wrote comments into our project booklets about what they liked about our kits.
We can’t wait to show them to our parents after the assembly on Thursday 🙂 Here’s a sneak peak…
I have learnt how to blog!! I have bombarded you all with 8 weeks worth of photos that I have been meaning to put up…Miss Marshall gave me a quick intro this week as I have been well and truly left behind by our clever blogging students and felt I needed to come on board!
From now on I will try to blog every week or two to keep you all up-to-date with the happenings in our classroom, and to also get the students to share about our experiences. Harmony Day anyone??!!
Mrs Cannon 🙂
P.S. I need someone to show me how to get the emojis please!!
Last Thursday we had Constable Netterfield (Ash) & Sergeant Moulden (Randall) visit our class to show us their Forensic Science kit and to answer our questions regarding this kit and it’s use. This term with Mrs Cannon we are completing a project titled ‘Catch the Crook’ as part of our Technologies unit of work. Students have to design a Crime Scene Investigation kit, a box/suitcase or bag and six items inside it that can be used for collecting evidence at a crime scene. Ash & Randall showed us how to collect fingerprints and DNA evidence and explained to us how this evidence is analysed and used to catch criminals. We are still making our kits and have invited them back to view them upon completion and provide us with feedback as to how useful they would be. Randall also said they hope to fingerprint us when they return…here’s hoping we’re not recognised on their database!!
A couple of pics of some of our Year 3’s fraction work during our ‘Hands On’ station for Maths Groups.
Mrs Cannon enjoyed a trip to KMart & IKEA and came back with some new items for our classroom…they were hot property for the first week or so they were introduced!
This term in Science with Mrs Cannon we are being ‘Change Detectives’! We are investigating, exploring and learning about how substances (particularly items from our everyday lives) change under different conditions. Below are photos from some of our investigations on Tuesday afternoons.
This term we have started doing Literacy Centres during our morning literacy block. Students do Guided Reading in groups with a teacher and then rotate around different centres such as Independent Reading, Partner Reading, Magazine Centre, Listening Centre, Handwriting Centre, Book Reviews and Poetry Roll & Answer. Below are some photos of the students practicing new strategies and responding to their reading.
Today is Harmony Day at Perenjori Primary School. The classes will come together to share their learning and taste treats from other cultures.
