The students in Room 5 have quickly settled into the new school year. We have spent lots of time learning about our new classroom and getting to know our classmates.

On Monday this week, we joined the Year 1 and 2 classes on the oval for a Teddy Bear’s Picnic. Our teddies got a chance to come to school and meet our friends. We ate our picnic snacks on rugs we had brought with us. It was great.

We are going to use our picnic experience to begin our Writing program this term. We’ll be learning about how to write an entertaining personal recount. To help us with our writing, our class bear, Sunny will be going on adventures with us.

Last week, after learning about nouns and adjectives, we had a go at writing some descriptive poems. We had to include 2 nouns, 3 adjectives and then finish with 2 more nouns. Some of these poems are below. Room 5 hope you enjoy reading them.

We are looking forward to a great year with lots of fun learning activities.
