APPLES discussing their book and making predictions.

Wow!  Mondays are so much fun with Book Club to end the day!  I heard so many good readers and such good discussions as I moved around the different groups this week.

ORANGES contributed actively to the discussion.

Book Club is where you all get to climb inside the writer’s head and look at Who? What? Where? Why? When? and How? things happen in the text.

BANANAS had a good session and were able to SUMMARISE the text well.

Your team leaders have been doing a terrific job helping you to explore RIGHT THERE questions, THINK AND SEARCH questions and ON YOUR OWN questions to make meaning of what you are reading.

PEARS were very thoughtful as they talked about their text this week!

GRAPES are reading some challenging texts and they loved the spies this week.

Every single student was engaged in their learning and for that I thank our wonderful parent volunteers who have been coming in each week! Your help and support has made an enormous difference to us in Room 6 so thank you for your time and your caring and helpful personalities!  🙂

I particularly LOVE the way all of you are able to share with the whole class some of the READING STRATEGIES you have used and we are all able to celebrate your hard work in Book Club during these final minutes each week!  Here you are, sharing the summarising strategy…

Learning Environment and Inquiry

What a fantastic group of learners you are!!!   You really showed off your finding out skills during our inquiry group work over the past two weeks.FINDING OUT comes after our IMMERSION stage in our inquiry – as you found out all about the symbols, emblems and flags which represent AUSTRALIA and WESTERN AUSTRALIA!  Great job, people!  😎I think the film makers were also SO impressed with the way in which you changed our learning environment to fit the job you were doing at the time!   It’s all about knowing what changes you need to make to learn best!  🙂




your enthusiasm and willingness to give everything a go, giving your best effort in class and on the sports field.  Way to go, Henry!  🙂


your responsible attitude and being an attentive and reliable class member.  We love your friendly nature and the way you always help your peers!  🙂
