Term 2 Week 4 - Room 17 News Update

  Room 17 News Update Hi, we are the ‘Term 2 Press’ Eisha, Navshan and Riley. This past week, Room 11, 17 and 25 had an assembly about PEMDAS. For our WOW writing, our classes had written an ANZAC recount letter as if we were all soldiers who went to battle in Gallipoli during World War I. For our assembly, we wore 90’s grunge/hip-hop outfits. We practised for our assembly for only one week, but we had a lot of fun. Most of us had a part in the assembly, if we wanted one.

Room 17 News Update

  Room 17 News Update Hi Readers   We are The Room 17 Press: Steven, Sienna and Shania and we are going to share about what has been happening in our class so far this term.

For our science lesson we have gone and looked up different types of emergency warning systems for information and use it for a project with our groups. We have been brainstorming ideas of all the natural disasters all over the world and how people can get a type of message that a disaster is going to happen. In writing we have been researching on a specific type of species of an Asian animal and we are going to write about it next week. For the past week w

Last Post of the Year - 2020

Oh my goodness! Term 4 flew by! I cannot believe that this year is coming to an end.  From Camp in Week 4, to Graduation lunch in Week 7, straight to Graduation/Dance in Week 8, Swimming in Weeks 9 and 10, winning Principal's Challenge in Week 9 (Valiant effort Room 17!), then ringing the bell on the last day at Wattle Grove Primary School.  It has been an amazing year Room 17! I am so happy that I had the opportunity to learn with you through this adventurous year.  Remember  Dr Wayne W. Dyer : 'When given the choice between being right and being kind, CHOOSE KIND!' Here are some photos to remember your last Term of Primary School. Good luck to all you extraordinary people! Kalgoorlie Camp! Fun times and great memories!
