On Friday we had a special visit from some people from the army. They brought in some of their vehicles and let us climb on board to have a closer look. They showed us a massive gun and talked to us about their jobs in the army.

We had a special ANZAC service at the end of the day to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the soldiers landing at Gallipoli.
Thanks Miss Simpson for organising this special event.

Asking FAT and SKINNY Questions

We are learning to ask FAT questions to get information. Yesterday we did a fun activity to explore WHAT IS a fat/skinny question.

Miss Jeynes explained the purpose of using Fat questions and the use of Skinny questions, and we practiced asking questions with our Learning Buddies.

We read the poem "Humpty Dumpty' and then got into groups to brainstorm creative questions based on the poem. Some of us came us with very creative questions that went 'beyond' the poem...
