What an exciting week!
We had a visitor come to our school. His name was Uncle Steven. Uncle Steven is an aboriginal man. He talked to us about his life when he was a little boy. He also showed us some musical instruments.
We watched a dreaming story on the Promethean board as well.
In History, we talked about the activities that we love doing with our Grandma or our Grandpa. Here are some stories that we told.
National Walk Safely to school Day:
Now in its 17th year, National Walk Safely to School Day (WSTSD) is an annual event when all Primary School children will be encouraged to walk and commute safely to school.
The event will be held throughout Australia on Friday 20 May 2016
This event helps raise awareness of Road Safety recommendations that:
- Children up to eight years old should hold an adult’s hand on the footpath, in the car park, or when crossing the road; an adult is defined as a parent, caregiver, grandparent, sibling in high school or older, other relative or neighbour, or other adult as advised by the child’s parents/carers
- Children up to ten years old should be actively supervised in the traffic environment and should hold an adult’s hand when crossing the road
At WCCS, we will be speaking to our K-2 students on Friday about Road Safety. Parents are encouraged also to have a conversation about Road Safety with their children to support this message, and , if possible, walk with their children either to or from school on Friday
