Integrity Song

We have been learning about INTEGRITY this term. We hope to be people who don't just know about integrity but show it as well.

This is one of our poems this week, which is really a song. We've posted it so we can bop along to it as we read.

Here's another song!

Not for the faint 'hearted'

IF BLOOD IS NOT YOUR THING PLEASE TURN AWAY!

Thanks Matthew (left) and his family for fulfilling Mrs Forrest's dream of showing the class a real heart - a stag heart that is!

It was amazing to put our gloved fingers in through the 'tubes' and feel the chambers we have been learning about. 

Enjoy the photos. You have got to love the facials!

Protector ck!

WHEN YOU HEAR 'k' ON THE END OF A WORD, IS IT -ck, -k or -ke????
Protector ck  protects weak vowels from nasty critters.
(Watch the video below for more information on this rule. This video and others are on our Sound of the week: 'k' post)

pick    Protector ck is needed! I is weak by itself saying its short name/nickname.
pink    The I has a letter friend so it does not need protecting.
pike    The I says its full name. It is strong and does not need protecting thanks to Policeman E.

Here is Steffini, Tayla, Shiloh and Noelle with their protector ck shields to defend weak vowels. I wouldn't mess with them!
