Once we have written our scripts we are creating the plays using Puppet Pals.


My play is called "Running Away"

Peace Week 2017

I have been learning about Peace Week.
Peace Week is an annual tradition organised by The Peace Foundation every year. You can learn more about The Peace Foundation by following this LINK.

As a way to learn about Peace Week I did three different Peace Week activities.

With Miss Brennan we created a poster to help promote peace and Peace Week.
With Mrs Baker we made hand print doves and wrote messages of peace on them.
With Mr Horn we looked at the symbols of peace such as the dove and created origami doves.

Here is an example of one of my activities

My highlight at my student led conference was maths because it is challenging to do.
I am most proud of sharing my monster soup because of the drawing and writing.
I think my parents enjoyed my student led conference because my parents asked me lots of questions.
Next time I would like to be more confident.
