Pen Licences, Water Safety Week and Mathletics Champions

Pen Licences

In Room 15, we all started the year off writing in pencil. Every now and again Miss Chalmers will award a student with a special pen licence. Having a pen licence means that that student can then write in pen in most exercise books. These are the things we need to consider when writing in our books:
  • Writing the date correctly
  • Starting right by the margin
  • Missing lines
  • Underlining mistakes and fixing them on the line above
  • Always trying our best with handwriting (we don't have to focus so hard at writing time, though, that we spend more time on handwriting than we do on recording our brilliant ideas)
Check out these Pen Licence Rockstars!

Water Safety at the Pools

Last week was Water Safety Week at the pools. There were a few worried faces when the instructors told us we had to get our life vests on before hopping into the deep pool. We did some really scary things like falling backwards into the water. Nevertheless, there were lots of smiles at the end!

Mathletics Champions

Well done to the following students for keeping up with their Mathletics. There have been a few children with "0" points recently. It's important that children use Mathletics regularly, it really makes a difference with basic facts, in particular. 

And check out Dylan, who got our highest weekly score EVER a while back:
