Another fabulous week of learning we have had at Dinjerra. There are so many exciting things happening at our school.

At Dinjerra, we realise the importance of a great spelling program. We practice our spelling  everyday so we can improve our vocabulary and have words we can spell forever. This week, our class words are ‘phobia’ and ‘aversion’. How about you ask your child or a member of the 4/5/6A community what those words mean!

The school value we are looking at this week is ‘We are Learners’. We had a great discussion about how learning looks in the classroom and also in the shared area of the BER building. The students worked in small groups using Popplet on the iPads to brainstorm and create mind maps of how we can represent this. Stay tuned to see what we come up with!

We love working together and helping each other be wonderful learners!

Finally, this week the Class Captains of Grade 4/5/6A were announced. We had many wonderful nominations and some terrific persuasive speeches. It was great to see so much encouragement amongst the students and good sportsmanship for those who missed out. We would like to congratulate Chosyn and Leena who were voted by their peers. They have already demonstrated fantastic leadership and will be wonderful captains for 4/5/6A in 2014! School Captains and Sports Captains will be announced soon.

Until next week,
