Welcome to C7's blog 2012
We welcome parents and extended family to our classroopm. We really appreciate any parent help. So far we have two lovely mums, Kylee and June who are giving up their precious time to help out with reading. Remember the more practice the children get, the more confident they become. Thank you to all you terrific parents who are supporting your children with homework. As a teacher I can see the growth with home reinforcement. Keep up the great work.

We hope you enjoy the spiralling slide show of our magnolia paintings. When Mrs Burnett brought the magnolias to school we looked carefully at them so we could capture the shape, colour and texture of the flowers and branches. We had to hold our paint brushes like a pencil and try to make feathery strokes with the brush. We also had to blend some of the colours for the petals and buds. The flowers were gigantic and the buds were wrapped in a furry case like a sleeping bag. We were very proud of our art work and we have had lots of lovely compliments. We also wrote some good descriptive stories which we published in the computer suite. Here are some of the stories to read together.
