Someone will have to help me with more creative titles for these posts!
Although I was unable to be there the word is that everyone played really well during today’s music lesson. Next week will be the final rehearsal before we perform for the Junior Primary classes and parents. I’m looking forward to it as it’s a great opportunity for you all to shine and show how hard you’ve been working, and the progress that you’ve made. And thank you, Sam, for the offer, but I don’t think I’ll steal the limelight with a saxophone solo!
This week I’ll be sending a letter home to parents asking them to work with their child on a persuasive writing task. Students will then need to write a letter to their parents trying to persuade them to allow them to do/have something that has been denied. Hopefully the authenticity of the task will promote some powerful persuasive writing!
This will be Ivana’s last week at school before she heads off for an exciting trip to Europe. Hopefully she’ll post about her experiences on her return. Sadly it is also Sam’s last week working with us. I’ve certainly enjoyed having Sam working in our classroom and we wish him well with the rest of his studies. Maybe he’ll come back and visit us again.
