Wow, we have loved Supertato this week. We explore healthy fruit and vegetables and used them to recreate characters from the story. We had an exciting visitor, Firefighter Chris, who told us all about his job as a real life superhero. Have a look at some of the activities we have enjoyed this week.

What a fun week in R1. We are ambitious, capable learners. We are able to face new challenges and solve problems. Together everyone achieves more, which we proved again this week. We come to school ready to learn and ‘Supertato’ has inspired us to find routes to success. We met a real-life superhero and a firefighter taught us about the problems he faces every day. We made music using the MUSYC app and showed what we know about 3D shapes using the KAHOOT app. Our learning has extended to physical challenges and we even recorded data in charts. Here is a taste of some of our learning in R1…

Try again and do not give up
