Reader's Theatre

On Thursday and Friday the students participated in Readers Theatre. They read scripts, perform in groups, and practice using their voice to depict characters from texts. Through this activity, students have the opportunity to develop fluency and further enhance comprehension of what they are reading (plus it's a lot of fun!)

First Aid Course

Last week the students participated in a First Aid course run by St Johns. The session included lots of practical activities for the students and they had fun while learning some very important skills.
The students learnt about CPR, role played several emergency scenarios (asthma attack, broken limb, burns) and learnt what to do in each situation.
