De Bono's Thinking Hats.

Over the last few weeks we have been learning about, and using the six thinking hats.
Today we looked at the Blue Hat.
We made plans of How to Catch a Frog!
We drew our own plans to take home and share with our family. Some of us even tried to build a frog catcher with the Duplo!

Creativity & Caring!

We have been learning about the Ashley School REACH values.
Today we talked about Creativity and Caring. We all made a pet rock and put it in a safe bed. We will care for them at home and make sure they are always safe and warm.

Our Monarch Butterfly is free!

Last night our Monarchs came out of their chrysalis.
We set them free onto the bushes outside our classroom.
Keira had the good idea to put this news on our blog.

Back to business as usual!

We are loving being back at school again.

Today Fraser and Vinnie came to teach fun new games and how to field. Their friends Scott and Ryan came to help too as the school they usually visit is closed. Wow! Eight Room 6 children and four sporting experts! What a good ratio.

We would like you to visit our classroom too so that you can see how we are learning about the Ashley REACH values.
