Writing focus

What a fantastic morning we had at the sustainable garden at Hannahs Bay today. Thank you to the parents and the volunteers who helped. I know that the students enjoyed the trip and have learnt a lot.
Over the next three weeks we will focusing on explanation writing, students will be writing to explain something. Click here to see examples and here for the exemplars to see the success criteria.
Our topic for explanation is, "How does a plant grow."
Please talk to your child about their writing and help them develop the language of explanations.

Mr James.
