Day One of our Camp Week

Today we played four co-operative games with Project Energise.

We had to work co-operatively, support our team members and think hard about how we were going to complete some of the challenges.

We had lot's of fun and worked hard as a team!

Roll on Day Two of Camp Week!

Our topic this term

Today we talked about Interdependence and what this word means.

We know that independent means all by yourself.
So that means dependent means you rely on someone.
Therefore interdependence means things that are related and connected to each other.

Check out this video clip that Mrs Head in room 9 found. It explains a bit more what Interdependence means.

Today we read a story called "Chrysanthemum". It was about a girl who loved her name but then started school. At school she was teased because her name was too long and she was named after a flower. She ended up loving her name again because her music teacher said her name was perfect and she was also named after a flower! Then the girls who teased her renamed themselves as flowers!

Write a comment and let us know how you got your special name.
