In grade one, we have grade three buddies. My buddy’s name is Isabella. She is really helpful and in some sessions we get to have free time with our buddies. We get to draw, read and stuff like that. Me and my buddie have lots of fun together. Some times we have to share. Some of the grade ones have two buddies. We have buddy time every Monday. And sometimes when our buddies are away we get to share each others. I love buddy time!!!!
What do you like about having a buddy?

Grade One Parents,
Some students will receive sheets to practise their handwriting over the holidays or any time at their/your convenience. It will be more beneficial if they have a grey lead pencil, sharpener and eraser available while practising. We are reminding students of correct pencil grip and starting letters in the correct spot and also not lifting the pencil if they don’t need to!
There is a great iphone/ ipad/ android app called “rEd writing” which really helps and includes the Victorian Modern Cursive Font. https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/red-writing-learn-to-write/id474392775?mt=8

In our inquiry, we have been learning about interviewing. We have been watching some videos to help us learn more about interviewing. We have been learning about open and closed questions. An open question is a question that gives you more information from the person that you are interviewing, a closed question is a question that gives you one or two words for your answer. An open question is very important question because you learn more about the other person’s life. I interviewed my dad. Something I learnt about my dad is, his favourite holiday is Christmas because, we go up to Brisbane and gather up the family. I moved from Brisbane because my mum got her job here.
