Study Ladder is an educational website that includes both Mathematics and Literacy activities. All students were given details of how to access and login to the Study Ladder website. Students were asked to stick these details into their diaries. Students are able to access this website at home for free, but are restricted to three activities per day. I am able to set activities for the students that are relevant to the work we are doing in class. Students earn points for successfully completing tasks and can earn certificates for the progress they make. I will celebrate students certificate achievements on the blog and in the classroom. If you have any questions or problems accessing the site please email me.

Congratulations to Eloise our first certificate recipient. Eloise has achieved her Bronze and Silver certificates. Well Done 🙂
I am pleased to announce that the spelling group names have been decided. Group 1 will be known as ‘Thunderbooks’ and Group 2 will be known as ‘Lightning Bolt’. It was actually a tie for group 2 and I had to make a decision between the two, so I stuck with the weather theme. Thank you to all of you who voted. Please find below the new banners for the Spelling Groups.
Friday Oral Spelling Game Groups
Your Spelling groups for the Friday Oral Spelling game need naming. Please email me your suggestions. Email suggestions will close on Monday at 5pm. Voting will start from Tuesday and close on Thursday at 5pm. I look forward to receiving your suggestions. Please don’t forget to include your name with your email.
It was our first Spelling lesson today. The students were asked to think of some names for the two spelling groups that I host. The students came up with some interesting ideas. We would like your help to decide. Please vote below to help us decide on the new spelling group names. Voting closes 12pm this Sunday. I wonder which ones will win?
Last week our class voted on our class representatives for the Student Leadership Team (SLT). We first looked at the job description and personal qualities required to be an SLT member.
- Attend SLT meetings every fortnight.
- Be prepared to share the ideas and opinions of your class with the SLT.
- Report back information from the meeting to your class.
- Organise and assist with SLT activities, for example Catholic Charities day and the Campus Fair.
- Help make our school and campus a great place to be.
- Confidence to speak in front of others
- Good listening skills
- Responsibility to pass on and share information accurately
- Enjoy working with others
Those students that hadn’t been a SLT representative last year were able to nominate for the position this year. Each of the nominees were asked to give a quick 1 minute speech about the personal qualities they have and what they would bring to the job of SLT. All our nominees did a fantastic job. Our class then voted on deciding on two people (a girl and a boy) for Semester 1 and two people for Semester 2. The voting was very close and I am pleased to announce our new SLT representatives for 2011.
