Title  My Mother’s Eyes

Age Range10+

Author/illustrator Mark Wilson

StorylineWilliam fought in World War 1.  He was only 16 and lied about his age. He wrote a lot of letters to his mother. And he was sent to Egypt to train for four weeks.  

Text To SelfI can connect this to my grandpa he fought in the second world war and lied about his age.

Text to TextI can connect this book to ‘One Minute Silent’ because it is also about war and people lying about their age so they can keep our country safe

Text to WorldI can connect this to the world because today there are still countries around the world fighting for their freedom.

Girls footy is back and better than ever!!!

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 6.42.10 PMDivision – Here we come!

As some you may know the 4/5/6s played girls football last term, we played 3 teams and we had a lot of fun. It was such a great day.

We were limited with only 18 players that volunteered. We had no subs and no breaks. As we are such a small school I found it hard to find people to be in the team. But  I was determined to make this team and with help from my friends, we made it happen!

Last week, when we found out that we made it to Division. I went to talk to the 5/6 level to see who was interested and I wasn’t expecting  many hands, but we got 32 girls that wanted to play! I was so shocked and happy with how many girls raised their hands.

With the help of Kayden, Jake, Lanah, Georgia, and Mr Puls we were able to make the best team possible to send to Division. These teams will be announced tomorrow.
