Week 5 Term how are YOU travelling?

SHACC Sharing!
Another wonderful session with the SHACC members but we have room for more! Our next SHACC is on Wednesday the 18th of June (Week 8) and we discussed our jigsaw activity, with people having great success! The use of the question matrix to help students pose questions really supported the inquiry process in History. We are focussing on Timelines for our next session so if you have a great timeline activity, please come along and share!

Hikes through History!
We had our first History Hike last week with 2 wonderful teachers visiting from Quairading and Gosnells! They saw a range of lessons from the teachers in the TDS team and went away full of ideas! we also welcomed the fabulous History Team of Bertrum PS. They enjoyed the brisk, clean, fresh air in the valley. Semester 1 lesson plans will be uploaded soon. 
Watch this space!

The next Hike is on Wednesday the 24th of July (Week 9). Register NOW!

Sawyers Hits the Road!
Sawyers Valley Sharing is excited to be travelling to the Great Southern Network next week! It is going to be awesome meeting teachers who are engaging in History in the classroom!
I will update the blog on return and share what we did!

That's all for now!
