LSL is over, now for some HASS!

After a few weeks longs service leave, I have returned to the work place ready for more HASS. I was fortunate to travel to the United States with my son and I was able to immerse myself in some History and Geography while I was there. I went to Thomas Jefferson's home Monticello and went to the battlefields from the Civil War. I could see the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance and could see how place and space are interconnected with history in every place I visited. So much history all over the place!

The next SHACC will be held on Wednesday the 16th of September from 4-5 pm at Greenmount Primary School. The focus will be on teaching strategies. Please register via the IPL website. Thank you.

Old Victorian Schoolhouse

Last term we were lucky to have the year 4/5 students, teachers and parents from Hollywood Primary School spend a day in Victorian times. All that attended the day really immersed themselves into the spirit of the day and had a great time. When they returned to their school they completed a Venn Diagram comparing school from today and from the 1900s. I was thrilled to receive these examples from the class that I can now share with you. So many observations were made by the students.
