To all our Mums, Grandmas and carers, we wish you a very Happy Mother’s Day.

We recognise how important you are in our lives and thank you for all the love and support you give us.

We hope you have a very special day on Sunday May 11th.

During the week several Grade 2 children made a special lunchtime visit to the ICT room to create stories for their mothers. We hope you enjoy them.

A Storybird Surprise

Grade One children wrote lots of excellent Storybird stories last year and they published many of their stories online.

Ben wrote many exciting stories, but just imagine his surprise when he received one of his published stories in a parcel for Christmas!

Here’s Ben reading his story to his classmates.

Ben

You can read his story called ‘The Second Story of the Magic Tree’ below.

Congratulations Ben on your first published book! It’s a great read!

Ben continues to write great stories this year too. To read his newest book called ‘Why I made Stories’ click here.

Storybird

Storybird is a literacy tool which enables children to write art-inspired stories.

Recently in ICT Grade 2 children have been developing their storytelling skills by using Storybird.

The children love writing stories but they don’t just have to write them in ICT. They can write them in their classroom, at home or anywhere they can use the internet.

Parents can access the stories with their child’s easy password and can also view the library of published Grade 2 completed stories.

Sansa (Grade 2LO) has been very busy writing stories at home and at school. Here is one of her stories.

Parents, if you want to read your child’s stories please ask them for their password.
