# Student Learning

## Foundation

Reading: The students have been focusing on the 'l' and 'r' blends.

Writing: Wow!!! We are incredibly proud of the persuasive writing the students published this week. They have all worked really hard to draft, edit, revise, type and draw a picture in match their writing. To help celebrate their work, each student got up in front of the class and read their persuasive piece to their classmates. Aiden, Orianna and Navaija were very brave and did a fantastic job reading theirs at assembly. Well done Foundation!

Maths: The students have been busy comparing lengths. Firstly, they estimated the length of different objects around the classroom, then using unifix cubes they measured and compared them. The students have also loved working on their subtraction and addition using colour by number worksheets.

Sport: Another highlight has been going to the Cobram Pool . It has been great to see everybody swimming and having so much fun in the water. The students have also tried their hand at playing lawn bowls.
