Mr Graham's Class Learning Definition 2012

"Learning is discovering new things, improving knowledge, and not giving up when things get hard. It is about getting better at something you are not good at so you can become a smarter person" Mr Graham's Class 2012

Term1, Week 2 Merits!

During the first two weeks, we had a focus on 'Caring' and upholding our 'Class Norms' (which we spent a lot of time writing together).


Each week we have a vote on who was the most caring person of the week. The winner needs to have shown caring towards others through...
  • Respect
  • Listening
  • Helping
  • Fair Play
  • Teamwork
  • Working without rewards

Class Norms 2012

After reading the short story 'Simon Duck' by Paul Jennings, we made a 'discussion doughnut' and talked about how we would like to be treated by others. 

Next we sat with a partner and came up with 3-5 things that we would like to see in this class.We wrote these on post-it notes and put them on the whiteboard.
The last part involved making connections - we grouped everything we came up with under seven categories:
  • Respect
  • Honesty
  • Positivity
  • Sportsmanship
  • Fairness
  • Inclusiveness
  • Friendliness

Term1, Week 2 Merits!

  • Reid Osman for being caring towards other classmates
  • Reid Osman for upholding the class norms and setting a good example for others
  • Jordyn Bold for upholding the class norms and setting a good example for others
