A Post For Parents, Families And Friends: What Was Your Favourite Subject At School?

We are all enjoying August is Family Blogging Month and it has been great to see lots of parents, family members and family friends get involved!

This special post was written for the 4KJ parents, families and family friends…and anyone else who would like to comment! There is still plenty of time left in our blogging challenge, and we would love to see as many people comment as possible!

In 4KJ we enjoy doing lots of different subjects. Some of the subjects we do in our classroom are…

A two hour Literacy Block

Maths

Technology is integrated into many classroom activities

Inquiry

We also have three specialist subjects each week. Over the year we do Physical Education, Art, Indonesian and Environmental Studies.

This got us thinking…what did the 4KJ parents and family members enjoy when they were at school?

We’d love to hear from parents, family members and our other global visitors, so please leave us a comment!

What was your favourite subject at primary school and why?

August Is Family Blogging Month!

The students in 4KJ love to share what they are learning and experiencing through this blog.

The involvement of family members in our blog is so important. It makes everything we do at school more meaningful and special.

In an effort to include more family members in our online community, we are starting a new blog comment challenge called

Whenever a students’ family member leaves us a comment, the student will record it on our blog comment chart using the following codes.

Family Blogging Month Codes

At the end of August, the student who has the most comments from different family members will win a prize! In order to keep the challenge fair to everyone, each student can only record one comment on the chart per day. So the goal is to get as many different family members involved as possible during the month-long challenge!

Having conversations through commenting is one of the best parts of blogging so in your comments feel free to ask questions and reply to other people’s questions.

We’re inviting everyone to comment including mums, dads, brothers, sisters, grandmas, grandpas, uncles, aunts, cousins and family friends.

* Family members don’t have to comment only on this post, they can comment on any post on our blog. *

Miss Jordan has run similar competitions in the past and it is always a big success. Thanks to Mrs Yollis for coming up with this idea!

Family Blogging Month Winners Announced!

During May, the students in 4KM and 4KJ have been trying hard to get all their families and friends involved in our class blog.

We had a competition called May is Family Blogging Month where we used a chart to record how many comments we were receiving from the students’ families and friends.

It was fantastic that we had lots of mums, dads, siblings, aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins and family friends comment on our blog!

Today is the last day of May so the winners were announced. Congratulations…

Sophie and Becky each won a $30 voucher for Godfathers on Leopold Pizza and Pasta Restaurant and some lollies and chocolate for dessert!

We had around 800 comments on our blog during May. Wow!

Now that the competition is over, we still hope that many friends and families of the students in 4KM and 4KJ will continue to visit our blog regularly!

We would like to say a BIG thank you to Godfathers Restaurant in Leopold for kindly donating the two vouchers. Sophie and Becky will enjoy a delicious dinner with their families to celebrate!
