Best wishes, Miss Hannan and Miss Paul!

For the past six weeks, 4KM and 4KJ have enjoyed having Miss Hannan and Miss Paul in the classroom.

They are student teachers from Deakin University. This is Miss Hannan and Miss Paul’s final week in 4KM and 4KJ. You can read more about them here.

Miss Hannan (left, 4KJ) and Miss Paul (right, 4KM) spent their final teaching placement at Leopold Primary School. We thoroughly enjoyed having them with us. They planned and taught many fantastic lessons, and we will be sad to see them go.

Some highlights of Miss Hannan and Miss Paul’s time with us include…

* Their fun and creative maths lessons.

* Learning about road safety and bike education.

* Skyping with Miss Hannan’s sister, Sophie from The Block.

* Meeting one of the special gnomes from The Block.

* Writing narratives.

* Learning more CAFE reading strategies.

* Playing fun activities on the interactive whiteboard.

Here are some Wallwisher messages from the 4KM and 4KJ students.
