Term 4 - Oaklands' School CARE VALUES

I show the Community  value when I sit on the mat, when I put rubbish in the bin and when I put my hand up.

I use the  Active Thinking value when I think about my learning and when I make good choices.

I demonstrate the Respect value when I play nicely and when I put my hand up on the mat.

I show the  Excellence value when I try my best and when I take pride in my work.


These are some of the things I think a good reader does:
  • They sound out unknown words
  • They stretch out words to work them out
  • Persevere with harder books
  • They read fluently
