The 3 Types of Traditions Every Family Should Have

Besides the typical family traditions that come with the holidays or birthdays, It has been suggested that families have three types of traditions:

  • Daily Connection Traditions. Daily Connection Traditions are the small things you do every day to re-enforce family identity and values. Many Daily Connection Traditions arise spontaneously from day to day life (e.g. family dinner, bedtime routines).
  • Weekly Connection Traditions. Similar to the Daily Connection Tradition, but done weekly. Could be a special Saturday morning breakfast or a weekly family game night.
  • Life Changes Traditions. These are traditions to celebrate big life changes or milestones in your family. These traditions can be something as simple as taking a yearly First Day of School picture or something a bit more profound like dedicating a new home.

Forensic Science

SKM has started learning about different forensic science methods. We have taken measurements of different parts of our bodies for Anthropemetry. Last week we did some chemical tests on different known powders to create a data base. We learnt how to identify if something was acidic or basic.

Hey guys its SKM here and we are talking about scrabble. Yesterday the whole class went to the hall to play a game of upsized scrabble.  Our class had a N, I, A, A, Q, R, T. We made 4 words and scored 36 points (Brodie helped keep track of the score). We were competing against all the other classes in our school. It was awesome fun. Well done team!

The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas

Posted by Creeper_Craft24 / ainslie | Posted in Inquiry, News and Notes, Reading, Writing | Posted on November 14, 2014

Nine-year old Bruno has a lot of things on his mind. Who is the ‘fury’? Why did he make them leave their nice home in Berlin t0 go to ‘Out-With’? And who are all the sad people in striped pyjamas on the other side of the fence? The grown-ups won’t explain so Bruno decides there is only one thing for it – he will have to explore this place alone. What he discovers is a new friend. A boy with the same birthday. A boy wearing striped pyjamas. But why can’t they ever play together? I gave this book 8 out of 10 stars!
