Thinking Routines

Boys have been engaged in some Thinking Routines in the Library this week. Year 6 participated in a Chalk-Talk Thinking Routine where they looked at images that had been placed on large pieces of paper. They were required to write comments or ask questions on the paper about these pictures. This was an activity that was to be done without speaking, as the pen was the means of communication. Boys moved around four tables to look at the image and respond to other comments or write their own questions. This was done as a provocation before analysing the Australian Lamb commercial that was aired in January. The four pictures in the provocation were significant in order to make meaning from the Ad. (Donald Trump’s Wall in Mexico; Premiers of Australia; Meat cooking on a BBQ; Scott Morrison in tropical attire) The students were analysing how their beliefs and values are influenced by the media. Are we to believe that eating lamb on Australia day will unite our country? The Australian Lamb Ad, Make Lamb, not Walls;  can be found here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCIMYjqWxwA

Scholastic book club

This week the first Scholastic Book Club catalogue of the year was distributed to students. Orders can be placed online using the LOOP payment system and must be placed by the 15th of February. Purchasing books from the Scholastic Book Club is not only great for families as they offer popular titles at great prices, but also for the school as we receive a portion of the sales as credit to use towards purchasing resources for our library and classrooms. The current catalogue has some fantastic titles for all ages.

If you need any assistance with placing an order please contact us at jslibrary@trinity.nsw.edu.au
