VCOP – Vocabulary, Connectives, Openers and Punctuation

Isabelle has been learning all about Vocabulary, Connectives, Openers and Punctuation this term as part of her Literacy circulam.

They put on a fabulous end of year show complete with a song to the tune of Village People’s YMCA – VCOP.  FANTASTIC!!

She had 1 line to say and also to introduce the VCOP song with Ava.  (2.38 minutes long.)

It was a fun show and a great showcase of talent across the whole class.

As both children get ready to finish the school year, they have just been informed of their classes for next year.  Isabelle will be moving into 4B with her new teacher Mrs Sinclair and Oliver is moving into Year 1 with Mrs Finan.  About a month ago all the children were asked to complete “top 5 friends list” for consideration of class placement for next year.    Both of my children are happy that they got 3 out of their 5 for classmates for 2013/14!

Last Thursday and Friday were transition days for their new teachers and classes.  Thank goodness they came home very happy to come back after the summer holidays as they liked their new teachers!  This is a good thing as their current teachers are FANTASTIC and have managed to inspire them both to be the best that they can be, work hard, love learning and have fun while doing all of that!
