Term 4 - Oaklands' School CARE VALUES

I show the Community  value when I am being nice to others and put my rubbish in the bin.

I use the  Active Thinking value when I want to talk and put my hand up and ask for help when I need it.

I demonstrate the Respect value when I pick up the mess that I have made and listen quietly.

I show the  Excellence value when I do my best work.


These are some of the things I think a good reader does:

  • They read fluently
  • They re-read and fix up their mistakes
  • They stop when they get to a full stop
  • They use the picture to help work out words
