We have been looking at various things in this subject. Some weeks we look at social skills like bucket filling, Beautiful Oops and changing our mind set. You can see photos of these in the "have you filled your bucket?" section of the webpage.

So we started with Carbon Footprints.
We watched a video on youtube called Carbon Monster which helped us to understand what a carbon footprint is, and how we can increase or shrink it by what we do everyday.
Our footprints are actually on the ceiling of our classroom. The ones in green are ways we can shrink our footprints by reducing our electricity use, walking short distances, saving water and recycling. Unfortunately, the orange ones are carbon monsters! They are ways we increase our carbon footprint like driving everywhere, wasting water, having many televisions on at the same time and wasting paper.
We have been spending some time in class, to develop a better understanding of what good sportsmanship looks like. Many of us could say what it was but when it came to demonstrating it we were a little lost. We decided that our class challenge is to show good sportsman ship on the playground and in the classroom. So when our new class councillor was announced everyone showed good sportsmanship by congratulating them. The candidates that missed out took the loss in their stride and shared their joy for the winner. This was a great demonstration of GOOD sportsmanship.
I wonder how many things you can think of that would be considered GOOD sportsmanship?
