Green Room has been doing great work throughout this year. Their handwriting has improved out of sight, along with their reading. Students have been doing a great job with counting with some of them learning to count by 2's,5's and 10's. Students have been having a lot of fun completing craft activities for their themes of 'The beach" and 'Dinosaurs'. Outside of their work students had a great time at the interschool sports day and did a great job.

Welcome to another year of teaching and learning in the Red Group. We have lots of activities planned for the year including focused literacy instruction and specialist science and health classes. The children have settled quickly into a new routine and are working very well together as a group. We look forward to working together to achieve some good work.

Wow! Another jam-packed term has passed. The students of Hamilton SDS participated in a cross country running event in Warrnambool. Every student tried their absolute best, running through the rain and mud. Great effort to those who ran the whole 3km track and those who tried their hardest at the 1.5km event. A fantastic all round effort! Have a great term break.

This semester, for our humanities focus, the students from the Orange room have been investigating natural disasters. Our current disaster magnifying glass is focused upon tornadoes. Yesterday we spent some time making water spouts! This was great fun…until we sprang a leak in our sticky tape!

Orange room had a fantastic time on camp last week! We spent three days in Mt Gambier, travelling to Naracoorte for half a day also. We went bowling, had a tour of the Blue Lake, visited the wildlife park and Lady Nelson information centre, hiked to a very steep tower, watched a movie, went out for dinner and ate spectacular afternoon teas! We also went caving in the Naracoorte Caves and stayed at the Old Mt Gambier Goal! This was a bit scary but very cool at the same time. The students of Orange room showed how well they are developing their life skills and take care of each other.

Yesterday Orange group went on an excursion to Tower Hill. We have been learning about volcanoes and wanted to make our learning authentic. We visited the information centre, took a scenic drive, walked the Lava Tongue Boardwalk and cooked our own BBQ lunch. We had to be very careful though because the emus wanted to eat our lunch!

Term One in Blue Room started off very smoothly, in a brand new classroom with a new teacher to Hamilton Special Developmental School. Students worked through a number of Literacy and Numeracy activities, including focusing on Poetry in Literacy and Time and Money tasks in Numeracy. Our theme work for this term was Animals and students independently researched an animal of their choosing, wrote an Information Report (text type) based on their research and then gave a short speech to the class on what they found out! Whilst this was a little nerve-racking for some, the four students who did give a speech to the class did an exceptional job!
