STAWELL - Students at St Patrick's Primary School participated in a number of activities as part of National Literacy and Numeracy week.
The preps at the school were involved in a rubbish project that involved collecting, classifying and counting the amount of rubbish in the classroom.
After they had counted the materials and divided them into where they should go, the numbers that were recorded were used to create graphs for maths class.
In another activity children participated in a poem in your pocket exercise where they created a collection of poems.
Poetry styles included acrostics, haikus and two line poems.
The students were then encouraged to share their written creations with one another in English class and at recess and lunch time.
National Literacy and Numeracy Week is held every year and is a collaborative approach by all governments and school communities to highlight the importance of literacy and numeracy skills for all children and young people, with a focus on school-aged children.
The week aims to recognise locally the achievements of students and the work of teachers, parents and members of the community who support young people to develop stronger literacy and numeracy skills.
