Every student will be making a poppy ready for Anzac Day next term. Each student will need a black button to attach to the middle of their poppy. Please send a black button to school with your child as soon as possible. If you have any extras that would be fabulous!
Students in 4F have been analysing poetry and will be presenting their chosen poem to the class this week. Please remind your child to practice their poem on the weekend so they are well prepared. Thanks for your support!
What a day! We were so blessed with beautiful weather. I could not have been prouder of our kids today - those who raced in the A events and those who participated in events to have fun and gain points for their house. Thank you to the parents that came (I know it's not always possible), and to Bailey's Dad who absolutely smashed it in the parent relay. Presentations will be made at assembly next week.
A big congratulations to Elle who is the 4F Star of the Week. Elle has an excellent attitude towards learning and is producing some fantastic work in both English and Maths. Elle even waited back after school on Friday to thank me for choosing her - fantastic manners as well!
Forms were sent home 2 weeks ago for our 'School Run 4 Fun'. This is a major fundraiser for the P&C.
Students raise 5 times more with online fundraising
It is super easy to set up an online fundraising page which will allow you to share amongst family and friends on Facebook and Twitter. Click on the picture to link directly to the fundraising page where kids can select their prize (which becomes their goal).
Today our Math focus lesson and rotations revolved around length. We discussed personal referents. 4F discovered that often our little finger is about 1cm wide so is a suitable personal referent when estimating in centimetres. When estimating in metres we used our strides and stepped it out. There was lots of hands on estimating and measuring today!
Congratulations to Aiden who is the 4F Star of the Week. Aiden is achieving great results in Maths and always seeks feedback to improve his learning. Amazingly awesome Aiden! Yes we have also started our Poetry Unit and have been looking at poetic devices and structual features of poetry including alliteration.
Our swimming day will now be on Friday for the next 3 weeks, followed by the swimming carnival in Week 9. We will travel to the pool at noon, (commencing this Friday) and return by 1.15pm in time for 2nd break.
