Today your child (eldest) should have received a note regarding Mission Day activities and details.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
For our stall we will be making super hero lollipops and fruit loop necklaces. We would welcome any donations of Chuppa Chups or Fruitloops that you would like to make by Thursday.
It should be a great day.
Catherine House visit: Today we were visited by two very inspiring women from Catherine House. As the children heard the house is a safe place for homeless women. On reflection we were all in awe of the bravery of one woman who shared her story of how she found herself living at Catherine House and relying on the assistance of those who work there and the volunteers that contribute. We are very much looking forward to raising funds for this worthwhile cause on Friday.
Hot off the press: we are working hard in class at the moment adding the final touches to our stories for publishing. We cannot wait to share these masterpieces with you.
Holes: As a class we have been sharing the novel Holes by Louis Sacchar. We are so close to the end and finding every opportunity to read a few more pages hanging off every last bit of the story as we reach the conclusion. Look out for a note coming home soon seeking permission for the students to watch the movie as a great way to link written and visual texts. PS if anyone owns a copy of this DVD we would love to borrow it !
We have been very lucky to have Miss Hassan (student teacher) working with us the past few weeks and are very much enjoying having her teaching and leading our lessons as she completes her final few weeks of placement. We also have Mrs Baldock with us in Mr Murray’s absence.
We look forward to a busy week of learning, sharing and fundraising!
Please note cafe will be open for Mission Day on Friday afternoon.
Mrs Hawkes, Miss Hassan, Mr Murray
PS. Mr Murray we miss you already !
