Cooking with our buddies

As we prepare for our Moon Lantern Festival assembly in Week 10, 5/6PA paired up with our buddies from R/1JM to prepare and cook fried rice together.  We discussed the ingredients and utensils needed, the cooking method and the safety precautions when using a wok on the stove and the microwave rice cooker.  We shared a delicious meal together!

What an amazing time we all had at camp last week!  So many fun and exciting activities and things to learn about the Murray river.  Some activities  were: the yabbie farm, river cruise, trailer ride, archery, sheep shearing, cave tour, acro gym and the almond farm. We learned a lot and had such a great time.  More photos to follow…

Hi everyone,


We will be having a SHARED LUNCH in our classrooms this Friday 9th June to farewell our student teacher Ms McCabe.

As this will be the students’ lunch, we advise to bring along a savoury dish to share.  If you are unable to, we are happy for you to bring in something sweet.

If you will be providing any hot food, please bring it to our classroom by 11:45am as we will be starting the shared lunch at 12pm.

Please pre-cut any food that requires to be cut and label all trays or dishes so we can then return them to you.

Years 3 and 5 NAPLAN

Today we began the first of three days where our Year 3 and 5 students are taking part in the National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN).


Students have taken part in the Language Conventions and Writing components today.

Tomorrow Years 3 and 5 students from our classes will take part in the Reading component.

Thursday will be the Numeracy component.


We have talked to students about giving it their best, reading questions carefully and that the NAPLAN is simply a snapshot of their progress this year.  If your child was away today or will be away tomorrow or Thursday, a catch up for the NAPLAN has been organised for this FRIDAY 12th MAY.

What is prayer?

In Religion over the past week we have been discussing a few focus questions:


What is prayer?

Why do we pray?


First we read the text ‘Can I Pray With My Eyes Open?’ as a whole class


As a class we discussed our thoughts about these questions.  Here are our responses:


Students were then able to write their own prayers in order to create a collated book of class prayers to refer to when we lead in prayer in our classroom each day
