Made in the Image of God

Today we read a story and showed the children the development of a baby from 1 month to 9 months. (For those with parental consent only)

The children had many, many questions. Some we weren’t able to answer as the content may have been not able to be answered at this year level OR we just didn’t know the answer!

Please have a talk with your child about what they learnt today and answer any further questions they might have.

Perhaps you could talk to them about the story of their birth.

We had a very captivated audience for the whole hour of learning.

Spring Fair

Our stall this year is the Gelati Stall – yum!

We would appreciate 2 people during each hour. Can you reply with what time you would be able to help and we will add you to our list.

Outdoor Education Day

Tomorrow the student’s will be participating in Outdoor Education Day.

Your child has chosen 4 activities to participate in during the day. They chose between Football, Ninja Warrior Course, Nature Art, Balloon Ping Pong, Fishing and Mosaic Art.

Could all children please wear their sport uniform for the day and if they could bring an old top from home if they are doing the art activities so they don’t get paint on their uniforms.

They will still need to bring their own recess and lunch, the canteen will be open for both eating times.

Casual Days and Shared lunch

Week 9, Friday September 22 – Bring a bag of lollies for Spring Fair and wear casual clothes.

Week 10, Friday September 29 – Wear RED or traditional clothing to celebrate the Moon Lantern Festival. We will have a SHARED LUNCH on this day. Please bring a small plate of food to share.

CHANGE OF DATE Week 1 of Term 4, Tuesday, October 17 – Wear casual clothes if you bring a plant for the Spring Fair

 

Thanks for your support

Class Novel

This term we are reading the novel Matilda.

This has created a great amount of interest in exploring different vocabulary used in the story as well as completing different activities once we have read a chapter.

Last week the students created an advertisement for a car. Some were a bargain for $500, some a little pricey at $2 million but the children enjoyed sharing with the class the different features of the car, creating a catchy slogan and also hashtags and their own website names. A lot of creativity was used.

This week we are writing acrostic poems for a character in the book as well as a poem about their own name and tomorrow we will be writing similes. I wonder how many children already know what a simile is!

Please check in with your child regularly about their learning!

Art

Our Art work for the past 2 weeks looks fantastic!

In Week 1 after learning about the First Fleet the students sketched a picture of one of the ships of the First Fleet.

This week after learning about the phases of the moon, we created some moon art which used blending paints to paint a grey colour for the moon and also using aquadhere to create craters for the moon.

I’m sure you’ll agree we have some amazing artists!

School Photos

Please mark on your calendars that School Photos will be held on Tuesday 22nd August.

Students will need to wear their full winter uniform on the day. 3/4SM will not be able to wear their sport uniform on the day.

Notes will be sent home tonight and forms need to be returned to the front office. If you would like your child to have a family photo, order forms can be collected from the office.
