Week 1 Thursday

 

It’s been a busy week as we prepare for the Spring Fair. Thankyou for everyone’s donations of plants and gold coins.

 

Please please let us know if you can spare a little time on Sunday at the fair to help out on a stall. These community events are only successful as a result of wonderful people who volunteer their time. Many hands make light work.

A reminder that ride passes are still available from the front office and are excellent value.

 

Today in library we read a book called the Little Stowaway.

France. Winter. 1918. The First World War is over. An brave and determined little French orphan, Honore, wanders through the snow, cold and hungry and lost. When he stumbles on the Australian Flying Corps and meets airman, Tim Tovell, his life is changed forever. This is a story of a remarkable little stowaway and his journey to his new home in Australia

 

Here are some questions the children had after we had read.

Numeracy:

This week in Numeracy we have been investigating 2D and 3D shape as well as introducing angles. Today the students constructed their own angle comparison tool. Our goal is to classify and sort angles according to their size relative to a 90degree (right) angle.

Here are some photos of us locating and identifying angles in the classroom:

STEM

This term we are looking forward to learning more about the Sphero robots. At the moment we are familiarising ourselves with the robots and working towards using command blocks to code their actions.

Here are a few pics

 

A reminder that tomorrow is a pupil free day.

 

See you on Sunday at the Spring Fair.

 

In Kindness,

Mrs Hawkes and Mr Elder
