Thank you to our buddies from 2IB & 2TD for a wonderful year together. We gave them our gifts and cards today and then played some board games together.
Literacy Writing Prompts
Today the children of 4RG got to make their own icing and then used it to decorate a gingerbread cookie. This came about after the children loved our last home economic activity where we made little gingerbread houses using ordinary biscuits.
Merry Christmas from Mrs. Giannakakis
I can’t believe we are only 2 days away from the end of the school year. It’s that time of the year where families begin to finish their school days and head off for holidays so I am taking the opportunity to say my thanks and well wishes.
I have had such a wonderful year teaching, learning and growing with 4RG and time has flown! Thank you to every child that was apart of 4RG and to our parents and caregivers who supported us through the highs and lows, every excursion, class celebration, homework and much more. Without the support from you, we wouldn’t be able to flourish.
I have loved working with every child and wish all the children and families a happy and safe break. For those moving on, I wish you all the best on your new journey and hope we can stay in touch. For those who will be taking a break and then returning to HFCS, please keep dropping in next year and say hello. It is always so lovely seeing past students and families stopping to say hello.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
In kindness, Mrs Giannakakis

Farewell Party for Mia, Maddy, Thien, Thinh, Aditi and Anshika!
Today our class had a farewell surprise party to honour our class members who will be moving to a new school next year. Thank you to the families who brought a plate of food to share. It was a lovely afternoon celebrating every child, especially those that will be moving on.
Have a look at Taihya, Finn and Lincoln’s projects on natural disasters. They used their 100 languages and love of ICT to create a ‘weather report’ project.
Anshika did a poster for her two topics ‘Bush Fire’ and ‘Tsunami’.
Today we explored the idea of symmetry. Children created as many objects/shapes with symmetry as they could.
Evie found lots of symmetrical objects in our classroom including her face!
After exploring some religious Christmas symbols, the children were invited to use their 100 languages to give their Year 2 buddy a Christmas present. We will present these to our buddies this week.
Thank you to the children who have started to submit their term 4 writer’s notebook.
Making gingerbread inspired houses using biscuits, lollies and icing!

Literacy Christmas Provocations
Welcome to Jay Jay’s Christmas Cafe!
The children from 4RG asked if we could invite other ‘customers’ from different classes and so we did and business was BOOMING! Have a look a how busy the restaurant is now. The owners started a nail salon joined to the shop to cater to the large numbers.
Some of our visitors came from REQ, 6/7MS, 6/7NB, 1EC, 2IB AND 2TD. Thank you to these ‘customers’ for playing with us!
Kaiden: “I made a gingerbread house and it has beads for decoration, a garden. The garden has gummy bears growing. It has a waterfall at the front. A pathway for people to lead them to the door. I built it by cardboard”.
