Dining Hall Experience- our first one!

After a wonderful assembly put on by 5/6 ND NB what better way to celebrate but to have a dining hall experience.

Thanks to Susan and Sue in the canteen who made us some delicious pizza, salad and for dessert; cake and ice cream!

It was delicious and the children were great in setting up, dining and cleaning up afterwards. Well done today 5/6s!

A special thanks to Shylah, Shristi, Patience, Naomi for serving the food. Destiny, Marli, Cecilia, Bailey and Asher for helping to set up.

Dining Hall/Assembly

This year the children will have two dining hall experiences per term. THIS FRIDAY, students will be fed a wholesome lunch whilst having the experience of eating a hot meal together as a class community. We aim to set this up as a long table lunch where each child will have their own place setting. The Dining Hall experience will give children the opportunity to build independent skills when serving them self as well as learning table manners. Please note that there is no charge to families for this service.

Date: FRIDAY 28th February 2020 (Week 5)

Lunch Menu

  • Pizza
  • Salad

What students need to bring FRIDAY:

This will be a celebration for all the hard work put into the assembly this week.

A reminder to please come and join us in the hall on Friday at 9am for Our assembly with an Ecology focus.

Mathematics- whole number operations- rounding off numbers

The use of number lines is very important to build students’ sense of number and place value when rounding. some students preferred to simply look the the number in the place value column to be rounded and seeing if the digit to the right is a 5 or higher.

Ash Wednesday …

Today our school celebrated Ash Wednesday mass. Ash Wednesday is the start of the Lenten season and signifies Jesus’ time in the desert before Holy Week. when we returned to class we received the ashes upon our foreheads… ‘Turn away from sin and be faithful to the Gospel’…..

Our Rube Goldberg machines are beginning to come alive!

Now students are completing their designs which they may amend along the way and beginning to construct their Rube- Goldberg machines. There is a lot of trying, failing, re-designing and re-making… its all about resilience! Here’s some photos of our progress…..
