We kick-started the day with Numeracy and the students continued to work on their Measurement challenges. All students should have progressed to their second Workshop task by now, as both of these pieces of work will be due on Friday.

Fitness was our ‘Socki’ game, which is a hybrid of soccer and hockey. After splitting the classes into 8 teams last week, games resumed across our two courts. Teams that hadn’t played each other last week had the opportunity today and scores were once again kept and tallied.  Next week will be our last round before the ‘Play Offs’ begin.

Let the fun begin!

After a hot and sweaty time in the Hall, students came back and ate fruit, whilst listening to the complete version of ‘The Rabbits’. This time they heard the words of John Marsden and used them to make sense of the entire story. They then set about responding to a series of questions based on the text, using their inferencing skills. We won’t publish responses yet, as students will have more time this week to complete all questions.

In Library today, both classes read the second of the Children’s Book Council Award shortlisted books. It was called ‘A Walk in the Bush’ by Gwyn Perkins. 5HN preferred ‘The Great Rabbit Chase’ over this weeks’ text, as the illustrations were far more detailed and the storyline more engaging.

Please look out for 3 notes that have been sent home tonight:

  1. 5HN and DP Excursion consent form.
  2. School Photo payment form
  3. Made in the Image of God (MITIOG) communication

If you are able to assist us on our excursion to the Art Gallery of SA and the Museum on Friday, 10th of August (Week 3), please let us know in person or via email. A current Police and Catholic Education Check will be required.

Thanks everyone and see you tomorrow!
