Welcome to a beautiful Thursday. We have a busy day ahead as we prepare for Christmas Carols.
This morning our community celebrated Mass and the end of the 2019 year. We also remembered our wonderful year 6 students who will be graduating next week.
End of Year Mass
It has been a pleasure to see the writing development of all students this year. With the ingredients of encouragement, support, opportunity and a pinch of risk taking, the children have progressed and are all writers. Yes, there are different of stages of writing just as there are stages of physical growth and brain development, so well done boys and girls. The teachers are very, very proud of you all.
The students looked for sentence punctuation this morning, including capital letters, full stops and commas.
An array of activities were provided for the children to choose from, including: silly sentences, mixed-up sentences, sentence construction and sentences with high frequency words.

This afternoon the children worked in small groups and learned how to play a new number game. The students worked really well and next time some new rules will be added!!
Don’t forget that next Friday evening in Holy Family’s annual Christmas Carols. Please let us know if your child cannot attend. We will send out a note next week explaining what needs to be worn in regards to colours and costume. Thank you.
The students spent the morning working on their Rapunzel story maps. Some students added writing to their pictures and others worked on finishing their drawings. Mrs Papillo welcomed the new children transitioning to Holy Family from kindy this morning.
To begin with we shared the story Rapunzel, the third time we have read the story but this one was slightly different.
The children did some mindful drawing…
The students matched towers to numbers or rolled dice and recorded addition number sentences.

This morning we shared a different version and edition of the story Rapunzel.
With the story of Rapunzel in mind, the students were invited to draw the story and think about the events at the beginning, middle and end.

Today Mrs Cooymans and Mr Pearce hosted a sports assembly for the children who have represented the school at sport carnivals throughout the year. Also, the Book Fair colouring in competition winners were announced today and Subi from R1NS won a $20 voucher to spend at the Book Fair.

We continued our water investigations today:
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
This morning we read Pinocchio and searched for words that described Pinocchio, Geppetto and the Blue Fairy.
After using their puppets to retell the story the students were invited to choose a character and write a sentence about them.
Numeracy and Number activities
In literacy investigations, the students continued to make their puppets of the characters from the story of Pinocchio.
The students used their catapults to launch their flip tiles today. The students then measured the distance using their hands.
Design and Technology
This afternoon the students talked about strong shapes and we identified these shapes in an array of bridges. In groups, the children drew a bridge using their knowledge of shape and design. Next lesson will be to test their abilities by building a bridge than can bear a kilogram in weight.
Welcome to fabulous Friday everyone! Remember that tonight is our annual school disco in the hall from 6-7pm for reception, year 1 and 2 classes. Please come along and enjoy the music by DJ Bartold and DJ Stramare.
Mrs Crisp’s provocation this morning: find something the same, shorter and longer than a ruler.
A moment of Zen for Vincent!
After some carols singing we participated in Go Noddle fitness.
