Week 3 term 4

We continued to work on our speeches  and learnt how to make powerful introductions  and use super sentence starters this week.  Some children are well on the way while others are lagging behind. This is a real challenge.

In the earthquake class for topic we did some art which will visually illustrate the movement of the Earth's tectonic plates. Other classes were making barometers and mentos and coke fountains. We ended the week with a fun science experiment investigating how we taste food. It is always fun when there are lollies involved!

We are developing our knowledge and application of measurement, learning how to calculate and measure perimeter and also area. 

Fortunately, the weather was kind today so we were able to have another PE session in either hockey, soccer or Rippa, and are looking forward to tournaments on Tuesday and Thursday. 

Thank you to all those parents who promptly returned forms and payment. There are still a few outstanding, however.

Thanks also for returning Museum trip slips quickly. 

We are looking forward to our classroom interactive session with the Tread Lightly caravan which rolled into school this afternoon. Ms Sims took the class on Thursday afternoon and had the students making origami seed pots in preparation for the visit.

Well done to the girls this week for knocking the boys off the Mathletics ladder this week. Kathleen, Stella and  Katelyn  took out the honours. Go Girls!
Jayden was our Star of the Week and Maren our Player of the Week for being so switched on about knowing his next steps in learning  and being able to articulate them clearly and for being a valued class member. Happy birthday to Jesse today.
