Welcome back to Term 3

I hope you all had a restful two weeks. The weather was great for lots of sleep ins and pyjama days! It’s another busy term for us with lots happening. Our classroom is being painted during weeks 1 and 2 of this term and we will be housed in House 6AS for this time. Janine Baker (a pre-service teacher) will be with us for the first four weeks of this term. If you check on the Literacy, Numeracy and Inquiry pages for more information on our focus for this term.

The big events for this term are Book Week, Book Fair, Book Week assembly, Splash Theatre and a gymnastic programme for P.E. For the Book Week assembly in Week 5, Years 3 to 7 can wear hat related to a character from a book. So dig out the craft box and get creative!

We now have spiny leaf insects in our class for the rest of the year. I will bring them in once we move back to our class. Our tadpoles have grown and to date we have 12 fully grown frogs…most of which we’ve given to Cherie, our friendly SSO, to house in her pond!

We are looking forward to another exciting and productive term.

End of Term

Wow, its end of term already! We have had a busy and eventful term. Lots of us are recovering from the sniffles and we are looking forward to sleep-ins over the holidays.We had lots of exciting learning happening and our class blog is one of them. Please bear with me while I try to find my way through cyberspace. I will endeavour to put up posts at least once a week. Currently, we will only be able to post messages until all the paperwork is completed to publish photos of students work or learning. I have a pre-service teacher, Janine Baker, who was on an observation visit this week and will be in class for 4 weeks of next term.

Beginning next term, I intend starting a social program called  “Fill your bucket”. It is a tangible program for students to see that their actions affect others as well as themselves. If you click on the Youtube link for “Fill your Bucket” you will be able to view the online story that underpins this concepts. It would be great if parents reinforce this concept at home.

Reports were handed out on Wednesday 3/07. Don’t forget early dismissal on Friday at 14h15. Have a restful holiday. I’m looking forward to an enthusiastic and energised term3.
