Olympic Games Morning – Tuesday 16th August

On Tuesday Mr Randall along with some Parent & Friend helpers (thank you for those parents – we always appreciate the assistance we receive) organised and ran an ‘Olympic Games Morning’ to compliment all the work that has been done within the classrooms.

P – 2 spent 9 -11 am participating in lots of different activities and 3/4 9-10 am and 5/6 10-11 am participating in different activities. They rotated through activities around the school including medal making, relay races and decorating donuts in Olympic colours.

There was lots of fun had by all!

Olympics in the Preps

Olympics in the Preps

Throughout the Olympic Games the Preps have immersed their learning to include all things Olympics. Below are some photos showing activities being completed with an Olympic focus. Students are really enjoying following their table country during these Olympics.

In addition, students are;

  • Sounding out Olympic themed words using THRASS
  • Developing fine motor skills when creating their own Olympic Rings
  • Developing an understanding of simple tally boards as we follow five countries
  • Design personal athlete uniforms.

Classroom Library

​As you all know we are moving our library into the classrooms as we are expecting the library to be demolished during the September school holidays (to the best of our knowledge at this time).

The students are very excited about having the books in their rooms! We would like to send out a massive thank you to our wonderful volunteers Jo, Norma and Terri for all the work they have done packing the books and dividing them into the classrooms. All of your efforts are greatly appreciated by our staff and students.

Welcome Back to Term 3

Welcome back to term 3 on this windy day! We trust everyone had a lovely break.

Just a few reminders for this term – 

Monday 25th July – CURRICULUM DAY – no school for students

Thursday 25th August & Tuesday 30th August – Parent / Teacher interviews 2-7pm  (students finish at 2pm)

 

Please note the calendar on SENTRAL is the best place to keep up to date with events. 

Year 3/4

On the first day back next term (July 11th) we will be having the students complete a task about their holidays. We would love it if the students could please bring in a couple of photos representing their holiday that could be stuck in their Writer’s Notebook. This does not mean the students necessarily need to have gone anywhere special, just a representation of some things they did.

Thank you.
