EARLY STAGE 1 & STAGE 1 NEWS
km with miss mowbray
And we’ve made it to the final week of Term 3. I can’t believe we only have one term left of Kindergarten. KM have been focusing on our long vowel sounds in the past few weeks and this week we are learning all about the long vowel ‘u’. We are learning about Patterns in Maths this week. Don’t forget our two excursions are coming up in next term so all notes and money need to be returned this week. Have a fantastic, fun, and safe holiday! See you all in Term 4!
1O with Mrs Olsen
What a huge term of learning we have just had. As we head to the holidays, I hope 1O students remember to find a favourite spot and sit with a book and keep practicing their reading skills. As we say in 1O, the more we practice the better we get! I hope you all have a happy holiday period and I will see you all in a couple of weeks ready for Term 4!
1G with Miss Gilmour
Week 10, we made it! 1G have all worked super hard this term and definitely deserve a relaxing holiday. Don't forget to still do your reading each night though. There is lots to look forward to next term including our excursion, the musical and so much more! Stay safe everyone. See you on the 9th October 🙂
release from face to face with Miss gregory
Welcome to Week 10! The term has gone so fast. 1G have been learning all about volume and how we can measure and compare different objects. They enjoyed doing hands-on water activities and comparing how much is needed for different containers. Barrangga and Dhurrumiri have enjoyed playing with the Bee Bots and ipads. They have been learning how to code and how it makes objects move. Enjoy the holidays and be safe!

2C with Mrs Curry & Mrs Morgan
After another busy term, I hope everyone can get outside to play and enjoy some beautiful Spring weather during the school holidays. Looking forward to hearing about the exciting adventures 2C have had when they return to school. Don’t forget to also spend time reading. Don’t have a good book? Take a trip to the Dungog Library and borrow one!
2V with Mrs middlebrook
2V has been on an incredible learning journey this term, working tirelessly to explore the fascinating world around us. We've delved into the captivating realm of informative texts, diving deep into the lives and landscapes of our Australian neighbours. From the vibrant cities to the awe-inspiring outback and islands, we've uncovered stories and facts that have broadened our horizons. But our exploration didn't stop there! In the world of Science, we embarked on a thrilling adventure through the wonders of erosion. Our hands-on experiments allowed us to witness the power of nature firsthand, as we watched landscapes transform before our eyes. And as for Mathematics, well, it turns out that angles are everywhere! From the classroom to the playground, we've been on a quest to discover the secrets of angles in our everyday surroundings. 2V has truly been a class of eager learners, and we can't wait to see where our curiosity will take us in Term 4. Wishing everyone a joyful and restful holiday!
2/3S with Ms Carter
Students have been excitedly combining their persuasive and informative writing skills to create a text about an Australian island holiday destination. In Mathematics students engaged in hands-on activities creating 3D objects. This term has been filled with growth and learning and now it's time for a well-deserved break. I hope you all have a fun and restful holiday.
