Welcome to Week 6. It was so wonderful to see so many of you at the Disco last Wednesday. KM have been enjoying learning all about time during Mathematics, using the analogue clocks and learning about the hour and minute hands. In English we are learning about the book 'The Invisible Boy' and focusing on Imaginative writing. Please return all notes and payment for our two excursions to Hunter Valley Wildlife Park and the Pevan and Sarah Concert, as soon as possible. Have a fantastic week!
1O with Mrs Olsen
What a great week we had for Education Week and Book Week. We loved seeing visitors in our classroom and hoped you loved the activities across the school. Last week we read a book about a boy who could not hear, so he communicated with sign language. Perhaps 1O have taught you a word or 2 last week? In Mathematics we have been investigating volume and measuring and comparing!
1G with Miss Gilmour
Welcome to Week 6! We hope you enjoyed visiting our classroom for Education Week, it was great to have lots of parents/carers and family members pop in. In English, 1G have been doing some great Persuasive Writing as well as learning about the many different ways to spell the /er/ sound. We have been loving Geography this term, we even got to check out our houses on Google Maps. Don't forget to hand in your notes/money for our excursion next term. Have a great week everyone.

Happy Week 6 everyone! This term is going so fast and we are learning so much. Students are really enjoying our writing unit this term about the Gruffalo! We have been using our visualising skills to draw pictures of the Gruffalo. In Mathematics, we are learning all about 3D shapes and their properties. We have also been focusing on having a GROWTH MINDSET and having the power to believe in ourselves, using strategies to complete tricky activities! Have a beautiful week.

STAGE 2 NEWS
2C with Mrs Curry & Mrs Morgan
2C have stepped back into the past, finding out what the olden days were like in our novel, ‘Meet Ruby’. Many discussions have been had about the similarities and differences we have found while reading this book. Thank you to the students who have been completing their English homework each week. In Geography, we’ve been amazed by some of Mrs Morgan’s holiday photos of places that we have been learning about!
2V with Mrs middlebrook
WOW! Week 6 already! 2V students are connecting stories to the real world, exploring how the earth changes because of erosion, and having fun with shapes and symmetry. We have also been using maps to find which countries are close to Australia. On top of that, they're creating a cool dance routine by blending music and dance moves together. Our classroom is buzzing with creativity and learning!
2/3S with Ms Carter
Last week, 2/3S students were enthusiastic to learn about Australia's States and Territories in Geography lessons. We wondered why Parliament House was in the ACT. We explored interactive maps which allowed us to see the Indigenous boundaries from 1788 to a map of Australia today.

3P with Ms Palmowski
Welcome to Week 6! In English this week 3P are working on building strong arguments in their persuasive writing to persuade the audience. They are learning to make connections with a variety of texts to gain a deeper understanding of the text. In Mathematics students are learning about the properties of two-dimensional shapes and how these shapes can be manipulated. In CAPA we are investigating the elements of music and dance in performances and what makes a good performance.
3L with Mrs Long
Are we halfway through this term already? Just as well Mrs Long has a scooter because we are moving along soooooo fast! Last week 3L were preparing for some class debates. In Mathematics we are learning to calculate the area of regular and irregular shapes. In Geography we are studying the different biomes of the world, as a Geography teacher we used to call these the Natural Environments. The students have completed some interesting Information reports on the different biomes found throughout the world.
Library/STEM with Miss Donnelly
Thank you everyone who supported the Book Fair. It was incredible to watch so many students getting excited about the books they were buying. It was also incredible to see you all dressed up for the Book Parade and to talk to so many of you about the character you were dressed up as. If you stopped by the photo booth your photos will start to come out this week. Don't forget the Premier's Reading Challenge is about to end so enter your books.
Thank you to all parents/carers, family members and community members for visiting our school/classrooms last week. We hope you enjoyed visiting our classrooms and participating in our activities.
