Dear Parents and Children,
We are approaching the half-way mark of Term 3 as week 5 comes to an end. The students had a productive week completing a number of exciting learning-filled activities.
The students were very excited to plant their own lettuce plants. Some have already sprouted small seedlings which made the students very happy. It will be fun to watch the plants grow as the children tend to them over the coming weeks. We took advantage of the warm sunny weather and worked outside looking for minibeasts around the school grounds. We also started conducting an experiment questioning whether plants need light to grow. The results so far are surprising and we shall see how it develops.
In English the year 1-2’s began planning their fantasy stories in line with the works of John Burningham that we have been reading in class. They produced vivid character and setting descriptions to get ready to write their final drafts next week. The students also wrote letters to my niece, Abigail, in South Africa. She is the same age and will enjoy receiving the letters and writing back in the coming weeks.
In Math we learned different strategies for multiplication and division such as using arrays and a number line and started applying them to word problems. The students finished off their Google slide shows in I.T class and in P.E. the students practiced their football and basketball dribbling and shooting.
Next week will be a short week with no school on Monday or Tuesday. We hope everyone enjoys the long weekend. For Mr. Kearney’s class, If your child reads a book please get them to do a short book review.
Have a great weekend.
Mr. Kearney and Ms. You
