Dear Parents and Children,

It has been a short but productive week jam-packed of exciting learning.

First we were happy to celebrate both Jeremy and Lois’ Birthdays. The whole school signed a card and gathered to wish them a happy Birthday as they watched personalized video messages. we hope they each had a special day

Our plants are growing nicely thanks to the care and nurturing that the students are giving them. In groups the students had to research different subjects relating to plants and create a Powerpoint slideshow for our upcoming assembly on Monday. They have made exceptional presentations ranging from photosynthesis and life-cycles to plants around the world. Join us on Monday at 1:35 pm for their Assembly. They should practice their “Recycle Song” lyrics. You can get them by clicking here. They rounded off the IPC unit “Green Fingers”by building a self- watering planter from recycled plastic bottles.

In English we looked at the Anthony Browne story “Gorilla” and learned about coordinating connectives “and”, “but” and “or” for our grammar. We also discussed the school values, why they are important and what they mean to us. The students created wonderful spray-diagrams illustrating their understanding of the HFS core values. In Math we went further with our multiplication and division skills by creating “Halving Chains”. The students also learned about using the grid method for multiplication.

We had a fantastic time on our “Green Day” trip to clean up Daewangam Park today. I am so proud that the students worked so hard collecting litter from that beautiful area that we all enjoy. It was a lot of walking but an enjoyable time was had by all. they definitely earned their ice cream treats.

I am pleased that the students ordered so many tickets for the Spring Day. I look forward to seeing them there tomorrow.

Due to the Daewangam park cleanup taking a little longer than expected homework will be sent out on Monday. Have a great weekend and I will see you at the PTA Spring Day.

Mr Kearney
