2021 Term 3 Week 2
The start of Term 3 has been busy with additional requirements for families and staff regarding COVID. Just a reminder to wear a face mask when entering the school grounds, sign in with Service NSW and the school's app and avoid visiting the school if you are unwell.
The introduction of the canteen app in Term 2 was a huge success with many families utilising it. The canteen always welcomes new volunteers. If you would like to become a canteen volunteer please email the school and your details will be passed on to the canteen manager.
Parents from our school community have been invited to participate in a survey investigating what parents think about the dentist, and what they know about children and the dentist. This research is being conducted by Cara Barone as part of her Bachelor of Psychological Science with Honours, at Southern Cross University. Further information regarding the survery, including the link, can be found in the flyer below.
Year 1 ended Term 2 with a send off party for our class mate Ella. This was a great experience as this term in stage 1 English, we are learning about procedures and will be involved in all things 'party related'.
At the end of Term 2, Year 6 students 'turned' into teachers and visited our classroom to read picture books and teach us about them. The Year 6 students had even created us a worksheet or questions to complete.
Last term in maths we were learning about positions and directions. This was a very exciting and challenging experience especially when we used what we had learnt to program the BeeBots. Year 2 created a map of the classroom, and then a model of our room using lego.
In Mathematics this term Year 1 has been looking at 2D shapes and learning about their features. We have discovered that Indigenous people use lots of 2D shapes to tell stories within their artworks. This lined up nicely with celebrating NAIDOC week.
Year 2 used the BeeBots in their first week back of Term 3. We are learning about full turns, half turns and quarter turns in a clockwise and anticlockwise direction. We programmed the BeeBots to move around on a big piece of paper.
In Religion, Year 1 has been learning all about the things in our lives that are precious and considered treasures. We are now learning about many of Jesus’ stories (parables) such as ‘The Treasure and the Pearl’, ‘Parable of the Yeast’, ‘The story of Joseph’ and ‘Moses and the Burning Bush’.
Year 2 is currently learning about God’s goodness. In this unit, we are looking at different Saints and the 10 Commandments.
On Wednesday the 14th July we had our 'Footy and Fairy' dress up day. We had a great time dressing up and eating fairy bread and meat pies. Go the Blues!! Well done to NSW for winning the State of Origin for 2021.
Continuing with the party theme this term, we are learning about and experiencing all types of dances in Creative and Practical Arts. We are also lucky to have Ashley Albert teaching us some gymnastics skills on a Wednesday for PE.
