Week 8

Welcome to week 8.
Today we were lucky enough to watch the dress rehearsal of the School Production, 'The Little Mermaid'.  What an awesome spectacle it was, so if you do not have tickets yet, please grab some from the shows Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights this week.

This week we will continue reading 'Birrung' and exploring the language used to help us as we move towards writing our narratives.  In Maths we are going back to multiplication as we explore and develop our division skills.  In Science we are exploring catapults and the forces used in these.

Homework this week is the same as last week.  I have assigned tasks in mathletics in place of the times table sheet.  The tasks will reinforce concepts that we are studying in maths lessons.  I have also assigned a book in reading eggs for the students to read.  

Finally, today I awarded the prizes for our photography competition that was judged by four independent judges.  Congratulations to Finn who was awarded third prize, while Jay came second to the eventual winner of our competition, Gabriela!  Congratulations also go to Sam and Amelie who were awarded encouragement prizes.  As I stressed to all students, the quality of the work they produced was sensational and they should be very proud of themselves.
