Week 4

This week Room 15 started our their science inquiry. We started brainstorming about what materials are found in our classroom, both natural and man-made. We then started collaborating together to create a slide show on these materials. The materials we came up with were wood, metal, plastic, wool, magnets and glass. The students have been working hard on researching these materials in preparation for their presentations! Check out the photo's below of our groups working together!

Week 3 - Bullyfree Week

How fast is this term going! Week 3 is already done and dusted. 

We had an extra special focus this week on kindness and building a bullying free environment. We had many discussions around this and what this means to us as both individuals and as a whole. As a result we created a "Kindness Korowai" showing how we belong and feel safe and valued both in class and at school. We also made some bullyfree hands listing all the things we can do to help others who are experiencing unkind or bullying behaviours. Check out the cool photo of our Kindness Korowai! 

To end our kindness week on a high note we celebrated with our buddy class. Look at our cool pictures below of Room 15 & Room 4 buddies!

Uniform Notice

Dear Parents/Caregivers 

The weather is starting to get colder and I have noticed that students are wearing footless tights under their shorts or skivvies under their school t-shirt. Please remember that items that are worn under students school uniform need to be navy blue. 

Kind regards,

Week 2

The week that was......

This week we had Stu come in and teach us some golf skills. We had such an awesome time learning how to hold a golf club correctly, how to hit the ball both softly and with a bit of force and also working together. We are lucky enough to have Stu come in every Wednesday to teach us! Check out the photos below!

Mathletics

Well done to everyone's efforts in mathletics this week. It is really impressive to see so many of you aiming high and reaching well above your required score of 1000 points. Well done! Also, congratulations to Kya for not only making it on to the leader board this week for her first time but for also being our Mathlete of the week! Second shout out to Brianna for her first time on the leader board. Top job everyone!

The first week of Term 2....


Welcome back to Term 2! We had a great first week back in Room 15 this week.
We started with the week by listening to our buddies talk about all the different things they got up to over the school break, we then used this as a platform for our writing! Check out our "Jandal" writing about where our feet took us in the holidays!


On Tuesday 2nd May we were lucky enough to experience the circus challenge that came to school. Clint demonstrated a range of different tricks and acts that even got the teachers involved! We were then lucky enough to learn how to do all sorts of exciting and difficult tricks ourselves such as spinning plates,  throwing fire sticks (without the fire) and human pyramids! Check out our photos below!
Lastly, well done to all of Room 15 for their efforts in Mathletics this week! I know most of you have sports and other commitments that takes up valuable time so it is really neat to see so many of you achieving many more points than needed on a weekly basis. Keep up the amazing work! We have a new mathlete in our top 3 this week- Well done Stazia!
Our mathletes for this week are:
