Yay! It’s almost the end of Term 2!  We had a fantastic time making and eating our frog in the pond for our shared experience. We continue with learning our common words and reading our books independently.  We have been looking at the craft of writing exploring texts from the authors Aaron Blabey and Mem Fox and making our own imaginative texts.  We have continued with addition focussing on joining two groups together to determine how many altogether.   We had a great final session of Science this week with students sharing their toy creations that had a push or pull feature.  


Only 5 sleeps until our Zoo excursion!!  We are so excited to be going on this excursion together and look forward to a great sunny day out. 


Thanks everyone for a great Term 2 and hope you have a restful holiday. 


Kind regards,

Allie Harrison, Elyce Munnecke & Alarna Creed

Level 1/2

What a wonderful and busy term it has been! The students have worked so hard and have done such an amazing job of completing their assessments and learning tasks. 


The students have been working hard at reading poetry and practising their fluency. This tied in well with writing, as they have been writing their own incredible poems! They have looked at diamante, cinquain, acrostic and free verse poems, and have been investigating the language involved in them. 


Students have also been learning various subtraction strategies and playing hands-on games to practise them. They are also learning about how subtraction ties in with addition. 


Portfolios will be sent home next week and reports will be going live. We are thoroughly impressed with the dedication and hard work the students have put into their learning this semester, and they should all be proud of themselves! 


Have a wonderful & safe holidays!


Kind regards,

Daena Hailey, Kayla Hartrick, Llinos Poole, Mykaela Oakley & Tim Wilson

Term 2 has been going so fast! Only 1 week left before the mid year school holidays. 


In Reading, we have been busy during our Book Study on the BFG finalising reading the book, creating Movie posters and making Wanted posters of the giants. Next week we will be watching the BFG movie to finish of our studies on the text.  


In Writing students began a passion project. They could select a text type and topic of choice and were given time to write something that they are passionate about. They will continue this for the rest of the term.


This week in Maths students have started looking at the topic of Angles. Students have been learning about different types of angles and took pictures of different angles they could see around the classroom. 


Reports for Semester 1 will be going live next week. Students have worked really hard this year and we are so proud of their results. After two years of disrupted learning it has been great to have a normal start to the year. 




Coming up... 

  • Wednesday the 22nd of June Semester Reports go live to parents.
  • Portfolios will go home with completed learning tasks for Semester 1.

Round robin 

Last week on Friday we had interschool round robin. The netballers all did very well, the A team made it to the finals and won. The T-Ball team didn’t make it to the finals but came third place. The soccer team won two games but lost one, and our football team won one of the football games. We all had fun and that’s what matters.

Information Reports

In Art we are making sculptures of African animals and in Writing, we are also learning about African animals and making information reports. Some people made posters and others chose to make flip books or PowerPoint presentations. 


Storyathon Writing

Also, in some writing sessions we have been working on Storyathon which is an online challenge where you have to write a short story with exactly One Hundred words. It was a little challenging for some, but we got through it, and we are all proud of our efforts. Next, we get to vote on our favourites!

Regional Cross Country 

Archer P, one of our Grade Six students made it into Regional Cross Country. We are all so proud of him! What an amazing achievement!
