WHAT WE HAVE BEEN LEARNING
In Foundation we have been learning about different seasons, Autumn, Spring, Winter and Summer. We have also been learning how to count up to 100 and how to count up to 200. We have also been learning how to double some numbers.
Maths- We are learning what a fraction is. We have also learnt what a triad is. It is a word symbol and picture.
Literacy- We have been learning about homophones and that they are the same words, spelt differently with different meanings.
Religion- In religion we have learnt the story of the Good Samaritan and how the people that walked passed weren’t being very kind.
Maths- We are learning about money and how to add money to make a total. We are also learning how to count money.
Literacy- We have been learning how to summarise a text and find the main idea.
Genius Hour- We have been learning about rules and laws.
Writing - We have been learning to write a detailed story and how to create a plan to help you organise your ideas in your writing.
Maths - We are learning to design and draw a real zoo. The focus is recording different measurements.
FEAST OF THE ASSUMPTION
On Monday 15th of August the Year 4-6 students celebrated the Feast of the Assumption. The Feast of the Assumption is to celebrate when Mary rose up to heaven to be reunited with Jesus. We also celebrated Fr Hoangs last Mass with us. He will move to Camberwell Parish where he has to look after 5 schools! We hope he enjoys himself and learns a lot and can visit us as often as possible.
The 5/6 students and teachers are going to Coonawarra Camp. We will leave at 7:45 am on Monday 22nd and will come back Wednesday 24th approximately 5pm. The teachers will send out Skoolbag notes to let you know when we are nearly back at school. We will have cabins of up to 4-8 people in each cabin. Every parent would have been sent a list of things to bring to camp and we are all looking forward to it. If you would like to take a look at the website here is the link https://www.coonawarraresort.com.au/
PS. Mrs Sullivan and Tracey went and visited the camp last week and they said it looked great, but it was cold so don't forget to pack warm clothes!

A blast from the past.

NEWS FROM MRS SULLIVAN
I have to commend our Public Relation Team and how they have really made the fortnightly newsletter their own. They are coming up with the ideas, making time to interview teachers and students and then working together to write up all the information. Job well done team!
At the moment, we seem to have a few cases, but once again it is 1 or 2 cases at a time but in different classes. Eg Today (Thursday) 2 new cases one in 1/2 and one in 3/4 . We do not seem to have a whole class out within a couple of days of the first case like so many other schools have. At the moment different illnesses are having an impact on our children - we are hearing about fevers, colds, chest infections and gastro. Please take care and look after yourselves, it will be nice when Summer arrives and we can hopefully get rid of these viruses.
Our bike riders and scooters got a bit of a surprise this morning when they had to put their bikes and scooters into a temporary bike shed!
Steve is pulling down the bike shed today and we are going to get a new bike shed and sport shed within the next few weeks. That means we will say goodbye to the dreaded 'Shipping Container'!!!
We are very excited about these new buildings and cannot wait for them to be finished!
