    Year 1/2 What a fantastic first week back we had. The students in the 1/2 class have done some beautiful paintings which are being used to cover Spelling, Journal and Writing books. We have settled into the classroom well and we have been working hard all day. This morning we began our week of Spelling. This week we are focussing on the sound ‘b’ as in ball, balloon and bubble. The Year 1 students have done such a great job writing out all of their spelling words into their books! Homework is going home this week with students having a spelling list to complete each night, and a maths page that relates to what we did for maths last week in class. Thank you to those students who were able to bring in an old shirt for painting. If you have an old shirt at home that we could use as a paint shirt, please send it in with your child’s name on it.

    Year 3/4 What a great start to the school year Year 3/4 had last week. I was super impressed and congratulated the class on their behaviour and attitude. I’ll get those Red Slips out this week! In our first art lesson, we created some ‘Summer Sun’ artwork, which will brighten up the classroom. We have been settling into new routines and this week we start our Spelling in class and also for Homework. This week we will focus on words with “b” or “bb”. In Maths we are looking at place value which will lead onto addition and sub- traction algorithms. Each day we practise our times tables in our maths games. I will also send home a brief class information note this week. Have a great week!

    Year 5/6 In Literacy during week 2 we are going to be focusing on creative writing and painting a picture in the reader’s mind by using descriptive language. This week the students will be taught about the structure of a narrative as well using a story starter to help them create an exciting story. Once completed the students will use the computers to publish their stories. For spelling we are focusing on the “B”; B as in ball and Bb as in bubble. The first sound for our spelling is a simple sound to get the students used to the senior primary spelling program. This is because there are only two graphemes for the one phoneme. Late last week our class learnt all about graphemes and phonemes. I encourage parents and carers to quiz their children on this as it is very important. In Maths this week we focussing on whole number. This includes addition, place value and learning about factors. In Science we are focusing on batteries and electricity. We came up with a range of appliances that need batteries that range from drills to remote controls. Throughout this unit we will be creating circuits and looking at how things work.
