In Year Three we are learning how to write procedures. A procedure is a text that explains how to make or use something. This week we made Fairy Bread and then we applied our knowledge of procedural text structures and language features to write our own procedure.
We enjoyed this hands on experience with our friends and the Fairy Bread was really delicious!
Week Two has been a great week, with lots of learning and lots of fun!
To see the children’s smiling faces back at school and thoroughly enjoying each others company has been very special!
This week we have been learning all about time. Here we are playing a game of time bingo with a partner. Engagement, thinking and collaboration was high!
In maths we have been learning about the split strategy and how this can helps us solve maths problems easily.

Looking forward to seeing all of our friends very soon!
Welcome back to Term 2 everyone!
We hope you all enjoyed the holiday break with your families and are excited to be learning again!
We have had a great start to Term Two! We have been busy planning for remote learning, working with the students who are attending school and supporting children at home.
This beautiful sunshine has provided many opportunities to learn in the fresh air. It has been wonderful to see the smiling faces of our Year Threes and it will be wonderful when we are altogether again!
Science- will it sink or float?
Experiments are underway!
FRUIT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT FOCUS – Gentleness
Our current Fruit of the Holy Spirit Focus is ‘Gentleness’.
We discussed and practised being gentle when passing around a ‘very full’ cup of water. We talked about how this water is like our feelings, and we can act gently by showing polite, restrained and compassionate behaviour towards others.
We also planned and acted out scenes to demonstrate how we can show gentleness to others. We know that especially during challenging times, it is important to show gentleness and compassion to all of those around us.
Planning a video for gentleness.
We miss our friends who are learning from home but we have really enjoyed being back at school! 🙂
We are off to a good start in Year Six Blue, preparing for our end of term Edu-Dance concert. Every Thursday afternoon 6 Blue have been focused on learning our dance steps. While it can be challenging to learn these new moves the students are focused and trying their best and it is already shaping up to be highly entertaining not to mention a great memory and fitness workout! Well done 6B!
On Tuesday 2nd July the Year Five and Six students participated in Keeping Safe Activities. The focus for this afternoon was on Relationships and we covered the topics; Rights and responsibilities of children and young people and Trusted Networks. The activities the students completed are all based on these focus areas.
Below is a link to the Rights of a child clip that the students viewed before completing the activities.
Overall, the teachers found that students were engaged and completed each activity, contributing some very insightful and interesting thoughts and opinions to each session. This was also a good precursor for next term’s learning about the concept of Social Justice.
