Today we began working through a multiplication and division problem solving iBook.
We are working on this task in pairs or small teams. It requires us to read a story problem, decide whether we use multiplication or division to solve it and then show our working, to find the solution.We’re really enjoying the challenges and look forward to solving the rest of the problems this week!
Mrs Chaves, Miss Corkhill & The Year Four
On Wednesday the 12th of September, we had our whole school Open Night. – Roman
In our classrooms, we showed our families around to look at some of the work we have been doing in class. – Soreti & Jessica
This was an opportunity to show our parents the progress we have made since Term One’s Open Night. – Michele
One of our big displays in the classroom was an Engineering Incursion Reflection which was part of our Balloon Powered Car Project. – Adam & Nicholas
Another display we had in our classroom was our Fruit of the Holy Spirit Goodness comic strips. – Rihanna
We also had a display outside the classroom which were our self portraits that we drew. Our parents had to guess which one we were! – Joshua
This Open Night was a little bit different to the one in Term One. Over in the hall we had a big Maths Expo which we called a ‘Mathstravaganza’. – Ruby & Kieran
The Year Four exhibition was about time and following directions to locate information on a grid. We took part in the challenge with our families to get on the grid and answer the questions. – Daisy, Sophie J & Amber
There were also a few tents in the hall which showcased different parts of maths. – Jayne
The three tents were problem solving, mental maths and MAI. – Jordan, Josh & Lizzie
Mrs Chaves, Miss Corkhill & The Year Fours
On the 13th of September, the Year Fours went to St Norbert College to view their Creative Arts Exhibition. – Nina
We were given a sheet of paper, which had a quiz on it, and we had to look around the exhibition to find the answers. – Sophia
There were lots of forms of art on show such as design technologies, paintings, food technology, tactile artwork, wood and metal work, textiles, clay models and etching. – Eva, Jason, Jesse, Elijah, Fin, Taylah, Gabby D & Keeley
We all loved seeing the beautiful artwork and we are feeling inspired to go and create our own artworks! – Linisha & Louis
At the end of the excursion, we each received a special goody bag from the school, which we loved! – Ayva
It was really great to see some past St Emilie’s students’ artwork on display as well.
Thanks Mr Harvey and St Norbert College for having us!
A couple of reminders:
- This night is time for you and your child to share learning together -please make it count – be enthusiastic and positive!
- In addition to going to your child’s classroom, please make sure you visit – THE NUMERACY EXPO in the hall and the BOOK FAIR in the library.
- It is important to note that the Open Night is not the time or place to discuss student learning or behaviour concerns with your teacher- this needs to be done in a pre-arranged two-way meeting time.
- Parents are expected to keep their children with them the whole time (unless a child has been asked to ‘host’ at a particular display as prearranged).
- Young children and toddlers must be carefully supervised at all times and not permitted to touch classroom equipment etc.
- Parents are reminded how much time and effort goes into setting up for Open Nights – please take a moment to thank staff for their efforts. These opportunities only happen through hard work, generosity and a team effort and should never be just taken for granted. A quick email or a word of thanks puts a spring in the step of end of term teachers, who give so much to your children and our school, in so many different ways.
- Mass starts at 6pm – parents are asked to please be considerate and not park in the church carpark, thank you. Some families may like to attend Mass after the Open Night – you are of course very welcome.
We are looking forward to seeing you tomorrow night and trust that you will enjoy a wonderful opportunity to affirm, thank and encourage your children!
Looking forward to seeing you all soon! 🙂
Mrs Chaves, Miss Corkhill & the Year Fours
On Friday the 7th of September one of our wonderful students presented to our Year Four cohort, Mrs Cogger and Mr Munro, about GreenBatch, an organisation working towards building Western Australia’s first plastic recycling facility. Amber spoke with passion and great maturity and had her audience captivated with her excellent public speaking skills and knowledge of this topic.
After attending a workshop with GreenBatch and doing some research surrounding plastic recycling in Australia in her own time, Amber realised the need for finding a solution to our current plastic pollution problem. She is hoping to work towards a solution by raising awareness about plastic recycling and also get our school community on board with the GreenBatch school recycling program, which we will certainly be looking into.
I would like to take this opportunity to formally recognise Amber’s efforts and to congratulate her on providing such a passion-filled and educational presentation for us all.
All of us here at St Emilie’s know you will be going onto great things Amber! Well done.
You can find out more about GreenBatch here.
