In English, we have been writing our own fables. A fable is a short story usually featuring animals, where the characters learn a lesson throughout the adventure. Students created a storyboard for their fable, then wrote a draft, and then used teacher feedback to create a good copy using the Book Creator App.
Today we had the chance to share our fables with our Year 1 buddies. They loved listening to us read our stories and even gave us some feedback for when we write another fable!
Last Friday we performed at the first assembly of 2020. We had a great time preparing our performance which showcased both our current focus on fable writing and our identity unit which is all about our emotions. Check out some photos from our rehearsals and the big day!

On Friday of Week 2, some of our Year 5 students took part in an interschool Numero competition.
Numero is a maths card game that requires players to create number sentences using all four operations, percentages, fractions and decimals! Year 5 have been playing this game all year, and on the last day of Term 3, we took part in a round robin competition to help select our two teams.
This was the first time St Emilie’s has ever competed in such a competition, and both of our teams did a fantastic job. We finished 8th and 11th out of 18 teams! The highlight of the day was our Gold team scoring the 3rd highest score in the SCRAMBLE TEAM TAKE round. I would also like to say a special thank you to the 6 stewards for the day, who helped with the running of the event, and a BRAVO to Holly who filled in for a different school!
We will all be much better for the experience and we can’t wait to improve on our finish next year! Well done guys!
On Tuesday 6th August, twenty students from Year 5 and 6 travelled to Mercy College to perform their liturgical dance routine. The girls have been rehearsing their piece for the past ten weeks, in preparation for the Performing Arts Festival for Catholic Schools. The movement was performed to the, ‘Compassion Hymn’, and it highlighted the amazing and overflowing mercy, that Christ our Lord so generously shares with us all. The girls represented our school through dance, celebrating the rich Gospel message of peace, kindness and forgiveness, and can be very proud of their efforts.
