Busy writers

We are busy writing letters to Mr Mac!

Term 4 Week 4

We have been learning about writing arguments and have been writing about the new playground. We think that the playground need to have some safe space to land in if we fall off so that we don't get hurt. Some people in our class through we should just have grass but we might fall down and get dirty.

The playground builders are putting something down for us to stay safe now.

Term Two Begins...

Hi all,

I hope the holidays has treated you all well. I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow morning for the first day back at school for term 2!

Just a reminder to everyone to please remember to bring their book bags in, as we will be taking off full speed getting straight into our reading from day 1.

This term we will be continuing our journey exploring the various nations and cultures of the Pacific Basin. As part of this theme, we are hoping to be making some poi once we have enough plastic bags, if you do happen to have any clean spare bags that you no longer require, it would be great if you could please have your son or daughter bring them in. We would like to thank those families that have helped us out by bringing in lots of shopping bags already!

Thank you for your support.
