Camp and Week 2 Learning

  Kaya ,  I hope you all had a great weekend, today we took a day trip to Perth today to celebrate my beautiful mother in-law's 70th at Core Cider House in Pickering Brook. Nothing beats a bit of family time, especially a baby cuddle with my new nephew, Hugo! We have had a wonderful week back to school although I am sure your children are very tired, from both camp and the first week back. Spending the week on camp with this group of year 6 students was wonderful. It was a privilege to watch them test and push themselves, really showcasing their resilience when it came to overcoming their fears and stepping outside of their comfort zone. The students wrote a reflection letter to themselves, reminiscing on their time on camp and how they showed a growth mindset throughout camp and overcame their fears. Please come in and have a read of what made them so proud of themselves. The activities that the students took part on are listed below:  1. High Ropes 2. Abseiling and Rock Climbing

  Kaya ,  I hope you all had a excellent Easter with family and friends. I am sure there was lot's of chocolates and excited children in every household. I started my Easter at 5am with an Easter egg hunt searching for chocolate and clues...however if my boys had a say in when to start, we would have been hunting at 2am!!  We have just spent the last 5 days in Perth with family and friends...doing all things touristy! Amongst going to Scitech and the Dockers game, a zoo trip was a must... I hope both you and the students have had a lovely and relaxing break, however, I am looking forward to getting back and getting stuck in to camp - I do miss my students! I cannot wait to hear all about what they got up to over the holidays and hear their enthusiasm and excitement for their last camp in Primary School. ⭐⭐Star Citizen⭐⭐ Congratulations to Luca York for winning our star citizen award at the end of term 1 for compassion.

Kaya , I hope you all had a wonderful sunny Saturday and Sunday to finish your week. It was so lovely to see some of you at our Year 6 Family mass on Saturday night, what a special ceremony it was, including the blessing of the palms for Palm Sunday. It was also lovely to share some pizza with the students after mass. Thank you Mrs Holt for organizing a beautiful afternoon. ⸙⸙  We made the last minute decision to go to Perth today to celebrate my father-in-laws birthday and bring home a Docker's win! There was so much joy, watching Xavier's face see his idols run across the field and get a win (even it was a messy game!) Definitely made the 3 hour trip home right NOW a little easier to stomach.  Congratulations to Tilly on receiving last weeks Merit Award, she is showing such excellent determination in her learning at the moment.  Week 8 Learning Maths: In Maths, we have been learning about the mental and written strategies of addition and subtraction. This week we will be appl

  Kaya , I hope you all had a wonderful sunny Saturday and Sunday to finish your week. What a fun week we had, a green mid-week celebration was had by all. Miss Hurst was such a true ambassador of the Irish spirit, immersing us in a wonderful culture experience. I thank her for the time and effort she put in to planning such authentic and meaningful tasks, whilst still having fun! 💚🍀 The students not only took part in all the activities but even had a wee jig (Miss Hurst's language) at the end of the day.It was such a pleasure seeing the children leave with huge smiles on their faces beaming from ear to ear.  Then to top it all off, the Year 6 students finished their swimming lessons on Friday with incredible manners and respect for their awesome swim instructors, what a great end to the week! Week 8 Learning Maths: In Maths, we have been learning about prime and composite numbers, triangular and square numbers, as well as exponents. Over the next week, why not get your child to
