Week 9 Term 1

Image
Welcome to Week 9 which is Holy Week. This is a very important time of the year in the Catholic faith as we remember and celebrate the events leading up to Jesus' death and resurrection.

Holy Week Reflections - Each morning the whole school will be gathering together to reflect on the events of this important week. We will have a small and reverent reflection presented by each class in the hall every morning beginning at 9am.  On Tuesday 2K and 1S students will be performing their liturgy for Holy Thursday - washing of the feet and the Last Supper.  Please read the previous blog entry or the parent note sent home with your child last fortnight for details about costumes.  They are to wear this over the top of their school uniform and are to come to school dressed and ready to go on Tuesday morning.

Please feel free to use your own creative licence to modify costumes as you wish. Costumes should be simple and only take 5-10 minutes to put together. We are also happy with something as simple as a head piece, or anything that the …

Hello Parents,
We have been so busy learning in 2K this term!
INQUIRY LEARNING
We are enjoying learning about the integrated science topic of life cycles and geography unit of mapping this term.  The 2K students have been so interested in these topics and it is great to see such inquisitive and engaged learners wanting to know more about our amazing world.  Some animals and plants undergo amazing transformations as they grow and change.  We have also focused on line, colour, shape and symmetry in art and have created some absolutely gorgeous self portraits and unique ink blot prints of butterflies, inspired by Andy Warhol's art print "Happy Butterfly Day".  The kids really loved using the chalk pastels and developing their wet/dry colouring techniques and of course the messy but fun blending too, to create harmonious analogous colours for their butterfly!



MATHEMATICS
We have focused on place value of number at the start of this term and last week completed our study of number…
