Starting last week at Holy Trinity was an exciting experience. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. It was challenging not only to learn the names of the children in my new class but also to learn the names of the teachers and the grades they teach. I am still learning names! It might take me a while so I do apologize!
Even though Holy Trinity is very different to my old school, I have discovered that at the end of the day kids are kids! The children have adapted to me very well and have been eager to help me whenever they can.
I am glad to be part of the Holy Trinity community and I am looking forward to being involved in the activities and special events for the remainder of the year.
Today the Year 5 students went to watch the dress rehearsal of Hairspray. Taylor Paull an ex student of Holy Trinity played lead role of Tracey and Lucas Faundez played one of the Colour Crew. Their singing and acting skills were exceptional. It was absolutely amazing to watch them on stage. Our students were the most well behaved of all the schools present and should be proud of themselves.
Yesterday we had a special visitor from Monash University. We learnt about lots of different invisible forces such as push and pull, friction, gravity, tension and torque.
We had a fun morning and enjoyed learning new knowledge about how objects move.
This term all the 1/2’s are learning about multiplication. Our class has learnt lots about multiplication from ‘Multiplication boy’ and ‘Divider girl’. These videos have helped us to understand how skip counting, repeated addition and multiplication are linked.
Level 4 will begin Level Literacy reading circles next week.
They have been rehearsing the various roles and conducting practice sessions.
The students will have the opportunity to select the novel they read from a list. They are required to consider which novel is both interesting to them and is a good fit. Here is an example of one of the roles the students will focus on during the next month. Discussion Director
Have you ever wondered what happens during a regular lunchtime play. Here are a group of girls who decided to get creative today and put together a dance routine. Amazing what our kids can do isn’t it?
