Christmas Cooking

Christmas Cooking

On Wednesday the 7th of December the Year 5 were lucky to have the opportunity to do some Christmas cooking. Ms Lauritsen taught us how to make some coconut ice (Christmas style) and some of the ingredients included rice bubbles, condensed milk, sugar, coconut and food colouring. The year 5 students had a lot of fun with the cooking activities and we all got one slice of coconut ice to give to our family as well as a card that we wrote for them.

This is what our Christmas cooking looked like after it was wrapped …..

These amazing Grade 3 artists designed and created these fabulous birds. The brief was the bird had to sit, fly or stand and they definitely nailed it. 

I was so proud of the skills they developed and their persistence when faced with difficulties. Well done everyone.

Grade 3 and 4 artists have been learning a variety of paper construction skills over the last few weeks.
This week they designed and created their own original birds. 
They solved problems as they encountered them by trying different things or asking someone for help.

I am very proud of them and they were proud of themselves. Well done everyone.

You be You in 2022

You be You in 2022

Students in the art room began the year by contributing to a whole school art display ‘You be You’. They used paper, pastels or clay to create their own original fish.
After reading the story  ‘You be You’ by Linda Kranz students discussed what this would look like, sound like and feel like at school.
They shared some really thoughtful insights.

Be confident enough to be yourself

Stay  true to yourself

Be your own best friend

Stand up for things you believe in no matter what others say

Enjoy the things you like doing

Here’s a snapshot of the wonderful, colourful fish they created.
Well done to all the Awesome Artists

Amazing Designers and Creators

Amazing Designers and Creators

This week in the art room we went back in time and worked on practising the paper folding skills we had begun before COVD19.
The aim was to use these skills to  design and created a 3D bird using 2D paper. The brief was to create a bird that could stand, sit or be hung.

I am so proud of the way they approached design problems and persisted to create these awesome birds. They were very proud of themselves too.

They were very proud of themselves.

Such happy days in the art room. These little artists were challenged while learning paper construction skills.  They persisted and helped each other. Such a lot of  learning happens when we create. They were so proud of their work and I was so proud of them all.  Can’t wait to see what they make next. Yay to being back at school with all our lovely art materials.

Home Learning is ‘up and running’

Home Learning is ‘up and running’

Hi everyone,

Welcome to term 2 – a completely new way of learning from outside the four walls of the school classroom. Today is a ‘settling in’ day like most of us would normally do for a new term. Our parents (who are also our first teachers) may need some guidance during the day as many of them have not been to primary school since the dinosaurs roamed the Earth (well maybe not that long).

Today, here is a simple activity for all parents to try to do sometime during today’s day of learning. I would like parents to take a picture of their child/ren completing some of their learning. It may be of them working at a desk, practising some meditation skills, watching a video that their teacher has shared with them or having a brain break doing one of Mrs. Harrison’s fantastic PE exercises.

I then would like parents to send this photo to their class teacher as a quick way of touching base with them. Class teachers may not necessarily reply to these emails as they will be teaching throughout the day but it is a nice way to show them that your child is engaged in our home learning program. I would love to put some of these photos onto the school blog as well so if you give permission for me to post a photo of your child/ren please CC me in on the email to the class teacher. My email address is smullavey@htws.catholic.edu.au

Please also note that the Prep to Year 2 online program will begin after the students have made their way through the pack that was provided at the end of last term.

Below is a list of all teaching staff’s email addresses for your reference.

Cheers and have a great day with your beautiful families.
