Week 5, Term 2

Kaya as we roll to the end of Week 4 and into the start of Week 5. (Not sure how we got here so quick)   Wow, what a couple of massive weeks we have had. Unfortunately, as many other educational settings around the state, we are experiencing and feeling the impacts of illness. It is a challenging time for many, so please reach out if there is any concerns or support needed during this time. NAPLAN The children were incredible during NAPLAN, I was so incredibly proud of all of their efforts. If your child was absent for any of the tests, Mr Torrese will be organising a make up of these during next week.   Dance for Sick Kids Fundraiser Kindy-Year 6 Students are invited to a whole School Dance Class for OLC's annual Dance For Sick Kids Fundraiser!

My boys, husband, Kelly the Kelpie  and I were able to get away camping by the Blackwood River and it was amazing. Just what we needed. Gosh this group of students are hard workers and such a joy to be working alongside with. They have been working hard on Place Value, Addition and Subtraction mental and writing strategies, learning to write Narratives, building their knowledge around the meaning of Lent in the lead up to Easter and also, what constitutes a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

Homework  This week Year 3s will start their new homework program. It will include a selection of times table activities and a reading log.   The times table activities have been selected for each child depending on what one they are up to.   Children can choose their own reading book, however if they would like to take home readers, please let Paula or myself know.   Homework will go home every second Monday (even weeks) and is to be returned on the following Friday (odd weeks) .   The children are asked to complete the times table sheets as well as eight nights of reading that is recorded in their reading log.   Learning Focus for Weeks 4 and 5 Writing: We are learning to:   Narratives Descr
