It has been a busy and productive term with lots of exciting learning in classrooms across the school. Some of the highlights have included Principal’s Tours, Instrumental Music lessons, SRC Meetings and Fundraisers. Our PJ Day was a great success raising over $350.00 for the Hutt Street Centre and we have also collected over 12,000 bread tags for “Bread Tags for Wheelchairs”. Students have enjoyed after school netball and soccer and we can’t forget our production coming up in Week 10. There has also been some fantastic learning happening across the school.
Room 4 is sizzling with all the impressive 'sizzling starts' they have been writing for their narratives. This Term, students in Room 4 have been working hard to make our writing more exciting, using onomatopoeia such as 'bang!' and 'crash!' to leave our readers wanting more.
Here are some sizzling starts we are proud of:
'Crash! What was that?' - Abigail
'Kaboom! The huge bird crashed to the ground as the rest of his friend flung into the air.' - Henry 'Boom, bang! The door slammed open and a big, hairy monster was there.' - Patrick ' Crash! The animals fell down with a thump and a bump!' – Oscar.
Room 6 and 7 students have worked tirelessly this term to create their own published narratives and autobiographies, which they shared with parents at our book launch on Wednesday night of Week 8. Students shone with pride as they shared their works with their parents and it was a pleasure for us to see as their teachers. A huge congratulations to the students for their hard work and dedication and a sincere thankyou to the families who supported them by joining us for this event.
Room 8, 3 and 2 have been busy in STEM designing and prototyping their own sideshows so that they can bring a bit of the Royal Adelaide Show to Clapham in Week 10.
Room 10 have been focusing on problem-solving and displaying the Habits of Mind during the confusion zone. Students did an excellent job during their Poetry Escape Room, Probability Carnival and recent STEM challenge. During this time they designed a Greek God's hand to lift up Poseidon's trident.
Room 13 have enjoyed joining their peers to practice for production.
Mr L has seen some great displays of teamwork from all year levels during PE lessons. Room 16 broke a new record for his zigzag team challenge by working together and supporting each other. He was lost for words!
Mrs Fasoli - It has been wonderful to see all classes working so hard on their production dances and props, with lots of teamwork and collaboration happening between students and classes. Thank you to our Upper Primary students who have choreographed dances for some of our classes or assisted teachers, it is much appreciated. Lastly, well done to our production cast who have worked hard each week in rehearsals learning their lines and adding their own flair to their roles.
Laura our new PCW would like to thank all of the students and staff for giving her such a warm welcome. She has been delighted to meet so many wonderful students and excited to get to know everyone better as her work continues.
