Friday’s Learning Slides

Welcome to FUN FRIDAY and your last day of remote learning from home for Term Three!

What an amazing journey we have been on together! We couldn’t be prouder of our incredibly flexible, resilient and amazing Foundation students. Throughout this experience you have brought us all so much joy and we have valued spending this time with you and your families. Thank you!

To our incredibly supportive, flexible and hard working families we are so extremely grateful for your patience, guidance and the time that has gone into ensuring your little ones felt safe, valued and loved.

CELEBRATION OF TOGETHERNESS

Today there is an important SEESAW ACTIVITY for your child to complete in readiness for our first day back at school on Monday October 12. To celebrate being back together again we will be having a picnic and providing foundation students a free lunch order. Please note this is for Foundation students only. For catering purposes the order must be completed today. If you have any questions or dietary concerns, please notify your homegroup teacher via email.

Memory Box

All students will need a shoe box or another small box ready for Monday of Week 1.

We hope everyone has a relaxing and fun filled holiday. Make the most of this beautiful Spring weather and we look forward to seeing you all back on our screens ready for Week 1, Term 4 on Monday October 5.

With thanks and appreciation,

Good Morning fabulous Foundation students!
Welcome to Thankful Thursday!

Today we reflect on the wonderful gift of our world and thank God for all he has given us. What are you thankful for?

Take some time to reflect on this as you and your family participate in our Thanksgiving Liturgy, prepared by Sarah and the Junior teachers. Appreciate all the wonderful things in nature as you take a walk and create your own nature journal piece. Practise mindfulness by completing some of the mindfulness activities. Don’t forget to add to your Thankful Thursday page in your Wellbeing Week Journal!

We look forward to seeing you in our Morning Google Meets at 9am (9.15am for the Matildas homegroup)!

Enjoy the day, superstars!

Friday Learning Activities

Happy Friday to you, Fabulous Foundation students!

Get excited — today we are getting creative and going on some adventures using our imagination! Have your recycled materials ready! I wonder what you will create today? What adventures will you and your creation go on? What will you see and hear?

We continue to explore counting patterns in Maths today and we are going to use our number strategies to solve a problem.

In Religious Education, we are also looking at how we can take action and care for God’s creation. What will you do to help someone today?

Just a reminder that next week is Wellbeing Week. Leadership and Specialist teachers have organised some awesome family wellbeing tasks for each day! We will have our morning Google Meets and there will be no focused teaching sessions.  

Enjoy your weekend, superstars! Take some time away from the screen and have fun with your family!

Have a great day!
