Room 3 getting back into the swing of things in their newly renovated room. Call in and check it out.

Dear Parents

With only 2 and a half weeks to go in this term it is again flying by! Welcome to Scott Hoffman, Bens little brother, into Room 2 this week Our WOW night at the Civic is on the Wednesday of the last week of term, October 5th with a 6pm start. Keep an eye on the website and Facebook page for a short promo video which will be up by the end of this week. Tickets details are being finalised and we will get that information to you as soon as possible as well. Thank you for your support with the Book fair and the disco last week. The money raised by your

purchases for your own children will make a huge contribution to the library stock range - this year the money is going towards increasing the quick pick fiction range (check with Tania). Our 'staffroom' functioned well as a book fair location and while it has briefly gone back to a staffroom it is now set to morph back into a classroom (which it once used to be!) The builders are on a roll and we want to keep things moving so Room 7 is set to move into the staffroom this Friday! If you haven't had the chance yet to make an 'un-assembly' then pop along this week. There is a great hive of activity throughout the school with different learning activities on the go - add in a bit of

sunshine! and there is a few smiles on the dial! Tonight is our Friends of the School meeting which is now being held in the newly renovated block of Rooms 2 & 3. If you have not had a chance to see the transformation then tonight is a good excuse to pop along, have a look and join in on the meeting. The Friends of the School meeting is just one of the many ways that reflects the partnership between the school and our parents so the more the merrier!

Regards,

Tim Lovelock

Also special thanks to those that helped out during the week and to the teachers and staff for moving out of the staffroom so we could display all the books to you. Total books sold was $3,522.99, this has given the library and literacy circle $1,056.90 worth of new books. Some of the orders are in the office ready for collection (parent collection orders behind the counter) and the remaining orders will hopefully be filled by the end of the week. The prize draw has been done so some of you will notice an extra book or pencil in your order. Thanks again, Sheena Smith.

Room 1are exploring different painting techniques this week. We have started learning about fractions - ask me what I know about halves and quarters!

Certificates: Ethan Gray for making great connections in his reading and Addisyn Marshall for reading with expression. Room 2 Wow! We love our new improved classroom! It's lovely learning in such a bright, warm, welcoming space. "I like the cupboard" said Ethan. "I like the heater and the coloured walls" said Lachie. "I like the light green and the blue" said Ava. "I like everything!" said Magnus. A very big thank you to all the children, parents and staff who helped us with our big move. We are ready to build our collection of 'making' things again, so any boxes and interesting crafty objects are welcome. A big welcome to Scott Hoffman and his family to our class. Room 3 are all really enjoying our new learning environment. Everything seems so fresh and new. The colours really look great and the children are delighted with it. If you have a chance come in and see it. You may want to combine a look around with our Friday un-assembly. Isaiah My favourite thing is the heat pump Grace I really like the red paintwork Room 4 A big thank you to the staff, children and parents who were able to help us shift into the Activity Centre.

Thomas - Miniball started this week: I scored three baskets which is 6 points. It was quite hard to shoot but I am proud of myself because I had a good game. Emma - It was hard to know what was going on at first but then I figured out the rules. Hockey Final for the Myross Bush Champs. Good Luck guys and a huge thank you to Mrs Horton for coaching. Have a great week:Room 6 are busy trying to get our imovie done for the WOW night. There are heaps of great ideas flying around for how we can make it spectacular.

You are welcome to join us from 2:25pm on Friday. Room 7 Aisling, Bethany and Sarah. We have learnt the scientific process in class and used it to create our own experiment. We are now working on our explanation of the experiment and our findings. Once that is finished we are making an imovie to present all our work at the "Wow Night"... we can't wait to share it! We would love to see parents this Friday for inclass assembly...make sure you bring your gym shoes!!! Room 8 Ruby B - For art at the moment we're working on using our science knowledge of liquids, solids and gas. We have to draw a picture that has liquids in the sea, gas things in the sky and solid things on the ground. We're learning about layering things on a page. Bruce - We're working on finishing our science experiments. We're learning about gloop and how it's a solid and a liquid at the same time depending on the pressure. It's pretty exciting cause I didn't know that about gloop.
