I hope you enjoyed your transition days this week children and are feeling excited about your move to year 5. We still have quite a few weeks left though so let's see who needs congratulating this week for their super work and manners.
First Joanna had not only caught the eye of the midday supervisors and received the lunchtime award, she is also always extremely kind, smiley and well-mannered so she received the Courtesy Award, as well as being a Star Writer - Wow! Jules, Keira and Emily were also Star Writers for their super WWI poetry that they did on poppy templates with Mrs Mucha. Caitlin caught Mr Harrison's eye and was awarded the Head Teacher's Good Work Award for her stunning progress in numeracy and literacy this year! Daniel had been working hard drawing triangles with specified angles and Rory was awarded the Good Work Award for the huge improvement in his independent writing skills.
As always children I am extremely proud of you all and wish you a very happy weekend. Remember there is no school on Monday as it is an INSET day!
Have Fun!

Happy weekend Assisi Class! I enjoyed all of this week with you; especially our 'Tea Morning'. For Big Writing this week we wrote instructions on how to make a cup of tea and the best way to start: Making a cuppa for ourselves. (Biscuits too - very tasty!)
Congratulations this week go to Nicole for her consistently courteous attitude, Ty for his amazing mental arithmetic skills and Lily. C. for her beautiful World War 1 art work. Star writers this week were Sam, Caitlin &Jules - but I could have chosen you all!
Another congratulations goes to all of the children in Years 3,4,5 & 6 for their fabulous athletic performances at District Sports this week - you've made us very proud children!
Happy weekend guys; it's gonna be a sunny one! Enjoy!
Mrs Kelly.

It looks like we are in for a super weekend children and this follows another super week in Assisi Class. In numeracy this week we have been creating 3D shapes and learning all about their properties. Our science work enabled us to go outside and investigate the wonderful habitats within our school grounds - we actually saw food chains in action! (Photos below). We had a lovely class liturgy and also a group of girls did a 'Jar of Hearts' presentation with some super preparation and singing.
In literacy we wrote letters to Beverley Naidoo (Journey to Jo'Burg author) and for their thoughtful letters bothEllie and Keira were our Star Writers this week. The MMS Award went to Jake this week for his accurate nets and 3D shape construction. The Good Work Award went to Lucy who has been trying really hard with joining her handwriting recently - keep it up Lucy! The Courtesy Award went to Naimh due to her consistently wonderful manners and exemplary behaviour - well done Niamh!
Anyway kids, have a lovely weekend and I'll see you next week when we have our Frankie and Benny's trip to look forward to!

The camp wouldn't have been such a super success without all of the parents who came to help us put up and take down the tents and even provided us with a porta-pottie and tent!
Mrs Moucha, Mrs Brough, Mrs Taylor and Mr Kelly also gave up their Friday night to make our camp as special as it was; so a MASSIVE thank you to you all!
