Calendar Art 2017

Wowee, did we work hard on calendar art this year, or what!? We think our hard work has paid off... two drafts and a final copy later and here are our results! In creating this piece we learnt all about spacing, size and position. Don't you think our pictures look just like our families huddling together for a family photo? If any parents would like to purchase our 'calendar art' (not just calendars - there's sketch books, mouse pads, diaries and more!) please keep an eye out for the notice in your child's book bag. If the notice didn't make it home last week (that happens sometimes with the book bag mail system!) feel free to send Miss Chalmers an email at

Field of Dreams Swimming - Week 1

Today Room 11 had their first Field of Dreams swimming lesson for the term. Here's a few pictures of us in our togs, ready to go! Thanks Mrs Airs for the photos :)

A reminder that we have swimming lessons every Thursday until Week 8. Children must bring their togs in a named swimming or plastic bag. 

Welcome back to Term 4!

Welcome back to Term 4, everyone! The sun is shining and summer is definitely on the way. Here are a few videos/photos from Miss Chalmers' phone that didn't get posted before the end of last term. Stay tuned for another post to see what we've been up to during our first week back!

Jasmine's Writing for her Mum
Jasmine's Mum went on a big trip all the way to a country called Israel. Here is Jasmine's letter that she wrote for her mum. What awesome writing Jasmine!

Science in Mr Diack
Mr Diack took a really fun Science lesson in Room 11 towards the end of last term. They made a cannon out of a vacuum cleaner and a length of pipe! The children learnt all about air pressure during this lesson.


Chips, chips, chips!
Mrs Cowan and Miss Chalmers shouted Room 11 and 12 hot chips on the last day of Term 4 to celebrate an amazing term of learning. Ka pai, Room 11 and 12 - you put in the hard work to learn, grow and succeed this term.

Maui and Moana 
Congratulations to Payton and Ashton, who were both awarded certificates during Week 10 and were given the big responsibility of taking Maui and Moana home to look after for a night.
