Week 9

Good morning parents,


Welcome to week 9 which is also Holy Week.  Holy Week is a very important time in the Catholic faith as we remember and celebrate the events leading up to Jesus' death and resurrection.

On Thursday 29th March, the Year 3 & 4 students will be presenting their reflection on the Resurrection of Jesus.
There are some children that have been given a speaking part, can you please make sure that you are practicing this with your child each night. We working with them each day and asking them to remember that they need to watch the actors on stage to make sure they are in time with each other and to make sure that they are pausing during relevant times.
Some children have been given an acting part, they will know who they are. We have sourced costumes for the guards and Mary but we are asking that all other children come dressed in a simple costume reflective of the time of Jesus. They are to wear this over the top of their school uniform and are to come to school dressed and ready to go on Thursday morning.


Reminders
Easter Egg Raffle - Please make sure that you have brought in your donation for the raffle which will be held on Thursday. Your child was given their raffle tickets on Friday morning. If you would like to be in the raffle, please return one half of the tickets with your family name clearly written on each ticket and $5. I will be collecting the raffle tickets for 3M as this year we are having major prizes drawn for each year group.
All money raised during this time is donated to Project Compassion.
Each morning the whole school will be gathering together to reflect on the events of this important week. We will have a small and reverent reflection presented by each class in the hall every morning beginning at 9am.



Parent Teacher Interviews - I have placed a schedule up on the door of our class. Please write down your name on a time that suits. They will be held on Monday and Tuesday 9th and 10th April.



In literacy we have changed genres and have begun looking at Narratives! We will spend the next few weeks discussing the purpose of a narrative - which is to entertain, the structure of a well written narrative, some of the language features used as well as what makes a good setting, character description and how to develop a really good plot!

The students had a hilarious time on Thursday with working as a group to create a story using a given sentence starter!


Homework this week includes spelling, Mental math unit 9 and reading.  This video should assist with your child's math.




We have been working on the 4 times tables in class, with students watching this video.  It is a fun, engaging way to help remember our times tables.
