Blog Post Term 3 Week 8

Kaya 3L Parents,  Happy Monday!  Reconciliation  Tomorrow is our Year 3L Reconciliation.  It begins at 5pm. If you are able to be a prayer buddy to support those beautiful children receiving the Sacrament, we would love to see you there.  The service is to go for about 45 minutes.  This Saturday 10th September is our celebration mass, where all Year 3s are invited to attend to congratulate those who have furthered their faith journey.  Shoe Box Gift A letter will go home tomorrow regarding this, due to Reconciliation preparation, we thought we would focus on one thing at a time. Apologises if it is a bit late.  The Year 3 children are going to be involved in a ‘Shoe Box Gift’ as a part of Operation Christmas child initiative to send to underprivileged children throughout the world a gift for Christmas.   The children will be placed into in groups of four and between them they will fill a shoebox with a variety of items. The items can be made and do not need to be expensive if they are

Blog Post Term 3 Week 5

Kaya 3L parents,  Hope you are having a lovely week. There are a few things come up in the next few weeks.  Commitment Mass  This Saturday 20th August at 6pm at our church. The children do not need to prepare anything for this.  Homework There has been new homework sent out this week that relate to the six times tables. I will be collecting it at the end of week 6, which will be a Thursday. The expectation is that 2-4 pages are completed per week and returned on the fortnight. If students bring it in weekly, I mark it either way. Please continue to read with your child, the students are loving Roald Dahl at the moment so this could be a hand purchase.  Catholic Day  Next Friday 26th August , the school will be closed for our Catholic day. Enjoy an extra long weekend... I sure will be. If by Sunday you run out of things to do, come down to watch our last Sharks game against Donnybrook.  Book Week  Thursday 25th August (week 6) will be our Book Week parade.  Open Classroom  Thursday  1

Blog Post Term 3 Week 4

Kaya 3L parents,  Welcome to week four! Oh how it is flying by....  We are having a grand old time in Year 3!  I have had many requests by the students to post on the blog about when my last footy game is. If you would like to come along to the Sharks last game it is at home (Playing Fields) against Donnybrook on Sunday 28th August.    Homework Thank you so much for those students who are continuing to bring their homework books in for me to check. Those consistent ones can expect a little prize at the end of term. I understand that there is no set date but it is collected every 2 weeks. Therefore I will be collecting it during week 4, 6, 8 and 10. When your child completes the homework I will send home different timetables.  For extra homework, the students have access to Soundwaves, Reading Eggspress and Mathletics.  Just a reminder that it is  DUE FRIDAY THIS WEEK, 12 th  AUGUST. This gives me enough time to mark them, and set them up for a new fortnight by the following Tuesday. Mi

YEAR 3 Excursion

Kaya 3L parents,  Tomorrow is our excursion to Ngilgi Cave. This year we have been learning about the six aboriginal seasons and how they are different to our European seasons. We have also been learning about Indigenous names for local places and plants.

Mr Josh Whiteland of Koomal Dreaming will be joining us and teaching us about the local Wadandi Boodja culture. The Year 3 classes will travel to the cave separately, with students to travel to and from Ngilgi Cave by bus. 3L will attend the morning session and 3H will attend the afternoon session.  S tudents will need to wear their sports uniform and school hat. There will be no additional cost of the excursion.   Please let us know if your child is NOT allowed to attend the excursion ASAP via email.  Permission slips will be sent home today and are also attached to this blog if you would like to sign
