District Athletics Champions!!

Last term the Athletics team all showed great team work and determination to win the Athletics Carnival against other schools in our District. It was a really exciting day as we were in 2nd place behind Casey Grammar all day until it came to Relays and we overtook them to finish 1st overall.

Great achievement for everyone who participated.

 

For all those who qualified for Divisional Athletics that will take place on Wednesday 19th of September.

Percussion & Rhythm

The Year 2’s and 3’s have been looking a percussion and rhythm. They use Toms, Tambourines and Triangles/Shakers to recreate classic rock beats from drum kits. Using either Glockenspiels or Keyboards, they create a simple 3 note rhythm to accompany the beat.

Did you prefer to play a part of the beat, or the rhythm?

School Athletics Day

Reminder tomorrow is the School Athletics Day. Children to wear sports uniform to school and arrive at the normal time. Please remember to bring a hat and a drink bottle.

Some notes for parents.
– Parents are welcome to come and cheer on the children.
– If any parents would like to help out please speak to your child’s group leader when you arrive.
– Parents will not be allowed in the yard during recess and lunch time. You are more than welcome to come inside the school for a seat and a cold drink.

See everyone tomorrow. 🙂

ART: Parent Art Class

Every Thursday afternoon from 2:20pm until 3:15pm parents and carers are invited to attend an Art class at school. The class is free of charge and it is a great way to get to know each other and spend some time relaxing with some art activities. Come and join us tomorrow!

“Give me a Word!”

The hip hop activity for year 5 this week was, “Give me a word.” Children have a backing hip hop track and freestyle to a word they are given. They use that word in small sentences to the rhythm of the backing track. We had a large variety of verses pumped out.

Art Smocks and plastic bags

As we are now nearing the beginning of week 4, it is important that all students have their art smocks, ready for Art! An art smock can be an old shirt or jacket that can fit over the top of a school uniform. ALSO I’m constantly in need of plastic bags for clay projects. Any donations (Woolworths/Coles plastic bags are great!) are largely appreciated.

 

Looking forward to seeing everyone prepared for Art!
