Next Step Interviews

Dear Parents,

As you know Room 30 will have parent-teacher interviews on April 8th and 10th. The purpose of these is for you to understand where your child is at in their learning journey and to discuss their next steps. As the interview is focused on your child's learning, it would be good for your child to attend the interview with you if you so desire.

I look forward to seeing you

Serena Storey

We're nearly at the end of the term! 
It's been a fantastic term and everyone has worked so hard and learnt so much! 

We have a busy few weeks ahead of us- On Monday and Wednesday we are doing a practice walk (just in the Community Forest) for Okura which is coming up on Friday. 

Our poetry competition starts on Tuesday. Two year six students and one year five student will be chosen from our room to enter the Year 5/6 competition. Make sure your poem is ready to go! 

On Tuesday and Thursday of this coming week there are parent teacher interviews (so be nice to Mrs Storey because not only will she be tired, she'll also be talking to your parents ;) 

On Wednesday we have an Asttle pre-test for Statistics (which is our new strand topic for next term)

On Friday the year 5's and Mrs Storey will be on the Okura walk! 
Cross your fingers for nice weather!


March 20th
Get in quick if you want to practice for the NSW exams- The first 7 maths questions will be deleted on Monday.
