We discovered most of us get very cranky in the morning when mum and dad wake us up for school. In Maths we have been learning all about capacity using words such as full, empty, nearly full, half full and nearly empty. We used water and sand to fill different containers and then we compared which ones held the most. It wa​s lots of fun and very interesting. </p><p style="outline:none;margin-top:10px;padding:0px;line-height:1.72;font-family:sans-serif, arial, verdana, "trebuchet ms";font-size:14px;"><strong style="outline:none;">Year One:</strong>  Firstly, we would like to say a huge thank you to all the Year 6 students and any teachers who helped organise our Mission Day celebrations. We had a wonderful time!  In Year 1 we have continued reading Dreamtime stories and have started creating our own Creation dot paintings. In English we have enjoyed reading fiction books and identifying their features.</p><p style="outline:none;margin-top:10px;padding:0px;line-height:1.72;font-family:sans-serif, arial, verdana, "trebuchet ms";font-size:14px;"><strong style="outline:none;">Year Two</strong> have been enjoying Maths.  We are learning division by sharing groups of objects equally.  We have also been revising fractions.  An example of eighths would be cutting a birthday cake up into eight equal pieces.  Don’t forget to share the slices between eight friends – yum!  In Science, we have been looking at toys and the forces that we need to move them.  Did you know that when you are on the playground equipment, you could be using many different ‘push’ and ‘pull’ forces?  </p><p style="outline:none;margin-top:10px;padding:0px;line-height:1.72;font-family:sans-serif, arial, verdana, "trebuchet ms";font-size:14px;"><strong style="outline:none;">Year Three:</strong> In HASS, we have been learning about the climate zones of the world and discussing what it would be like to live in the Polar Zone. We have realised just how lucky we are to live in the Temperate Zone where we experience some of the world’s best weather conditions. In English, we have read several versions of the Cinderella story from all over the world. It is interesting to see how authors have adapted this classic story to suit their audience.  </p><p style="outline:none;margin-top:10px;padding:0px;line-height:1.72;font-family:sans-serif, arial, verdana, "trebuchet ms";font-size:14px;"><strong style="outline:none;">Year Four:</strong>  Last week, Year 4 had a visit from Mrs Mar, one of our wonderful parish workers. Mrs Mar spoke to us about the meaning of community.  She explained that the Church Community is made up of many people, all playing a role in the family of God, a family who care, rejoice, pray and welcome together. </p><p style="outline:none;margin-top:10px;padding:0px;line-height:1.72;font-family:sans-serif, arial, verdana, "trebuchet ms";font-size:14px;"><strong style="outline:none;">Year Five:</strong>  This week in Science, we have been writing up our experiments, which investigated shadows. We have finished reading the last of our picture books and so now, we are writing our own in the style of a chosen author. We finished our storyboards for our media arts projects, so we are now filming using the iPads. Using the green screen is a lot of fun.</p><p style="outline:none;margin-top:10px;padding:0px;line-height:1.72;font-family:sans-serif, arial, verdana, "trebuchet ms";font-size:14px;"><strong style="outline:none;">Year Six:</strong> In Science, we continue to grow mould on bread.  It is fascinating to see how disgusting mould can get.  Interestingly mould can come in many different colours.  We even grew a pinkish red mould.  We could combine art and science and create mouldy art.  </p><p style="outline:none;margin-top:10px;padding:0px;line-height:1.72;font-family:sans-serif, arial, verdana, "trebuchet ms";font-size:14px;"><strong style="outline:none;">Library:</strong>  Did you know that there are only 21.5 more school days left this year? Time to get out the Christmas books! Don’t forget to bring in your order form for Jessica Townsend’s author visit this Friday if you would like to purchase books from her Nevermooor  series.</p><p style="outline:none;margin-top:10px;padding:0px;line-height:1.72;font-family:sans-serif, arial, verdana, "trebuchet ms";font-size:14px;"><strong style="outline:none;">Learning Enrichment:</strong> Code Club and Maker Club have two more weeks to go before we finish for the end of the Year. Year Three Maths Extension has been looking at a Measurement Olympics – some students have already received gold medals for their estimating ability!<br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><img alt="classnews.png" src="/whatson/school-news/PublishingImages/Pages/Class-News/classnews.png" style="margin:5px;width:350px;height:255px;" /> <br></p><p style="text-align:justify;"> </p><p style="text-align:justify;"> </p>
Remarkable Momentshttp://www.stjoseph.qld.edu.au/whatson/school-news/Pages/Remarkable-Moments.aspxRemarkable Moments<p>​<span style="font-family:sans-serif, arial, verdana, "trebuchet ms";font-size:14px;">​Tomorrow is an important day for all the children as we celebrate our ‘Remarkable Moments’. This is a day being celebrated in all 139 schools across the Archdiocese. We acknowledge the remarkable learning which has taken place throughout the year by each and every child. We will be having a short liturgy in the hall after which the children will each share an example of their literacy learning. The morning will end with the children sitting in their family groups enjoying an ice-block. It is a great opportunity for all of us to stop for just an hour or so and reflect on our learning growth throughout the year. We also need to reflect on how lucky we all are for the very many opportunities we have been given. For this event we will be welcoming Mr Mark Elliott, Principal Education Officer Learning and Teaching from Brisbane Catholic Education.</span><br></p><p>​<br><br></p>
