They are for the 3 little pigs so we had to make sure our houses were strong enough not to be blown down by the big bad wolf. We tested them with a hair dryer just to make sure. They all stayed standing, so we did a great job. Thank you to the Year 5 students who entertained us on Wednesday with their fairy tale performances. Well done! We look forward to some more this week. </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>enjoyed some wonderful fractured fairy tale performances on Wednesday. The Year 5 students did a wonderful job and thoroughly entertained us.  We have been very busy creating digital art posters on the Ipads. These posters will help us all to remember positive behaviours at school. </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> We enjoyed being an audience for Year Five last Wednesday when they presented their plays to us.  We have also been rehearsing some plays in Drama and are keen to create our puppet show stages in Design Technology so that we can perform them as well!  Year Two think that they are R.E.M.A.R.K.A.B.L.E learners and enjoyed sharing their learning and an ice block last Friday! </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> We were very excited to head to the pool on Monday for our third swimming lesson this term. Our teachers can’t believe how much of an improvement we’ve made since Term One and are green with envy that they can’t cool off in the water alongside us. We are all looking forward to diving off the starting blocks at our swimming carnival next Friday!   </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 we presented our second Talk Topic for the term on different landmarks around the world.  There are amazing places to see if you get the chance to travel including the Grand Canyon, Wave Rock and The Giant’s Causeway.</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>  We have been working on how we can express ourselves more clearly when we recite poems and stories. We need to be excited about what we are reading and that will show in our faces and you’ll hear that excitement in our voices. We have had great fun playing ten pin bowling this term and learnt many new skills when we got down low and answered the phone!</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>have been learning about poetry written by an Aboriginal author.  It has been interesting learning some of the Baradah Clan’s words for different things like mookari which means storm. They will be sad to see Ms Johnston leave at the end of this week.  She has been their favourite student-teacher this year.  We wish her well and congratulate her on finishing her time as a student-teacher.  </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>  It was very exciting to host Jessica Townsend, author of the bestselling series Nevermoor for an author visit at our school on Friday afternoon. A big thank you to the event organisers at Where the Wild Things Are bookshop for including St Joseph’s on the book tour. We loved meeting Jessica and listening to her talk about her craft. Signed copies of Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow and Wundersmith: The Calling of Morrigan Crow are available for loan in the library.  </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;">Speaking of loans, there are only two more weeks left to borrow. A gentle reminder to those students with any overdue loans to return books to the library as soon as possible as invoices for replacement books will be sent home by the end of this week. </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> This week (Week 6) will be the last Code Club and Maker Club this year. Thanks to Mr V and Mr Seow for their time and effort helping with both Code Club and Maker Club. Thanks also to Mrs McGregor and the Year 6 and 5 students for allowing us to use the classrooms, and Mrs Claridge for allowing us to use the library. Finally, thanks to all the students who have worked so hard in these programs – Mrs Burgman hopes you all keep coding and learning! ​<br><br></p>
Christmas Appealhttp://www.stjoseph.qld.edu.au/whatson/school-news/Pages/Christmas-Appeal.aspxChristmas Appeal<p style="outline:none;margin-top:10px;padding:0px;line-height:1.72;font-family:sans-serif, arial, verdana, "trebuchet ms";font-size:14px;">​This week 5 Green will be kickstarting our Christmas Appeal to support our local St Vincent de Paul Conference. This year, we will be collecting on behalf of our local Vinnies volunteers who are hoping to put together over 40 hampers for families and singles in our surrounding community. In previous years, we have collected donations and each class has put together a hamper for a particular family, but due to an increase in requests for assistance, we will try and support Vinnies to create more than just our usual 18 hampers.<br></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;">Each of our classes will be allocated a product type or style of grocery that they will collect for, and then Vinnies will sort through our donations and create as many hampers as they can. For example: a class might be asked to bring in donations of breakfast cereals, and if we end up with 25 boxes of cereal, Vinnies will use them in 25 hampers. More will be explained on assembly, and our teachers will let each class know how the children can help. Thank you for your support with this and our other fundraising efforts throughout the year. The Christmas appeal has an impact within our immediate community, so it is a good way to finish the year.<br></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;text-align:center;"><img src="/whatson/school-news/PublishingImages/Pages/Christmas-Appeal/VinniesAppealChristmas.jpg" alt="VinniesAppealChristmas.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:400px;height:312px;" />​<br></p><p><br></p>
