We were very lucky as we had ice creams after the cross country because we are learning about the i_e sound. I like icecream i_e i_e i_e!! </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Year One: Last week Year One had a very busy week with Cross Country and Grandparent's Day. We loved having all our wonderful grandparents come visit us and tell about when they went to school. We all enjoyed Cross Country and ran very well. Mrs Feenaghty's last day is this Friday and she wanted to say Goodbye to everyone and thank-you for all the wonderful memories and cuddles! </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Year Two: We enjoyed cross country last week and tried our best to run the three laps – phew! We’re really looking forward to our Out of the Box excursion on Thursday. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Year Three: The Year Threes are really looking forward to their excursion to Out of the Box and showing off our skills at the Dance Party. We have all been working very hard this term and are excited about being able to sleep in on the cold mornings. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Year Four: After making "crazy critters" out of clay, we're now attempting to make even more crazy creatures! We're carefully reading and following instructions and using wool to create our latest creations. We're also enjoying the athletic training with the Queensland athletic coaches.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Year Five have successfully made it to the final week of this long term and we are really looking forward to a break. We have enjoyed lots of learning and fun times with our friends.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Year Six: Another crazy week in Year 6. 6 Green were sad to see Miss Johnston finish her prac teaching. Mr Seow is the saddest as he has almost forgotten how to teach. We were very happy to help out at the Junior Cross Country on Friday. There were some speedy little people racing around the oval. We are still counting down to the holidays. 5, 4...... We are so close now. </p>
