Term 1 - Week 7 - Office Display

Term 1 - Week 4 - B5

In Room B5 we have had a very busy few weeks. We always try to have a positive attitude by having a Growth Mindset in order to reach our learning goals.

We have been learning about: Varied materials in Science. In HASS we have been observing Kings Park and the botanical gardens. In Writing, we are focusing on descriptive texts. We have started to read varied material and using the internet to gather lots of information. In Numeracy we have been exploring measurement and addition/subtraction word problems.

Welcome to B5

I wanted to start by welcoming everyone to the year 2/3 class for 2019. We have 15 year two students and 7 year thee students in our B5 classroom. I am very excited for the year ahead! We are also lucky to have a Year 1/2 class in B1 with Miss Lawson and a Year 3 class in B4 with Miss Clapsis. I will be working closely with both teachers throughout the year.

Our class will be a team; we will support each other and lift each other up. In our class kindness matters and we all do our best to succeed. Together we will create amazing things.

Phoenix Primary School participates in the crunch and Sip program which involves students bringing in a piece of raw fruit or vegetable to crunch on, during a mid-morning break. Please make sure your child brings a water bottle with fresh water in each morning, to sip on throughout the day.

No hat no play -
All students need to have a hat during terms 1 and 4 for physical activities, sports and play breaks. Students are welcome to leave their hat in their tray at school if they wish.

Library -
B2 will have library on Thursdays each week. Students must have a library bag to borrow a book. I have a library tub which will be placed out on Thursdays; students will be encouraged to place their returning library book in the tub when they enter the classroom in the morning. We will exchange the books later in the day.

Home Readers and Homework
– This will start next week, students are encouraged to read at home to consolidate the work we are doing at school. I will forward more information at a later date.

Class and parent meetings
– I will be arranging a time for a parent meeting in the next week or 2 as an opportunity to inform you about what will be happening in class and get to know you all.

– Connect is a communication app which I love and use quite regularly! If you are new or need help remembering passwords etc please see Cath Wyatt in the front office to help set you up.

Please always feel welcome to pop in and say hi or arrange a meeting if you would like a more in depth discussion.

I look forward to a great year ahead and seeing you all soon.

Kind regards – Mrs Railton
