Parent Information Evening

Thank you to all the parents that were able to join me this evening for our Parent Information Session.

For those families that were unable to make it I have included the presentation in this post.  The Term One Overview can be found on the 2017 Term Overviews page on my blog.




2016 Memory


It’s hard to believe that the year is almost over!  It has been such a pleasure teaching this group of 5/6 students.  Together we have gone on camp, three excursions, numerous sporting events and lots of learning.

As a comment below write a recount of one of your favourite memories from school this year.

My memory:

In Term One the 5/6 students and teachers went on camp together.  Boy was it hot!  I remember on one particular day it was almost unbearably hot.  In order to cope in the heat we would pour water down each other’s backs and faces.  On camp I really got to know all the year 5 students and I enjoyed spending more time with the year 6 students.

This camp was particularly memorable for me as it was the first camp EVER when my alarm woke me up on the second day and not the students!

Metaphor poems

In class we have been learning about figurative language, in particular metaphors.

The students have written metaphor poems, please enjoy reading their work in the comments section below.



In English we are exploring poetry in its many forms, from cinquains and octopoems to haikus.

Students have been asked to create a piclit, the poem doesn’t have to rhyme but needs to reflect the image they selected.
