Day One, Term 4!

What a fantastic start to Term 4 we have had!

It is such a great feeling to have a class full of children who are excited to be back at school and who can't wait to get back into learning.

We have a big week ahead of us with the Minstrel visiting and planning for the Masked Parade on Friday. You should have got an important notice home today about times/meeting points etc for the Masked Parade - if you haven't seen it - ask your child where it is!!!

Today we learnt how to play "Around the World" to practise our times tables in Maths.
Children had to answer 2 and 5 times table questions really quickly and try to "defeat" the "challenger".

Our champions for today were:

* Tait - defeated 5 and then another 4 children!
* Oscar - who defeated 6 children
* Theo - 4 children
* Robbie & Tiana - 3 children each
* Kelly & Alex - 2 children each
* Kurtis and Harry - 1 child each

* Ackolades also to Hannah, Poppi and Nicholas who all also defeated the challenger.

Congratulations to these FANTASTIC Mathematicians!

The Room One Term 4 Newsletter will also be out tomorrow.
If you can't wait until then dowload a PDF copy NOW from here!

Hope you all had safe, relaxing holidays.

Afterthought- I showed this video from You Tube with the Kids today.
They LOVED it, so here it is for your viewing pleasure....
