Principal's Report -
The first term break is already upon us! The growth we have seen in the children this year has been great, especially with our new preps who have settle well into school and are almost part of the furniture. Next term continues to be a busy time with the 3&4 camp, Athletics, NAPLAN, Bike Ed and bike ride, 4-6 camp in Melbourne along with King Valley Cluster Day.
In the classroom for this week the children have been presenting their Inquiry project, where they had to compare life in Australia to another Country from around the world. The children have presented in a variety of ways, with lots of interesting facts and observations about the world we live in.
Next term in numeracy the children are studying addition and subtraction so this week we have been undertaking pre testing to discover our understandings and misunderstandings on these topics.
In reading we have been developing and practicing their skills in taking ‘tracks’. These are written notes of their thinking, thoughts and questions while reading the book.
Bike Ed Trailer and Bike ride
The year 3 -6 children will be going on a bike ride from Myrtleford to Bright on the first Friday back in Term 2 on the 26th April. If parents could make sure that the children have a roadworthy bike, brakes working , oiled chains etc for the ride . If children do not have a suitable bike please let me know ASAP.
The Bike Ed Trailer will be at the school for the first two weeks of the term for the children to practice their skills. All the children will be involved in this program. If possible could all children bring their bikes to school for the full two weeks.
The children have been practicing for the upcoming athletics day in week 5 of Term 2. This day is always a fun day. This year Moyhu Primary school will be catering for the day by running the BBQ and selling drinks. Please let me know if you can help out on the day.
The children will be attending a puppet play at the Myrrhee Hall on Wednesday 24th April. This is the first Wednesday of the term.
The students had art today. The topic was Think and Print. They needed to make a shape from cardboard to do a rubbing with special crayons in which they finished with a stencil. Then using the stencil they made, print out a picture from the stencil. You can see a fantastic example below with Sam, Julukbia and Natalie's finished pieces.
Finally, have a great break for the Easter holidays, hopefully Easter Bunny is kind to you and brings chocolates. School starts back on Tuesday 23rd as Monday is a public Holiday. Thursday will be a public holiday with ANZAC Day on the 25th April.
