Junior School Newsletter - Term 1, 2018 - Week 9

Term 1 2018, Week 9
We have had such a wonderful first term, getting to really know our students and working together to learn new and exciting things. Our busy term included the Planks in-visit, Jump Rope 4 Heart, Harmony Day, Tri-Skills, Information Night, Meet-The-Teacher sessions, meeting St Kilda players as well as our wonderful and engaging Discovery Time activities. We would like to express our thanks to the parents and families of Mentone Park for the support and trust you have shown us, and all the hard work that you do to help us make Mentone Park the fantastic community it is.

We wish Angus M, Max D and their families all the best at their new schools and hope that they will keep in touch with us to let us know about how they are going in this new chapter of their lives!

In READING this fortnight, we have been learning how to determine importance and reading rhyming stories, especially enjoying Dr Seuss books. 

During WRITING this fortnight, we have been focusing on creating interesting narratives and recounts. 

Our latest topics in MATHS have been Addition and Subtraction and how they work together to help us understand numbers. We are also investigating patterns. 

This week we continued our INQUIRY topic by focusing on how we include others and reflecting on what we learned on Harmony Day. 

The PITW key concept we have been focusing on this week is Being Brave to Participate.

  • If you would like to volunteer in the classroom, please ensure the office has a copy of your Working With Children Check.
