Junior School Newsletter - Term 2, Week 4

Term 2 2018, Week 4
After two fun weeks of the Swimming Program, our normal classes and programs have resumed and we are once again powering through the term! Jack and Grace confidently spoke at our assembly last week about all the wonderful learning experiences we are sharing in the Junior School, and with the upcoming excursion to the Australian National Aviation Museum as well as Kingston Library coming to visit us as part of our Local Community focus this term, things are just getting better! Our Monday Mingle continued this week, giving students more time to come together as a year level, and a chance to make some new connections or renew some old connections with students from other grades. The kids loved it!

Finally, in the week leading up to Mother's Day, your children have been thinking of all the wonderful things you do to make their lives special, and we hope you enjoy your special day! From all of us at Mentone Park, we send our love to the mums, grandmas, foster mums, stepmums, soon-to-be mums, angel mums and mums of angels who do so much, and give so much of themselves. You are amazing!

In READING this fortnight, we have been learning to make predictions before, during and after reading.

During WRITING this fortnight,we have been focusing on narrative writing and information reports.

Our latest topics in MATHS have been Subtraction and Measurement.

This fortnight we continued our INQUIRY topic by focusing on Community.

We have been investigating CYBER SAFETY and how we can be safe when we are online by not sharing our personal information.
