Pumpkin Math!

Today we had so much fun carving our pumpkin Mr Happy. First we read a story called The Biggest Pumpkin and talked about how we could plan our Jack O’ Lantern’s face.

We are so lucky to have help from Grade 11 students on Wednesday mornings. Today children read the Three Billy Goats aloud for their reading buddy. I was so impressed as I listened in on the great storytelling! Take a look at our photos!

Halloween reminders

If you think you might be able to help on Thursday, 1pm-2pm, please do get in touch. We only had one volunteer this morning, but thankfully we now have three! 🙂

Children should come to school dressed in their costumes.

The Halloween Parade starts at 8am outside if you would like to watch. Thank you for all the candy you have sent in for Trick or Treating, the children are very excited! We will end the day with a Halloween party. Party food can be dropped to the classroom on Thursday morning.

Thank you

Favorite books

Dear parents,

In class we are reading The Three Billy Goats Gruff and working hard on the skills of rereading, matching pictures to the words, using character voices and sharing stories with our reading buddies. The idea is to encourage children to have a go, they won’t necessarily be reading the words but will be retelling the story in their own words. This builds confidence and a sense of achievement when they read a book for their friend. We have also been talking about what makes us unique and special. How we all have favorite things that might be different to our friends. So I have asked the children to bring in their favorite book from home tomorrow so they can share it with their reading partner. Ideally it should be a book your child knows well so will feel confident retelling the story.

Thank you

Each station will have one volunteer to lead the craft and help the children. If you would be interested in helping please send me an email. The crafts will take place from 1pm t0 2pm. Thank you!


Tomorrow will be a free dress day at UAS. The children can wear pink to help support and bring about breast cancer awareness (boys can wear red if they don’t have any pink clothes). We will explain to the children that we are wearing pink to help support a group that is raising money to help sick people. Thank you!
