Welcome back!

4/5S had a wonderful first week back with 5 students achieving mastery. Congratulations to Rebecca, Jemima, Keely, Zanetta and Gordon. All students settled back in beautifully after two weeks break and were straight into learning. Here are a couple of things we got up to this week:

Final touches being made on our paper mache animals.

In science we are working on a unit called The Utility of Things. We learnt the difference between objects, materials and their properties. These are our initial understandings. 


Speak off!!

Congratulations 4/5D! I was so impressed with all of your Public Speaking abilities. Thank you for all of your effort to plan and present such amazing speeches.

A big congratulations to Cody, Bec and Seb Who represented 4/5D in Speak Off on Thursday! Well done!!

 We are so incredibly proud of Bec and Seb who were named our Stage 2 Champions and will represent Tighes Hill PS next term at Zone Public Speaking. Look at those beautiful smilies!!

Week 4 Assembly

4/5D did such amazing job running today’s assembly. Here is our presentation on the ‘The Sun, the Moon and their impact on Earth’ if you missed it. 


Mass in maths

Hands-on problem solving this week in maths. I loved seeing you all working together and listening to each other’s ideas. Go 4/5D!

Homework Week 3-5

All students received their Term 2 Speaking and Listening Task note on Friday. As I know that students will be busy preparing their speeches over the next couple of weeks I will not be sending home the formal homework grid until Week 6. In the meantime for homework I would like students to prepare their speeches, complete nightly reading and as an option complete spelling tasks that I will continue to upload each week.

Happy speech writing 🙂


First day back!

Thank you for a wonderful first day back 4/5D! It was great to get back into the swing of things, you were such hard workers as always. We had a great day of learning about Mass in Maths and about the distance between and size of the Sun, Moon and Earth in Science. For those eager to get started, homework will begin next week!

I’ll leave you now with some pictures of a couple of little friends I made in Japan 🙂


Happy holidays!

Thank you to my beautiful class for this lovely poem and flowers presented to me at assembly this morning. Have a wonderful last two days of school and a fun but safe holiday! I will see you all next term 🙂
