BYOLT  for Year 5 2018
Mr Nolan has put a video link on the School Bag App. This provides important information in regards to the technology your child will be using next year in Year 5. Any questions in regards to this technology please direct to Mr Nolan or Mrs Stockey.

The children have been asked to bring newspaper and empty paper towel rolls to school this week for our Science project. If you are able to provide any it would be appreciated.

Welcome to Week 6

                               Welcome to Term 4 Week 6
Thank you for sending your children with resources for their Science Design and Make task last week. They had lots of fun making and testing a waterproof and impact resistant package.  

Important Message from Nr Nolan regarding BYOLT 2018
Dear Year 4 parents,
Thank you to the parents who have contacted the school to enquire about the “bring your own learning tool” (BYOLT) program for next year. The BYOLT program allows students in Stage 3 to bring their own learning device to school for the purposes of learning.

We understand that some parents would like to purchase their child’s device soon, but we would kindly ask that you wait until the message about BYOLT goes out next week. The message will outline the designated device to be used by students, expectations of student’s using their own device at school and how the device will be used to develop your child’s learning.
 Thank you 
Kind regards, 
Ben Nolan
Digital Technologies Support Teacher

Year 4 RLA Results

Welcome to Week 5 Term 4



Welcome to Week 5
Science Design and Make Task
On Monday this week the Year 4 students will be completing a Design and Make task as part of our Science unit ‘Material World and Built Environments.’

In order to complete this task we have asked the students to supply some recycled and environmentally friendly materials from home. Hopefully the children have these supplies ready to bring along to school.

4G Bike Safety - from Mrs Prince
In week 5 and 6 4G will be completing a brochure on bike safety rules, appropriate/safe cycling clothing and cycling paths in the local area.
It would be wonderful if the children can bring to school pictures from magazines, leaflets or the internet to illustrate their writing.

Ideas for pictures might include :

⏺ A person wearing a helmet.
⏺ A bike bell.
⏺ Bright clothing.
⏺ Closed in shoes, trainers.
⏺ Reflectors and lights.
⏺ people cycling in single file.
⏺ Maps of the local cycling paths.

Locally and globally, Catholic Mission answer the call to love God and to love others. Socktober is just one way that our school can fundraise and engage in advocacy and mission activities for Catholic Mission during World Mission Month in October.

We hope you can help to support this worthy cause.
