Thursday the 9th and Friday the 10th of May saw 18 keen netballers take on surrounding schools in the annual St Margaret’s Netball Tournament. Congratulations to the following mixed netball team for bringing the cup back to Beacy! Thank you to Mrs Ryan for all her coaching efforts.
As Naplan is starting next week for the grade 5’s, we have decided to practise with a twist! The students were required to complete an amazing race around the school answering problem solving questions and following clues to the next check point. The grade 6’s also joined in to practise their problem solving skills. This was a great way to get students outside on a beautiful day, running around and enjoying maths. Did this make maths more enjoyable and why?
The girls from Miss Backman’s class had a great time on Monday making play dough for the preps to use in their classroom. What are some ways you could use play dough in the classroom to help the preps learn?
Just a reminder that the Mothers Day Stall is on today. Please bring between $2 and $5 to pick up something to give to your mum or someone special on Sunday.
For the next couple of months our 5/6 students will be giving back to the school and local communities as part of our investigations sessions. Students will get the opportunity to help out at the local kinder, cfa, and nursing home, as well as assisting with jobs around the school such as computer maintenance, gardening, book returns, and working in the wetlands. Here’s a sneak peek of what they got up to this afternoon.
