Poems by room 5 children

My tree
My  tree is older than a bear,

My tree stands like a soldier,

My tree is taller than a giant
It’s rough like sharp wood,
It smells like a bran leaf
By Stanley

My tree

My tree   is older than me,

My tree stands like a   box,

My tree is   wider than a classroom,

My tree makes a   noise like a bird,

My tree is taller than a flower,

My tree is rough like a bumpy road,

My tree smells like a sock.

by Sam

My Tree

My tree is higher than my dad,

My tree stands like a wobble,

It’s wider than my spa pool,

It’s taller than my house,

It’s rough like bark.

Week 1

Welcome back to the new and last term for 2015. This term will fly by! 

Just a reminder about the transition to school survey...please return to school as and when you complete it. This will be important information as we move forward.

Poetry this term and we will be having a grandparents day in week 7 25 November.
Welcome to term 4 2015
Just a quick note to mention that we are exploring fractions in maths…..lots of halves, thirds and quarters talk at home!
We also have a focus on poetry this term. To begin this unit I would like you to have your child choose an object at home to bring into school so that we can do some initial simile A leaf, driftwood, something from the natural world, not a toy, nothing valuable.

We will investigate the five senses with the object.

Today we were measuring - what did we use and how did we do it?
We found out that you neede to have no gaps between our units of measure which could have been blocks or sticks ----they needed to be all the same size units so we could compare.

We used words like long/ short / tall/ wide/ thin/ measure/ units - longer/ shorter/ big/ little.

Some of the turtles were bigger than others and we had to put them in order from smallest to biggest.

Fundraising Initiative
The Enviro Group are initiating a ‘litterless’ fundraiser where every Wednesday we will be selling yummy items at morning break. Items will sell for either 50c or $1 and all funds will go to the School Fundraising Committee. Ideally we will be looking to sell cookies, slice, muffins etc.
How can you help? We are looking for volunteers to offer to bake a batch of something to sell. If we receive enough support, you would only be asked to do this once this year. In order to maximise profits, we are hoping that you could donate your time and ingredients please. We will happily reimburse as well.
If you think you can help, or would like to discuss this further, please contact Denis Tocker in Room 14, either in person or

What do you need to do: bake something that will suit most children, ideally 60-80 items, and bring them into Room 14 by 10.30am on the Wednesday of your week. They need to be free of any potential rubbish e.g. muffin paper.

"Jack Flash and the Jumping Beanstalk" by Gregory Cooper $4:50 

 It’s an environmental emergency of preposterous proportions! Giant pieces of garbage keep dropping on the hapless inhabitants of A Land Far Far Away and nobody knows who’s responsible. As usual when anything bad happens, all eyes turn to Jack Flash, the young boy with a long history of practical jokes and mischief making. The Mayor even decides to ‘cowfiscate’ his favourite cow and only friend Daisy as punishment. Jack knows the only way to clear his name is to find out who this giant litterbug really is, and with the help of a feisty Mexican Jumping Bean determined to sprout,Jack begins the climb of his life. Our popular writer Greg Cooper is back with more laugh-a-minute theatre catering for ages 5-13. This interactive adaptation of Jack and the Beanstalk will have your school (including teachers) on the edge of their seats from start to finish as they joinJack in his quest to save the environment.
