Bahay Tuluyan Mini-Fair

Last Week we had a mini fair to raise money for Bahay Tuluyan. There were loads of different activities including face painting, hairspray, cake stall, book stall, toys and board games stall, mini games and many more. We raised $1,600 to put towards new rice fields to feed people in the Philippines.

A big thank you goes out to all the families and students who donate items or made goodies for the day!

Here are some of the happy snaps from the day:

One very smart animal



Telling the Time

This week we have been working on telling the time to the nearest one minute. Telling the time on analogue and digital clocks and comparing the two is hard but we used some games to try and help us. Here is the Middles practicing telling the time through games.

Book Week

Last Week was Book Week. We had a lot of fun doing different activities. We read the shortlisted books, we had a Book Week dress up parade, story time and we had an author and illustrator come and talk to us and show us some of his work. The author/ illustrator was Andrew Plant. 


I liked the Book Parade because everyone dressed up. I dressed up as Specky Magee – Jack

I enjoyed drawing pictures with Andrew Plant – Sophia

I enjoyed dressing up as Dr Who for the book parade – Luke

I dressed up as Geronimo Stilton for the book parade. I also enjoyed listen to Andrew Plant’s book about Poppies – Sam
