Year 5 Teach KPlatypus Students

Last Thursday, Mr Butchatsky and his Year 5 Reading Group prepared a wonderful lesson on the meaning of our National Anthem. 
The Year 5 students prepared a powerpoint presentation on their laptops to help explain some of the concepts to Kindergarten.
The small groups spent 10-15 minutes working together and then at the end of the lesson the students sang the National Anthem together.
It was encouraging to see the older students teaching the younger students.
Thank you for visiting us and sharing your knowledge.

Mystery Reader Week 4-Platypus Class

Last Friday our Mystery Reader brought along a book called Cushie Butterfield. It was a funny book about a cow who pretended to be sick to get out of going to school. Miraculously Cushie was always better on the weekends.
Thanks for coming to our class and spending some time with us.

Two Notices

Dear Parents,
We have named our hermit crab 'Shellie". Thank you for helping with the notes.

The permission note for the Athletic Carnival has two sides to fill in.
On the back, it has a sausage sizzle and soft drink. Please be aware it should say 'popper' instead.
If your child doesn't want a sausage sandwich they can bring their normal lunch on the day.
Sport houses will be allocated for each student soon. If a student has an older sibling at Inaburra they will put into the same house. This means that they can support their house by wearing the appropriate colour on the day. 

Please return the completed permission slips as soon as possible.
Thank you.
