Comprehension Strategy, Writing Genre and PE Strand
We are taking a whole school approach to writing genres and comprehension strategies. This month we are focusing on ‘Procedure’ as our writing genre and ‘Prediction’ will be our comprehension strategy. Ms. Clarke’s 3rd class have agreed to display samples of their ‘Procedure’ writing in the school hall at the end of the month. This year we have decided to take a similar approach with PE. This month we will concentrate on ‘Games’ and ‘Athletics’. This will help our teachers with their short term and long term plans and provide more focus for the boys.
Space on Footpath
Unfortunately our school has limited space on Chapel Hill for parking. Please leave enough room on the footpath for pedestrians and buggies to pass by.
We are very proud of our Active Flag and hope to improve our fitness levels throughout the school. We will continue with our 9@9 on Friday mornings.
Sports and Social Club
Sports and Social Club will be commencing on Wednesday 19th September for five weeks. If you would like your son to participate in the club please contact Ms. O’Malley or Ms. Keane.
Marathon Kids will kick off on Monday 10th September for 5th and 6th class boys. The boys will cover various running challenges over the next eight weeks. The aim is to finish their last mile of the marathon (26.2 miles) in Marlow St. Stadium in November. This programme will be integrated with our SPHE lessons which will highlight the importance of exercise and healthy eating.
