Literacy Lift Off is taking place in 1st class this term. Children are working at 5 different stations. The focus is on sounds, writing, reading. This year we have added a new station – using our tablets – where children listen to stories on the tablet. Thanks to 6th class for helping out.
Children from 3rd to 6th class took part in an internet safety talk today. A large number of the children are active on the internet when at home so the talk was to help them stay safe online. Thanks to Lurtell for facilitating the talk.

3rd class visited Tumble Jungle in Ballina as a special treat before the Halloween break. The children had 2 hours of activities and lots of fun.
5th class doing some Maths Week Probability Challenges in maths. The children used tally sheets to record how often they threw numbers with dice. Then they recorded the results when they threw two dice. The most frequent answer was 7. We think this is because we had more ways to make 7. The least frequent was 1. Do you know why?
