Pass a story

We are practicing our storytelling skills at school this term. Here we are using our story cards to tell some very interesting tales. Every story should have a clear beginning, middle and end. We are practicing using sizzling starter sentences and lots of connecting words and adjectives. It's lots of fun!

Weather instruments

We learned all about weather recording instruments at school this week. We know about anemometers, barometers, rain gauges, wind socks and wind vanes. We made a simple wind sock using recycled plastic. We thought they looked like jellyfish!

Love is in the air..

Today we celebrate Valentine's day and Ash Wednesday. We made heart shaped sun catchers and beaded hearts. We also spoke to our parents and our teacher about our Lenten promises. See you all after mid term break!

We came across an interesting idiom today. We love learning about new words and phrases. We were talking about the idiom ' to see eye to eye with someone'. It's in one of our readers. We know what this means now so why not ask us about it? Sometimes we don't see eye to eye with our friends but we try.

Day 2: 10 @ 10

Today we took a trip around the world for our 10 at 10 challenge. Here you see us flying 5o a new destination. We travelled to India and Australia before coming home. It's lots of fun using your imagination!

Sleeping Beauty

What a performance! We were treated to a wonderful performance of Sleeping Beauty at school today. It was magical! St. Clare's really is the best 👍

Dictionary Detectives!

The girls are looking up words in the dictionary. It's a good idea to look up words you don't know in the dictionary if you come across some in your reading. It is also useful to check your spellings. Go a dictionary detective!

10 @ 10

We are taking part in Operation Transformation's 10 @ 10 again this year. We love being an active school! Look at the girls marching, jumping and lunging their way to better fitness! Keep it up girls.

Chinese New Year

We have been learning about Chinese New Year. We read a story about it and decided to make lanterns. We think they turned out very well!
