Guest Post by Mrs Morris

Dear 4KJ and 4LB (4KM),

How are you all? I hope you are all enjoying your time with Miss Jordan and Mr Bao.

Your grade four year is quickly coming to an end. I bet you can’t believe you’ll be in grade five in a couple of months time!

I am enjoying my new role as a stay-at-home mum, however, I do miss all the students and teachers at Leopold Primary School.

Novalie was three months old yesterday. She is growing up quickly and changing all the time.

Novalie has learnt many new skills such as:

  • reaching for her toys
  • putting her hands in her mouth
  • rolling from her tummy to her back
  • holding her head and neck up strongly
  • smiling, and making lots of different noises and squeals

She enjoys doing many things such as:

  • going for walks in her pram
  • shaking her rattle
  • attending Rhyme Time at the library
  • kicking her legs in her bouncy chair
  • listening to stories and looking at books

It sounds like you’ve been doing some exciting things at school. You were lucky to have your wonderful student teachers back for a few weeks.

The topics you’ve been learning about in Inquiry, Maths and Literacy sound really interesting. I’d love to hear more about them.

I hope you’ll be able to leave a comment and tell me what I’m missing at school!

Your former teacher,

Mrs Morris

Leave Mrs Morris a comment and tell her what you’ve been learning about and what has been happening at Leopold Primary School.

Wet Frogs: By Trent and Millie

This is a guest post by Trent (4KM) and Millie (4KJ).

At Assembly on Monday, Trent, James, Jess, Kayley, Lachie and Ms Rollinson performed a play. The play was about frogs. Confused? 

First we all had to wait until it was our turn to go up on stage. When it was finally our turn to go up, we got into our positions and got our script ready. We performed our best and had a red hot go like a tomato that has tried to escape from the BBQ!

The point of the story was that you should be wet frogs not dry frogs on land. When I say being wet frogs I mean get in there and have a go don’t stay and talk about what you will do, all speech must be backed up with action.

We all need to be wet frogs in the classroom and have a go!

What stories of being a wet frog do you have?

Are you able to have a go and try?
