End of Term One: Happy Holidays!

Our first term for 2013 comes to an end today.

The students in 4KM and 4KJ have had a fantastic nine weeks and have already learnt a lot.

Some of the term highlights include:

We have some fabulous things planned for Term Two including Bike Ed, the return of our student teachers and the conclusion of the Our World, Our Numbers global project.

Of course there will also be more amazing things to learn in literacy, maths and inquiry.

We wish all of our blogging community a very happy holidays.

4KM and 4KJ will be back on Monday 15th April.

What was your Term One highlight?

What are you looking forward to in Term Two?

What are your plans for the Easter holidays?

Happy Easter!

Mrs Morris and Miss Jordan hope all of the 4KM and 4KJ students are enjoying their holidays so far!

It has been terrific to see some students commenting on our blog over the past week, well done!

Here is a fun Easter puzzle for you to try.

Click the play button and time yourself by watching the clock on the left hand side.

The photo in the puzzle is of some of the Easter eggs Miss Jordan received from students last week. It is safe to say that some of the eggs didn’t make the photo as they have already been eaten!

How long did it take you to solve the puzzle?

Do you have a favourite type of chocolate?

Does your family have any special Easter traditions?

Last Day of Term One – Happy Easter!

Today, Friday 30th March, is the last day of Term One.

The students in 4KM and 4KJ have had a fantastic start to the year and everyone is looking forward to the two week holiday break.


Today was a special day because it was the Leopold Primary School Cross Country. It was held on the school oval and all students from Prep to Grade Six were involved. The students in the 8/9/10 age group had to run a challenging 1.2km route around the school grounds. The 11 years age group had to complete the course twice, running a total of 2.4km.

Here is a bird’s eye view of the route the Grade Three to Six students ran.

It was terrific to see everyone try their very best during the Cross Country. Some special achievements to acknowledge:

Elijah (4KM) won the 8/9/10 boys event.

Hannah (4KJ) won the 11 years girls event.

Becky (4KM) came third in the 11 years girls event.

Participating in the Cross Country and cheering for all of the other students was so much fun.

A big thanks to Mr Hair for organising this terrific school event!


It has been a busy nine weeks for 4KM and 4KJ. We enjoyed practising a variety of reading strategies, focussing on descriptive writing and learning about place value in Maths. Some other highlights include:

– Skyping with Mr Avery and Mrs Yollis

House Athletic Sports

Talking to British adventurer, Alistair Humphreys

Learning about Australia

Reading Day

Quadblogging with Mrs Yollis, Mr Salsich and Mrs McKenzie


We are looking forward to Easter, which falls in the very middle of our holidays. We wish all of our blogging buddies are very Happy Easter! Enjoy some chocolate and have a relaxing break!

We will be back at school for Term Two on Monday 16th April.
