My final blog post for 2017! Thank you so much for a wonderful year and for all the lovely gifts, cards and kind words this week. Today as we marked the roll for the last time this year I asked the students to reflect on 2017 and choose one word to describe it. Some of my favourites were- amazing, fun, crazy, exciting, exhausting and dab. There were lots of ‘I don’t knows’ which I completely understand given the difficulty of choosing just one word to encapsulate all the amazing times we’ve had. Farewell to our beautiful Year 6s! It was an emotional afternoon saying goodbye. We will miss you but know you’ll come back and visit. Delightful Year 5s, see you soon! I’ll leave you with some final photos of Year 6 today. Have a fabulous Christmas and relaxing break and see you in 2018!
Thank you for the toilet roll donations! We used these to create some beautiful snowflake ornaments. I’m not usually one for Christmas craft but when I saw these I couldn’t resist and I think the kids have done a great job designing their own snowflake. Hopefully these will be hanging majestically from your Christmas tree this season.
This week we celebrated the end of the year with our class party and secret Santa. Thank you to everyone who brought in some tasty treats to share. As part of the OC tradition, we had our annual Pi Challenge – a competition to see who can accurately recite the most digits of Pi. Blade did a super job with 10, Sam came up with 15, Grayson did an impressive 22, Oscar smashed it with 121 and Noah K absolutely blew us away by doing 201! Wow! Very impressive! (I can do 3.14… that’s it). Naturally, we celebrated with pie.
