At the beginning of the year we made some changes to how we manage
homework based on survey feedback and
research evidence. Put simply, we want all children to read at home
every day and use Mathletics for Maths practice.
Children who are not yet independent readers, take home books at
their level and we want you to listen to them read
these books for practice.
We would also love you to read to your child. Our school
library and the local library have a wide selection of quality
literature that provides a great opportunity for you to read
and talk about books. By reading to your child AND talking about
the book you can enhance language and vocabulary
development, improve comprehension and enjoy quality time
Research conducted by the Victorian education department has
demonstrated that “the frequency of reading to
children at a young age has a direct causal effect on their
schooling outcomes regardless of their family background
and home environment”.
Take the opportunity in the coming school holidays to stock
up on some great books and snuggle up in a warm house with a hot
chocolate and a book – can’t think of a better
way to enjoy homework!!
Central Coast Dance Festival
Tonight I head out to the Laycock Street Theatre to watch
the Stage 2 dance group do their thing, and tomorrow night it’s
Stage 3. Good luck everyone – I know you’ll have fun
and do us proud.
Mrs Hardy and I saw our kinder dance group last Tuesday
night and they were awesome! They opened the show and were an
absolute delight to watch. Well done Mrs Fell, kids
and parents – what a team!
School reports go out on the last day of school next week, 26
If your child will not be at school on this day and you would
like the report mailed to you, please provide a stamped,
self-addressed A4 sized envelope by 25 June to the office. Reports
will not be handed out earlier.
5 Lands Walk
This term our students have been working on 1500 decorations that
participants in the 5 Lands Walk will use to
decorate the path from MacMasters Beach to Copacabana
The decorations, that take inspiration from the Indian ethnic
community, are colourful and very symbolic of the
theme of the event – Connecting Communities.
Cross your fingers for fine weather and come along to see
our dance groups, choir and Aboriginal dancers of the Possum Pack
who will be performing at multiple venues on
the day! Please come along to support them and share in the fun and
excitement of this great community event.
Hope you had a great week at our great school. Enjoy the walk from
Macs to Copa on Saturday – take a
brolly just in case!

the book Rain Dance.
The Rain Dance is about the hot, blazing, sticky, humid and
disgusting desert that a family lived in waiting for rain and
fresh water to drink. After a long time there was a cold
breeze with some dark grey clouds on top of the sky. The
blazing sun shines on top of the tiny town.
Rain Dance is about rain finally coming to the desert. The
scratches along the deep cracked sand and dust flow. The girl
is waiting for rain to come. Finally the wet rain filled the
dusty ground with cold, wet and fresh water. The great
swirling sand was the start of the rain.
Rain Dance is a story about people that live in a hot place
where the blazing sun makes the crispy sand burning hot. The
Dad went to the bank so they can keep their home. The rain
finally comes after two years. They were relieved that they
could keep their home and get some rain.
Rain Dance is about the hard breaking sand and crashing
wind. The girl was dancing to the crashing, thundering
lightning. The wind was shaking wildness and madness. The
rain is striking and thunder is rolling down her cheeks and
lightning bolts steam cracking sand with burning lava in
outside the classroom for being safe, respectful learners.
