Morning Routine

May 12, 2017

Every morning 5th and 6th class start the day with several brain teasers and questions to get us thinking. We start with a word conundrum and then do a maths conundrum, then we complete 10 maths questions and a brain teaser. After that the whole class would attempt to get the fastest time in the maths countdown game. After all these questions and quizzes Mr. Barrett starts the real work.


New Finished Library

May 11, 2017

This week Mr. Barrett has completed the New Library complete with all the books and book cases that was in the old library. Here is an opinion about the new library from a pupil in 6th class “I love the new library I also helped move books into the library so came across books that I had never seen before and I think this will be a great place in the future because it is closer to the classrooms and on rainy days we won’t have to go outside to the prefab.” Here are some pictures of the new finished library.
