All week we will be celebrating Education Week. The title of the week is ‘Crack the Code with Maths’. Our students will be participating in challenging and fun activities based around Mathematics. This will include the following activities:
· Guess how many stars in the jar? The students will need to use their very best estimation skills to guess the correct number. A special prize will go to the class with closest guess!
· Open Morning Tuesday 19th May 9:30 – 10:30am: For both prospective parents and our school community, this is a chance to take a look inside the classrooms while our students are busy learning. Our Grade 6 leaders will be leading tours for parents and visitors. Don't miss the unveiling of our Grade 6 Legacy project at 9:20am! It looks absolutely breathtaking!
· Open Night Wednesday 20th May 6:00 – 8:00pm: Our Open Night is a wonderful celebration of the learning at TPPS. Our entire community is invited to come in and take a look inside all classrooms, participate in fun family maths activities, listen to our wonderful instrumental music students and experience what a fantastic learning community we have. Our Grade 6 leaders will also be available to take prospective parents on school tours.
· RRIPO Wednesday afternoon: Our RRIPO peer mentoring groups will be meeting for a special afternoon this Wednesday. I can’t wait to catch up with my RRIPO group!
· Hands on Maths rotations: This Friday our Prep – Gr 2 students and Gr 4 – Gr 6 students will participate in exciting maths activities and games. The students will rotate between classes and experience amazing Maths activates at each stop!
· Scratch computer programming tool: Our Grade 4-6 students will experiment with the coding tool. With Scratch, you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations — and share your creations with others in the online community. Check out the link below to learn more.
It is going to be a huge celebration of learning at TPPS this week. There is a clear reason why we are one of the highest achieving schools in Mathematics in Victoria. Our challenging and engaging Mathematics program allows our students to achieve their very best. This week is a wonderful celebration of our learning community and our exceptional achievements in teaching and learning.
I hope to see you all at our Open Night on Wednesday to share the excitement of learning with our entire community.
Happy Education Week!
