LEARN­ING HIGH­LIGHTS IN TERM 4

South Burnett Times - - SOUTH BURNETT SCHOOL NEWS -

ST PAT’S has been learn­ing how to cook dif­fer­ent dishes like pavlova, Tim Tam balls and mint slice. We have been cook­ing with the guid­ance of our amaz­ing teach­ers and help­ful staff.

We have learnt ex­cel­lent team­work and great so­cial skills. When we work to­gether, we get great marks. It also helps with fur­ther skills in life like cook­ing and great com­mu­ni­ca­tion. — Writ­ten by Alex Adams, Ruby Alexan­der, Brax­ton Wilkins ( Year 5)

Sham­rock Space

IN THE heart of St Pa­trick’s there is a place that is shaped like a sham­rock.

The Sham­rock Space is used for cel­e­bra­tions, play time and to re­mind us of the An­zacs.

It re­minds us of the An­zacs be­cause it has a mu­ral of pop­pies and some rose­mary planted above it.

The Sham­rock Space fea­tures fake grass, in­spir­ing words ce­mented in the ground, four raised gar­den beds and a hand- made wooden cross that re­minds us of Je­sus’ sac­ri­fices.

It also in­cludes some fan­tas­tic art­work from lo­cal artist Dave White and the stu­dents of St Pa­trick’s. — Writ­ten by Jack Mar­shall, Jay­cie Trace, Seth Giles, Sally Robin­son ( Year 5)

Our learn­ing space

DUR­ING term four, LG4 has had some amaz­ing class­room ren­o­va­tions, such as blue and green vel­cro walls, an awe­some Zen Zone and also, one of our favourites, flex­i­ble seat­ing.

The vel­cro walls are amaz­ing and help­ful be­cause you can eas­ily put stuff on the walls with­out a strug­gle.

The Zen Zone is a safe place you can go to if you are sad or stressed. It has stress toys and cush­ions, along with a tent.

Fi­nally, we have flex­i­ble seat­ing which is where you can sit wher­ever you want with­out any strug­gles or fights. — Writ­ten by James Speight ( Year 6), Liv Smith, Amelia Smith, Isaac Thom­son ( Year 5)
