At Grandparents Day, which was today, I did not have a grandparent come. But I did have my Grandparent’s cousin. We read together and the book we read was called Barbie. Most of the time my special friend and I threaded beads on the string. My special friend’s was called Narelle. Mum, Ella and I took her over to the hall. All of us had fun.

Our Assembly Performance

On Friday 13th March, JAS performed at assembly. They all did a fantastic job and it was great to see so many parents there to watch and support the students. For those who couldn’t make it, here’s a video of the performance for you to enjoy!

Odd and Even Numbers

Today in Maths we learnt about odd and even numbers.

An odd number has a 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9 in the ones place (at the end of the number).

An even number has a 2, 4, 6, 8 or 0 in the ones place (at the end of the number).

Here’s a little video you can watch to help you learn odd and even numbers.
