I notice…I wonder…

Year 3 have once again been making mathematical explorations with the Cuisenaire rods. As we are looking at the Ancient Egyptians, we thought it would be an idea to build a flat 2D shape of a pyramid using the rods.

Once built, we observed and recorded what we noticed and what we wondered about our creations. These ideas were shared and discussed – check out our photos to see what original ideas we came up with!

What a lovely belated Christmas treat!

This week, the Year 1s had a lovely surprise when the Year 6s invited them to listen to their Christmas stories.  Year 6 had worked hard researching, planning, writing, editing, publishing and illustrating their very own Christmas stories and the Year 1 class were a willing audience.

In pairs, the Year 6s patiently read their stories to the Year 1s who enjoyed hearing all about the adventures of elves, reindeer, Santa and his sleigh.  Despite it being a little after Christmas, the stories sparked lots of conversations about the lovely holiday season the children had all had.

We look forward to lots more joint year group activities as the year goes on!

Thank you Mr Jason and the Year 6s!

Middle School Bag4Life Project – available now!

Did you know that supermarkets around the TCI will not be providing plastic bags after this month? Well, we did – so children of Provo Middle School set about making pointillism-style Bags4Life to help you carry your groceries!

Each piece of artwork was inspired by the TCI’s Beautiful By Nature animals. Done in a pointillism style, they were painted dot-by-dot by our Middle School students.

Our bags are reusable and durable, making them an environmentally friendly alternative to plastic. And we think they look great too!

Our bags are available at the Middle School and will be sold at Provo Primary School for the week of January 14th-18th at our 3pm collection time. They cost $20 and all profits will go towards the Year 7 end of year field trip.

We hope that you like our Beautiful By Nature designs – pick up a bag today!
