Welcome!

What a big storm we experienced on Thursday evening. I think a lot of us had a funny kind of Friday, some of us without internet, or internet that had a mind of its own. So once everything is working again, please make sure you have sent me your 'Family Portrait' writing, so we can share with each other. 

It has been exciting to have doors open and breezes, that are slightly warmer than ice, flowing through the house. I love having those experiences that remind you of the previous spring or summer.

Enjoy your day.

All the best,

Larissa

Welcome to Tuesday's lessons. 

I am loving your responses to the activities we have been doing. Thank you for sharing them with me. I am a little delayed in looking at everything, with the storm last week, but I am really appreciating the thought and effort you are putting into your work. 

I thought it would be fun for your classmates to see the space where each of you are doing your school work. If you would like to take a photo of your workspace - with you in it, if you're able - I can start a page for your classmates to view them in. 

Have great day!

Love Larissa

Hello dear students,

I hope you are enjoying the sun. 

I have emailed everyone a classmate's name, which you will need for one of today's activities. It is really important that you participate so that everyone receives something by mail. Your contribution really matters! Ask you parents to check their email and let you know who you have.

I also have to tell you all that it is so wonderful to see all the different ways in which you approach your work. It is really special to see your unique voice come through in your writing and drawing. Great job!

All the best,

Larissa

Hi! 

On Collins Street, in the city, you will find quite an iconic spot. Way up high on a building ledge, some peregrine falcons have decided to lay eggs. They have been using this spot to raise their families for thirty years now. There was very exciting news this week, when it was reported that an egg has been laid in one of the nesting boxes, which were put there to make a safe place for the falcons to sit on their 

eggs.  

Have a lovely day,

Larissa

Hi everyone - here we are at Friday!

 

Here is a maths joke - thanks to Michele, Elayna's mum.

Hopefully you have your received your classmate's address as an email to one of your parents. Please be in touch if you don't have it at the start of the day on Friday. 

Have a great weekend,

Love 

Larissa
