Dear 3 / 4 K,

I hoped you enjoyed the David Miller visit yesterday.  He certainly is a very talented man the way he can make those paper sculptures and use them in picture story books.  We will be doing some follow-up work about it today and also in the next week or so.

Don’t forget that you can get your homework done by doing it at Mrs. Joyce’s room at lunchtime today.  It is due on Friday.

Have a great day,

From Mr. Kilmartin

Dear 3 / 4 K,

It was great to see some of you at the Open Night last night.  I hope you enjoyed going around to play some of the maths games in the different classrooms.

You can enter your decorated paper planes into the competition if you pay the dollar entry fee.

Those children who didn’t do their Maths On-Demand test last Wednesday will be doing it today in the Computer Lab after P.E.  If you did finish it you will be able to complete some publishing.

You can do your homework in Mrs. Joyce’s classroom at lunchtime today.  Those children who do their homework will be able to play in Mr. Andrew’s game on Friday at assembly.

Have a great day,

From Mr. Kilmartin
