Dear 2K,

I will be giving a sticker from Stretch to those children who bring back their sheet with the phone number of the phone they would use at home in an emergency.  I hope you got an adult to fill out the other form and place it somewhere you can get to quickly in case of an emergency.

The Fresh Market people will be visiting us on Friday.  We would like everybody to go so please bring back your form and $2.00.

Have a great day,

From Mr. Kilmartin

Dear 2K,

Term 3 is Concert term.  Our grade’s Concert practice day is Tuesday which means we will be having our first lesson today.  There are some changes to how it will look this year and I will explain these to you later.  The school will be performing The Lion King.

We have got a couple of visitors coming into our classroom on Friday.  I have a note from them that you can take home today.  I will also be showing you a video about one of the visitors today.

The Friday Reading Reward will continue again this term.  I will talk more about that with you.

Have a great day

Dear 2K,

Welcome back to Term 3.  I hope you enjoyed your 2 week holidays.

I am looking forward to hearing about all the things you did at school in Term 2.  I have been told that it was a very busy one and that you worked hard on your learning.

Miss Crowe will be on Long Service Leave this term and she is being replaced by Mrs. Dickson.  This means you will be having Mrs. Dickson for ICT this term.  It is still at the same time, which is on Monday at 12.15 pm.

Have a great first day back,

From Mr. Kilmartin

Traditional Tales


Folktales are the tales people tell and are usually passed down by word of mouth, rather than being written in books. Sometimes people write down these tales in order to keep the stories of a particular community. The important thing is that folktales have no author. It just comes from the culture and is carried forward by constant retelling.

Fairy Tales

A fairy tale is a story which is often intended for children. It features characters such as elves, goblins, wizards and fairies. The settings are often in a fantasy or make-believe place and magic can be involved in the story.

Myths and Legends

A myth is a story that talks about events or objects that are important to a specific culture.

A legend often has an element of truth to the story but this can be exaggerated.



A fable is a short fiction story that has a moral or teaches a lesson. It often has animals in the story that can speak.

Dear 2K,

On Friday the Computer Lab was moved into the Staff Room.  I am not sure if the computers will all be set up in time for your ICT lesson today.  You will find out after recess.

All Library books are due back at school by tomorrow.

Have a great day,

From Mr. Kilmartin
