Congratulation goes to Ana in our class for winning the Gold Medal in the English ICAS Exams. Ana’s mark was the highest in all of Australian and she will be going to receive her medal at a special ceremony later in the year.

Farewell Olivia

Today was Olivia our College teacher’s last day in 4.5. We were extremely sad to see her go and everyone is going to miss her.

Thanks Olivia for being an awesome college teacher, we have been so lucky to have you in our class. I know you will go on and become an awesome class teacher!

Check out this little video me made for her! We think it’s kinda funny!

Check out this video that the Crusaders reading group made at reading time. It is called ‘In Training’ and I think they did a great job!

Assembly Dance

Check out this cool dance that Olivia is teaching R5 for assembly in W6. We have only been practising for a few days but the dance is beginning to take shape!

Fractions Rap

In Math time we have been learning about Fractions. So far we have been learning how to recognise fraction symbols and names and how to find a fraction of a group of objects.

Check out this cool video I found on the internet about Fractions. It is made by Mr Duey, a teacher in USA!

Breakfast Cereal

During this term Rooms 3, 6 and 5 have been working together to produce their very own breakfast cereal. R6 are making the product, R3 are packaging it and R5 are marketing it. 

The ingredients we have used for the cereal are granola, puffed rice, mango, yoghurt covered raisins and sweetened with stevia and honey.

If you would like to purchase our cereal we will be selling it in Week 9 at 8.30 outside the school office. The price is $6.

We appreciate your support and all profits raised are going towards the school art space.


Tonight was the Russell Street School Production at the Regent Theatre. The theme was a night at the Oscars and each performed a dance. 

Check out R5′s awesome effort!


Today R5 and R4 presented assembly at school. One of our items was the song cups that Olivia has been teaching the class. Here is a video of our performance! Didn’t they do great!

Cups Song

Tomorrow R5 are presenting assembly with their buddy class R4. One of the items that they are going to perform is the cups song that Olivia has been teaching them. 

Below is a video of the song that we are performing tomorrow. Can everyone please watch it and practice their parts tonight. Can’t wait for tomorrow!
