Book Week 2020!

Today we celebrated Book Week at SMCM. The theme this year was Curious Creatures, Wild Minds.

It was great to see everyone dressed up as their favourite character, some even invented their own!

Check out some of the pictures form our parade today! You can also find the video of this on Twitter.

Specialist Day Week 1 Term 4

Hello Year 2s!

We hope you all had a great day remote learning yesterday for the first day back after the holidays. The countdown is on until we are back at school, hey?!

Remember this morning you have a Google Meet at 9am. I wonder who you will have today? Remember to put your self on mute when you enter the meet and use the chat to reconnect nicely with your friends.

Today you have Japanese, PE and Performing Arts. You can do them in what ever order you like. Remember to upload your work to Seesaw. We can’t wait to see what you get up to.

Have a great Specialist day! Email the teacher whose class it is if you have any questions.

Yumi, Kristie, Lisa, Jess and Yolanda 🙂

Wellbeing Week – Week 10 Term 3

This term has been a historical one at SMCM! Never before in history have schools spent a whole term learning from home.

We are very proud of the efforts of our students and families and the great achievements in learning you have made. Next week we are going to make sure we take care of our whole selves – our mental, physical, spiritual, social and emotional wellbeing.

Each day will begin with our 9am Google Meets to stay socially connected with our peers and teachers.

Then there will be 3 activities for the day which you can complete on your own, with your siblings or with another family member.

Each afternoon you will complete your Wellbeing Week Journal on Seesaw, save it as a draft and then on Friday share it with your teacher.

Specialist Day Tuesday 8th September 2020

Hello amazing Year 2 students! Can you believe it is Week 9?!

You have been part of history – completing your schooling remotely while helping to keep everyone as safe as possible from Covid 19. Well done on all the amazing, creative, wonderful things you have done on Tuesdays this term. It has been so fantastic for us as your teachers to see you continue to learn and grow even though we couldn’t be together. Go Year 2!

Tomorrow you have a Google Meet at 9am. It is with Kristie again – I wonder if you can find something in your house that you can bring to the Google Meet that starts with T? (T because you are in Year TWO!)

Remember you can do your lessons in any order you choose and don’t forget to email the teacher whose lesson it is if you need help. Our emails are on the first slides.

Have a wonderful day! We will see your work on Seesaw!

Lisa, Yumi, Kristie, Jess and Yolanda.

Indigenous Literacy Day!

It’s time to celebrate Indigenous Literacy Day!

For the first time ever, the Indigenous Literacy Foundation invites primary and early learners, 3-11 years of age, across Australia to a very special Indigenous Literacy Day celebration presented in collaboration with the Sydney Opera House.

It’s time to move, shake and sing with a catchy melody sung by Australia’s favourite pop star, Jessica Mauboy – in two Indigenous languages, Tiwi, Mangarrayi, and English plus share a book reading of Yu Sabi Densdensbad? (Can you Dance?) in Kriol, by Cheryl Lardy and in English by Justine Clarke. Hosted by Indigenous author and performer Gregg Dreise and TV presenter Natalie Ahmat, this event gives our younger audiences a celebratory experience of Indigenous language and literacy. There is even a sneaky, cheeky visit by children’s author Andy Griffiths!
