Bilar

WELCOME TO BILAR - MRS ELIZABETH MARONEY


Release from face to face (RFF)
Monday – Mrs Caroline Duke (Library)
Wednesday – Ms Maria Murphy (ICT/CAPA)

Welcome to class Bilar. The word Bilar is an Aboriginal word and means casuarina tree. Our class is a Stage 2 class with a relatively even mix of Year 3 and Year 4 students. The students are ready for a year of educational and personal growth.

As the class teacher, I encourage students to read daily (at school and at home) to promote fluency and comprehension, to increase their vocabulary and to develop a love of discovering something new every time they open a book. A word, an idea, a new way of looking at things or a new fact.

Homework – is set each Monday. Home reading is included as part of homework. If you, as a parent/carer read with or discuss your child’s reading with them, it would be appreciated. Spelling work is set each Monday and addresses the many sound patterns our English language incorporates. Mathematics activities will also be a part of your child’s homework. Any completed homework will be collected on Fridays.

Absences:
If your child is away from school due to sickness or holiday, please send a note/Dojo indicating the reason as soon as your child returns to school. If your child arrives at school after the 9am bell, a late note is required from the front office.
If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact me. You can make an appointment by leaving a message with the office, sending a note with your child or contacting me via Class Dojo.

I look forward to a year of student discovery, engagement and progress. Please keep the lines of communication open – we are a team in your child’s learning journey.
