One 2 One Learning @ Laburnum PS

1:1 Netbooks in Grades 4, 5 & 6

Brilliant Week

It has been a beautiful, brilliant and busy time in Prep the last few weeks. Each classroom has been positively BUZZING and BURSTING with energy.

Any guesses at what sound we have /b/een looking at this week?

The last two weeks has seen a few significance events take place. The prep students were lucky enough to have a visit from a real life policeman. Detective Taylor, who has been coming to Laburnum for 9 years now, taught us the important role that he and his fellow policemen play in the community to keep us safe. The highlight of the visit was seeing each student getting to go inside the police car and testing out the siren. After a 106 tests, the teachers concluded it well and truly worked.IMG_9371

Last Friday, to consolidate our understanding of the /c/ and /k/ sound the preps were invited to wear crazy socks. It was fair to say that they jumped into this challenge with both feet (literally). There were bright, odd, long, short and even homemade socks that had everyone else in the whole school saying. These are some “CRAZY SOCKS!”


As we near the end of the second term it is important to recognise the hard work that the preps have put in over the last 74 days. The efforts during class and at home have resulted in so many quality learning experiences and outstanding memories. As their teachers we are certainly excited to experience further growth and more wonderful times with each of them in Semester 2.

Just a reminder to that Parent Teacher interview will be held on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday during Week 11 this term. You can make a time to see your child’s classroom teacher by visiting the following link and making an appointment. We look forward to discussing and celebrating so many achievements.
