Our school Faction Cross Country is being held next Wednesday morning, the 2nd June. This event involves students from Years 3 to 6. Parents and family are all welcome to attend, the first event will start at 8:50am. A message will be sent home on Class Dojo over the next couple of days with more details.

NAPLAN

Congratulations to our Year 3 and 5 students for completing their NAPLAN assessments over the last two weeks. I am pleased to say we did not experience any technical difficulties, and all students put in their best efforts. With the assessments conducted online, we are expecting results in early Term 3.

School Development Day & Public Holiday

A reminder that there is a school development day (student free day) planned for Week 7, Friday 4th June. This is followed by the WA Day Public holiday on Monday 7th June. Students return to school on Tuesday 8th June.

Room 7 have been working hard so far this term, especially on preparing for and then doing their NAPLAN Tests.

We have also been preparing for our Assembly item for the 26th of May.

Our song is ‘Sing’ by Ben Lee and reminds us about the joys of singing and dancing to uplift our energies and have fun.

We have prepared some mind maps to share our feelings and beliefs and would like to share some with you.


The incursions purpose was to extend the student’s understanding of the different animals on a farm, what they provide us with (food and fibre) and how they are cared for ensuring their basic needs are met, such as food/nutrients, water, space, protection. Developing these understandings supports the student’s Design and Technologies knowledge and understanding and the technologies contexts of food and fibre production.

The students got to feed sheep, interact with the animals and learn about their basic needs. We all fell in love with the animals and had so much fun!

Hat_Sun.png

A ‘No Hat, Limited Outside Play’ policy is enforced at Byford Primary School all year.  Parents can assist us by reinforcing the need for protection from the sun by ensuring that students have a wide brim hat. Hats can be purchased through the school uniform shop next to Room 3.  Students who do not have a hat are instructed to play under sheltered areas such as the Undercover Area near the canteen. Caps are not acceptable as they do not provide adequate protection to the ears and back of the neck from the sun.
