Wrapping up Christmas Presents without wasting paper

In 3/4S we had a challenge to wrap up Christmas presents to save paper. We started with a 3x3x3 cube and problem solved the possibilities of wrapping the cube without overlapping paper. 

Some of us found 9 different ways of wrapping paper without overlapping. We wonder how many different ways you can find. 

It was fun and challenging. Anthony thought it was a little frustrating when you thought it was going to work but it didn’t because it was a reflection of another net. 

Jack thought that once you got into the thinking it became easier to find the combinations. 

Ava and Stephanie thought that working together was a plus.

3/4 Level Carol Singing

Tonight, at St Charles Borromeo, the school community met in the school grounds to watch the students from each level, perform 2 Christmas carols.

The 3/4 Level children sang their little hearts out with much gusto! They sang ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’ and ‘Here Comes Santa Claus’.

It was a lovely night, with many families mingling together, sharing food, drinks and loads of conversations. A fantastic way to celebrate our fabulous community spirit!

Snowflakes 3/4S

For  Maths today we made 6 pointed snowflakes.  We made them out of A4 paper. Instead of having 90 degree angles we had to fold our paper to get 60 degree angles. 

Usually when we make snowflakes we make them with 4 points – this is because we fold to have right angles.

 Can you work out how to fold with 60 degree angles to make a 6 pointed snowflake? 


Elf on the shelf

We have a very naughty elf at our house. She has been causing lots of mischief such as…                       1. Taking pictures with my camera                             2. Bungie jumping                                                 3. Eating chocolates e.t.c.

This morning the Year 5/6 level led our Advent reflection. The second Advent candle was lit and this candle is called the ‘Bethlehem candle’. This candle reminds us that Jesus was born in Bethlehem. This candle is purple which reminds us that it was king who was born in a manger.

The Gospel was about John the Baptist preaching a message in the desert. We reflected on what this means for us today. The following questions were reflected upon; 

  • What does a peaceful and just world look like?
  • What does a peaceful and just world feel like?
  • What does a peaceful and just world sound like?
