We have our ALiM Whanau Connection Day today! Thank you to those parents from the middle school who are able to come out today and join in some maths fun with their child.
Thank you to those who have gone through their R.E books with their child and helped to fill in the feedback form. Can all R.E books please be returned to school before the end of term.
Please note that the form about class preference for your child next year, is due Friday 29th September. If you do not have one please see me.
We are running low on headphones in the class. They are really important - especially for those children who are on Lexia. These can be purchased from the school office.
For Golden Time this week we are having a Pyjama Party! Don't forget to pack your child's pyjamas in their bags before they come to school tomorrow.
I thought I'd post a logic and reasoning puzzle for you to solve with Mum and Dad. Give it a try!
A man has a wolf, a goat, and a cabbage. He must cross a river with the two animals and the cabbage. There is a small rowing boat, in which he can take only one thing with him at a time. If, however, the wolf and the goat are left alone, the wolf will eat the goat. If the goat and the cabbage are left alone, the goat will eat the cabbage.
The Question: How can the man get across the river with the two animals and the cabbage?
