Hello! My name is Miss D and I'm excited to be teaching and learning with Simon in 3C this term as a Teacher Candidate. I'm currently undertaking a Masters of Primary Teaching at The University of Melbourne and in my spare time like to play bass guitar and ride my bike. My favourite food is nachos and my favourite colour is orange. As a teacher I am very impressed by students who take initiative to help each other and look after one another - looking forward to seeing this in 3C.
This week Ms D will be joining us as a Teacher Candidate.
She is from Melbourne Uni and will be with us on Mondays and Tuesdays this term, and for a two week block at the beginning of Term 4.

You can find a letter about costumes for our school production below. If you can help out with anything, please let us know. Our costume is a plain singlet of any bright colour and bright summery shorts. Please name them, bring them in a named bag and we can hold onto them until the concert.
Also, as our school is now using Compass, you can inform the school of any upcoming student absences, or notify the school of a reason for a past absence.
Finally, Jeans For Genes Day this Friday the 3rd. Gold coin donation for a good cause.
Our spelling words this week are contractions.
We've been learning about apostrophes and what they do to words.
We know that contractions are two words joined together, that use an apostrophe to signify missing letters. We also know that the apostrophe signifies missing vowels.
she'll wasn't wouldn't you've could've doesn't we're he's what're
mightn't they're when's
