We have been learning about forces in Kinder, investigating what happens when we use the ‘pull’ force; things move closer to us and when we use the ‘push’ force things move away from us. We have been noticing how our bodies move; backward, forward, zig zag and side to side. We have drawn how things and people move.

A number of our students entered the Original Poem section of the only event of this year’s Burnie Eisteddfod.
The poems were judged by the Europa Poets Society.
They wish to pass on their congratulations to all the entries and to the teachers who helped their students to enter them in the Eisteddfod.
Congratulations to the following placegetters: Seth B, Nina, Eve A, Tobias J, Elohi C, Maitland S, Oliver D, Mia F, Ruby W and Bronte R.
They were delighted that such great poetry is happening within the schools.
The Burnie Eisteddfod hopes to display the winners at the Burnie Library.
National Tree Day is held annually, with the purpose of this day to enable students to connect with nature by planting native trees and shrubs to improve our natural environment. Trees are natural carbon sequesters – meaning they absorb and capture carbon from our atmosphere. The timber they produce is also an important, environmentally friendly building material because it stores carbon and is a renewable resource. So it's important we continue to plant trees and look after our natural environment.
This year our Sustainability Leaders decided that the bank on our school oval needed an improvement. We ordered 40 native shrubs and plants to enhance the look of the bank. Our four Grade 6 Sustainability Leaders (Charlotte W, Jack B, Ayden D & Rungsiman M) with the help of the Prep to Grade 5 in class Sustainability Leaders planted these shrubs and plants on our bank. It will be interesting for these students to see the growth of these shrubs and plants over their years at Burnie Primary.
Although we do not have a set date for school photos for 2020 yet, we can assure you they will be done. Unfortunately, due to all the restrictions with Covid-19, we had to delay our school photos. We will let parents/carers know a date when it is set. Thank you for your patience with this.
At the moment this means that we are not to be having cooking or food preparation at school unless is an essential part of the curriculum and strict hygiene and management practices are in place.
At no time should food be shared.
Students are not able to bring food from home such as birthday cakes etc..to share with others.
Thank you for your understanding.
Issue 5 booklets will be handed to each student with the closing date for orders being 10 August 2020
If you need help, simply call Scholastic Customer Service team on: 1800 021 233 between the hours of 8am to 5pm.
How do I Order?
Simply review your child's Book Club catalogue and either sign in or register your account.
Click on ORDER and then select your school and your child's class* .
Add your child's first name & last initial (so the school knows who the book is for) PLEASE NOTE: Your child's details will never be shared with 3rd parties OR used for marketing purposes - this is for distribution purposes only.
Enter the item number from the Book Club catalogue.
All orders are sent directly to the school for submission to Scholastic. Books will still be delivered to your child's classroom if you order by the close date.
Afterwards, there's no need to return paper order forms or payment receipt details back to your school!
We ask that you clearly label your child's uniform items (including hats). This enables us to return your child's items back to them if they are handed in to Lost & Found. Without a name on the items they all look the same and we are unable to locate the correct owner.
If you haven't labeled your child's uniform items we ask that you please do so, if you do not have a permanent marker at home you are more than welcome to bring the items to the office and we can label them for you.
Friday mornings 9.15-10.20am in the Music Room/JMC.
