What a busy week it has been yet again. We have been getting organised for next Thursday nights concert. Please refer to the school newsletter for details about when families can set up their chairs. It should be a great night.
If you need any help with costumes, please let me know.
We have been coding with the children in 01. Coding in simple terms is the language that computers use to work. We have spent time working on “unplugged” activities. That is activities that do not require a computer, we have given directions to a friend, made tracks and maps. I’m sure your child will explain some of the activities to you. After practicing these skills we can now give instructions to the bee bots. We played with the bee boys and those on the iPad. For some, this was tricky work..but fun nonetheless. Hope you like the photos.
If your child still has a library book, we ask that it is returned as soon as possible. There is no more borrowing for the year. We have returned all of our classroom library books and readers. As we have very few books, I’d like to encourage your child to bring a book or two from home. They need to be “good fit books.” That is books that your child can read most of the words, so it fits reading ability, something your child wants to or enjoys reading, it fits interest and one that will fit the reading box. If you send along a book, please ensure your child has his/ her name in it.
We have another busy week coming up. It may be the end of term but we still have work to do. Concert night is Thursday night. Children come to class at 6:15 and I encorage parents to find their seats. We will sit together as a class for the entire performance. You can collect your child from me at the end of the concert from in front of the stage. I will be using a checklist to ensure everyone’s safety on the night.
A reminder to help this week run smoothly..
🐝 Please read, sign and return your personal data if you haven’t already done so…it’s the grey piece of paper that went home last week.
🐝 Please read, sign and return the note regarding Christmas seminars if you’d like your child to take part.
🐝 Please send along a stamped envelope this week.
There is no show and tell scheduled for this week, however due to a group of children being required in the music room at various times during the day on Friday to record our concert item we will have Friday’s week 7 children share on Monday.
We have our last transition visit for kindy children this Friday, again I will do sight words on Thursday and we will not share sharing on fruit on Friday. I’ll send home a reminder during the week regarding lining up at the stripe as the bell goes. This weeks visit will see all kindy children visiting at the same time.
Hopefully I haven’t forgotten anything. Have a happy weekend.
