Sports Day Fun!!!
We have finished our first week back and what a week it was. Sports Day was a fabulous way to end the week. Thank you so much to the people who were able to come along and spend some time with us on the day. I know the children really loved having you there. If you have some nice snaps of the day, I’d love to see them.
I know I say it every term but we have a very busy term ahead of us. Hopefully you have seen school photos, the raffle ticket book and the excursion note by now. If you’d like to sell or perhaps even purchase the raffle tickets yourself, please return money and stubs to the class in a labeled envelope as soon as possible. If you do not want to sell tickets please return the unsold book to me with the cut off section of the note as soon as possible.
We are really excited about our excursion to Sheperds Hill Reserve in a few weeks time. It will be lots of fun and I’m sure that we will have some great experiences and of course learn lots on the day.
As you would’ve noticed Miss Choo, our student teacher has begun her block of teaching in our class. She will be with us for the next four weeks. Miss Choo will be working with small groups from time to time and will take on some of the teaching component over the coming weeks.
This term we will be trying something different with our show and tell roster. We will be having sharing on alternate weeks only. As we started sharing in week 1 we will continue the pattern, that means there will be sharing in week 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9. If you have any questions about this please feel free to ask me.
This term we will be organising our item for the end of year school concert. We will be performing with the children in Room 01. More information to come.
We have a school closure day on Monday 7th of November. This means that staff will be on site but students do not come to school on this day.
As this is the final term for the year the teachers in the Doolette building will be hosting the Orientation visits for the children who are currently at Kindy and will be attending school next year. These visits have been scheduled for Friday of weeks 4, 6, and 8. You may’ve noticed that these visits are beginning earlier than they did last year and that they also have a weeks break between them. I will of course notify you of further details and what it means for your child and my exisiting class as visits approach.
Just a reminder that there have been a few timetable changes this term, PE is now on Wednesday along with Japanese and Music is on Thursday. Library day remains on Thursday. Now that the children have been Library Legends, they are already working hard to become Legends once again, by already earning a green sticker this term showing that they respect others, the resources and the space when working in the Library.
I’m looking forward to another fun term of learning with children and families.
