We have had another great week of learning in 02.
It will be very nice to have a few days rest, the children are starting to get tired.
This is a long post, so I hope you are able to sit back with a cuppa and read it all carefully as there is a lot of information that you will need to know for the coming two weeks.
This week we managed to cram a lot into a short week.
As part of our ongoing work R-7 with our school Maths Co-ordiator Tamra Waye, we have begun developing a series of specialised Maths activities for reception children to participate in. Tamra worked with us this week and will be visiting our class to support this work over the next two weeks.
This week, we also worked with our big buddies, we worked in our animal groups with 01 children, the children enjoyed having Mrs Booth work with them on Tuesday morning and Thursday afternoon. We said goodbye and farewel to one of our class mates who is lucky enough to be travelling around Australia for the rest of the year. We all wish him and his family safe travels and are awaiting our first postcard or letter. We also went to the Library, computer room and specialists teachers.
Wow, what a week!
Now for my list of request….
😊 Request number 1.
Whilst enjoying yourselves at home this Easter, it would be great if you and your child could have look around, in the bottom of toy boxes and other hidy holes for small unwanted toys for Enterprise Day. Our donation tubs have a few things in them but nowhere near enough.
As we have mentioned previously, we do not want people to go out and buy items for the our Lucky Dip stall. Our prizes will be sold for 20 and 50 cents. Basically, we are looking for bits and pieces that your kids don’t want anymore. For example, the free toys that come with a happy meal, unwanted story books, etc. The more donations we have, the more money we will be able to collect.
😊 Request number 2.
Hopefully, most if not all parents will be able to pop along on Enterprise day and enjoy it with their children. Bring your toddlers, grandparents and anyone else who is available for a fun day. It would be helpful if parents could let me know whether or not you can make it on the day, you can send me an email to let me know. If you are unavailable, your child will team up with another family.
😊 Request number 3.
Enterprise Day money.
As part of our learning for Enterprise Day we will be looking at the various coins that we use in Australia. You can help your child with his/her learning by sending along the following by Wednesday of this coming week.
Every child will need a named snap lock bag , containing one of each of the following Australian coins. Over the week we will be handling money, looking closely at each coin, talking about its value, describing coins, and talking about looking after money in readiness for Enterprise Day. The coins will stay in the classroom in my care and will be returned at the end of term.
😊 Request number4.
What do you do with your empty cereal boxes, biscuit boxes, tissue boxes, old cards, magazines, bottle tops? I’m happy to take that stuff off your hands.
We would love it if you could stick those items into a bag and bring them to school. We need your recycling for making and construction activities. Not just once, we’d love if you could keep sending stuff along all year.
😊 Hope you enjoy the long weekend. 😊
