Term 4 Week 5
It has been such a busy time this last week, trying to fit in the Keeping Ourselves Safe program, training for our athletics day and practicing for the year one Christmas production. I am amazed that even with all the these extras to fit in we are still progressing steadily in our reading, maths and writing.
The children have taken an interest in looking after our environment choosing to collect rubbish around our school at morning tea and lunch.
On Friday the whole school assembly hosted by our own VLC saw another L2 member receiving an ORCA award.
We were also proud to have one of our talented writers read aloud in front of the whole school her independent writing titled "Looking after nature".
We had a Tsunami drill after lunch today (Monday). L2 did really well with following instructions and getting to Edith Hopper Park in an orderly fashion.
We will continue with the Keeping Ourselves Safe program. Sorry there will no library this week. The children can however return and take books out at lunch time. Today we talked about and identified our body parts. We also talked about touching that makes us happy, unhappy and confused and how we can tell people that we don't like it. The children were encouraged to talk to a trusted adult about things that may happen to them or that they are not sure about.
Tuesday will be our last year 1 athletics practice before our Athletics day next Tuesday 21 November 9.30am -12.30pm.
As our part in the Christmas show is to represent America, we will be dressing up as Christmas minions, so we are looking for plain yellow t-shirts (may have a small picture on the front as we will be coving it with a bib), and denim shorts. We are planning on covering their faces with yellow face paint, so please let us know if this is will be a problem for your child.
Wednesday - 7pm - There will be a community meeting in the hall. Meet the new teachers, hear the changes. Find out about the exciting ideas for our school in 2018.
