Book Week Dressups

Posted on

Hi Families when talking with the class yesterday many told me that they wanted to dress up so if your child wants to dress up as their favourite book character and bring that book that’s fine.  – they can be dressed up all day – no need to be getting changed.

We will still as a class be FINDING A BOOK IN THE LIBRARY about ANIMALS and making a mask to go with it.

Your child can choose if they want to dress up or just wear a mask for our BOOK WEEK PARADE at our Friday assembly.

Thanks Leanne and Di

There is so much happening this term and it all begins this weekend.   Please make sure you keep checking Skool Bag app with all the details of school events.

First up is The Almond Blossom Parade is on this Sunday. There is a RIO theme and if your child would like to participate, check the details in the school newsletter.

WEEK 2 is Interview week – appointments are available booked through Skool Bag App please note that on Tuesday Mrs Bradley will be taking the class so that I have all day free to meet with families.  If you choose a Tuesday time please meet me in the wet area and come in via the back door – near the Library

Also on Tuesday 2nd our class will be performing with Mrs Grahams class in the Gym for Almond Blossom lunches.  We will be singing Hickory Dickory Dock – with a twist and we are on at 12.20.  Can your child please wear their sports day teeshirt on this day as we are hoping to have the Olympic colours.

Week 3 we will be concentrating on our big zoo/sleepover excursion.    We will send home reminder notes of what to bring next week.  We know there are some ‘nervous nellies’ out there but please, we are encouraging all children to be brave and to give it a go. Be assured if your child is upset, we will ring – we don’t want negative experiences because  this is all about being able to have a new experience in a very safe way.  You never know what you can do if you don’t give it a go!

Our class RESPONSIBILITY WEEK is again in week 5.     We did this last term and it was a great success with students showing us that they can be very independent and capable class members!

Week 6  is Book Week.  We have a book fair running all week and Friday that week will be our our Book Week Assembly.   The theme for Book week is ” Reading across Australia ” more information abut dressing up for the book week parade later.

100 Days Smarter

Posted on

 PARTY Friday 8th July

On the last day of term we will be 100 days smarter. Over the last two terms we have been counting down every day and we are so excited that we are  nearly there.  We are going to celebrate with lots of 100 day activities and will be sharing the fun with Mrs Grahams’s class.  The thing we are most excited about is our party.

Please send along a SMALL plate of party food to share and put the plate on the tables in the art room in the morning.  We can heat up a few things but not much. So Boys bring a sweet plate and Girls a savoury plate :)

Your child will still need recess and brain food, their drink bottle but no lunch!

WooHoo we can’t wait.
