A week of skip counting, personal writing and construction!

The days seem to whizz by and we are at another Friday! Looking back at the photos from the week is so much fun and it would be great to fit them all in but there is not enough space! We congratulated our Resilience  and Jogging Club Award winners on Tuesday at Assembly.

We are no longer doing our Read, Write and Draw for Morning Reading, but now we write a personal connection to our books! Here are our first attempts!

Swimming was again a real hit, although we very much missed those children who were absent and hope that they are feeling better soon. Craftpower was wonderful, with thanks to our Parent Helpers again. Anatoli was such a funny man and the children learnt to hammer nails, sand and make their own car.

Somehow we also managed to fit in some skip counting. We created our own number snakes and practised skip counting by twos outside on a sunny day!



Words, Wacky Science and Making Waves this Week!

Our Prep C children have had some amazing opportunities this week to experience some different types of school activities. We have completing the first part of our Community unit of work and had some fun linking this to Science Night, with a Prep A Police Station, Prep B Hospital and Prep C Construction site! A big thank you to Parkdale Secondary College for donating all the wood off-cuts and nails, and to our local Kinders who lent us their hammers! There was a pretty dodgy looking foreman on site on the night though!!!!

The children wrote some terrific personal connections about the book Dear Zoo. They worked hard to write more than just one idea and to now rest their letters on a line.

And then there was swimming on Thursday! The children were just amazing, on the bus, in the pool and in the change rooms! We had talked a lot about our resilience and organisation and I was very proud of them! Thank you to our helper parents and those who came to watch as well!

It’s already Week 3!

This week we have had our community walk as the major focus. The letters that we have written to a family member have been posted and we have had alot of fun writing other letters to friends at school. Please feel free to add a letter to anyone in our post box outside the classroom. We will try to remember to have our postie deliver them each day!

Here is a video about our Community Walk. A huge thank you to our families for ensuring that the children were organised and for our parent helpers who came with us! We couldn’t do this without you. Watch out for a roster for our up-coming swimming program to be added to the noticeboard soon.
