Week Two Fun


Posted by mrsmoncrieff | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on October 18, 2019

Our Backyard unit has continued to be a big hit this week with children waiting patiently to be able to play in the “camping” area. Doing morning reading in a tent has been a highlight! We have further developed our knowledge of all things “minibeast” this week, looking closely at non-fiction books and how they give us information. We are almost ready to send home our Term 4 home task – which asks the children to research a chosen minibeast and produce a page for our class book. We met “Digger Dog” who is a friend making it fun to “dig” for information in the books the children read. Have a look at our Book Look display outside the classroom.

Our silkworms have been eating tons of mulberry leaves and growing substantially. The children have been learning about their life cycle this week. We even learnt the trick of adding a pencil into a photo to give a size comparison.

Congratulations to Stelly for some fab spelling and for Tori who has been first to bring an information book to school to share with us. For Show and Tell over the next 2 weeks we ask that children try to find an information book at home that they can bring to talk about. Alternatively, they could bring something from nature, or from their backyards.

There has also been a buzz of activity about the childrens’ quest for their Line Licence. Each week everyone works at their own pace to improve their handwriting on dotted thirds paper in readiness for Year 1. Congratulations to Jessica who has been awarded her licence this week. Here is our success criteria!
