Term 4 Week 9 News

Writing – we made cards for our buddies and families. Also we wrote about Santa in Australia in summer and what he should wear.

Spelling – Christmas words.

Maths – Problem solving activities were fun but challenging. We also made a paper chain that measured 1 metre. Many children made it longer during activity or at home.

We have all learnt to sign and sing We wish you a merry Christmas. Hopefully your child will sing it to you over Christmas and teach you the sign language too!

Enjoy the holiday season with your family. Thanks again for the great support throughout 2017. Please pop into room 12 and say hi to me in 2018.

We are now in room 12 for the rest of the week. The children were so helpful and patient today with the moving. They were keen to move things into our new room. They were also able to sit and work quietly whilst boxes were packed and furniture was moved around them. What a delightful group of children! I will miss them all next year.

 As well as moving today we also ;

  • made cards
  • decorated gifts
  • did problem solving in Maths
  • had Japanese
  • caught up with our buddies

I think we will all sleep well tonight. I know I will…….

Sorry for not posting the weeks 7 and 8 News. I had typed it up in word and saved it, ready to post after school, so I could add a comment about our “meet the teacher session”.

I was so tired at 4:30 that I went home forgetting to post it. Will put it on the blog Monday morning.

 

“Meet the teacher” went smoothly. All children seemed to come back very excited.

Reports and a letter about 2018 classes are in their bags tonight.

Enjoy the weekend.

Tonight a coat, blanket/towel is probably more appropriate than water bottle and hat. See you at 6pm in room 13 fully dressed in costume. Then we’ll see you after the concert at the back of the stage to sign out your child. 🙂 We are very excited!!

Apologies for dirty shirts

We had a fantastic afternoon making clay pots for the start of our Celebrations topic. We were learning about the Diwali festival of light. PP was able to share lots about how her family celebrate this festival.

Apologies for the clay on some shirts. Soak in water, then wash. It should come out easily 🙂 Our pots will come home, once dried out for you to add a tealight candle and use to celebrate Diwali, Christmas or any other  celebration.

Again we have had some interesting sharing of celebrations and family traditions. Thanks for supporting your child to successfully prepare and share their oral presentations.

  • Tonight is our last night for a reader. They will be collected tomorrow. Please let me know if you can come in next week to help sort and count them all 🙂
  • The last list of sight words has been written in diaries today to practice learning to spell over the holidays.
  • Concert night we will meet in room 13 at 6:oopm and concert starts at 6:30.  After the concert you need to meet us at the back of the stage and have your child signed out by  me. Also we cannot dismiss children early as this is very disruptive during the performance. If it is warm on the night you could send along a water bottle for your child. After few rugs or tarpaulins would be helpful too.
