Jolly Grammar – This week we have worked with i_e sound and verbs. We had fun taking photos and videos of our friends doing actions for our verbs lesson.

Maths – We are exploring shapes until the end of term. We went on a shape walk to find 2D shapes. We have also been talking about the names and properties of these shapes using the language of shapes corners, edges, sides, straight, curved etc.

Writing – We wrote a piece of persuasive text and read some of them to Mr Hunt. We were trying to convince Mr Hunt to let us have more Nature Pay. We came up with lots of reasons why we should do more Nature like…….. it’s fun, time in the fresh air, oxygen, learn about nature, respect school property, climb trees, build cubbies, make friends with reception children, cooperate, care for nature…… and many more!

Next week will be busy with Nature Play, Special Person’s Day, sharing and our usual learning program.

SPD – We have all the t shirts at school. They will be sent home Wednesday afternoon. Please make sure that your child wears long navy pants Tuesday and Wednesday. Thanks in anticipation 🙂

Excursion payment is due next week. Thanks to those who have already paid.

Sharing – Something your child likes to do with a grandparent.

Thanks to Danielle, Sarah and Shatty for sorting and glueing our art work into our Wow books. Also big thanks to Nat and Megan for sticking our music notes onto our t shirts. All done!!

T shirts that were ordered through the school, arrived today! I won’t send them home first as we need to put the musical notes on them. I have named them all. You will get them next Wednesday after our performance.

There are still some children who haven’t sent their child’s t shirt to school. We need them all tomorrow. Thanks in anticipation.

Tuesday 27th June 12 noon is the dress rehearsal (parents welcome to attend)

Wednesday 28th June  12 noon for our two special guests… followed by a brief visit to the classroom and an opportunity to buy a book in the library if they want to.

Please be seated by 12 noon.

Tomorrow we will be writing an invitation for your child’s two invited guests for next Wednesday’s performance. It would be a big help if you could write the name of the one/two guests into your child’s diary tonight. It will make it easier for your child to be able to copy this from their diary.

Thanks in anticipation 🙂

Jolly Grammar – We have worked with vowels, alphabetical order and a_e long vowel sound.
Maths – We finished off our topic on linear measurement in week 6. We have been discussing the passing of time. We talked about what we could do in the past as a baby, what we can do now and what we could do in the future that we can’t do now………
Writing – We have planned a narrative with an animal as the main character. Then we wrote up our ideas from the plan into a story. We tried to describe our setting using some descriptive language.

School newsletter this week highlights room 13!! MR gets a spot in Art’s Corner too. Congratulations!!
No sharing for week 8.
Parent helpers– We would love some parents to come in one morning and glue some of our special artwork into our WOW books for us.
New student – We welcome Nazalia and her family into room 13. She settled in beautifully on Friday.

Godwit collage today…

We have loved reading Circle by Jeannie Baker. The godwit is the migrating bird  upon which the story Circle is based. Today we used a technique called fringing to make our godwits. They are displayed in the corridor outside room 13. We worked so hard to get the body shape correct and then add the feathered detail.

Jeannie Baker’s talk.

I went to listen to Jeannie Baker speak tonight. Wow!! It’s so inspiring to hear someone speak about their work with such passion. I also got to view room 13’s fabulous collage books in the foyer of Edwardstown Baptist church. We were told tonight that the children’s book will be on display at the Mitcham and Blackwood libraries, as well as the Mitcham Council Chambers.
