Dear Year One Parents
Thank you for your attendance at our Year One Parent Information Session. We hope that you found the information valuable and feel ready for the year. A copy of the slide show from the night has been added to the last post on our blog.
Our first swimming lessons begin tomorrow! Please refer to the swimming timetable that was sent home this week for our lesson times. After an early lunch, Year 1R will be attending a 1:05pm lesson and leaving the pool to return to school at 2:10pm. We should arrive just before home time, so the children will come home in their bathers with their sports shirt on. Please help us out by making sure all items are labelled to avoid items going into lost property! The children may wear thongs during the week, or bring them in their bags to change into before their lesson.
After our week of swimming, we will begin homework in week four. It will start with a bundle of sight words that the children are required to be able to READ and SPELL. A new home reader will go home every 2 days.
Many thanks to Robyn (Elsie’s Mum) and Ainslie (Sonny’s Mum) who have offered to be our class reps this year. A contact information sheet has been left by our reps next to the communication book. Please add your details to the sheet if you would like to be contacted by them about important events, etc.
Have a wonderful remainder of the week!
