FOUR more days until our class assembly! We have been practising our parts at school, singing our hearts out and working out where we need to be on the stage. How are costumes coming along? From what I’ve been hearing, I think most people have been able to borrow or construct a simple pirate costume. Thanks Lauren Heitman for bringing in a textbook example of a pair of parrot wings, love your work! If you have not yet put your child’s parrot wings together we do have plenty of coloured card in the classroom that you are welcome to take home today. Our beaks are ready made at school and will be laid out on the morning for the children to wear. We also have eye patches for the pirates if you don’t already have one. Please bring your children to school on time in costume and ensure that they have their sports uniform, socks and shoes in their bag to change into later. We will head across to the hall as soon as the bell rings. I really appreciate all the help and support you have been giving with assembly costumes and reading parts. The children are very excited to perform for you all!
A reminder that the children are asked to complete Units 6 and 7 by the end of this week in their Think Mentals books. Please remind the children to place their books in the green basket this Friday morning. Thank you.
Sight words are still a part of regular homework routine this term. At times we also use the children’s personal sight words in class for various activities, so please remember to have them in your child’s homework folders each day.
Readers are still being exchanged on a Monday and Wednesday. The children and given two nights with the same reader to help build confidence and encourage familiarity with the text.
Have a great week and stay tuned for our next blog post on Mission Markets!
