Thumbs up to those if you who have already brought in donations for our Christmas Shoeboxes. Please remember that we require $2.50 per child for the postage of these boxes. A note went home last week regarding what type of item we would like your child to donate. The girls are purchasing gifts for girls and the boys purchasing for boys. These gifts will bring a great smile to the children who receive them at Christmas time. Thank you all for your generosity!
Please remember to ensure that your children have their homework folders at school daily. We exchange readers in a Monday and Wednesday and require the children to have their homework folders at school to do this.
The reading log is also an important record that allows us to sight which texts have already been read by your child. Please ensure that you continue fill out this log each time your child completes a text.
Please continue to allocate some homework time towards practising sight words. As your child moves through each list, you will notice the words become progressively more difficult. Focusing on mastering 5 words at a time can be a great way to help your child progress through each list of words. It is great to see how eager many of the children are to be regularly tested on their sight words!
Jumps and Throws - Faction Uniforms
The Year Ones will be required to wear their sports uniforms (faction shirts) on the following two Tuesdays (5th September and 12th September). This is because the children will be doing their jumps and throws on these days. Sports uniform will also continue as normal on a Thursday and Friday. We will update you next week on the timetable for jumps and throws, should you wish to come along and watch.
Our next Think Mentals units (units 12 and 13) are due next Friday 8th September.
Happy Father's Day to all of the Year One Dads! We hope you enjoy tasting your presents (please use your present by the 8th September).
