Thank you all for your generous donations with the shoe boxes. They are being picked up this Friday and will be sent off to reach their destination by Christmas. The children had fun putting their items together and boxing their gifts up during our Religion lesson last week.
This Friday units 14 and 15 are due to be completed in the Think Mentals book. During the week we reviewed the concept of 'near doubles', an important mental calculation strategy that is addressed in the Think Mentals text.
Spelling/Sight Word Revision
Below is the link to the spelling sounds covered in our differentiated spelling groups this term:
Although there is no homework allocated for holidays, it would be a great idea to revise the sounds that your child had been learning in their spelling group across the term. Just ask your child what colour group they are in! The holidays are also a fantastic time to revise sight words, I will make sure that all homework folders go home over the holidays so that your child has their sight words at home.
Our Calendar Art is in a display file by the classroom door. If you would like to purchase your child's artwork orders need to be in by Friday 13th October (week 1 of next term).
In week 2 next term we will have Miss Amy Bolton completing her four week teaching prac in our classroom. The Year Ones have already had a visit from Miss Bolton this week. Stay tuned for more information about Miss Bolton on our upcoming blog posts.
Colouring In Competition
Last week, some colouring in forms went home for the South West Wellness Expo. If your child wishes to enter their colouring into the competition, their entry must be at school by this Friday (tomorrow).
The news roster for Term 4 went home today and our Parent Help Roster is up on the pin up board outside the classroom. Due to Miss Bolton being here from weeks 2-5 we are not requesting parent help until week 6 of next term.
There has been a reported case of the chicken pox in Year One. As there has only been one case reported, we can not send out an official letter to parents just yet. Please visit your local GP if you have any concerns over the holidays.
Year 1R and 1P are coming together to present a Prayer Assembly on Friday 20th October (week 2). There will be no costumes required for this assembly and we will send allocated reading parts home early next term.
Thank you all for another wonderful term in Year One! I hope you enjoy a lovely holiday making the most of the time you have with your families. Bring on the Spring sunshine and warm weather again!
