Week 7 Info

Our Silkworms
Have you seen the action going on in our silkworm tank? Our cocoons have hatched and the silkworms have re-emerged as moths! The Year Ones have been observing the silkworms mating and laying eggs. We have been learning about the lifespan of the moths and how to preserve the eggs for hatching next year. Ask your kids about what they know about these quirky creatures, they are very interesting indeed! Many thanks to Elsie and her family for donating the silkworms to the Year Ones. They have generated lots of inquiry and excitement within our classroom.

Vinnies Christmas Appeal
There is a box in the classroom for donations to the Vinnies Christmas Appeal. Some ideas for donations include: tins, pasta, rice, biscuits, crackers, sauces, jams, condiments, (basically any non-perishable good food, which can be used beyond Christmas). Thank you to those of you who have already contributed some generous donations to those who require our support at this special time of the year, which can be a difficult time for some families.

Think Mentals
The Think Mentals books are due in on Friday 1st December. The children should have completed Unit 23 by the end of next week. This will be the last Maths homework for the year. Thank you for working with your children to complete their Mental Maths homework this year. For those of you who may have some catching up to do, please endeavour to do what you can with your child. The remaining activities in the book may be good revision over the Christmas holidays before the children start Year 2.

Have a wonderful week!

Miss Rundle
