Farewell and Welcome!Last Friday we said farewell Mrs Anne Coltrinari who completed 15 days of work experience towards her Education Assistant training in our Year One Classroom. Mrs Coltrinari was an asset to our class and we thank her for the extra assistance that she provided to both the children and myself in her time with us. We wish her every success in her future studies and role as an Education Assistant.
This week we welcome Mrs Gemma Hanmer, who will be completing her Third Year Teaching Prac in our Year One Classroom. Gemma will be with us for 6 weeks of Term 4 and we look forward to welcoming another special teacher into our class.
Castles ProjectThis term in Visual Arts and Technology we have been exploring the characteristics and features of castles. We already know that castles have been made popular by some fairy tales and that they are an important part of history, particularly in Europe.
This website contains some fun facts about castles that you can read with your child at home:
On Friday of Week 5, we will be using recycled materials such as cardboard boxes, netting, plastic lids and any other materials that the children can think of, to construct our own castles. Next week I will update our blog with a list of materials that the children and I have brainstormed together. From there, we will need to get collecting at home! If each child could bring their materials to school in a bag labelled with their name on it by Friday 9th November (Week 5) that would be fantastic! We will also prepare some materials which we already have at school that the children can access on the day. If you can help on this day from 10am-11am with our castle construction, please contact me by email, or let me know in the classroom.
Have a lovely week!
