Update - Week 7 - Term 1

Many thanks to the parents who attended the Nurse Information session and morning tea in week five. It was a good opportunity for parents to begin to develop new friendships in our school community.

The children have enjoyed taking part in many activities that involve using their senses.  Over the past two weeks some of the activities included, making scented flowers, musical shakers and using our “big listening ears” for a listening walk.  In the next two weeks we will make slime, make a texture caterpillar and use our sense of taste in cooking activities.

Our garden is slowly coming together. Our marigolds are about to bloom and we have planted tomato plants and snow peas.

From time to time, we need help with fixing small items in our playground. Is there anyone who would be able to help fixing a steering wheel to our log bus? Please see me if you are able to help.

Update - Week 4 - Term 1

Hi Parents,

What a wonderul start to the term we have had.  The children have been busy learning the kindergarten rules and routines aswell as taking part in some fun activities.  Our Talk For Writing story this term is the Enormous Watermelon. Last week we innovated a new story "The Enormous Strawberry". As part of this the children made strawberry smoothies and planted marigolds in the garden. 

Just a reminder about the Nurse information session and Morning Tea on Wednesday the 4th of March from 8:45 to 9:45. Remember the kindergarten year is not only an opportunity for your child to make friends, it's a time for you to make connections and friendships aswell!



This term we will be investigating the theme of Ourselves, this will include learning about our bodies, the five senses, and identifying what makes each person unique.  As part of this, each child will bring home a bag called “All about Me”. Please follow the instructions and send the bag back to school the following day. Bags will be sent out on different days so please don’t worry if your child doesn’t bring home a bag the first day. In addition to this, can you please send in a baby photo of your child. It just needs to be a simple happy snap, we will return it a later date.

In maths we have been learning about same and different, we will be moving onto sorting and numbers later in the term.  We have also begun our “Talk for Writing” programme.  This term our story is “The Enormous Watermelon”.  Ask your child to retell it to you.

The school nurse will hold an information session later this term. I will send out more details when the date is set.

Looking forward to a wonderful year with you and your child,

Kind Regards,

Shelley, Rosa and Breanna
