Dear Parents,

A reminder that tomorrow is pyjama day! Your child should come to school in their pyjamas and slippers. They may bring a stuffed animal to cuddle if they wish. Please be sure they have regular shoes for outside play. Some children are not comfortable wearing pajamas and that’s ok, they don’t have to.

We will not be going to the cafeteria, but I will give the children a chance to eat in the classroom so be sure to send food for them as they are used to eating at 11:00 and will be hungry.

Today I am sending their poem notebooks and a few books to read over the holiday. Please keep them until we return on Jan 7th. Don’t forget they can also use Razkids and IXL. They can also work on their sight words. The sight word pre-assessments are in their folders.

As a parent, you are welcome to come to the library and check out books for the holiday.

Report cards will be posted on the UAS portal this afternoon. I would be happy to meet with you after the holiday to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.

I wish you all a happy, safe holiday. See you on Sunday, January 7th.

Science experiments!

Today we had so much fun with science. This morning we made rain clouds using shaving foam, water and food coloring. This afternoon we  made some erupting apple volcanoes! We first looked at the materials we needed, then we made our predictions about what we think might happen. After that we carried out the experiment Continue reading →

Dear parents,

My sincere apologies the word list did not go home today. I will send it home tomorrow. Our science experiment took longer than expected so we ran out of time! I will put some photographs up shortly. 🙂

Thanks

Dear parents,

Just wanted to let you know that in the children’s folders today will be a sight word list. We have not officially started learning the sight words yet so this is a PRE assessment, therefore it is not a concern if your children could not read the words as we will be teaching them next term. It is useful for us to see their starting point. I will send you dates nearer the time as to when the follow up test will be.

Also a reminder that we have a Santa visit and pyjama party on Thursday! Children can bring in a teddy and or pillow. We cannot wait!

Thanks!
