This week:  The children enjoyed reading books like Today is Monday and How to Catch a Star, and doing research on the difference between a star and a starfish.  Centers this week have focused on literacy activities like identifying the letters in 3 letter words, rhyming, and beginning sounds.  The children have also been practicing letter formation through fun play dough activities and handwriting books.

During swimming, the children have been learning swimming skills like putting their head underwater, holding onto the side of the pool and kicking, and using a kickboard to swim to the other side.  I’ve been impressed with how some of the children have grown in confidence over our swim session.

The children’s performances have been wonderful! I am so impressed with the practice and expression that the children showed.  Their videos are on YouTube – feel free to share them with your friends and family!

Work coming home:  Your child started coloring their own emergent reader for Today is Monday.  Please enjoy reading it together!

The June calendar came home with your child today. PLEASE read over it carefully as it explains some end of year activities that we are planning.

It explains that we are participating in contributing food/drink items to the fridge next door at Spinneys for the Ramadan season. Your child should bring item/s from the list on Sunday June 3rd. They should only bring what they can carry themselves. WE MUST RECEIVE THE PERMISSION SLIP FOR THEM TO WALK OVER WITH THE CLASS.
