Week 5

Today we welcomed Sophia to our class. It is great to have you here Sophia :)

This week we will be working on recognising some high frequency words in our books and using our alphabet knowledge to look at the initial sounds in words. There is a small plastic bag of words in your child's book bag. This is the first set of words (Magenta) to learn to recognise. I will assess the children regularly and as they progress with their reading and learn each set of words a new one will come home.

Mrs Brough has given us a class set of skipping ropes to use - Thank you Mrs Brough! We are practicing our skipping for fitness each day. It is great for developing coordination will even help us with our writing! 

We are investigating what a community is and how we behave and treat others in a community with a focus on our school values ORCA:


Swimming on Tuesday and Wednesday
Gala mufti day on Friday - Boys bring savoury treat items and girls bring sweet treat items.
Bike track official opening 2.30pm Wednesday. Bring your bike, helmet and shoes if you would like to ride a lap with the school after the opening.
