Well done to all the children for completing the cross country run on Thursday. Our training certainly paid off with everyone crossing the finish line with a big smile on their face. The ice block at the end was definitely well deserved.
Our trip to Motat is fast approaching. Please get your forms in asap.
Our major focus for the rest of the term is going to be on our writing. We are learning to tune into our senses in order to include lots of details in our narratives. We are challenging ourselves to write longer stories each day.
To assist us to write quickly we are learning to spell the words on the essential spelling lists. These are words we need to write often so it helps to be able to spell them automatically. We will have a variety of activities in class to practice these but if you would like to start learning them at home please see me for a list.
Do you have a colourful wig at home? We will need lots of colourful wigs as part of our costumes for our item at the cultural evening. Please hunt them out and bring them in if you have them. (no need to buy anything special - we will get creative if need be)
On Wednesday this week we will be holding two meetings for parents to present the results of the recent school organisation survey.
Meetings will be at 1.45pm and 7.00pm
