I can’t believe it is July already! Where has this year gone, it’s going by so fast and we are having so much fun and learning new things.
We have a new class friend who is going to the children’s house each week, where the children can show Pooh Bear their house, meet their friends and family and also participate in family activities. Each child will get a turn and it would be greatly appreciated if families could write about Pooh Bear’s stay at your house.
On the 10th of July we had a Teddy Bears Picnic. This was a great day and the children had a great time having a picnic with their teddy bears and showing their teddy’s to their friends.
We have also been learning about Naidoc week where the children have been learning about the Aboriginal culture, doing artworks eg, handprints on the Aboriginal Flag, dot paintings, making Didgeridoo’s, drawing boomerangs or themselves with boomerangs and making rainbow snakes. The children also watched some you tube videos of Aboriginal Dreamtime Stories and Dancing. We have also been dancing to Aboriginal music and acting like kangaroos, emus and koalas. We have also looked at boomerangs and threw them, and had a look at Miss Sarah’s didgeridoo.
Early on in the month we also had a visit from the dentist. We are very smart and we know that we have to brush our teeth twice a day, just ask the children and they will tell you.
The school readiness children have been doing a fantastic job of exploring their writing skills and writing letters, words, numbers. We have also been doing a fantastic job of exploring our colours, numbers, shapes and naming them and counting.
We have also been learning about nature and the children are doing a fantastic job of developing a sense of respect for nature and the world around them.
Just a few reminders- can all children please bring a hat to school if they haven’t already, spare winter clothes, a flat and fitted sheet if you don’t send one already AND PLEASE LABEL ALL OF YOUR CHILDREN’S BELONGINGS CLEARLY. If any parents have questions please do not hesitate to speak to me.
