Changes to Week 4 Routines

Due to our Transport Excursion next Tuesday 4th August, Year 1 students will not be having their normal violin lesson. Instead Mrs Dimitrovska has asked that all students come with their instruments (violins and cellos) on Wednesday 5th August for a full rehearsal before Grandparents Day on Thursday.

Assembly Performance

Just a reminder that tomorrow Year 1 will be performing at the K-6 assembly in the PAC at 11:10am.
Everyone is welcome!
Dear Parents of 1L,
It was great to have a chance to reconnect with those I already know and meet so many new faces over the last two nights at parent/teacher interviews.

As discussed with some of you, I am very keen to have parent help in the classroom this term. The following are times when I could most use a helping pair of hands with our activities.
Tuesday – 8:40 – 9:10am; 1:30 – 20:15pm
Wednesday – 8:40 – 9:10am
Thursday - 9:10 – 9:50am
Friday - 9:50 – 10:30am

If you are interested in helping at any of these times please let me know either via email or communication book and I will be in touch as soon as possible.

Please be aware we are unable to accept your help in the classroom if you have not completed the Parent Helper Workshop.

Koko the Koala and Kev the Kiwi

Our Stage 1 students were very excited today with the introduction of our transport unit. In this
they were introduced to two new friends Koko the Koala and Kev the Kiwi. They are part of the PLC
 travelling buddies project.

They have been globe trotting and arrived today from the Faraday School in London. Over the
next week students in Stage 1 will be conducting a lot of activities that look at the journey these two
have been on and explore where they will be heading next. We were also blessed with a copy of
Charlie and Lola's: We Completely Must go to London.

Thank You Mrs Ramage and her class in London.

Spelling Homework Term 3

You may have noticed that spelling homework has changed this term.

Students will now practice 16 words.  A pre-test of a 'core' list will be performed on a Monday. Words that students spell incorrectly in this pre-test will be the basis of the words they must practise. In order to make up any additional words in order to practise a total of 16 words students will then pick words of their choice from the extension list. Students will then have their own personalised spelling list to practise for the week according to their needs.

Some weeks students will be given time in class to write out their new list and on other occasions this is to be done at home. The yellow booklet outlines the sound focus and correlating spelling words for each week of term 3 and can be kept at home on in your yellow folder.

Homework will still include set Mathletics tasks and home reading.

Term 3 Homework

Homework will commence next week.

As it is Book Week next week our talking and listening topic will be

    Tell us about your favourite book or book character and why

A term list of topics will sent home with the homework on Monday.

1L has had a great start to Term 3. They have settled back into the routine of school with ease and have adapted to having a new teacher with little hesitation.
I am really excited for what the rest of the term will hold.

All smiles for the first week of Term 3.
