First of all I would like to thank you, A3 parents and guardians, for making sure your children have slept well, had good breakfasts and calm mornings before last week's PATs. I am particularly proud of everyone in A3 for how diligently they have worked during their tests, embodying our school motto to be the best we can be. There will be one last PAT for both the year threes and fours tomorrow morning.
All of A3 should have brought a reader home, at their approximate level prior to the summer holidays, which they have hopefully shared with you or at least practiced independently. In coming weeks, as we more firmly settle into our routines, our students should be bringing at least two different readers home per week as well as spelling words. All of the class have been issued with Studyladder IDs and passwords which they can access at home to practice their basic facts and spelling. I will send another reprint of these details home as a know a few students have misplaced these.
Last Wednesday afternoon was very exciting with the official opening of our bike track. A3 and A4 followed this up with a combined biking lesson on the Thursday. A big focus our lesson was about properly fitting, and checking the safety of our helmets. I encourage you to ask your children about what they learnt.
Heres A3 & A4s first go at part of our dance.
Thursday out on the track:
Its only five sleeps until Gala Day 2017!!! Our last mufti day will be this Friday 10th. Please come say hello on Saturday- I'll be helping man a game or stall.
We will also continue to extend our knowledge of being cybersmart and using online tools such as google drive and docs.
Students should be remembering to pack both their book-bags and devices everyday this week. Thanks for reading. - Miss Woodcock
