Thank you so much for attending the Celebration of Learning this week. The students were incredibly excited to share their learning with you and clearly enjoyed having you visit their classroom. They did a wonderful job of taking about their musical instruments, sharing their teaching books about caring for the planet, showing you their nature photography and guiding you around the other work they had on display in the classroom. We hope you enjoyed the event as much as we did.
We are coming to the end of our Sharing the Planet unit and so have been busy this week finishing off various tasks. During writing sessions the students have worked on publishing a favourite teaching book to keep in their Writing Progress Folders. Next week I will be sending home the other teaching books that the children have been working on in recent weeks. When you find some spare time over the vacation, please encourage your child to share these books with you.
This week in Math we have been reviewing the 2D shapes and 3D solids we have been learning about. We have also continued our work on the numbers 11 to 20. The students practised using mathematical vocabulary such as more than/less than and greater than/smaller than to compare teen numbers.
During unit time the students have enjoyed nature scavenger hunts around the school and more time in class enjoying junk modelling. They also made a representation of their nature photograph using charcoal.
Next Wednesday (13th December) at 2:10 the Year 1 students will be performing at the Primary School assembly. The plan is for them to get the assembly off to a great start by marching in while playing the instruments they made in Music class. You are very welcome to attend this event.
Please enjoy the two slide shows of photos from this week!
