Welcome Back - Spring Term 1
We hope that you enjoyed a wonderful winter break and look forward
to another action packed term of learning and fun!
Home-learning and Daily Reading
Home-learning tasks are sent home on Fridays. These include spelling practice, literacy and numeracy activities which are linked to the content covered at school that week.
We collect books weekly and reward children who have completed learning tasks.
We also encourage your child to read daily for at least 15 minutes and read through the High Frequency Words list your child is working on.
Please sign your child's reading record book when you have read with your child.
When snow and ice melts, it turns into water.
That means, on a warm winter's day your snowman would melt and disappear.
HINT: What other materials could you use to make a snowman that
wouldn't melt when the temperatures outside changed?
On Christmas Eve just before dinner we cut the apple.
If the apple is healthy and we can see a star has formed with seeds -
the year ahead will be good!
But if the apple is sick or rotten (or if there is a worm inside) -
the year will not be good.
Thank you Maria and family for sending in your special Christmas tradition to share with us!
We look forward to a fantastic year ahead in 2018.
Barnaby Bear's Adventures
Each week, Barnaby will choose a child to go home with for the weekend. Barnaby loves to go on adventures and loves learning about... GEOGRAPHY. If you go to the park or beach, church or a friend's house - take Barnaby with you - he likes to explore new places! Barnaby Bear has his very own scrapbook so that your child can write about your awesome adventures together. It would be great if you could take some photos or even draw some pictures of places you've visited.
We can't wait to hear all about your time with Barnaby Bear!
Each week at our Stand Up A Good One assembly, our teachers recognise our efforts. Congratulations to our Nightingale SAUGO Award recipients for Spring 1:
