What’s Happening in Term 2, 2019?
We have a very busy term ahead with a strong focus on our reading and writing skills. We have introduced parts of the VCOP and Big Write writing program to the Prep students, starting with interesting vocabulary which we call WOW WORDS! It has been so exciting to see the students starting to use WOW WORDS in their writing, and looking for and identifying WOW WORDS in our picture story books.
The Melbourne Zoo excursion was a fabulous introduction into our Science unit, we had an amazing day, and the students loved looking at all of the animals especially the tigers!
We will learn all about their habitats and what they need to survive. We will look at the different features animals have, why they live in certain areas and what makes them different from each other.
Thank-you to all of the parents who have Class Dojo, this is a great communication tool and a lovely way to share photos, see what your child has been doing and of course pass on a message if there is something the teacher needs to know. Also remember to check Flexibuzz on a regular basis, all school events and any other important information can always be found here. You can also use Flexibuzz to tell us if your child is absent from school and why.
We really appreciate the classroom helpers we have in the rooms to hear the children read, they love having you involved and it certainly helps us too!
Lastly, always pop in and see us if you have any questions or concerns.
