Week of December 13th – Happy Holidays!

Dear Families,

We have come to the Winter Break! Well done to all of our students for their hard work and friendships this year. It is wonderful to see them grow in their learning and in their relationships with others.

I have posted to Seesaw a video of just some of our highlights since August. See below:


On Thursday the students celebrated a Festive Party in the lunchroom with their ES buddies. They were treated to music and dancing, as well as a sing a long with Mr Charlie!

Habitat and Animal Show and Tell.

While you are on holiday with your families, please continue to discuss animals and habitats. If you see or find a cool habitat, please do take some photos of these animals and habitats. We would love to share your pictures during Show and Tell in class. Please email any pictures you collect to Ms Jenny.

Below is a great resource for extra reading over the break from National Geographic Kids.


UOI Sharing the Planet and Literacy

This week, we learned more about habitats . We looked for digraphs, silent e words, suffixes and prefixes with Ms. Angela our Literacy Coach.  We are learning so much about spelling through word inquiry.

We also started to learn about writing and organizing information to write an Information Report. We picked an animals we really want to learn more about. We are writing interesting facts about all of the animals we are reading about  in guided reading groups and in our UOI book baskets. We also researched features of our clay animals on the internet and added some labels to our feature sculptures.

Goodbye to Jimmy anf Thomas P!

Finally we are sorry to say goodbye to two classmates this week. Goodbye to Jimmy and to Thomas P. They will be missed by all their friends in 1B and we wish them lots of love and luck in their next big adventure! Safe travels onward and please stay in touch!

Thank you also to Kellie – Jimmy’s mum for being our mystery reader this week!
