Welcome to 2D!

Dear Parents,

What a fabulous week. I have so much enjoyed getting to know your children. We have been exploring and inquiring into our learning space and becoming a connected community.

Important for Monday as this is helping us to start our first unit of inquiry.

Paper Bag Activity for this weekend. Check your child’s  bag after school on Friday. All instructions are included on the bag. Please place objects that your child wishes to share that tell us about themselves in the bag and return to school by Monday, 19th of August.

Some helpful information to get the year started.

  • Lunchtime – remember to send ID card with money credited to your child’s account or send a home packed lunch.
  • Buses. If you child is not going home on the bus you need to contact the transport coordinator and cc me into the email.
  • Hats are required during recess breaks and PE.
  • We have a snack time in the morning at around 10:00am inside the classroom. In the afternoon there is no snack time provided in class but children may eat during recess if needed.
  • A class schedule was sent home Wednesday. On it you will find the days and times for specialist lessons. We do not have a library time assigned to us yet, I will let you know as soon as I find out.

Musical Auditions

Aristocats auditions are coming! Here is a brief summary of the story:
When a retired opera singer leaves her inheritance to her cat, Duchess  and three kittens, the woman’s butler drugs the cats and abandons them in the countryside in order to inherit the fortune himself. Lost in unfamiliar territory, Duchess and the kittens meet Thomas O’Malley, an alley cat willing to help them return to their home in Paris. They meet several kooky characters along the way, including two English geese and an alley cat jazz band.
If you would like to try out, please sign up for an audition time, which will take place on the following days during lunch: August 21st, 22nd, 23rd, 26th and 27th. For the audition, you will need to sing a short but dramatic song and act out part of the story. The musical will be performed in December and the rehearsals will take place on Mondays and Fridays after school.
