Welcome to all our wonderful families to Year 1 2020!
Well done on surviving the first week back. The children did extremely well and are beginning to adjust to the school routine once again, after a very long holiday break.
We had a great time getting to know one another and enjoyed participating in lots of back to school activities. We also talked about our holiday adventures and worked hard to write and draw about the highlights.
We can’t wait to see what the year will hold for all of us and are excited to dive into our learning! The students particularly showed a keen interest in our science topic for this term – living things. Everyone was keen to share what they already knew about living things and could tell us about many interesting creatures from around the world.
Looking forward to a wonderful year ahead. We can’t wait to share our adventures with you!
Welcome back to 2020!
The grade 2 students have had an awesome start with lots of learning already happening. This term we are investigating life cycles of various living things, and learning about our local indigenous country Yugumbeh. The students will be applying their learning from History and Science into an English Information report.
We’ve been establishing a good reading habit each day and encourage you to continue the love of reading at home. Pictured below is 2K opening up book parcels and exploring which genre of book they like to read. You will also see Grade 2M pictured during their reading time enjoying reading.
Miss McNabb, Mrs Hollenberg and myself look forward to getting to know you throughout the year and encourage you to stay involved in your child’s learning journey.
Visit by Registered Nurse for Free Prep Vision Screening
Good vision is important for a child’s educational, physical and social development. Vision screening is therefore vital in early childhood, particularly for conditions such as ‘lazy eye’, which if not detected early can lead to blindness.
A Registered Nurse will be visiting the school in 2020 to commence vision screening for all Prep Year children. If you wish to have your child participate in this free vision screening program, please complete and sign the consent form sent home with your child and return this to your child’s class teacher as soon as possible. You will be advised in writing of the outcome of your child’s screening.
Please note that if your child has had a vision assessment in the past 12 months it is not necessary for him/her to participate in this screening program. If this is the case, please complete the consent form and indicate that you do not wish for your child to participate, and ensure that you follow the schedule of reviews recommended by your eye health professional.
The consent forms will be getting sent home to prep families (via prep student) on the first day of school. Forms need to be returned by Friday 7th Feb.
