Yesterday students in rooms 1 and 2 visited Warrawong High School for an Education Week performance. Students watched students from other local schools perform songs and dances and sang 'the lion sleeps tonight' and danced to 'kangaroo rock'. All students did a wonderful job! It was great to see so many parents watching the performance.
Thanks for a great day room 1! Students had a great time creating their very own art works during our NAIDOC celebrations today. Here they are with their paintings.
Today students in years k-2 had a visit from Vicki from the Responsible Pet Ownership program. Students learnt about how to care for a dog and how to make the home dog friendly. Students learnt about how to approach an unknown dog (and the correct times to go near an unknown dog (I.e when the dog is with its owner) and how to correctly pat a dog. They learnt how to judge if a dog is feeling happy, scared or angry and how to react in these situations. This was a very valuable program for students to be involved in.
They have a great website with fun interactive games and lessons. There is also information about choosing the right pet for your family and caring for dogs. You can also download the interactive game for your smart phone or iPad.
The website is: www.pets.nsw.gov.au
Welcome back to term 3! I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday. Room 1 had a great day today. Home reading has started again and all students have a new reader to take home and read tonight. Please remember to sign the record card so your child can achieve their reading certificates. Students wrote recounts today about what they did during the holidays. A selection of these have been posted below.
During Term 2, Room 1 participated in the schools permaculture garden. The students were lead by the schools garden ambassadors and taught about what is in the garden, how to care for our garden and general garden facts (for example, about which bugs are good for our garden and which ones aren't). The students planted broad bean seeds and we will continue to observe and care for these as they grow. Room 1 will continue to be involved in the garden during Term 3.
Our teacher is Mrs Easton. We are a Kindergarten class.
