Was so great to see all the students dressed in red today to support the Daniel Morcombe Foundation. Thank you for the donations! Room 1 and 2 went for a walk to the beach after recess today to enjoy the sunshine and have a walk and play. How lucky are we to have access to a beach right across the road!?
After reading Alexander's Outing by Pamela Allen last week, students created their very own Alexander story about Alexander coming to Port Kembla Public School. In the story by Pamela Allen, Alexander lived with his mother and his brothers and sisters. One day they went for a walk from their duck pond to Hyde Park in Sydney. They walked past various places on the way to the park. Alexander did not listen to his mother and stay close and he fell down a deep hole. Everyone walking past saved Alexander by pouring water down the hole and making Alexander float to the top. Students recreated the story by saying what Alexander walked past while visiting the school.

Room 1 have been reading Potato People by Pamela Allen this week, which is part of our author study on Pamela Allen. This afternoon students made their very own potato people during art.
Wow, our first week back has gone quickly! It is hard to believe it is term 4 already and all of the students in Room 1 will soon no longer be in kindergarten. We have had a busy start to term 4 and following is a look at our day today.
Today in room 1 we had a special visit from Jack and Harry's new puppies. They were a big hit and so cute!
Room 1 have been lucky enough to have a student teacher join our class and will be with us until the end of week 3. Please say hello and make her feel welcome as you see her.
Today students had fun in science investigating whether objects would float or sink when placed in a tub of water. Students are currently learning about floating and sinking during science and will continue to explore these concepts over coming weeks.
Our teacher is Mrs Easton. We are a Kindergarten class.
