Kindy Kangaroo Mystery Reader Week 7

This week our Mystery Reader bought along a book by a favourite Australian author Mem Fox called 'This & That'.
We had great fun looking at the pictures and wondering what  the story for each might be. Thanks for sharing this imaginative book with us.

Just a friendly reminder that if there has been an incident at school involving your child the best course of action is to speak to the staff directly. Thanks.

This week's sound is 'd' as in dog. We hope you can find some interesting items around the home for our sound table.

News Topic For This Week
Bring in something from home and describe what it is made of (e.g wood, plastic, material, metal, no glass thanks)
Some items may be made from two or three different materials. Can you talk about them all?

Kindy Kangaroo Mystery Reader Week 6

This week our Mystery reader shared a really fun book with us 'Thelma the Unicorn' by Aaron Blabey. It was a great to learn to be happy with who we are.
Thanks for coming to read this special story to us.

Term 1 Week 7 Reminders

News Topics Commence This Week
Please check your child's yellow bag for a blue note with the News Topics and hints for presentation.
Each child has been allocated a News Day.
It is preferable that the child's news is presented on their allocated day as we find it difficult to make up the extra time on other days. We can make allowances if the child has been sick.

This week's topic is 'I can....'. We look forward to hearing their ideas.

Sound Of The Week
The sound for this week is 'f' as in fish. Please find items around the house for our sound table.
(frog, family photo, fork, friends, five cent coin, fettuccine pasta)

Toys and Games for Recess and Lunch
The children can bring in a small toy, colouring in book, pencil case, card game etc if they'd prefer to play in the quieter area, on the mats near our classroom. The field is usually open for running around and using equipment as well. 
On Wednesdays the children may go to the library as an alternative.

Mufti Day on Tuesday 14
Please refer to the note on the parent portal. We would like to encourage everyone to participate in this worthy cause.
We will collect the gold coins at the beginning of the day.
Thank you.

Mystery Reader Week 6 Platypus Class

We had an enjoyable afternoon with our Mystery Reader on Friday.
She read A Squash and a Squeeze by Julia Donaldson. It was about a little old lady who thought her house was too small but with some advice from a wise man and some farmyard animals she changed her mind.
A valuable lesson for all of us to be happy and content with what we have already.
Enjoy the photos.
