Athletic Carnival 2015

Hello Everyone,
What a great day for our Athletics Carnival on Wednesday! 
Kinder and Year 1 had a wonderful time with the novelty events and the races.
A big thank you to the high school students who assisted Mrs Agren in the organisation of the morning activities.
Here are some photos from the day.

Week 7 Reminders

Canteen Lunch Orders and Spending Money
Kindergarten children love getting their lunch orders; however in a few cases, there is so much food ordered that they cannot eat it all and it is thrown out. Sometimes, they are still eating their lunch in the second half of lunchtime and don't get time to play.
Also, we have noticed that some children have a lunch order and then have money to spend at the canteen as well. The children don't seem to understand the concept that they really have had enough food and don't need to buy anymore food at the canteen.
Could we please suggest either a lunch order or spending money on canteen days and not both? Thanks.

Sounds Of The Week
This week our sounds are 'l' as in leg and 'v' as in vase. Please bring in something that starts with those sounds for our sound table.

News Topic
This week our topic is 'In Winter I like to......'
Ideas could include food that is eaten, sporting activities, cosy things to do at home, clothing that is worn, winter holidays etc
Children can bring in photos or props to assist their talk.

No Literacy Groups On Monday
Just a reminder to our parent helpers that we will not be having literacy groups on Monday due to the Athletic Carnival Assembly.

House Colours for Wednesday's Athletic Carnival

House Wristbands

Today students in Kindergarten and Year 1 were given a coloured wristband to represent their House.  This is a special band to wear at sporting events during the year (so keep it in a safe place between events!)

Students are asked to wear their wristband at the Athletics Carnival on Wednesday and wear clothes in their House colour (or sports uniform) so that everyone will know what House they are in and so they can win points for their House.

Blue = Sharks
Green = Eagles
Red = Rams

This week Year 5 and Kindy had a common goal to create an outfit made from newspaper.
There were a lot of creative ideas and variations from super heroes to pirates, princesses and even a mermaid!
