Newsletter #8

October 26th Edition of
The K/1 Class News

What a beautiful week! We all enjoyed the sunny days and warm weather.

On Monday we continued to learn about the 'a team' which includes the letters a, b, c, d, e, f, and g. We visited the library and chose a new book. We also began the 'Friends' program. It is a program designed to teach friendship skills and resilience to children aged 4 to 7. We also drew family portraits and shared some of our favourite things to do, eat, and play.

On Tuesday we practiced balancing beanbags in the gym, had our Oral Language groups and welcomed Quentin Harris back to the class. Quentin taught the kids a traditional First Nations game, very fun! Later in the afternoon we created patterns in nature.

Wednesday the kids practiced their math in a number race game and we wrapped up our spider unit by creating a class book about why we like spiders.

Thursday was pizza day! The class all enjoyed the hot lunch. We also went to our Whole School Meeting where Franky, Emma, Jude and Roscoe read their pages from the spider book to the school. Later our big buddies came down to read counting books they had made to the class and we explored the swamp. The kids were thrilled to see that the swamp is still dry and they could run around the clearing.

We will be having a Hallowe’en Party next Tuesday afternoon starting at 1:30pm and the children are encouraged to come to school in their costume (please leave weapon parts at home). If you would like to send along a healthy treat to share with the class we will have a shared snack in the afternoon. Feel free to pop in!

November 1st will be PJ day! Come to school in your jammies.
