Newsletter #6

October 13th Edition of
The K/1 Class News


Happy Friday Everyone!
We have had another eventful week.

Monday was Thanksgiving so the school was closed.

On Tuesday we played a rhyming game, created spider web art and hunted for spider webs in nature. We also continued learning about story sequence in our oral language learning groups that afternoon.

Wednesday we learned about fire safety and had our first fire drill. Everyone acted very responsibly. We also worked with numbers and patterns in math, went on a lion hunt in P.E. and spent time with our special tress in the forest.

On Thursday we wrote about our Halloween experiences as part of a School Wide Write, practiced our balancing skills in the gym, went to our Whole School Meeting and had Music class. Later, we went up to our big buddy class (gr. 3-4) and they helped us make spider booklets.

Friday was a school day and PJ day! The kids always enjoy coming to school in their cozy jammies. We had a fun day creating art, playing a math game, going to the library and playing in the gym.  

On Wednesday, October 18th, we are going on to Bon Acres farm and the pumpkin patch. We will be leaving the school at 12:45pm and taking the school bus to and from the farm. Each child will get to pick out a pumpkin to bring home! We will return to the school at the end of the day (2:45pm). If your child is catching the bus home that day we may need to keep the pumpkin at school to be picked up at a later time if they can't carry it. Please hand in the $8/permission slip by Tuesday at the latest.

Next week we will be welcoming Klare Yakabuski, a student teacher from Vancouver Island University, in to the class. She will be helping teach in our class for November and part of December as she completes her final practicum. 

Here are the important dates again that are coming up. 
October 18- Field trip to the pumpkin patch.
October 19- PAC movie night
October 24- Picture day

Have a nice weekend.
