Dear Room Two Families,
I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday and I look forward to seeing all the students back on Wednesday the 27th of April. This will also be the first day of our swimming lessons so please ensure that you have checked our blog post regarding what to bring for this.
This term in Room Two we are lucky to have Ashleigh Axford in our class. Ashleigh is completing her final practicum of her Early Childhood teaching degree and it will be great to have her in our class. Ashleigh and I will be sharing the teaching load throughout the term and I will be mentoring and guiding her through this process. The students will benefit greatly from having an extra pair of hands in our classroom at all times. Please help us to welcome her into our room.
Also, on Wednesday, you will find a RSVP list for our Mothers Day morning on the class whiteboard. If you could please indicate if you are able to attend or not, it would be greatly appreciated. I understand there are circumstances that do not allow this flexibility so I will ensure that myself, Deb or Ashleigh are free to work with students during activities in this case.
The Mothers Day morning, as mentioned previously will be on Friday the 12th of May in Room 2. It will run from 8:45 until approximately 9:30. Following the Mother’s Day activities, you are welcome to attend an information session on our home reading program beginning at 9:45 (in the undercover area) run by our Early Childhood Deputy, Jaylene Fritchley. Our home reading program will be commencing in Week 4 and this gives you the opportunity to ask questions and have a run through on how best to support your child. To complement this session I will also be providing you with a link to an iTunes U course (accessible only via apple products) that goes through our whole school reading program with examples for each night, which you may find useful.
I look forward to another great term with your children.
