It is hard to believe week 10 is here and it is our final week together. I have been with some of the children for 2 years now so it will be a sad goodbye come Thursday.
This week we have a lot happening with practice for the end of year concert, transition afternoon, class party, end of year concert and of course cleaning!
I have sent pretty much everything home with your child by now bar their pencil cup and stationary items that we still need to use. These will come home on the last day of school.
This Monday is transition afternoon. The children will go off in the afternoon to their Year 2 classroom to meet their teacher. Class lists are usually on display outside the office in the afternoon for you to view.
Tuesday is our class party and End of year concert. There is no need to send lunch in for your child just crunch and sip, recess and a water bottle. I will sort the rest with the money that has been collected. Later on in the afternoon we will have our end of year concert. Children need to be back in our classroom and dressed in their costumes by 5pm. We will then walk down as a class and take our positions on the limestone steps closest to the basketball courts. Your child will need to remain in my care until the end of the concert.
Throughout the week we will be cleaning all furniture and classroom resources. Please make sure your child has their hat as they will be helping with the cleaning of these items.
I would like to invite children to bring in a clearly labelled board game or two from Monday for us to play after our class party and while the cleaning is happening. I will send these home on Thursday afternoon.
I am looking forward to a week full of fun and festive cheer. It has been great seeing the children get so excited about our elf and his cheeky antics which I am sure he will continue right up until the last day of school.
Thank you all for a fantastic year. Your ongoing support and communication has assist me to do my job in positive and rewarding way. To those families who are leaving Aubin Grove I wish you all the best at your new school, I will miss you all and hope if you see me out and about you will stop and say “hello”.
Have a very Merry Christmas and a fun & relaxing holiday with your families.
