Welcome to week 7.
We had a fantastic time at Peninsula Farm yesterday learning all about the Hardy family and how life was back in the past. The children were all well behaved and actively took part in all of the activities that were offered to us on the day. As soon as the blog will allow me to, I will post some photos of our day so keep your eyes peeled. I would like to say a very big thank you to Mel, Jenny, Cally and Linda who also came along and looked after their small group of children. I have to say I was super proud to say I was the class teacher and from Aubin Grove Primary School yesterday. It was an absolute please taking the class out and watching them all take part with enthusiasm and following the instructions that were given.
This week is a short week due to the public holiday on Monday. All homework was due in yesterday, Thursday. If you haven’t can you please return all homework first thing Tuesday morning if you would like your child to have a new reading book and spelling list.
We start off the week with Art and library first up so please remember to send in library bags.
