Tissue Boxes

Thank you to everyone for sending in small jars. They will be returned home tomorrow, hopefully with some left over home made butter!

Mrs Devine has asked the students to bring in a tissue box for an upcoming activity. Could you please send in any empty tissue boxes from home.

Many thanks!

Peninsula Farm Excursion

Just a reminder that excursion money will be due Friday 26th May. On the day of the excursion your child will need to ensure that all items are clearly labelled. They will need to be wearing full school uniform with purple Aubin Grove shirt and closed shoes.

They will need the following things:

  • School hat
  • Drink bottle
  • Recess and lunch in two separate, labelled disposable bags

We will need some parent helpers on the day. If you are interested please see the classroom teacher as soon as possible. If we have more than required we will draw names out.

Year One Staff

Excursion – 1st June

Yesterday you will have received a note home about our excursion to Peninsula Farm / Tranby House in Week 6 as a part of our History program. All Year One classes will be visiting and we will be joined by Room 20 and Room 41 on Thursday 1st June. Permission slips and the $13 will need to be returned to the office by Friday 26th May.

If you are available to volunteer as parent help it would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you would like to come.

Feel free to see me if you have any questions.

Small jar request

Could students please bring in a small jar during week 3 for an activity we will be doing during week 4 as part of our History program. They only need to be fairly small e.g. baby food jar size.

Thank you in advance!

Term Two

The students have had a great start back this term. We hit the ground running starting swimming lessons last week, however they have had a positive attitude to their lessons and are having a great time. They have taken the changes to our routines happily and have shown fantastic Aubin Grove behaviour at the pools. We are very proud of them! Swimming will continue this week, with Friday being our last day.

Today I sent homework folders home. There is no reading book this week, however Mrs Devine has put their new spelling words and homework grid inside. Their spelling tests will be this Friday.

This term in English we will continue focusing on simple sentences and placing full stops in the correct places. We will continue to revise recount writing, however will move onto writing narratives and using descriptive language. In phonics we will begin looking at long vowels and different ways that we can write sounds. We are starting with Magic E in week 2 and 3. In reading, we will be focusing on finding details and key ideas in a text and the students will be monitoring their fluency.

In Maths we will revise number and place value concepts. We are becoming confident in understanding tens and ones! We will consolidate the mental strategies from last term (counting on, counting back, rainbow facts for addition and subtraction) and learn some new strategies including doubles, near doubles and skip counting. We have a new maths challenge to practise fluency of our mental strategies each week. We will continue practising our measurement skills in length as well as learn some language of chance and work with 3D shapes.

In HASS we are continuing to learn about how our daily lives have changed from past to present. We enjoyed finding out about olden day schools last term, and the way toys have changed. This term we will learn about the different roles of family members past and present; and how chores, clothing and play have changed.

Mrs Devine will be looking at light and sound in Science and I am sure there will be lots of fun experiments involved. In Health the students are following on from some of Constable Care’s messages from last term. They will be learning about how to keep safe in different situations.

This week we will miss library again due to the changes in the timetable with swimming. However, next week we return to normal and the library is looking fantastic!

Important Swimming Info

Hi everyone,

As tomorrow will be early close, we will not have time to change out of our bathers when we return to school. Please send an extra robe or jumper that students can wear home to keep warm in. You are welcome to use the toilets etc at school for them to change at the end of the day. Students who attend Camp Australia will be able to change once they have signed in.

Swimming Lessons

I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!

Swimming lessons will be commencing on our first day back of Term Two and will run through week 1 and 2. 

We will be attending the last session of the day. We will leave on the bus at 12:50 with lessons running from 1:15 to 1:55. We should return to school at around 2:15  and will change in the classrooms.

During swimming we will need to have early lunch. This means you will be unable to order lunch at the canteen.

You are welcome to come and watch the lessons. If you do come along you will need to come through the front desk and pay the entrance fee.

What to bring 

Crunch and Sip

Recess

Packed lunch (no canteen orders)

Children need to come to school wearing bathers under their school uniforms

In a bag: towel, thongs, goggles and underwear

Please label all belongings and bags.

I look forward to seeing everyone back at school on Wednesday!
