Term 1 Week 6
Monday 5th March
It was lovely to see so many of you last week. Firstly at the parent teacher interviews which I found very useful, and secondly at the school picnic which was very well attended and the weather turned out to be lovely.
Library – We missed out on our library time last week due to the interviews so children will have had their books for two weeks. Please remember to send them in and we will get new books for this week.
Mathletics – Passwords are in homework books and homework will be set this week. Mathletics directs children to complete their homework before they can compete in Mathletics Live.
Chocolate Fundraising – Chocolates will continue to be issued to children this week. Sales are to take place over a five week period with Friday 30th March being the close off day. Boxes are selling for $30 with $10.50 from each box going directly to the school. It has been suggested that the profits from this year’s chocolate sales goes on supporting the new property development, possible on the landscaping of the new rooms.
Spelling City – I have put all the spelling lists from the back of the homework books onto a programme called Spelling City. This can be accessed through the class blog or by going to http://www.spellingcity.com/
Once there choose the tab ‘Find a List’ and type ‘Mrs Duligall’ onto the search box with ‘Teacher Name’ as the criteria. Click on my name in the search result below and you will get the Essential Spelling Lists 1 to 5. (The big lists are split into smaller parts.) Children can use this site to learn the spelling of the words, practise through ‘games’ and they can also test themselves. The programme reinforces words they already know as well as those they need to know.
I will be out of the classroom on Tuesday and Wednesday this week with CRT (Curriculum Release Time). I will still be in school. On Tuesday the Junior Team meet to plan our next unit of work. On Wednesday I will be around preparing resources and having some one-to-one time with children.
