Nature Play SA Incursion

Posted on

On Tuesday, 19th March, Nature Play SA came to our school to do an Incursion with our class. The students got to play with a range of things from nature.

First they constructed things with small chunks of wood rounds. They were challenged to see who could build the tallest tower. Then the students made small tee pees using 3 short sticks. After that each student was given a piece of clay and they could use it to place different natural things in it, such as flowers, seed pods etc, to create a piece of art. Finally the students made a seed ball, which they were able to take home.

The students had a great time using their imagination, creativity and problem solving skills to play in nature.

Week 7

Posted on

Don’t forget next week, Week 7, is a short week. Monday is a public holiday and Tuesday is a pupil free day. If your child has their Sharing on either of these days they will need to do their Sharing on one of the other school days. Those students can choose which day they do their Sharing, either Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.


Swimming

Posted on

Don’t forget next week is Swimming week. To make it easier for the students can you please send them to school wearing sandals/ thongs and dress them in their bathers with either a dressing gown, or casual clothes over the top. This way they are all ready to go down to the pool.

When they get out of the pool they can quickly dry themselves off and place the dressing gown/ casual clothes back on over the top of their bathers. Students ARE NOT allowed to change out of their bathers at the swimming centre. When we return to school students will be able to change into dry clothes.

Can students please bring an extra small bag to school for their towel and goggles. In their school bag can you please pack their change of clothes which they can put on when we return to school.

Please ensure your child’s name is on every item of clothing, goggles, towel, etc.

Due to the time we will be leaving and returning from swimming, we will eat lunch before we leave and eat recess when we return.

Welcome to 2019!

Posted on

Welcome to 2019! I hope you and your child/ren had a relaxing, fun and safe break. From the handouts sent home, with your child, on the first day of school you will read that DayMap, Skoolbag and this blog are my main modes of sharing our learning as well as what is happening in the class/ school with families and our learning community. Because of this, please take your time to look through and familiarise yourself with this blog.

The blog will be updated at least once a week with information regarding what we have been doing in the class, spelling lists as well as important dates and events happening at school. We love to read positive comments left by people visiting the blog, but remember to follow the blogging guidelines.  You can find the blogging guidelines on the page called “Blog Guidelines” located at the top of this page.

Along the top of the screen, under the title ‘Mrs Fisher’s Class‘, are headings- ‘Blog guidelines‘, ‘Inquiry Unit’, Numeracy, Reading, and Spelling. If you click on them they will take you to that page which has information regarding what we are currently doing in the class on that topic. The ‘Spelling‘ page is updated weekly with the student’s spelling words for the week. This allows families to be aware of the sound as well as words being taught each week and, if they wish, it enables them to work on those words with their child at home. If you look in the ‘Inquiry Unit‘ page you will notice it explains what Inquiry Unit we will be exploring for the term and there is already a link to this terms Sharing topics (this is also in your child’s Communication Book along with the day they are required to do Sharing).

If you look on the right hand side of the page you will also see there is an Email subscription box. If you type your email in the box you will receive an email every time I have added a post to the main page of the blog. This will save you time, as you will know when to check the blog for something new just by viewing your emails. However, you will not get an email when I have placed information on the pages, such as the ‘Spelling’ page.

I am really looking forward to working with you to ‘stretch’ your child’s thinking and help them grow this year.
