Welcome to Blue Haven 5 2019 Term 1
from Mrs Jefferies, Ms Hatcher, Mrs Campbell and Ms Kelly
We are excited to welcome you all back to a new year of learning in our wonderful Kindergarten/Pre-primary class. It is sure to be filled with exciting new opportunities for learning.
Parent Help starts in Week 2. It is always exciting to have parents and carers stay to help. It makes a huge impact on the programs and experiences we can offer to your children. Parent Help is usually from 8.45 -10.30am. If you would like to come at another time, for example, 12-1 or 2-3 please let us know. We love help at any time of the day!
If there is no one rostered on and you are able to stay and chop the fruit that would be fabulous too! It only takes about 15 minutes. We are grateful for any help. We will also put out a bag of laundry each Friday, if you would like to help by taking this we would be most thankful.
These acts of kindness are very appreciated.
We will use Seesaw to keep you informed about important events and special moments that occur within the day. If you have any questions or difficulties please let us know.
There will be many special events this term. A Class Meeting will be help in the first 2 weeks, there will be a meeting for Kindergarten parents about our Side by Side Reading Program in week 4, a Learning Journey will be held towards the end of the term, a teddy bear day will take place and the Kindergarten children will have the first of their 4 Science Discovery Days!
The themes for this term are Bears (mainly Kindergarten) and Ourselves and Our Families. In Numeracy we will be counting small collections, up to 10 for Kindy and to 20 and beyond for Pre-primary, naming and describing shapes and learning about the days of the week. In Literacy there will be a focus of rhyme and playing with sounds. The Pre-primary children will be learning the names of all the letters and the common sounds they make.
As we start a new year and reconnect with familiar faces and greet our new friends we will have a special focus on the Tribes agreements of Attentive Listening and Mutual Respect.
As we play and learn together we hope to inspire each member of our classroom community to do their Personal Best.
