Prayer

Dear God,

Thank you for the time we spent with family and friends over the holidays. We pray you will be with us throughout this term as we continue to grow.

Amen


Home Inquiry for Foundations started in Term 1

Take home books

Use the sheets sent home to remind the children and remind yourself of the strategies when they are reading. Try and allow the children to use picture power then allow them time to sound out the words and blend the words themselves before you help. Learning new tricky words will develop their reading strategy of snap word power further. Try and encourage your children to use expression when reading the book

 

Jolly Sounds

We have learnt all the Jolly Phonics single sound and digraph sounds. Continue to practice the sounds especially the digraphs.

If they wish to extend themselves see if they can find some words that start or have these sounds in them. Continue to practise all the already learnt sounds.

 

Tricky Words

Keep practising your tricky word ring. Use the idea sheet handed out to help engage your children in a fun way.

Extension: We will now be adding an extension activity to the home inquiry box for students who have learned all 60 tricky words. These activities will have a spelling and writing focus. This week the activity is to write their tricky words using bottle caps with letters on them. Please see or email your child’s teacher if you would like to borrow a set of bottle cap letters.


Home Inquiry for Mid-Year Foundations

Rest and Play

Your children have been working extremely hard all day at school and we encourage you to let your child rest and play when they get home.


The learning week ahead:

Jolly Phonics: all sounds review/mid-years: sounds s,a,t

Maths: Inquiring into location and operations (addition)

Christian Studies: Inquiring into love and grace – God’s love for us

How We Express Ourselves:

Central Idea: People express and communicate in a variety of ways

LOI 1: How feelings affect us

Literacy focus: Persuasive texts

Readers Workshop: Readers have strategies to get to know characters

Bookmaking: Authors write persuasive texts to communicate their perspective

 

Volunteers: As per the school newsletter, we are so excited to have volunteers back in the classroom! We will be following social distancing etiquette. Can you please email through the days of the week you are available or if you there are certain weeks that you can volunteer so we can create a roster. We will upload the roster to Seesaw. If you are not sure if your checks are up to date, you can check in the office.

 

Back into the classroom: We have missed having families in the classroom and are excited that you can come back in now. Please be mindful of physically distancing between families across the 2 classroom spaces. As was said in the newsletter, we have noticed how responsible the students have become with their morning routines and settling into the school day. You might like to think about having set independence days where your child can come in by themselves to continue to encourage their responsibility.

 

Rest days: After 3 weeks away from school it may take some time for your child to build up their stamina for the long days in the classroom. Slowly start reintroducing home inquiry but make sure your child is having the rest they need when they get home. If your child needs a big rest we encourage rest days for them to recoup.

 

Allergies: We have a few students with nut, Kiwi fruit and egg allergies. As we eat as a whole cluster please ensure that your child does not have any of these foods in their lunchboxes or fruit snacks. Thank you.

 

Seesaw photos: The photos posted on Seesaw are for your child and your immediate family to keep informed about your child’s learning at school. Please do not share photos with other people, especially if they have other children in them.

 

Hand cream: As we are in the cooler months, skin may tend to be drier. Please apply moisturiser to your child’s hands both morning and night if you notice some skin irritation.

 

Nature play: We encourage students to bring gum boots for nature play during the rainier months. These can be sent to school in a labelled plastic bag for your child to change in and out of at recess and lunch.

 

Spare clothes: With the rainier months upon us students can find puddles to play in at recess and lunch. Unfortunately they end up with wet clothes, in particular pants and socks. It would be appreciated if you could put a spare pair of navy/black pants and white socks into your child’s bag if they need to change.

 

Assembly – Classes sharing this week are 5/6N and 1/2C.

Combined worship – this Friday 24 July led by Year 5/6N and Friday 31 July led by Year 5/6G.

P & F Meeting – Monday 27 July at 7 pm in the staff admin building – all welcome. The meeting will take place as a ‘normal’ meeting adhering to physical distancing.

Principal Tour – Wednesday 5 August from 9.30-10.30am.

School Photo’s – Save the date – Tuesday 11 August. More information to follow in the iNewsletter.

 

Keep smiling,

Celeste and Alyssum

Term 3 Week 3

Prayer
Dear God,
Thank you for the beautiful sunshine this week and the chances to learn and grow each day. We pray that we may find opportunities to bless and serve those around us this week.
Amen

Dear Parents,

As you receive your child’s semester progress report this week, please keep in mind that the report is only one of the ways in which we report student progress. The progress report meet’s the government requirement to report against subjects with an A-E grading against the year level achievement standard. We also report through Seesaw and this is where you will find ongoing reporting and evidence of what your child is able to do and the standard they have achieved.
From time to time, parents of students in blended classes have asked how we cater for and work with 2 year levels in one class and how can parents see this in action. Some of the ways in which this differentiation is explicit seen is in:
 Cluster Newsletters – each week, the teachers provide information about how each year level are working in different areas of learning
 Jolly Grammar Spelling – each of our blended classes divides into year level groupings at the beginning of the week for the introduction of the spelling focus for the week. Each year level generally learns a different sound and letter combination although, from time to time, the sound for 2 year levels may be the same but more complex letter combinations to make that sound are introduced in the higher year level.
 Jolly Grammar – a weekly grammar component is taught and learnt at each separate year level.
 In Maths, many areas are covered at both year levels within a cluster. Yet, within an area such as ‘money’ students in different year levels learn and are assessed against year level standards. An example of this is that Year 5/6 work on ‘time’. The year 5s learn 12 and 24 hour time while the year 6s learn how to read and interpret timetables. These expectations are referred to in teachers comments about tasks in Seesaw.
 Teachers construct checklists and rubrics that show specific year level expectations. Sometimes teachers use a rubric to plot where students begin their learning and then revisit the rubric to see how they have developed and learnt. Some of these rubrics are for teachers assessing purposes due to the ‘teacher jargon’ that is included. Others are shared with students so they understand their level of achievement so far and are able to set goals for improvement.
 Seesaw comments made by teachers are important in understanding year level expectations. Students in different year levels will generally have different comments for what may be a similar task because each year level is being assessed against a different standard.
 Please keep in mind that the Australian Curriculum expectations in the subjects of PE, health, the Arts, Japanese and technologies are across the year levels of F-2, 3-4 and 5-6. Students work to and are assessed against one standard that covers the 2 or 3 years. This works well with blended classes
One final note is that our written report does not include the assessment of units of inquiry. This assessment is provided through Seesaw.
If you have any questions about your child’s report, I encourage you to discuss these things with your child’s teacher. If you have any questions about the assessment and reporting process in general, I am also happy to discuss this with you.
Yours sincerely,
Jayne Zadow
