We welcome Harry Campbell, Mia Samuel, Joe McLean and James Fahey to Room 3 this term. I know we are all ready to help them settle in as Room 3 students, and that they are keen, as a couple of them took the opportunity to hang their bags and join us for prayer on the last day of the term. Meanwhile Mrs Flannery was looking for them!!
Interviews: are on Tuesday and Wednesday. I have messaged on Seesaw a few parents who I noticed had not booked by the end of last week, just to check that this was not an oversight. It will be super to touch base and share where your children are at. I do like to have your child at the meeting so that they can talk about their learning with you.
Book Fair: from Ashton Scholastic (Lucky Books) is running from Monday to Thursday this week. The books are on display in the hall which is open from 8:30 - 9am and then again after school.
- I am sure many of you have a favourite children's book, and as part of the Book Fair Week I would love some parents or grandparents to come and read their favourites to the class. Please let me know if you could do this - we will accommodate a time that suits you.
- Friday = Dress up as your favourite book character and bring the book to share. There will be a parade starting at 11am
Cross Country: The school competition will be held on Wednesday 31st July at 1pm. In preparation for this we will be using daily fitness time to bring our running skills up to speed. Please wear sports uniform and running shoes from now until the cross country. Uniform items only - green track pants/black shorts, school sports shirt and jersey or tracksuit jacket if you have one. Mr Yeoman is the organiser of this event and will be delighted to hear from you if you are able to help as a track marshall on the day. email@example.com
Mass 28th July 9am has the sacrament of Baptism where a number of students including Sophia will be baptised. This is a special "welcome" and it would be wonderful if some of our families could attend. Our Religious Education strand at the start of this term is "Sacrament" and we are learning about Baptism. Children will be asking you about their baptism as part of our homework, and this Sunday is a perfect opportunity for them to watch and take part in a Baptismal Mass.
Spelling: We are beginning to look at the "long i" spelling pattern.
Family Ski Days: have been booked for Wednesday 7th August and Wednesday 4th September. Watch the newsletter for further information. Families can head for the snow for a day and pay school rates.
Looking forward to a term with lots of exciting learning.
