Wow, it’s Term 4 already!

Let’s finish the year off with some fun & learning in Room 3!


Library Day - Monday

Please help your child remember to bring their library book back to school every Monday so they can choose a new book to take home.


Bookbags /drink bottles - to be at school every day please. 



We continue our focus on the arts in Term 4, eg dance, music, drama and visual arts, like painting and sketching.


Health & PE

Athletics – over the first five weeks of the term, we will be learning some aspects of athletics in preparation for our Year 1/2 Athletics Display on Friday 19th Nov, in Week 5.  Children need to have appropriate PE clothing each Friday.

Swimming will commence later in the term weather permitting.



Throughout the term, we will continue to work on early literacy acquisition skills through Barbara Brann’s Casey the Caterpillar shapes and letter formation, Yolanda Soryl’s phonics programme, and the Early Words. We will use these new skills and knowledge to explore a range of shared books and poems. As children become ‘literacy ready’ they will join the Guided Reading and Writing Programme’s.



We will continue to work on the Getting Ready for Pr1me Programme.  The focus this term will be number knowledge, addition and subtraction and mathematical language.
