Term 2 is in full swing and we are busy learning how to write narratives, solve addition problems and care for the environment. Can you believe we’re nearly halfway through this term?! Time flies when you’re having fun!
A few friendly reminders for parents..
As the weather is changing the mornings are becoming very cold, please ensure your children are dressed wearing layers. We have the heaters on in our classrooms and the sun manages to peek through during the day, which means for those children not wearing layers they can become very hot and disgruntled. Additionally, please make sure all children’s clothes are clearly labelled with their full name and grade. We are finding that a lot of jackets and jumpers are disappearing and they are more likely to be returned if they are labelled correctly. It’s also time for colds and sniffles, so please ensure your children are getting plenty of rest to combat any bugs going around.
The following information regarding daily sleep requirements is from the Australian Centre for Education in Sleep.
- Babies under 1: 14-18 hours throughout the day and night
- Toddlers: 12-14 hours per 24 hour period
- Primary school: 10-12 hours per day
- High school: 8-10 hours per day
- Adults: 7-9 hours per day
Please make sure your child begins each day with a drink bottle full of water. During class it is less disruptive to their learning if they can quickly get a drink from their bottle.
Also, next week is Education Week and all the classrooms will be opening their doors to students and their families between 7pm and 8pm. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to visit your child/ren’s classrooms and see some of the work we have been doing.
We hope to see you there!
Have a great weekend!
