Some things you might like to know about Room 10…


Reading
Reading is an important skill and reading at home is helpful in helping your child gain confidence as a reader. Reading should be enjoyable for both the child and the parents, so relax and have some fun! Please ensure that your child reads daily. Readers are changed twice a week on Mondays and Wednesdays. Book bags should be brought to school every day.

Concept Learning
Our focus for Concept Learning during term 2 is Thinking and Questioning, under the umbrella of Connecting and Reflecting and Language of Learning.  

Library
Friday is our library day. Please make sure your child returns their library books to school each Thursday so they can borrow some new library books to bring home. Children are only allowed 2 library books at a time. 

 

Some other helpful tips for parents…

Water Bottles
Please make sure your child has a water bottle that they can use in class. This lessens the interruptions to the students learning time. Please ensure that it is named.

Brain food
We eat brain food everyday around 10. Please ensure that your child has a healthy snack such as fruit, vegetables, or cheese, in their lunch box.
