A lot of certificates were awarded at our Friday afternoon parade. Congratulations to all Preps who earned one. Keep reading everyday and practising your words. A copy of our new duck level words will be sent home in BEE folders next week for students to practise. Our duck levels are awarded for correct spelling with a focus on the words coded using our duck hands. I hope everyone has a lovely, rested weekend.
I heard that this activity was most enjoyable today! Yesterday we started building our race tracks for our horses and today students finished these constructions. I can not wait to see the finished result tomorrow – watch this space for photos.
Please let Mrs P know if your child is missing any colour level certificate they may have passed while learning sight words this year. I try to keep record of all certificates attained but if I have missed one let me know so I can get these printed and organised before the end of the term. You child should have a collection of certificates for sight word levels achieved to date, any student of week certificates, Bronze or Silver school level awards, SSP colour levels achieved (Green, Purple, Yellow or Blue) and our new SSP Duck Level awards which are given to students who can not only read these coded sight words but spell them and use their duck hands too! Miss Emma from SSP has 7 levels to achieve for duck level words which will equate to correct coding and spelling of 440 words – fantastic!
This week in mathematics we will be designing a house suitable for a teddy. Please help your child find a suitable teddy at home (not too big) that we can easily fit inside a shoebox. Mrs P will have some spares if anyone does not have a small teddy or equivalent small soft toy to bring to school. Students may bring these tomorrow (Monday) or anyday this week – we will use them each day but especially need all teddies in by Friday for our final house constructions. We will also be seeking boxes (larger than a shoebox) to house our teddy inside. Teddy constructions will be lots of fun this week!
