Welcome to the 2018 School Year!

Room 6 are settling in exceptionally well, continuing past friendships as well as making many new ones. We’ve enjoyed learning about Noticing, Sorting and pre-numeracy strategies in Maths, as well as a sound a day in Spelling. Ask your child what sounds we have learnt so far:

  • s (2 sounds: s, z)
  • t
  • p
  • i (2 sounds: i, I)
  • n
  • a (5 sounds: a, ai, ar, or, o)       and
  • c (2 sounds: c, s)

We have also been learning recount writing in English, about families in Inquiry and social skills – as well as many more things!

Please ensure you have downloaded the Dojo app and have joined our class – please email or see me if you need a new code.

Please note all Opal building classrooms open at 8.40 am – Lessons start at 8.50am. Teachers on yard duty at 8.30am.

Looking forward to a great school year,

Kate Monaco
