Miss Hunichen is back again!! Another grade of Prep children. She is sooooo excited to be welcoming 22 new faces to New Gisborne Primary School and is looking forward to many new adventures. Explore our blog and get ready to meet the DELIGHTFUL children of Prep D. After exploring our blog please leave us a comment.
Last week the children in Grade 1B and 1C learnt about taking care of themselves. As part of this topic the children discussed the sorts of foods they should eat regularly and the sorts of foods they should limit. To show what they had learnt they worked in pairs to cut healthy and unhealthy foods out of supermarket catalogues. Have a look at their awesome work below.
What are your favourite healthy foods?
Which treats are your favourite for every now and then?
This week we will be looking at the foods that keep us healthy. We are asking for your junk mail- supermarket catalogues that you no longer need! The children will be creating a collage of good foods and treat foods. We can’t wait to show you!! Please send them to school with your child ASAP. We will not require anymore after Friday.
The children of grade 1B and 1C have settled in beautifully to their new grades. They have been well behaved and have adapted well to new rules, routines and consequences. They have been bright and cheery and excellent at getting organised in the mornings.
During week one they learnt so much, even if some of it was just revision! They learnt all about rhyming words, counting patterns, location words, each others likes and dislikes, families, correct letter formation and pencil grip and really enjoyed colouring in their front covers for each of their books.
At the end of the week we asked the children to reflect on why their first week in grade one was great. Here are their responses:
* we did counting
* we coloured front covers
* we learnt about location on the play equipment
* we had a lining up competition
* we did brain gym and kilometre club
* we did cutting and pasting
* we got to do some writing
* we have lovely teachers
* we get to have a big class family
* we went on a school work and got to create a map
This week Mrs Hollands and Miss Hunichen have been working hard to get to know all of the students. We have found out what they like, don’t like and who some of their friends are. We have learnt about some of the things they can do and the sorts of personalities that some of them have. We have a delightful bunch of children this year and we hope you enjoy getting to know a little bit about them from the following slideshows!
