In the age of the dinosaurs!

DinosaursRef
Practically every child, at some point, has been enthused with dinosaurs
.

Dinosaurs were a great part of our world history, and even though we may never fully understand them or why they have become extinct, the fact remains that the age of dinosaurs must have been an amazing feat, and we all, in some way, would like to know more about the mystery that is dinosaurs.
Children were asked what they knew about dinosaurs and we must admit- most children are well on truly on their way to becoming dinosaur experts once the term is complete!

Welcome Back

Webfetti.com

Welcome back to Term 2. We trust that you all had an enjoyable break and are ready for another busy term.

This term it is not compulsory for the children to wear their hats so these are able to stay at home unless we are lucky enough to get some moe sunny weather.

Children will continue to need readers and drink bottles at school every day and will need to have these out of their bag before school starts each morning.

Please remind your child that they go to library on a Friday morning and that is is their responsibility to have their library books in the tub or they will not be able to borrow new books.

If your child has any dinosaur books that they would like to share with the class then they are more than welcome to bring them in. Please ensure they have a name on them somewhere though.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to come in and see either of us.
