Back to School for 2012

Cool Flash Comments
Hi Everyone and Welcome back for 2012. We hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are looking forward to the exciting year we have planned!
It has already been a busy two days and the children have settled in beautifully! We are looking forward to getting to know you and your child over the coming weeks.
The children have already shown us that they are great listeners, readers, writers and counters and by the end of the year they will become experts on ‘The Community’, ‘Dinosaurs’, ‘Fairy Tales’ and ‘The Farm’.
The following photo slideshow shows the children participating in a ‘Get to Know You’ activity where the children were asked to find other children in the grade who could complete each task on the sheet.


What did you learn about your classmates?


What was your favourite thing in the 1st two days of school?

      Thanks for being the first person to leave a comment on our blog. I was very excited to read it. I m glad you enjoyed the memory competition. Mrs Hollands and I thought it was a great way to help you all remember where to find things. If you keep up the great work and behaviour you may win a prize from the raffle draw each week.

      It is so lovely to hear that you have loved everything about being in Grade 1. I love my new class too. Grade 1 is very exciting and I am sure you are going to enjoy it! I bet you are excited about learning about the farm- we even get to hatch chickens from eggs.

      Thanks for your comment on the blog. The getting to know you activity was a fun one, I found out lots of new information about different children in the grade. The biography sheet has also helped me get to know you all! Do you have a dog at home? I’d like to have a dog too one day!

      You are right- no one is taller than you in both classes! That is really special! I wish I was super tall! I am glad you have enjoyed the maths games we have played. Lots of great things happen in Grade One. Well done on a terrific week.

    • Hi Fintan
      Well done for commenting on the blog and for remembering to start with ‘hi’ and end with who your comment was from. Asking me a question made your comment 5 star!!
      I’m glad you are enjoying the joke of the day. Sometimes its hard to find good jokes. Do you have a favourite joke?
      Maths is a fun subject to learn about, there are so many different parts, numbers, measuring, patterns, money, shapes and lots more. Do you have a favourite maths topic?
      I think I like reading best, I like sharing stories with all of you and teaching you to be good readers. Do you have a favourite book?

  4. Hi, I’m back. My favourite book is Dinosaur Cove. Do you have a favourite book? When is your Birthday? I wonder who is going to win the raffle draw.

    Bye, Fintan

    • Hi Fintan
      It’s great to see you back on the blog. You have done well to leave so many great comments. I’d like to hear more about your favourite book, what is it about? I like to read but sometimes find it hard to find the time. I like to read true stories and am reading a book about an AFL footballer at the moment. I think there are lots of great children’s authors though, I especially like Mem Fox and Jeannie Baker. From memory you read lots of Mem Fox books in Prep, did you have a favourite? My birthday is in October and I always get very excited when it’s nearly my birthday. I hope you win the raffle draw soon!

      Well done for leaving a comment on the blog, make sure you include who you are writing to and who the comment is from. I really enjoyed having Mick visit us. He taught us lots of things about being a paramedic and the different equipment that a paramedic carries. I liked going out and looking at the ambulance. I hope you are enjoying your holidays and are doing lots of reading.
      Miss Hunichen
