Welcome back to TERM 2


Welcome back to Term 2! Another 10 weeks full of play, learning and laughter with friends. 

Hope everyone had a happy and safe Easter break! But it's time to get back to Kindy to learn and grow together with another busy term ahead. 

Doors open per usual at 8.45am.  

Everyday your child will still need- 

- A hat ( please return) 

-  Drink bottle

-Small cushion ( please return) 

- Separate container with fruit and healthy snacks for morning tea. 

- lunch box 

- Running shoes on sports days:  Wednesday for Kindy Red and Thursday for Kindy Blue. 

- Don't forget to put your name down for parent help. Your very welcome to choose a morning time slot from 9-11am  or 11:30-1pm on your child's day.   

The first few weeks we are focusing on Mother's day, having a teddy bear's week , exploration with colours and shapes and beginning our alphabet letter sound programme. 

A note will be going home to save the date for our Mother's day morning in Kindy. This will be held at the start of Week 4 to give all our wonderful Mums a bit of notice. 

Your child is going to see some new spaces inside Kindy. We have a florist shop set up, a hair salon and a yoga station ( we want to  learn  how to spoil our Mums). 

We also have our favourite constants that we never want to change: building and loose parts area, fine motor tuff tray, play dough, drawing and collage centres.   

The Speech Therapy assessment will be under way in week 2 as well as the Brigance Screen. Both of these assessments are crucial in gathering data on your child's oral language, physical and cognitive development for their age. 

BUT WAIT THE MOST EXCITING THING IS STARTING and the children have been waiting with anticipation for it to finally begin... 

Keep watching this space for your child's chosen day and what parents can do at home to help prepare your child to tell news. 

I will see you all soon.

Miss Horrocks.
