Family Book Club
This Semester, we are reading Mr Popper's Penguins. You may borrow this book from the GLAD Centre as a special, month-long loan to read with your family. On Thursday, the 2 June, we will come together with students and their families in the GLAD Centre from 3.15pm-5.00pm to watch the movie. Please bring a comfy pillow and blanket to snuggle in while watching the movie.
RSVPs are essential for this event to go ahead. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org letting us know how many adults and children from your family will be in attendance for the Movie Afternoon.
Book Club Quiz Question: In Chapter 7, Captain Cook collects odds and ends from around the house. What does he use these things for?
Read, Write Inc
Students are being reassessed for their groups for the next cycle of groups for Read, Write Inc. Our Preppies are joining us for the Read, Write Inc journey from Week 7, and we are so impressed with the sounds that they have already learnt in their classrooms. Your child may in the same group to consolidate their learning as they may not quite be ready to move into the next group yet or they may have moved into the next group. Junior Learning Support has also been busy assessing students for the tutoring component of the program which will begin in the coming weeks to give intensive one-on-one time regularly throughout the week to revise sounds speedily.
