We are continuing to look closely at ‘The Brothers Quibble’ by Aaron Blabey. Spalding Quibble is a character with mixed feelings after the arrival of a new baby brother called Bunny! Some classes are looking at characterisation and trying to understand what the brothers were thinking and what they may have been saying to each other.
There are some Christmas writing tasks coming up next week, including a Job Application to be an Elf.
Ask your child why they think they should get the job of an Elf in Santa’s Kingdom.
There has been a lot of revision in class and online over the past weeks. Using their toolbox of strategies we have learnt, students are covering topics like data collection, shapes and fast facts. It has been fabulous to see the growth in all students learning as they prepare for Year 2.
Year 1 have been designing their very own park. They have come up with a list of activities and facilities to make the park as fun as possible. Students are then representing this list in a map format and learning to include a key on the side to list the major features.
Some classes will venture into discussions about what might happen if we don’t look after our environment. We will look at what littering is and who is responsible for it. This will lead us into a discussion about the importance of recycling.
Ask your child what things can be recycled. Your child may want to set up a recycling regime in your house over the winter break.
While Year 1 did not get to take part in the Transition Day this week, we know that they have a million questions about next year. We will have a lesson next week where children can ask their questions.
Ask your child what they are most looking forward to in Year 2 next year.

Please contact the Library staff via email email@example.com if you would like to make an appointment to return and borrow some books in Week 11 for your child(ren) for the holidays.
If you prefer to return books only, you may drop them off to the G/F security office or have an older sibling return them to the Library.
