A few reminders

Scholastic Book Orders - Due Friday 2nd November.

T-shirt orders - If your child is part of the speech choir (only 2 in our class) they must have a t-shirt. The order form and payment is due Friday 2nd November. All other children (unless they have main parts) are required to wear their school uniform for the production. T-shirt purchases are optional for all other children.

Cake Stall - This Thursday at morning tea time. Everything is either 50c or $1. This is a fundraiser for the year 5/6 camps.

Reading - This week everyone in the class has received a copy of The Elves and The Shoemaker song. Both sides need to be read (and sung where possible) and recited each night please. This song is part of the production and it needs to be learned off by heart. Room 11 are doing a fantastic job with their production singing practises in class.

Production - Coming up in Week 5 (2 weeks away). This is a WHOLE SCHOOL production - attendance is compulsory. If your child is unable to attend you need to address a letter to Mr Macmillan explaining why. There will be one matinee performance and two evening performances. Please keep checking the newsletter for details. Performance times and ticket prices are being finalised this week.

Week 2 - Term 4

WOW! what a windy start to the term. It was great to see everyone back at school and to hear all their holiday news.

SWIMMING - NO swimming this week. Our swimming weeks this term are the odd weeks (1, 3, 5, 7, 9). I will remind the children each Friday when our swimming is an update it on the blog too. Children need togs, towel and a plastic bag each day when we are swimming.

HATS - these are compulsory EVERY DAY this term. NO HAT = NO PLAY. Please ensure you're child has their hat everyday.

UNIFORM - full summer uniform is expected to be worn from this week. Thank you to all those children who were in their correct uniform last week. Please NAME every piece of your child's uniform - there are around 100 students wearing the same sizes. Please also make sure your child's jumper is in their bag - especially for the chilly mornings and the wind.

 A Library book has gone missing in our room. I have been hunting the classroom - and will continue hunting. Can you please also have a hunt at home and if you find it bring it back - no questions asked. It is called - I am not sleepy and I will not go to bed. It is a Charlie and Lola book. Many thanks.
