The K2 teachers are delighted to see your children return to school and settle back into their routines after the Christmas break.
This term, the K2s will begin a new unit of inquiry - How The World Works. In this unit, the children will have the opportunity to inquire into the process of change and learn about the properties of different materials. As part of the unit, the children will participate in a range of cooking experiences. Therefore, please inform your child’s class teacher of any new dietary requirements specific to your child.
As the weather is getting colder many children are coming to school with several layers on. Although we acknowledge that the temperature outside has fallen, the school climate has remained the same therefore some children are starting to overheat. Please consider this when dressing your child for school – we would recommend a warm jacket and a sweatshirt instead of numerous layers underneath the uniform. We would also like to remind parents to ensure that all clothing is clearly labelled (incl. socks, tights & shoes) with your child’s name on the tag.
We are looking forward to continue working with families and children this term.
