Good afternoon parents, I hope you had a lovely weekend and have enjoyed the beautiful sunshine and beaches that we are so blessed to have.  Just a bit of information for the final 10 days of Year Two.... Can you believe the year is nearly over? It has flown by. HOMEWORK Homework and reading is now finished for the year. We ask if you have any reading books at home that you please bring them back to school as they are required for inventory. For the  remaining two weeks, I encourage your child to continue reading books they have at home.  EXCURSION - BUSSELTON JETTY A reminder that we have our excursion to Busselton Jetty this Friday.  Please ensure that your child comes dressed in their sports uniform with their teal top and bathers underneath.

Welcome to our Well Being Week

Good afternoon parents,  We hope you had a wonderful weekend and got to enjoy some of that beautiful sunshine. We had some very excited children today who were eager to share what they got up to on the weekend 😎 Well Being Week Welcome to well being week. This week OLC is focusing on the children's well being and doing activities each day to promote this.  We had a very zen day today and we were lucky enough to practise our yoga skills with Miss Christie and learnt all about square breathing and how we can use this strategy to calm us down and relax. This is a strategy we will be practising each day this week.  On Thursday we will be practising tapping with Mrs Geraldine Page and on Friday the children are encouraged to wear a t-shirt that makes them happy 😁😃  Seesaw - Readers Theatre On Wednesday 3rd of November, we will be filming your child completing a readers theatre of Jack and the Beanstalk. The children have worked very hard on playing their role over the last two weeks.

SeeSaw You would have seen that last week we posted two amazing pieces of work. We posted an Art sample of our beautiful proteas and a picture of our InitiaLit Progress Monitoring Test. If your child does require some review with their sound acquisition, we would recommend reviewing the spelling lists from the homework book as well as the fluency mazes. Keep an eye out on some wonderful writing that will be posted later this week based around the mentor text 'How to make a disgusting sandwich'.
