Hi everyone! We hope you all having a great day at home today! Tomorrow our teachers will turn on their classroom pages with some tasks for you to do on Tuesday and Wednesday if you have completed the paper pack. Until then though, here are some ideas that you may choose to do while you are learning at home:
The holidays are here again and we'll be spending the next few days thinking about what we might do over the next two weeks while there is no school. Catch up on some sleep is a big priority for a few in our household. We also plan on spending time walking for our exercise each day and catching up with some friends and relatives on zoom. Maybe we will also treat ourselves with some food deliveries as well! What sorts of things have you got planned for the holidays? What are you looking forward to?
Take care and have a restful break and we will see you all again from Monday October 5th! A reminder that remote learning continues for all students at school in the first week of next term and we are expecting to see our F-2 students back on site from Week 2 (October 12th).
What beautiful spring weather we have had over the last week. Our guinea pigs are out in the sunshine most days and they are often visited by next door's cat! Hopefully this is what the weather will be like in the school holidays next week! What do you enjoy about the weather changing and getting warmer?
Who doesn't like curling up in a cubby? Bruno went missing for a little while the other day and we found him curled up snugly in a pile of clothes in the laundry, Unfortunately for Bruno it was about to go into the washing machine and he had to find a spot somewhere else! What is the best cubby you have ever built? Was it inside or outside? Do you have any other spots in your house where you like to curl up and have a snooze or read a book?
Do you know it is 7 years this week since we adopted Bruno from the RSPCA? He was 9 when he came to live with us and is about 16 years old now. Do you have any pets at your house? How long have they lived with you? Have they ever lived with a different family? Maybe we can put up a gallery of pets on this page if you send a photo to the school email account (firstname.lastname@example.org).
What a lot of amazingly windy weather we have had over the last week. Did you hear the wind at your place last week and over the weekend? When we have been on our walks over the last few days we have seen lots of trees that have been blown over or have lost branches. At our house on the very windy night last week it sounded like the roof was going to blow off! Luckily it didn't and we were amazed that we didn't have any of our trees lose branches or blow over. What about at your place?
We mentioned the other day how wet it was on the weekend. Well did you know that on Sunday it was the wettest August day on record for 20 years? Almost 3cm of rain fell on that day and that hadn't happened in August since 1999! That reminded us of how much we love reading about world records. Do you have a Guinness Book of Records at home or have you read one of the copies in our school library? We would love to hear the most amazing world record that you have read or can remember!
Well the winter weather was certainly back on the weekend. We managed to get outside a very short walk yesterday between the showers but most of the weekend we hunkered down in the lounge room not too far from the heater. What did you get up to on the weekend? Board games? Movies? Sleeping? Reading? Douglas wanted to mow the lawn but even when it wasn't raining when ground was so wet his feet just sank straight into it! What do you find to do when it is too cold and wet to go outside?
