Homework: Give spelling test to parent to sign.


Parents, I am still missing some comfort kits. Please send it to school as soon as possible.  Also to ensure we continue to have no issues, please ensure your child comes to school with their hair tied.  Thank you for your support in this matter.


In the Language Arts sections below, I have uploaded all the spelling words for this first term.

This year, we will make time  throughout the day to be still and be with God.  This first term we will be deliberate in making the sign of the cross and praying Hail Mary, Our Father and Glory Be.  We will also join the rest of the students  in participating in school Masses,  praying the Angelus and the grace before meal.


Language Arts

It is always a good idea to read, write and share stories.  This term we will be learning to read words with short vowel sounds, spell phonetic words and some high frequency words.  We will also be working on writing our letters properly and with greater mastery.  There will also be a reading page to practice as well as spelling homework.  Spelling Homework Sheet

This term, we will be working on knowing our numbers and patterns.

We will be counting daily to 100 by tens and ones.  We are also adding doubles orally (o+0=0, 1+1=2, 2+2=4,……up to 10+10=20).  The students are also showing number recognition and one to one correspondence for numbers 0 – 30.  In October, we will start addition.  We will be adding one, two and three (6+1, 1+5, 6+2, 2+5, 6+3, 3+5).




This term, we are learning about our environment by observing the changes in our weather and how it affects our daily lives.



This term, we will learn about our community and know our responsibilities within our school community and God’s greater community. We will also listen to Aboriginal stories, look at art work and compare them to other stories and art works.




Please have gym strip (shorts and shirt) in school by September 19, 2018.  Our P.E. days are on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays so the students need to make sure they have their gym strip either in a bag so they can change into it or underneath their uniform.
