My Grade Ones, please stay healthy and safe! I miss you all. I hope to see you soon.
Lent is a time we prepare our hearts for Jesus. Lenten boxes and a seminarian card went home today. For these forty days Lent, please help your child prepare for the Lord’s coming by saying a prayer with them.
Homework: No homework. It is always a good idea to work on Speech Arts poems, storytelling and Bible Readings . Also, it is always good to pray for your seminarian especially during this Lenten Season.
Parents, if you click on the field trips for 2019-20 on the right, you will see the list of field trips for the year. Added to that list are Wednesday, December 4th, 2019 to Genesis Theatre to see Frozen Jr. and Wednesday, April 15th, 2020; we will be attending the 8:00am Mass at St. Joseph’s Parish.
Parents: We have gym on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Students need to wear their uniform and have their gym strip in their backpack. Another option, the students can wear their gym strip under their uniform.
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. Additionally, we will listen to bible stories and learn about the rosary.
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.
This term, we will be working on knowing our numbers to 100 and writing our numbers correctly from 0 to 20. We will also be working on skip counting and orally adding doubles (0+0=0. 1+1-2.2+2=4,…….10+10=20). We will also learn about patterns – constructing, recognizing and naming them.
This term, we are learning about matter, its properties and usefulness. We will also discuss living things and how its behaviours adapt to survive in their environment..
This term, we will learn about our community and know our roles, rights and responsibilities within our school community and God’s greater community. We will discuss where we belong within our communities – our family, our classroom, our school, our teams. We will also listen to Aboriginal stories, look at art work and compare them to other stories and art works. Finally, we will also be learning about natural and human made features in our environment.
Please have gym strip (shorts and shirt) in school by September 25, 2019. 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.
