WELCOME TO TERM 4, 2017

 

We have been doing a lot of reflection over the past three terms and are so proud of how much our students are learning and growing in their confidence. This term we are excited to build on our learning as well as learn about some completely new concepts.  We hope everyone had a safe and relaxing holiday and are now refreshed for a big term of learning. 

 

 

IMPORTANT REMINDERS

 

 

SIGNING IN/OUT AT THE OFFICE 

 

Please note that all visitors (including Parent Helpers) are required to sign in and out at the Office. This is a legal requirement and ensures that all people are accounted for in the case of an emergency.  The morning and afternoon rolls are taken daily at 9:00am and 1:50pm and are also a legal document indicating student attendance. If your child arrives late or is to be picked up early, please sign them in/out before coming to the classroom. 

 

 

 

YOU CAN DO IT 

 

This term we will begin by revising what we learned about Confidence, Getting Along and Organisation. Following this, our main focus will be on developing our “Resilienceand "Persistence" skills. We will explore Resilience and how we can keep calm and bounce back when something "bad" happens, making sure we don't get extremely angry, down or worriedWe will also explore Persistence, where we will focus on trying our best and not giving up.  

 

 

 

SHOW AND TELL 

 

There will be no schedule for show and tell this term as we will be building our speaking and listening skills during classroom discussions, home school learning tasks and community circles. 

 

 

 

HATS 

 

A friendly reminder that Killara is a SunSmart school. During Terms 4 and 1, students are required to wear a sun smart hat during each play outside.
