You should have all received a Parent Teacher Interview note in your child’s blue satchel last week, but if not here are the details for how to book an appointment:
Once logged in you in you will see your children on the page. From there you can simply click the ‘Book Parent Teacher Interview‘ button underneath each child.
If you are unsure about any processes using Compass please feel free to attend free ten-minute tutorial sessions in the staff room (front office entry) at 9:05am and 3:00pm every day. Just bring along your login details and we can help you to get up and running!
On Tuesday we were lucky enough to have a visit from Ditto. Ditto is from Bravehearts and he teaches us all about being safe, and what it means to have yes feelings and no feelings.
He also taught us that it is okay to say “Stop!” to someone if they are doing something that makes us feel unsure or unsafe.
After our visit from Ditto we all thought of 5 people that we can trust if we ever need to run and tell an adult something important.
Thanks for visiting, Ditto!
This week at school we have started a unit on Shapes.
We are learning all about two dimensional shapes such as squares, triangles, rectangles and circles.
During investigations this morning we decided to make some shapes using cardboard and wool. It was a great chance for us to practice our ‘fine motor skills’, something which we are constantly developing in JKS. Once the shapes were made Miss Sutherland hung them up, and they look awesome!
To make the shapes we wrapped wool around and around the pieces of cardboard.
We kept wrapping until you couldn’t see the cardboard anymore.
Now that we’ve got the hang of squares and rectangles we’re going to have a go at some trickier shapes like triangles and circles!
At the beginning of the year each child is given a blue satchel.
This satchel has a few different jobs:
- All books that your child brings home must be transported inside the satchel (library books can be transported in a separate library bag)
- Any notes or other communication between teachers and parents will be kept inside the satchel. Please check inside each night to see if there is anything important inside.
- Any work students are bringing home will go inside satchels.
- The blue satchel must come to school every morning and go home every night.
Please encourage your child to become responsible when it comes to their blue satchel. They should be in charge of making sure the correct things go in and out of their satchel, and it should be their job to remember to bring it to school and take it home every day.
Every morning in JKS at 8:45am we love to sit and read. It helps us get ready for a day of learning and it’s a lovely way to start the day. Reading in the morning is even better when we have lots of parents to read to! If you are available any morning please come in and read with us. The note below has some suggestions for when you come in to help with reading.
Thank you in advance for your wonderful help!
