Gathering Time Challenge
Just a reminder of our gathering time challenge that started today. Each morning there will be a task of two for you and your child to undertake during gathering time. Have a read of the small whiteboard as you walk in the door to see what it is each day.
These challenges give you and your child a chance to look around the room and really take notice of what we have on display.
Well done to Finn H and his Grandad for being the challenge champs today by being the first to notice the challenge!!!
Keeping Safe - Child Safe Curriculum
This week the PP children will be beginning the Keeping Safe lessons focusing on privacy and the body. The lessons will discuss:
1. Body awareness,
2. Parts of the body
3. Our whole body is private
4. Touching that is OK.
We will be reading a story called 'Everyone's got a bottom' and emphasising the fact that all parts of their body are private. I understand that the children may laugh and giggle when we talk about the anatomical names, but this is important for every child to know.
Recent research shows that knowing the anatomically correct language terms enhances children’s body image, self-confidence, and openness.
This is in conjunction with the Child Protection Curriculum which has been mandated in all schools in Western Australia.
Please find the lesson outline below for the Parts of the Body lesson and a link for the outline of the book if you feel you need to discuss this with your child.
Everyone's got a Bottom
Please email me if you have any questions.
A reminder that this Friday it is Book Week Dress up day. The theme is 'Reading is your super power'. At the assembly in the morning on Friday the children will be having a look at what everyone has come dressed as.
Home Reading and Sight Words
Please don't hesitate to see me or email me if you have any questions regarding your child's home reading or sight words.
It's great to see the kids getting into the home reading so much. If we can capitalise on their enthusiasm for reading now it will set them up for a successful reading future. This also goes for learning their sight words!!!!
