Wow! It’s crazy to think that Term 4 is almost here. It is sad for us to have only one term left with some of you. We are all very thankful for you all of our wonderful families and thank you for entrusting us with your beautiful children.
Term 3 has provided so many rich learning experiences for your children. Some of the highlights have been our book week, watching the chicken’s hatch and deepening our relationships with each other. Our curriculum focus for term 3 provided experiences in foundational learning areas such as literacy and mathematical concepts. I hope you enjoyed your child’s term 3 learning email which focused on these areas?
Term 4 learning experiences will provide individualised children with skills for kindergarten or returning to preschool in 2017. Please chat to your teacher regarding school orientation if you have any concerns. These times can be very stressful for your child, yourself and your family. We would love to help in any way we can. You are welcome to bring your child after orientation or pick up early depending on the time. Local schools will ask our teachers for a transition to school form to be completed. We will complete the required documents and attached our midyear learning summary of your child for them.
Throughout term 4 we will be offering many opportunities for your child to develop and practice skills required for formal schooling or returning to preschool.
