Throughout the term we noticed leaves were falling off the trees! So far this term that has been what our weekly art has been based on. We read a story called Leaf Trouble about a Squirrel who was worried about their home loosing all of it's leaves, which our first art project was based off. Since then we have completed 3 other leaf based art activities.
Great Attitude Faith!
Welcome to ACS
Here are some extra pictures from out visit to Princes Court on Monday.
Our next visit will be Monday 2nd July. Let Mrs Coe know if you'd like to join us and come watch :)
Wow! The term is going by so quickly!!
Over the last week we have had two new additions to Room 1.
Stephan and Emily Rose have both begun their learning journey at ACS and we also celebrated Stephan's 6th Birthday on Friday!
We have another child starting next week and other school visitor who will start at the beginning of Term 3. Keep your eyes peeled and welcome these new children and families to our school community!
On Monday, Rooms 1 and 2 went to Princes Court Rest Home to sing to the residents. The children had learnt and practiced 2 songs to preform. We then also had some time asking questions and talking to the residents. We then joined together and sung some classic tunes and nursery rhymes together which was enjoyed by all.
(as I was busy leading the singing and sorting the music there are a lack of photos - however hopefully I can get some off Miss Edzes and the parents that came to showcase a bit more of our visit!)
We have had 2 very busy and exciting days to start off our week!
After cross country at Dorie was postponed last week we decided to hold our very own cross country at ACS.
Here are some of the photos from our brave and persevering runners (some were even too fast to be in photos!)
Today we enjoyed wheels day with a variety of wheels based challenges and activities. As well as sitting in a variety of cars, talking to the owners and enjoying time riding our bikes and scooters.
Last Friday we read a story called Zoo Train and then based our art activity around it. We drew 4 different zoo animals by talking about the shapes that made up their bodies. Coloured in a train and drew around 2D shapes to make the carriages. We then used lines and dots to decorate them and remembered to add in wheels. Today these were on display for wheels day!
Also a special warm WELCOME to Stephan who had his first day with us in Room 1 today! What an exciting day for it!
We've been using numicon shapes and cover cards to make "take away" number sentences in Room 1 this week.
Happy Birthday Rhode! We hope you had a great day. Thank you for celebrating with us and sharing your amazing butterfly cake!
This afternoon we had a RAT visitor in with Room 1 and 2 for the afternoon. Harmony from Room 5 came over to tell us all about her pet and share what it needs and how she looks after it.
I hope you had a lovely day today with your family! Here are a few of the things your children love, appreciate and admire about you!
