Shoebox Surprise!!!!!

Dear Parents, last week your child should have brought home a note explaining all about Christmas in a Shoebox. We are working together with 2H and sharing the excitement that packing a shoebox for a very special child brings.They chose groups and then chose the item that they would like to bring to put into the shoebox. On the back of the note gives you suggestions as to what you can put in the shoebox. The item that your child has chosen needs to be brought to school by next Friday (8th September) with their $2.50 to cover postage please.

In Science this week we not only enjoyed the beautiful sunshine but also went on a seed collecting adventure. We each had an egg carton to try and find 12 different seeds. With our partner we also tried to match the seed with the bush or tree that it came from and we took photos to help us identify each seed.

Next week we will try to classify the seeds that we have collected. The children took the activity very seriously and did a fabulous job finding so many different varieties.

I hope that you have had a chance to catch some of this week's sunshine and to replenish your Vitamin D.

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads in Blue Room. I hope you have a fabulous day and that your child shows and tells you how special you are to them.

Kind regards,
Paula Murphy.
