Year 5/6 Newsletter
We are very excited to have begun our inter-school winter sports program and look forward to a fantastic season. It is great to see how enthusiastic all students are during games and training.
Miss Petruzio will be coaching the netball team, while Mrs Salt will be supervising the soccer team with assistance from parent volunteers.
The dates and locations are as follows:
Friday 27 May - Yuluma Primary School
Friday 3 June - home game
Friday 10 June - bye (training at school)
Friday 17 June - Newborough Primary School
Friday 24 June - Lightning Carnival (all day event, details to be advised)
We would love to see parent support at our games, so if you are available please come down and cheer on your child. It was fantastic to see so many parents supporting Scarborough Primary School at our last game.
Additional training sessions will be held in school on Tuesday lunchtimes for netball and Friday mornings 8-8.40am for soccer. Please ensure appropriate clothing and footwear are worn on these days and for games.
Students have selected a focus reading goal from the CAFE Reading Menu which will guide their reading and then meet with me for individual conferencing regarding their goal. During this conferencing, I will be listening to students read and will discuss their reading goal with them. The CAFE Reading Menu is glued into students' homework book to allow you to see your child's reading goal. Please ask them to share their reading goal with you.
Any other homework will be sent out on Connect and students will be informed about this at school.
Running on the oval will be completed on Tuesday morning from 8.30-8.50 with students starting as they arrive. We encourage you to be involved in the running with your children in you can. Students' laps will be recorded throughout the term with the intention that students will beat their record next year. It has been great to see not only students running in the morning, but parents as well. I myself was beaten by many of the boys in a running competition last week, well done boys!
From weeks 6 to 10 we will have Wake n' Shake in the undercover area. As with running, we encourage you to be involved in this activity with your children.
Please ensure you child is at school in time for morning fitness. Regular physical activity is of vital importance to children's health and primes them for a day of learning.
Crunch and Sip
Please ensure all fruit and vegetables are sent to school already cut and peeled, in a small container. Crunch and Sip is consumed during class time while students are completing activities, therefore, fruit and vegetables that require peeling and cutting interrupt valuable learning time. It is for this reason that whole, large pieces of fruit or vegetables and fruit or vegetables that require peeling will not be permitted in class. Thank you for your support with this item.
