Hello PK3.3 Parents!
T is for Turtle.
We continue with our ocean adventure this week and have been learning about Sea Turtles. We have been talking about their shells (carapace) and how they use flippers to swim and have a tail. They have no teeth and eat foods such as sea grass and jellyfish.
On Wednesday we got together with the whole of PK3 to measure how long a whale is. We all stood in a HUGE line and we were still not as long as the whale. Wow! We thought that was pretty amazing!
If you have not already, please send some momentos from a beach trip with your child. These can be photos, shells, coral, even a drawing they make of their trip. We love to share our stories during our morning circle time.
Don't forget to read the REMINDERS at the bottom of the newsletter. It contains important dates and information for you.

Tasting our produce with Ms Ingrid
We have begun making our recycled art for our show in April and can't wait for you to see our finished work. This week we have been very busy creating our own recycled fish using cardboard rolls.
Cira's Grandmother surprised us on Tuesday when she popped in to read Peter The Cat - I Love My White Shoes by James Dean. A super catchy story about a cat who steps in a whole heap of things, but is he bothered? "Goodness no!" As we say in K3.3 "It's all good!"
We had another surprise on Thursday when Cira's Mum stopped by to read us one of Cira's current favourite books, Frozen, An Amazing Snowman by Barbera Jean Hicks. A sweet rhyming story about seeing the good in everything around us.
A huge thank you to all our mystery readers. I think I can safely say both the children AND the readers have really enjoyed spending time together with a good book. If you have not already, I encourage you to come along and tell us a story.
And there was lots of this........
