The children have all settled back into kinder after the term break and were eager to talk about what they did in the holidays. We welcome Kate Bartlett who will be the teacher for the Possums on Wednesday afternoons and Fridays.
This week the children have been creating pictures using small blocks to stamp geometric shapes onto paper, inspired by the work of artist Paul Klee. The children are also developing their skills using scissors as they cut out plant and animal pictures before pasting them in their correct categories onto paper. The children are always interested in science and this week we are exploring the surface tension of water by counting how many drops can be placed on different coins.
As one of Eastmont’s sustainability initiatives we have begun a waste free lunch challenge on Tuesday and Wednesdays for the rest of the year. Thank you for supporting your child’s participation in our efforts to “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle”.
Thank you also to all the families who came and helped at the working bee before the start of term. It's always nice to come back to a tidy outdoor area and sparkling clean windows.
Friday 16th August and Monday 19th August at 10am Little Woodworkers will be visiting for an incursion. We will need some parents/grandparents to help between 10.30-11.30am. If you able to assist please add your name to the list in the foyer.
Please feel free to add comments and/or suggestions to the program next to the sign-in book or speak to Sonya or Kate.
