Hi Grade Prep/One and Grownups, 

Welcome to week 4 Grade prep and One,

Below are the learning tasks for this week, Week 4. Each morning I will pop up a video that briefly outlines the days learning for you to watch before we meet online. That will free up our 10.30am Webex meetings for sharing learning and asking questions. On some days I will be working with small groups during our meetings. This means I might ask the preps to stay in the meeting and the ones to leave or come back on later, or vice versa.

As of Monday last week, if your child is not present in our meetings, they will be marked absent on the roll.

Some extra worksheets are pdf linked below, but please use workbooks to complete tasks and paste printed sheets into scrapbooks so we don't misplace anything along the way. I hope you are finding that you are printing less at home.

Your child's Reading Eggs, Mathletics and Soundwavesonline passwords are pasted into the front of their reading diaries. Students have unlimited access to these sites at anytime and they are a great addition to student learning. Please email the school if you need another copy of these.

Sunshine Online can now be used for home reading (don't forget to continue filling our your home reading diaries) as we will now be using Key Links Digital for reading Tuesday-Friday. (Instructions for Key Links Digital are in the previous newsletter, which is on Compass).

Here is my timetable of availability. 

​​​​​​​​​​​As always please feel free to email me at school if you have any questions, queries and or concerns.

​​​​​​​​​​Ms D
