Over the past few week Constable Care has visited both Kindy groups. He came to teach us about road safety. We learned about ways to keep safe when coming to school either on foot, in the car or on a bike. The Kindies now all know to Stop, Look, Listen and Think before we cross the road and to always walk with a responsible adult that we know.

Thank you to all the dads, mums, grandpas and uncles who made it to our Gentlemen's Afternoon Activity Session. It was wonderful to see you and your child having so much fun and enjoying spending time together. I do hope your children continued to spoil you over the weekend.

Last week we celebrated book week and our love of books by dressing up as book characters. We also had a real life author, Elaine Forrestal, visit us. We have been reading some of her stories over the last few weeks during library time. Some of the titles we have read include Miss Llewellyn Jones and Miss Llewellyn Jones Goes to Town. Elaine spoke to us about what it was like to be an author and write stories and she assisted us in acting out some of her stories. The Kindy children also brought their favourite story to school and got to share it with the class. To finish off a fantastic week, a librarian came to visit and delivered us better beginnings book bags to take home. Happy reading!

You're sure of a big surprise.
If you go down to the woods today
You'd better go in disguise!
Because today's the day the
The little Teddy Bears are having
A lovely time today.
This Term our Talk 4 Writing text is We're Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen.
To begin our learning journey we had a teddy bears' picnic. The children brought their teddies to school and we played games with them including teddy races, duck, duck, bear and teddy bear parachute rides. We also made some teddy toast, it was delicious.

You can't catch me I'm The Lamington Man!
Over the past two weeks Room 4 have been innovating The Three Little Pigs story by changing the characters in the story. They have created some beautiful stories that are hanging in the class. The titles range from The Three Little Fairies and the Big Bad Witch to The Three Little Autobots and the Big Bad Dinosaur.
To gain inspiration for our stories we read The Lamington Man, an innovated version of The Gingerbread Man. We then baked our own lamington men and just as they did in the story, our lamington men ran away! We had to search the school, which coincidentally allowed us to view the completed mosaics we had worked on. Finally, we found the lamington men in block four where group 1 had the opportunity to visit their buddies in room 14. We were sure to eat them quickly so they didn't run away again. The lamington men were delicious!
