Thank you so much to our PnF for organizing this event. Due to lockdown, we have postponed the sleepover until week two of term 3. And I’d really like to have a production meeting with parents interested in helping out with costumes, sets etc.
As our first day of official remote learning started, I was back to my usual 2020 morning – which was sitting on the verandah with my thermometer and a clipboard, waiting for the arrivals.
Join us for an Open Day on Saturday, 19 June 2021 from 10AM to 12PM. Come and see Village School students in action! They’re building cubbies, leading and riding horses, cooking, designing, experimenting, singing, and playing with mud, glorious mud!
Thank you to those parents who made appointments to speak with our school review team last week. And all our classes had a session this week with our St John’s ambulance representative.
Options have been running for three weeks now and it’s lovely to move around the school during this time, watching the children all happily focused on their chosen activity. The activities this term are Archery, Board Games, Bush Walking, Ceramics, Chess, Coding, Jewellery Making, Origami, Pony Care, Soccer and Yoga.
Village School is proud to be growing our very own forest to help stop the decline in Australia’s threatened wildlife, as part of the WOODiWiLD / Jane Goodall Roots & Shoots initiative. Buy a tree today and help us grow a forest.
It’s only been two weeks so far, but already the preps are starting to develop tennis skills and most of them are keeping focused for almost the whole hour. And the older students explored what happens when you put mentos in coke.
The younger children are having a visit from the police, Melissa’s and Laura’s groups visited the local post office and the older children are about to start writing to pen friends.
As usual, we entrust this activity to our senior students. Six different children from year 5 and 6 led the proceedings and this year they increased the number of poems written about the war and ANZAC Day, along with music, handmade wreaths and a minute of silence.
All of the groups will be studying the Community theme this term and each home group will look at it through a different lens, from community organisations such as the Fire Brigade etc all the way through to the older students who will look at our parliamentary system and elections.
