We had a lovely day today- first we wrote about Stanley’s adventures, read some more emails sent to us, then we had a picnic outside and we played games (and had a little party) in the afternoon. Thanks to the children in the class for a fantastic year- you are all super and I’ve enjoyed teaching you all! Thanks to the class parents for all your help and support throughout the year, it’s been a great year. Today is Christian’s birthday so a very happy birthday to him!



It’s our last week in first class! June 27, 2011

The year has passed so quickly and we are busy getting organised for the holidays. The children are taking home some of their books and copies each night this week. Please empty your school bag so that you can carry home more books each day. A big thank you to everyone who sent in emails for our Flat Stanley project. We will do a recap of all the places Stanley went during the week. As you know, we get our holidays this Thursday however Wednesday is our last day together. We will be having an end of year party Wednesday afternoon. The children can bring in a DVD/ small game (cards, board game etc…) if they wish. They do not need to bring in treats as I’ll have some in the classroom. It’ll be a fun and sad day as we say goodbye to 1st class!
