RED (Read Every Day) Day was celebrated yesterday and will be bigger and better on Thursday when we continue to celebrate Literacy and Numeracy week. This is a chance for at home to create some wonderful memories as you spend some quality time with your child. There are many board games, card games and even large outdoor games that reinforce the concepts of counting, direction and grouping sets together.
Reading together also provides a great opportunity to spend time with your child, to be creative, expressive and read some wonderfully imaginative stories together, as well as gather facts about all sorts of things that interest your family and child.
Dads and kids: save the date - 4 September
We would love to see all of our "dads and kids" celebrate Fathers Day at a special breakfast at school. Some children may choose to bring their grandfather or uncle or a special person in their life - all will be welcome.
Mr Rutter and Mr Hounsell have already volunteered to help Wade's dad and Hudson's dad cook, but we will be chasing some more volunteers to help out on the morning. Men get your aprons ready!
Please see our P&C section of the Scoop for more details.
