This week we have farewelled Liz Tomas as she will soon be welcoming twins into her family. We wish her all the best and can’t wait to meet her babies. Next term Cherie Redwood will be the Grevillea Room teacher. Liz and Cherie have met several times to ensure the change for the children will be a smooth transition.

In Week 1 of Term 4 we will be farewelling Kate Wise. Kate has recently accepted a fulltime position in a child care centre. Alice Meredith whom has been relieving for us across the ELC will replace Kate in the Banksia Room.

Co-Curricular Term 4

We are pleased to again offer two activities in Term 4.

Dance: Reception (Ms. Walsh) to Year 5
Soccer Skills Sessions: Years 1 to 5

Dance will be run by the talented teachers in Year 1 & 2, Miss Michelle Williams and Mrs Alana Iannazzo. Both teachers have been dancing since the age of three and have had experience in many different dance styles. Students will learn different sequences of movements and dance routines in Modern and Funk.

Soccer Skills sessions will also be held in Term 4. Matt Rossiter and Ilke Onur (Year 1 parents) have kindly offered their services and we thank them for their time. Students will learn the skills and rules of soccer and play mini soccer games. This is excellent preparation for Annesley fielding soccer teams in the Southern District Junior Winter Competition in Term 2 & 3, 2018.

In Term 4, the co-curricular program will be held on Wednesday afternoons from 3.30-4.30pm for four weeks, beginning in Week 2.

Early Years Learning

Eucalypt Room
What a busy and exciting term we have had in the Eucalypt room. As a part of our Term 3 Unit of Inquiry ‘Life is a cycle of change’ and our whole year inquiry ‘Balance in life creates a strong sense of wellbeing’ the students have had opportunities to look after baby chickens, meet Paige’s baby brother, participate in a visit from Miss Fosdike’s dad the Policeman and engage in a Yoga Intelligence program. Yoga has been an important part of our wellbeing inquiry and is now imbedded into the student’s relaxation time. Not only do the Eucalypt students enjoy the movement and poses they learn in Yoga, they enjoy telling stories and expressing their emotions in a healthy way. Yoga is helping the students to practice being calm, enhancing their concentration and confidence.
