Welcome to Foundation at Nar Nar Goon!
Congratulations to all of our newest students at Nar Nar Goon Primary School for making such a wonderful start to their first year! Already we have been learning new letters and the teachers (Miss Stephenson and Miss Watt) are so impressed at how quickly and capably they have settled into class routines and school in general. Thankyou to all of the students around the playground who have helped make our new friends feel so welcome. Each day in Term One we will be learning a new focus sound in line with our whole school Soundwaves program. We will be bringing home our first take home books soon. A note will come home to explain how the home reading program operates.
We have enjoyed our first ART session with Sally Fay (FS) and Mr W (FW) and our first P.E. lesson with Mrs Deveny. See timetable below. We have also enjoyed our first session with our buddies. We will see them on Mondays at 2.45.
The children have enjoyed sharing time with the other Foundation class at different times throughout the day. Our inquiry topic this term will have us learning more about ourselves and our personal history. As part of our topic, an exciting incursion will have us taking a step back in time!
Our personal development program has had us talking about rules and consequences, school values and “The Golden Rule.” (Treat others as you would like them to treat you.)
Reminder to check satchels daily for any communication and if you have not done so already, please subscribe via the website to the newsletter. We also have an area on the homepage whereby you can notify the school of your child’s absence. If you fill in this form you do not need to write another note for the teacher. Another way we will communicate with families from the classroom is via the See-Saw app. A note regarding this will also be sent home soon.
We are looking forward to sharing more of our exciting journey and experiences throughout the year. As with all of the year levels and staff at Nar Nar Goon, our doors are always open to talk should the need arise.Jodie Watt and Rachael Stepehenson
