1/2A - Mrs Withford

Welcome to 1/2A with Mrs Withford!

1/2A has had a great start to the year and have worked really hard to follow the school expectations of respect. It is pleasing to see the positive attitude that they have towards their work and to each other. I am sure this year will be a fun and rewarding year for all of us.

Sports Day – Sports day is on a Wednesday. Students are required to wear their sports uniform, have their school hat and a drink bottle.

Library Day – Every Thursday, 1/2A will have Library from 11:45-12:45. They are encouraged to borrow books of interest each week as they are read in class independently to form a deeper love for reading. Library times may change during the year and parents and children will be notified of this if it happens.

CAPA– Every Tuesday 1/2A will have CAPA with Mrs Kelly Lukic. Semester 1 will focus on dance and drama and semester 2 will focus on art appreciation and music.

Homework – Students are encouraged to use the online decodable readers or to borrow home readers on a Friday from the home reading hub. Students also have access to Reading Eggs and Mathletics and are encouraged to complete activities that are posted for the weeks focus. Year 1 students also have everyday words to revise at home.

Crunch and Sip - Each morning we have crunch and sip at around 10:20 am. Please include a piece of fruit that is easy to eat in your child’s lunch box each day.

Parent Communication - Open communication between us is very important. Should you have any queries regarding your child, please send me an email through the school email address Berowra-p.school@det.nsw.edu.au . As I am teaching, attending meetings and have other duties throughout the school day, I may take 24 - 48 hours to respond.

Seesaw – 1/2A use Seesaw in class time not only for their technology skills through educational tasks, but to show their families what they are learning about during the day. They upload images and activities that they have been doing in class time which encourages families to participate in the learning journey.

I am really looking forward to an exciting year of learning with 1/2A.

Mrs Withford
