A warm welcome back from me, Mrs Tjitske (Chitska) Linthorne and 3TL's wonderful teacher aide, Mrs Karen Jeske. We hope you and your family had a peaceful and rewarding holiday break.
Learning opportunities for Term 2 have been planned to ensure that your child continues on their quest for new knowledge in a secure and supportive environment. I believe it is important that each student feels respected and valued as they collaboratively contribute to the learning process. This term we will:
* continue to develop our self-confidence
* take risks with our learning (tackle tasks without unnecessary doubt)
* be persistent
* be proud of who we are
* try our best
* keep our classroom and desks tidy
* use our best manners at all times
* be kind and caring to all those we meet
New! Spelling Words for Week 4 - you may have recently seen these words however, these are key words that students will use for their persuasive writing during Naplan next week.
Check out this newspaper article in the Noosa News about our excursion to Peregian Beach Park.
Class RepresentativeThank you to the lovely Lauren (Saashi's mum) who has kindly volunteered to be our class representative in 3EH. Lauren has sent an email to all parents who wish to be included on the 3EH parent contact list. If you would like to be part of this group, please reply to Lauren's email with your details.

Interim Reports were sent home at the end of last term. We will be working hard towards our goals in class and support at home would be greatly appreciated.
We will be doing many fun things this term which we would love for you to come and help. The first is our Reading to an Adult session where helpers will read with students on a one-to-one basis. These sessions will be held on a Monday and Thursday afternoon from 2:30-3:00pm and will begin in Week 2 of this term. If you would like to assist during these sessions, please place your name on the sign-up sheet outside our classroom during Week 1, come and see me or send me a quick email to let me know the date you would like to assist.
We will also run Literacy Groups on Mondays through to Thursdays from 8:50-9:20am. There is now a roster sign up sheet outside our classroom to volunteer to help during these times. Please feel free to sign up, come and see me or email me if you would like to help. Thank you to those lovely mums and dads who have already volunteerd. We appreciate your time and look forward to having you in our classroom!

New! Dates to Remember
It is expected that students read for a duration of 10-15 minutes per night. There is a section on the weekly homework grid which we ask parents to sign as their child completes their reading each night. Home readers will be changed by Mrs Jeske on a needs basis and she will keep a record of this. When your child requires their reader to be changed, please place the reader in the students' plastic wallet and in the home reader container near the front door.
