A swimming timetable came home inside your child’s reading notebook on Thursday. There are big changes happening to our Wednesday and Friday timetables so please talk these through with your child/ren (as we will be).Tips for Junior swimming:
â€¢Pack a bigger than normal lunch – the kids use a lot of energy walking to/from swimming plus a 30 min session.
â€¢Pack togs into a sturdy back pack with 2 straps. From past experience plastic bags, reusable bags and bags with stringy ties are too hard for juniors to work with. Even putting a plastic bag inside their school bag and they take their school is better.
â€¢NAME EVERYTHING! Every sock, pair of undies, singlet, togs, googles, shoes – name it all!!!
â€¢Ensure their black school shoes are sturdy enough to walk through grass/over some gravel and down a path in. Sneakers rather than open toed sandals.
Also we need parents to walk down and help with the changing. There are 2 slots:
Miss Liggett’s readers from 12-2:00pm and Miss Langridge/Mrs Siave’s readers from 12:30-2:30pm. Please let us know asap if you can help!
Any questions please see your kÅhanga teacher.
Yr 1/2 Fundamental Movement Spectacular – Thursday 23rd March
The Selwyn Sports Trust has teamed up with Lincoln University to implement a Yr 1/2 Fundamental Movement Spectacular. Similar to last years (and this year’s) sports spectacular, only catering for a different year group. The objective of this day, is to give children the opportunity to develop their fundamental movement skills essential to competently and confidently participate in a wide variety of physical activities, sports, and recreational pursuits. Research has shown that children who develop FMS are more likely to engage in sport and physical activity throughout adolescence and adulthood, leading to a healthier lifestyle. Fundamental movement skills are the basic building blocks for more complex and specialised movement skills and patterns. This event is targeted purely at year 1-2 students, this is due to the fact that year 1-2 students do not often get a chance to attend a sporting opportunities outside of school.
