Grade 1 English and Science
Teacher Les Elliot
We have a great week coming up.
In English we will move on to our second sound. We will now start to look at the short i sound that we see in words like bin, pig and sit. If you think your child could use a little extra help with phonics I can recommend the website starfall.com because it is very interactive and the children are happy to watch it many times.
In science we will be doing our first experiment. We will be mixing powder paints to make different colours. I hope the children can listen and be careful. If they can they will bring home something beautiful – and still have clean shirts.

Grade 1 Art
Teacher Emily Barnes
Hello Parents and Teachers!
I’m the new primary Art Teacher at ABS and need your help! For future creative projects in the classroom I need to make a collection of recycled items. Could you please start collecting cardboard tubes, toilet roll tubes, cardboard boxes, plastic bottle lids, yogurt pots, drink cartons, straws, and plastic bottles… other items you think could be used are most welcome.
NO GLASS PLEASE.
Please make sure all items are clean before dropping them off at the art room or you can give them to me at morning assembly.
Thank you so much,
