October 16th – 20th

Hi Kinder Families,

We had a busy week in the classroom! The students have been listening to stories about the Gingerbread Man and have been doing lots of activities based on the story, including writing how to catch one, patterning gumdrops and a Gingerbread hunt around the school!

Our Feature Image:

Here we are with our decorated Gingerbread cookies after they ran away from us and sent us on an adventure around the school! It was so fun meeting all the teachers and staff!
