Grass/sprout heads activity day, Friday 20th October

October 8, 2017 § Leave a comment

Hi everyone,

This week Rebecca will be making grass/sprout heads with the children. It sounds like a lot of fun especially because these will start growing quickly in this lovely spring weather.  She asked me to request that if the mums have any old stockings then could they please bring them along. Also if anyone has a spare glue gun, that would come in handy too.

Hope to see you there.

Hi Everyone,

This week, John and Sam will give us a presentation on composting and worm farming.  If you want any of your children to start their own worm farm then please bring an empty ice cream container.  The worms and bedding for the worms will be provided, long with some handouts on care of worms and how to compost.

I hope you can make it along – it should be a great day.
See you there,

Christina

Hi Everyone,

It’s book week again, so it’s time to dress up as your favourite character and tell us a little about your favourite book.  It’s always fun to find out what someone  else is reading and discover why they like it so much.

Science activity day, Friday 11th August

August 5, 2017 § Leave a comment

Hi everyone.

This week is national science week. We thought it would be a great idea if each family could bring something that is science related and give a short explanation about it. This could be an experiment they conducted, something they have made, observed or learnt about.

 

 

 

This should be very interesting day

God Bless,

Christina

Board games day, July 28, 2017

Hi everyone,

The weather has been so cold lately that this week we  have decided to run a board games day. We all know how much homeschoolers like chess but I’m sure there are other  board games they like too! Bring your own board game and have some fun with your friends.

 

 

 

I hope to see you there.

God Bless,
Christina

Curriculum materials display (Seton), Friday April 21

April 17, 2017 § Leave a comment

Happy Easter everyone!  A big thanks to Celia and Bernadette for running the last activity. The intricacy of the detail in the stain glass windows we made, and the thoroughness of preparation that they put in to make the activity day run smoothly was remarkable.

For next Friday’s activity day, Kelly has again invited the Australian distributor for the ‘Seton Home Study School’ curriculum, to show us a selection of Seton materials. We will also be given a talk by a lady who would like to share her phonics program with us.

Reminder: There will be council work going on in the hall’s carpark. This work will be carried out for a few weeks while we are at the hall.  The children will not be permitted to play out side due to safety issues. You are quite welcome to bring some indoor activities to keep your children occupied. Alternatively you may wish to take your children to the nearby park.

Looking forward to seeing you all there.

God Bless,

Christina

Stained glass window craft activity, Friday March 24th

March 20, 2017 § Leave a comment

Hi Everyone,

The next activity will be a stained-glass-window craft with the Lenten theme, “Waiting for the Risen Christ“.  The activity will be run by Celia and her daughter, Bernadette.

The children will cut designs out of black card, or choose a ready-made design (more suited to younger children) and fill in the empty spaces with the beautiful glowing colours of stained-glass windows.  Please bring a glue stick and scissors.  Keep in mind that sharp scissors are necessary, so each design should be cut by an adult or older child.

As we move to Laetare Sunday (the 4th Sunday of Lent) our windows will serve to remind us of the rapidly ending period of penance!

BYO glue stick and scissors!

 

I hope you can join us.

God bless, Christina
