On Friday 17th October Little Ossies joined the rest of the school in a Walkathon.
We dressed up in Cartoon Character costumes or came in our school uniform.
Can you guess who the different cartoon characters are?
For the Walkathon we had to walk outside of school and down the road to the Dunn’s Road park.
We walked to the park with our 4W buddies.
We had lots of helpers who came to the park with us. Some of the Mums and Dads who came did lots of walking with us. They also said lots of encouraging things as the Little Ossies walked around the Walkathon circuit. Some little sisters even came along for the day too.
Thank you to all the Little Ossies parents who were able to come and support us at the Walkathon.
When the Walkathon was over we walked back to school just in time for a quick snack and recess play.
After recess we worked out the number of laps which we had all done and recorded this in a book.
When we got back to school we recorded what we wore and the number of laps we did in the Walkathon in a special book.
The Walkathon was a very fun day!

These first few weeks back at school have been very busy with many things S.
We have been playing with s things, like sea creatures
We have pretended we are swimming under the sea with all the sea creatures and shells.
The sea creatures chat a lot to each other!
We have started to make some sea creatures to hang up around the room. We had to use scissors and staplers to make these.
First you had to draw the sea creature you wanted to make.
Then you had to staple the drawing to another piece of paper.
Then you had to cut around the sea creature shape and stuff some paper inside to make it look more like a real sea creature.
We are now in the process of painting our sea creatures so it looks like we are swimming under the sea in more of our classroom.
We have also been out and about in our school yard finding signs with the letter S on it.
We found signs with S at the beginning of a word.
We found signs with lots of the letter S on them.
We found signs with s in the middle of a word.
We found words with s at the end.
Can you recognise some of the places we found the letter S around our school?
On Thursday we had some special visitors who came in to visit us in class. They were Miss Griffiths’ nephews who Little Ossies have been wanting to meet for a while.
One of our special visitors playing the drums with us.
Our special visitors even had a turn diving down to the bottom of the sea with us too!
What a super fortnight so far!
