Music Presentations

Over the past fortnight, students at home have prepared displays and a short oral presentation on a band or singer. Part of the presentation included a short sample of the artist’s music.

This week students presented their work to their classmates and Mr Langton. All presentations were of a very high standard and Mr Langton was suitably impressed.

Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge

The Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge is now open and Kismet Park is excited to be participating.

The Challenge is open to all Victorian children from birth to Year 10 in recognition of the importance of reading for literacy development. It is not a competition; but a personal challenge for children to read a set number of books by 8 September 2017.

Children from Prep to Year 2 are encouraged to read or ‘experience’ 30 books with their parents and teachers. Children from Year 3 to Year 10 are challenged to read 15 books.

All children who meet the Challenge will receive a certificate of achievement signed by the Victorian Premier.

To read the Premier’s letter to parents, view the booklists and for more information about the Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge, visit: www.education.vic.gov.au/prc

 

The Challenge is now open and will run until Friday 8 September 2017

Studyladder

 

Studyladder is a web based educational program designed by teachers. The program is curriculum based and covers Mathematics, Literacy as well as other subjects. Your child has been given a username and password which can be used to access Studyladder.

It is not compulsory for your child to use Studyladder at home, however regular access will help them reinforce what they have been taught in school. It will also help to build their confidence through practice.

Your child will NOT be able to chat with anyone using Studyladder. However, we still encourage you to supervise your child at all times when using the internet.

Simply go to www.studyladder.com.au and login using your child’s school username and password. The free version allows students to access 3 activities per day from home (it is optional for parents to upgrade if they wish to give their child unlimited home access).

If you have any questions please contact your child’s teacher
