September 30th, 2019
Welcome everyone to Mrs. Browne’s Nursery Class!
I was thrilled to meet my adorable students and their parents.
The children spent the first two weeks getting to know me, each other, the classroom, our class pets, Dory and Tommy, our routines, our class rules , my parent helpers and just understanding why they are in school and all the great things that they will be learning.
We made guardian angels and crosses and we read a poem about our first mark in school and did our hand prints. I have been teaching your children how to make the sign of the cross and our class prayers. They are doing an amazing job. I am really proud of them. We celebrated Camilla’s birthday on the 27th Thank you Mr & Mrs Tan for the lovely birthday treats and celebrating with us. We celebrated Johnny Appleseed’s birthday on the 26th and we had an apple day. We had apples for snacktime, along with apple juice and a special Johnny Appleseed gift to take home, along with our Johnny Appleseed hats and apple handprints keepsake crafts.
