Week ending 20th May

What a busy and exciting week we have had!! Swimming began this week and by all accounts everyone is having lots of fun and are learning to be fantastic swimmers. Don’t be suprised if your child gets very tired in the afternoons. They are swimming for 3 consecutive days!

We have been experiencing some terrific learning engagements in the classroom from our Unit of Inquiry How We Express Ourselves, and I have included an Animoto which gives a wonderful snapshot of the excitement and various activities the students have experienced.

 

Communication Folder.

Today your child will come home with a form in their communication folder regarding ES Language Options for Grade1-5 2016-17. Please read carefully and fill in the form and return it to school next week.

Show and Tell.

For our final week of Show and Tell children are asked to bring in a game that they enjoy playing and how they can express their thinking through the game. Please don’t have them bring in a very large game or an expensive game. No ipad apps are to be included either. 

Class Parties

You will find information on the K2 blog regarding our end of year K2 Dance, Talent Show and class party. We have a “Talent Show” in class as an example of an action from our UoI How We Express Ourselves. Students can perform  a dance, a song, play a musical instrument, read a poem or anything else which is a form of artistic expression. They can perform individually, with a partner of perhaps a “family” performance with your child. It is a great deal of fun and exciting to see the talents of K2AB. More information regarding the party next week
