Here is the video taken of the assembly this morning. It is not easy to stand on a stage in front of three hundred people but the student did a brilliant job. Unfortunately because of the Jungle Book set we had to project the slide show on to the walls of the theatre instead of behind the students. I have embedded the slide show along with the video so you are able to see both.
We have had a great time with book week so far; reading to our buddies, having mystery readers come to our classroom with their favourtie book and the dress-up parade this morning. During book week we read even more than we usually do and there are lots of activities to encourage everyone.
Please come a cheer on our children as they put all their efforts into helping their houses achieve their very best. The day promises to be a fun one and is a highlight on the elementary sports calendar.
Please remember to
– pack your child’s house uniform
– provide a full water bottle
– provide an additional afternoon snack
– pack sunscreen
– label everything
We look forward to your supportive smiles and positive cheers.
Next week, students will start their swimming unit and will be swimming in everyPE lesson for the next 6 weeks. May 4th will be the culminating event – ES Grades 2 and 3 Swim Meet. It will be an afternoon occasion with all students and homeroom teachers involved.
Please discuss with you children what swim gear they will need to bring (cap, goggles, one-piece swim suit and a towel) on PE days. Encourage them to label each item including their bag. This way we will be able to keep track of lost and found belongings.
