Happy New Year and welcome back to school! I hope you all had a relaxing vacation and spent some wonderful time with friends and family.
On Monday we were lucky enough to be able to visit one of the high school strings classes. We went there to listen to the instruments and learn more about how sound is made. We’ve been thinking about the word vibration and what it means. We’ve talked about sound waves and how sound travels. Ask your child what they saw and learnt.
We continue to learn about time in 1A. The G1 expectation is that the children will be able to tell the time to half past and o’clock. Most of us have mastered this and some are even able to read the trickier times like 9:45 or 12:03 etc.
Today the music teachers ran an awesome assembly all about the Nutcracker. All of Discovery, K1 and K2 sang some songs and danced for us. Grade 1B did a ribbon dance. We will get our turn to perform in assembly later in the year. Here’s a quick video of 1B doing their dance.
This weekend I am participating in some professional development. It is a 4 day course so I will be out of the classroom on Monday and Tuesday as well. Ms Hue will be here with the children. I will still be on campus so can still receive emails if you need to be in contact.
Have a great weekend! Stay warm!
