It’s February already! Time sure does fly!
Thank you so much for coming to share in your child’s learning last Friday. The children loved sharing their creations and it makes the learning so much more meaningful with an audience. Here’s a few photos from the day.
This week we started our new unit- Where We Are In Place And Time. Please read the unit overview to see what we will be covering over the next 6 weeks.
We had our provocation for our new unit on Tuesday. You might have heard about it! The teachers all dressed up as significant people and created a ‘wax museum’. The children moved around the different classrooms and found out about each person, who they were and what they had done in their lives that was significant/important. Ask your child who was their favourite and what they remember.
We were super lucky to have 2 mystery readers on Wednesday. Jacob’s mum, Jutta came and read to us in German and our favourite Grandma, Baba, came back again to read us a very silly book called, ‘The Book With No Pictures’.
Next week is a very busy week. Here’s what you need to know:
Monday: Please bring in 4 photographs of significant events in your child’s life. You may email them and I can print them at school or send in photos if you have them. Some significant events might be, first time eating food, first steps, first tooth, brother or sister being born etc.
Tuesday: Is the 100th day of school. You child might like to create something that has 100 things/pieces to bring to school. It might be a necklace with 100 beads or a t-shirt with 100 tally marks on it, 100 lego pieces, 100 cotton balls…the ideas are endless. If you need further ideas there are a load in Pinterest. Just search 100 days of school ideas. Please note this is optional- not compulsory!
Wednesday: On Wednesday we will celebrate Global Play Day. The children are allowed to bring one toy to school. It must not require batteries or electricity. No devices. Some possible ideas might be board games, dolls, Legos, blocks, trucks, cars, racetracks, playing cards, empty cardboard boxes, markers, jigsaw puzzles, blankets (for forts), social games (charades, Pictionary, etc.) The games will be returned on Wednesday afternoon.
Wednesday is also the Snack Sale. G1 are required to bring in healthy snacks to be sold. Please see email that has already been sent out for guidelines.
Thursday: We will go on our field trip to see Ho Chi Minh, as part of our unit on significant people. Please remember good walking shoes, warm clothes and a snack and drink.
Phew! Thank you for supporting and helping your children be organised and ready for the week ahead.
It was great to see everyone at conferences today. I hope that you have a good understanding of where your child is at and what goals they are working on.
Have a relaxing weekend! Stay warm!!
