This week in 1D – Friday June 7th, 2018

On Tuesday we were happy to welcome 2 special visitors to class – Liza and Olivia. They had travelled to Vietnam from South Africa with a very important message about rhinos. They explained that rhinos are facing extinction because of the mistaken belief that rhino horn has magical, medicinal properties. Vietnam is the largest consumer of rhino horn. Liza and Olivia asked the children to spread the message to “Say No to Rhino Horn!” Each child was given a book, written by Olivia and her sister when they were children to help spread the message.

In Maths this week we continued our learning about place value, using the 100 square, equivalencies using our scales, coding with Whiplash the robot, and 3D shapes.

On Thursday we celebrated our final lower-elementary assembly, with a special farewell for Dr Barder and a parting gift for each grade 1 child.

On Thursday the G1 “experts” buddied with a K2 friend to show them how the canteen works. All the 1D students were excellent buddies and mentors to their younger friends.


  • Moving up morning is tomorrow, Friday 8th June – you will receive a letter of introduction from your child’s new G2 teacher by the end of the day.
  • The G1 class party is next Tuesday.
  • The “Leavers’ Assembly” is next Tuesday at 13.15. You are welcome to join us then and stay for the afternoon, or meet us in class for our 1D farewell at 15.00. 
  • An open-morning for swimming is next Tuesday – see message below. 
Dear parents,
As we come to the end of the term, it is time to hold swimming’s ‘Open Mornings’ where parents can come to the pool and see their kids in action.
They will be held next Tuesday 12th June and Wednesday 13th June, during their normal timetabled swimming lesson.
Please send on the poster to your parents and if you have any questions let me know.
Kind regards,
