This week K2C enjoyed exploring shapes.

Sadly, the time has come to say ‘auf wiedersehen’ to our classmate Basti. Today was his last day at UNIS. I’d also like to say a very big thank you to his Mum, Carmen for being our K2C parent.

In class, K2C have enjoyed ‘Raz Kids’ reading on the iPad. I have sent home his/her password incase your child would like to access Raz-Kids over the holiday.

Login Instructions:

  • Step 1: Go to www.kidsa-z.com
  • Step 2: Enter or choose the teacher’s username, cmatthewsp
  • Step 3: Your child finds his or her username on the class chart
  • Step 4: Your child enters his or her password (Look in your child’s folder)

Finally, I wish you and your family a very happy and safe holiday and I look forward to seeing you in January 2019 !

7th December

Yes. It is December already! It is hard to believe, we have just one more week of school until the Winter Holiday ( or summer if you are from the southern hemisphere like me!)

You probably know I was in Hong Kong on Monday and Tuesday, collaborating with teachers from six international schools. (So this will be a short blog post!)

K2C engineers and mathematicians are becoming very confident and capable observers of shapes in the environment. This week they have done a lot of exploring, describing and sorting shapes and objects in the environment.

Ask your child to tell you about The Greedy Triangle story!

Today K2C engineers enjoyed the team time NO TAPE challenge of building a strong structure. ( Following on from the SDG week, we tried to reuse junk and not waste tape) Here’s a video of the process. Teams were encouraged to reflect on their ability to problem solve, work as a team and be responsible for cleaning their own mess!

 

Looking ahead

  • Next week is Basti’s last week at UNIS. He is moving to Switzerland. ( Your child might like to write him a special goodbye message and put it in our class post box!)
  • Dec 15th- Jan 6th Winter Break – Offices Open Weekdays/ No Classes or Activities
