Winter has come! Please make sure your child has appropriate clothes especially on Thursday and Friday when they have ICT. Gloves, scarves, and warm hats will keep the germs away 😉
As you know together with Grade 4 and Ms. Jagoda (Grade 4 homeroom teacher) we’re organising Secret Santa. Each child was given a name of a chid (from grade 3 or 4) for whom they are supposed to buy and/or make a gift to be wrapped and labelled with that child’s name, and brought to school before next Wednesday, December 5th.
On Thursday, December 6th we’ll have a surprise visit from St. Nicholas and we’ll exchange gifts.
The value of the gifts cannot exceed 20zl!! You can check out the shops Flying Tiger – there are plenty of quite cheap games/toys etc so you will be able to find something within the budget. I’ve encouraged my students to also write nice notes, cards or wishes – these notes are free and the children will be happy to read positive words! ❤
Today, Ms. Marie, the kindergarden homeroom teacher together with her young students were very happy to receive grade 3 students who have prepared many, many stories. One student in particular, Avy was the lucky one invited to read her story but all the students, big and small,
asked and answered questions about the Hungarian Folk Tale The Diligent Girl and the Lazy Girl.
I cannot congratulate enough most of my students for all the effort they’re putting into their written work – they love love LOVE writing and this makes me so proud of them!! We have already committed to writing a diary starting January 1st so hopefully Santa will bring them diaries too 😉
My students are also very keen to perform in front of their peers as well so we’re preparing a very short, original script to be performed as a play for Christmas. They are very ambitious as they want to write another Christmas script based on Horrid Henry books’ characters.
Please send/bring next week any Santa/elf hat, angel costume, reindeer costume that you might have at home! We will try our best, that is all I can promise!
In Social Studies we are discussing Natural Resources and how they can be renewable and nonrenewable.
Speaking of that, I really want to commend Roger and his parents who have decided to send to school a lunch box and cutlery in order to save 20 plates and over 5 sets of plastic knives, forks and spoons that might otherwise end up in our oceans! I know it must not be easy but trust me, your effort is appreciated!
Our whole school is making an effort in order to reduce both the recyclable garbage and the non recyclable one so we are happy to see we are not alone in our efforts!
In Science we were talking about erosion and the role plants and trees have in keeping the soil in place – we have watched an experiment that we could do it at school as well but they said they would rather save the plastic we would need ❤ We’re starting Unit 2 next week!
In Math we’re still learning and practicing telling time (up to page 184) but I think they still need more practice before we’re moving to the next chapter: elapsed time.
I wish you a very enjoyable weekend!
