In the Event of an Emergency Closure
Emergency closures can happen any time throughout the academic year with little or no advanced warning. In the event of an emergency school closure, the safety and well being of all community members is a priority. It is recognized that emergency closure only happens during crisis and that format, responses and staff/student availability will depend on the reason for closure.
The school will endeavor to provide the most up to date in formation for all families in relation to the emergency situation/closure. In the event of a closure, the school will provide opportunities for home learning to minimize the impact the closure may have on student’s learning.
School Closure – May 2nd 2019
Hello EY1 Families!
Last week we started exploring our new unit “Play”. We have been talking about how play extends ideas, develops creativity and supports social interaction. We worked together to make a class definition of what play is.
We named the different types of play as:
- Dramatic Play
- Playing through Art
- Outdoor Play (Gross Motor)
- Play-dough/Sensory Play
- Games with Rules
We would like parents to engage in play with their child in 2 or more ways listed above. Please document your child’s play by sending us pictures/video of the play taking place. For example, play can be in your house doing art projects, swimming in the pool, or playing dress up with your child. Get creative!!
Here are some links to some games and recipes (baking cookies for your lovely teachers who are at work today can also count as play 555 … jk/njk we also like sandwiches and pad kapao gai lat kai dao)
(The kids really like these yoga story videos … and so do teachers!)
We will be available to answer any questions you may have during school hours. Hope to see you all soon!
We are sending home a packet for the children to work on during the emergency closure. Please complete and return when school opens.
Your child has been assigned a letter. Please find a material that can be glued onto the letter that corresponds to the letter. Your child should cut out the letter and glue the material on. Examples: Sand for S, Tinfoil for T, Paper for P, etc. If you absolutely can’t come up with a material, you may find something that corresponds online and print it out and glue it.
If you did not receive a packet because your child was absent or is half day, please use the letter assigned below, have your child draw the letter on A4 paper, and glue the material onto the paper.
We are sending home a unit related book. Please read it with your child, discuss the content, and have your child draw a picture of what they learned. If you do not have a book, please
Please visit our Library Web Page through the KIS portal and use our online resource activities.
Please read with your child daily.
Teach your child the game of tic-tac-toe and play with them daily.
Count 100 small objects and put into a ziplock bag.
Find three AB or ABC patterns in your home and discuss how it repeats and what would come next.
Ask your child to sing the days of the week song.
Our 100th Day and Chinese New Year Party will be postponed.
