Good morning EY1!
We have conferences this week and we are looking forward to speaking and sharing with you. Thank you to all the parents who have signed up for a time and have responded to the questionnaire. They have been very helpful to our preparation for the conferences with you.
Last Week’s Experiences
Thank you to all the families who shared a photo or video from the weekend before that showed the children CARING FOR A LIVING THING. The children both enjoyed telling us more about their experience as well as listening to others’.
For THIS PAST WEEKEND, we have invited students to share something they have done showing how they cared about others. We look forward to seeing and hearing about all the caring things you have done.
“THE BIG GYM”
Last Tuesday, your child may have come home saying that they went to “the big gym.” Mr. Max organized for the children to have Tuesday’s PE class in the gym in the secondary building in preparation for our EY1 Sports Day next Friday, March 12. Unfortunately, parents still cannot be invited to these school events yet due to COVID safety measures. We promise we will take photos and videos.
“I CARE” and the LETTERS c / a / r / e
Last week, we talked a lot about how we can care for others. We also practiced reading and forming these four letters c / a / r / e and learning that these letters together spell “care” as in “I care.” We also shared two stories about caring:
The children got to practice holding small chalk pieces with “the pinch” to help them develop a proper pencil grip. See attached photo. You can remind them to use “the pinch” at home too.
Last week’s Fun Friday included opportunities for children to learn the different parts of a plant through various activities such as stamping, drawing, painting, etc. As a fun way to wrap up the week, we played with one of their favorites – THE PARACHUTE!
For those who are interested in extending the conversation about caring for others with their children, please have a look at the following article:
