Week of 21st – 25th March

Dear Parents, 

Throughout the week we continued to explore and inquire during our exciting nature walks. Whilst exploring and learning, we collected various nature items. Students continued to use their observation, inquiry, and research skills to explore artefacts and objects that they found. Thursdays are the favourite day of the week as students enjoy gardening with Ms. Nok. Gardening provides the children with opportunities to learn about the life cycle process, by which plants are grown, as well as responsibility, caretaking, independence, and environmental awareness. The garden is a great place to cultivate a meaningful and fun learning experience for the EY3 students. 

Our mathematics focus this week continued to be measuring with non-standard units such as counting cubes or wooden blocks. Linking this to nature, we chose objects to measure then measured them using an object of choice. Following this, we will be moving on to measuring using standard units of measurement such as rulers and meter sticks. We enjoyed fun team games on house day where we used our thinking skills to order our numbers from smallest to largest. 

        

In the writing center, students used their imagination and creativity to express themselves when making books. Using a combination of pictures, letters, and words we made books and wrote stories. During circle time they enjoyed sharing these with their EY3 friends. 

                                 

It was a very exciting week as we celebrated not one but two birthdays in EY3. A big Happy Birthday to Tara and Tann who turned 6 this week. We hope you had a lovely time celebrating your special day with your friends and families and thank her family for the delicious cakes. 

        

We were lucky enough to have some pets visit us in school from Tao Hoo the dog, Emilia the hamster, and Cooper the dog. Thank you to Aleesha, Oskar, and Mr. Gerry for bringing their pets into school. 

A trip to the KIS Art Gallery sparked our curiosity and we shared our thoughts and wonders about all the amazing artwork that we saw.

                                     

Leading up to KIS Book Week 2022, we have been reading stories to the children in both English and Thai. We welcome any parents to share a story from their home country and if they’d like, in both their home language and English. It would be a special treat for the children and would help broaden their view of the world. Students can share a book that they created, it can be fiction or non-fiction, long or short, and in any language. The KIS Author Book Corner is waiting for books from our talented students.
