As we almost come to the end of our exciting year in EY3, students enjoyed another busy and fun-filled week of learning with their friends. Our literacy engagements continue to be popular at centre time, students used their imagination and creativity to express themselves. Using a combination of pictures, letters, and words we made books, wrote stories and wrote weekend recounts. During circle time, students used their communication skills to discuss what they did at the weekend. We exchanged our ideas and then wrote words and sentences together through shared writing. Shared writing is a great way to fire up children’s imagination, collaborating on ideas and borrowing from others provides children with a much richer vocabulary to use when writing. It also gives children a model of what they could include when they are in the writing centre, in terms of content, spelling, punctuation and grammar. We are very proud to see significant writing and reading progress made across our EY3 community. In our art centre, we created letters and decided to write a special farewell message for Ms June.
We had a lovely surprise guest on Tuesday as Ms Sian came to EY3 to read the story ‘Baa Baa Smart Sheep’ by Mark and Rowan Somerset and ‘The Book with No Pictures’ by BJ Novak. Ms Sian spoke about the importance of mindfulness and students enjoyed learning about meditation and mindfulness skills which will increase their well-being and enable them to meet the stresses of the world with presence, self-compassion, and openness. Thank you, Ms Sian!
It was a very exciting week as we celebrated Nene’s birthday. We hope you had a lovely time celebrating your special day with your friends and a big thank you for the delicious chocolate cakes. Happy 6th Birthday Nene!
We had the privilege of watching an amazing A Capella Performance with The Harvard Kroks and Radcliffe Pitches who have delighted audiences around the globe with their unique blend of Acappella harmony and humour. With over thirty albums, they tour the world each year and have performed for guests such as King Bhumibol, President Mukherjee of India, Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Ella Fitzgerald, and Aga Khan.
