ANOTHER fantastic and festive week in EY3 full of cheerfulness, exploration, creation, and wonder!
It’s almost the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas is nearly here and we had a great time this week with festive activities and exchanging gifts. We sang Christmas songs, created Santas, snowflakes, Christmas trees, and donated gifts for children in need.
Christmas time is the perfect opportunity to write letters to Santa. We set up a ‘Letters to Santa’ Writing Center and students used writing prompts, paper, and envelopes to write to Santa. Students loved engaging with this space as they busily wrote letters and showcased their learning from this past semester.
We had fun practicing how to write capital letters and learned that we always start writing the letters in the top left corner with a big line down, then jumping back up to the starting corner.
We read Christmas stories, played games, and enjoyed playing outdoors. We had opportunities to use our creativity, problem-solving skills, and communication skills. Using our thinking skills we decided how we could make Samba the Bear a Christmas outfit using arts and crafts material.
We were all very excited that the festive season is approaching. On Tuesday and Friday, we had fun at our Christmas party where we played games, listened to music, shared gifts, and ate delicious party food. Thank you for the continued support and generosity when contributing to party food and gifts for both students and teachers. We are extremely grateful!
Jingle bells… Jingle bells… Jingle all the way! We sang Christmas songs with all the other students in the Primary School. The music of Christmas lifted our spirits and made us happy and excited for the holiday season!

Coming Up Next Term:
Campus Reopening in January!
A decision has been made to fully reopen the school on Monday, January 10, 2022. We appreciate the recent feedback from our KIS community which led to this outcome following extensive leadership discussions. We are confident that this is a safe and prudent path forward and good news for our students and community.
The Primary School will begin with half of its students on Jan. 10th, the other half on Jan. 11th, and all students on campus on Jan. 12th.
Remote learning continues on January 10th as an option for families but these accommodations will look different.
- Dec. 20th – Jan. 7th – December Break – NO SCHOOL
- Jan. 10th and Jan. 11th – First day of Term 2
- Jan.12th – All Students on Campus
Thank you for your continued support this term!
Wishing you all a fabulous, relaxing break and we will forward to seeing you all in the New Year.
