As the weather is beginning to change please make sure your child comes to school with suitable named outdoor clothes; a raincoat with a hood and rain boots, which they can change into to go outside when it is wet. Please label all items with your child’s name!
- Please remember that children need a labelled waterproof bag containing their swimming costume, swim hat and towel on our Friday swimming day. Goggles are optional. Arm bands or other swim aids are not needed.
- We are running the HSK examination on Saturday 12th November 2016. Registration is open to students, parents and friends who have an interest in taking this test. For more information, please kindly refer to the letter.
COMMUNICATION, LANGUAGE AND LITERACY
Last week our Makaton signs of the week were drink, water, eat and sleep. This week our signs will be: please, thank you and more. It would be fantastic if you could support us at home by teaching and practising these signs in your mother tongue.
Please, thank you, more
In our P.E sessions we are currently learning to ‘stop and go!’ The children will play games that help them look at the space around them, developing their spatial awareness and being careful around others.Last week we used the parachute, bouncing balls and beanbags like popcorn in a pan and working together to make sure they didn’t spill over onto the floor. This was tricky but the children used great control to ensure that they didn’t fall. We will continue to work on these and add another game called See-Saw Pull: From a sitting position, have children pull the parachute back and forth in a cooperative see-saw motion. We will do this activity while sining “Row row row your boat”.
In swimming we will continue to pratice our kicking by splashing, singing songs, playing circles games and having fun races in the pool. This week we will introduce the use of noodles as a basic swimming aid.
EXPRESSIVE ARTS AND DESIGN
The children have shown great interest in using natural materials this week. They look at the different natural and man-made materials and sort them, talk about where they come from and what they feel like to touch.
If you have any old or spare natural objects made from wood, metal or plastic that you could donate, please bring them into school. We will also look at different tewxtures and patterns of fabrics so any donations also appreciated.
Metal, plastic, rubber, wood, glass, transparent, trees, natural
UNDERSTANDING THE WORLD
The children have shown an interest in hidden treasure in the outside area, burying and finding toys, pretending to be pirates and using boats and ships in our water tray. We will investigate this area of interest further next week by supporting it with rhymes and stories about Pirates. We will extend this outside by using our climbing frame as a giant pirate ship and playing pirate games.
We have continued exploring wheels in our outdoor area- having a lot of fun rolling tyres of different sizes and transporting and carrying them from place to place. If you have any old tyres or wheels at home, these can be from toy cars that have broken, bikes, scooters etc for all age groups including adult bikes, please send them in! Much appreciated.
De peuters zitten helemaal op het juiste spoor deze week! We hebben al heel wat treinritjes achter de rug. Deze week oefenen we verder de plaatsbepaling in de trein. Zit jij graag vooraan in de trein of achteraan? Wie zit naast jou op de trein? We nemen ook een kijkje in het station en proberen te achterhalen wat de borden aan de muur betekenen.
De peuters zijn van harte welkom om onder begeleiding de` SDS Reismarkt ` bij te wonen maar zullen geen presentatie of act brengen . U kan samen met uw kind het werk van de oudere kinderen bewonderen. Er zullen ook foto`s van de activiteiten in de klas getoond worden.
