Did your child outgrow their old uniform tops and bottoms? Did your child graduate from Primary to Secondary? Do you have unwanted uniform items? Will your family be moving on from BISS Puxi to new adventures? Please consider donating all your unneeded BISS Puxi uniforms to the Second Hand Uniform Sale. All items can be dropped at the Primary or Secondary reception desks throughout the school year. All items need to be clean and in good condition, thanks for your support.

Please come and restock your children's Primary and Secondary uniforms at our sales on Thursday, September 7th from 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm in Primary Gallery.

Please remember to bring small cash and your own bag. All proceeds go to charity.

We need your help!!! If you would like to work on the Second Hand Uniform Sale project, please email Tracy at tracyly55@yahoo.com or wechat: tracyly55.  It only involves  four afternoons over the course of the school year.

LEARNING THEME: “ME!…”

We are nicely settled into our new classes and enjoying working with our friends, playing and learning everyday. We would now like to share more about ourselves with our teachers and friends, to help us learn some new words in English or extend our language as we describe our families. Please could you send a photo (email to the teacher is fine if this is easier) of your child and your family, or a recent trip you have been on, or simply anything exciting that has happened at home! We will encourage the children to notice the similarities and differences between families in the class. We can’t wait to learn more about each other!

KEY VOCABULARY

family, me, mum, dad, brother, sister, grandma, grandad, younger, older.

COMMUNICATION & LANGUAGE

We will be talking in small groups, pairs and the larger group. We will model what good listening looks like. This will give children who are new to English the opportunity to practise speaking with teachers and friends, using new words that we have learnt in a sentence. It will give children who are more confident in English or native speakers the opportunity to develop listening skills and work on questioning  e.g. ‘who is in your family?’ We will help them to recall the answer and share it in the group.

PERSONAL, SOCIAL & EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT

We are continuing to develop our relationships with our friends in class, as well as the adults we work with. We are sharing toys together and using our words to tell someone to ‘Stop! I don’t like it’ if we need to.

LITERACY/PHONICS

We will be continuing to build our phonics knowledge, by looking at different letter shapes and saying the sounds they make. This week we will be learning about the letters s a t p i n to see if we can blend them together to say longer words. How many words can you make? Help your child to say them in a sentence so they make sense.

MATHS

We will be continuing to count every day to 20, but we will also be looking at 2D shapes in our classrooms. We will practise drawing some shapes and making pictures with our favourite ones. I wonder if there are any shapes in your house?

MANDARIN

We will continue talking about ourselves, introducing our family.
