- Special wedding Clothes: Please send your child to school already wearing their special wedding outfit on Wednesday 24 May. We won’t have time to change before the wedding ceremony. Please put your child’s school uniform in your child’s bag so that they can change into it after the wedding has finished.
- Outside clothing : As the weather changes and becomes warmer please do make sure your child has a named sunhat, and when appropriate apply sun cream before coming to school. Please also send then with a light rain coat as we try to go outside everyday when it is light rain too.
- Spare Clothes: Please be reminded that it is very helpful for your child to have a spare set of clothes – underwear, socks, T-shirt and shorts/ dress. As the weather is warmer we are able to spend more time outside and enjoy the water and sand play.
- Wanted - Jumble items for Tanzania Table at the Garden Party
We are a group of Y.8 & 9 students who are busy fundraising for the projects we will support in November when we travel to Tanzania on our amazing service project. We are looking for your help for contributions of second-hand toys, books and any other small unwanted household items for our Jumble Table at the Summer Garden Party. If you are leaving China or just having a Spring clean, please consider donating your unwanted items to our Tanzania Jumble Table. Please send them in to either the Primary or Secondary reception desks.
LEARNING THEMES – WEDDING BELLS ARE RINGING!
This week, final preparations for Ms Mallon’s big day will be happening in the Reception classrooms. The children will be learning about different wedding traditions and all the different things that we do to celebrate this special occasion. Each of the Reception classes will be continuing to take responsibility for a different aspect of the day to help make it a success and learning the value of teamwork.

LITERACY- SPEAKING & LISTENING
The children will be supported to talk about wedding-related topics, using helpful visuals as a guide. They will talk about their own experiences of Ms Mallon’s wedding, including their favourite parts and why they liked those particular aspects. This will include time connectives to help sequence the events. Talk to your child about wedding customs and your own experiences. Do you have a family wedding photograph or video we could see?

Mathematical learning will be incorporated into each class’s responsibilities, be it measuring, weighing, counting or making patterns on decorations.
Related to dear Miss Mallon’s wedding rehearsal, we will focus on a Chinese story “The Little Mouse’s wedding” this week in Mandarin. We will be talking about Chinese wedding, costume, decoration and ceremony etc.

De kinderen van Reception krijgen deze week flessenpost! Samen met Aadje Piraatje kiezen we het ruime sop op zoek naar exotische eilanden en verloren schatten . Onderweg worden we belaagd door haaien en eten we schildpaddensoep. Heis de zeilen! Schip ahoi!
