Our Learning Journey

This week, the Nursery children have been observing the growth on their beanstalks. They added photos and drawings to their bean diaries and used their knowledge of sounds to write small captions.

In preparation for Father’s Day celebrations, the children have spoken about their daddy during circle time activities. They loved making biscuits and name tags to give to their dad as a present.

In the afternoons, they have been practicing for our assembly. They children are very excited to show you our final performance next week!

Mandarin

This week, we continued the topic of “the world of animals”. We mainly looked at marine animals, such as zhāng yú (octopus), shā yú (shark), jīng yú (whale), páng xiè (crab), hǎi tún (dolphin), hǎi xīng (starfish). We also worked on verbs to describe their movement.

To reinforce the vocabulary, please refer to the link: https://quizlet.com/_3apdp9    

Physical Education

This week in PE, the children have been introduced to a small tennis racket. They have been learning how to hold the racket correctly to hit the ball.  In swimming, the children have been practising for their swimming gala next week. 

Music

Following up on our lesson about rhythm, your children have practised reading and playing a longer rhythmic phrase using notation. They have become very effective at performing call and response and they have explored the idea of one versus many using their voices and body percussion.

Continuing Our Learning Journey at Home

Miss Good would like the children to practice for their swimming gala.

Please can the children practise the following activities at home:

  • Swimming on their tummy.
  • Swimming on their back.
  • Going underwater to touch Mum or Dad’s toes.
  • Swimming through Mum or Dad’s legs under water.
  • Jumping in.
