Week Beginning 21 March 2016

International week takes place this week with our parade on Friday 25 March. On this day the children are encouraged to come to school wearing clothes that represent their country in some way.

MESSAGES

  • We are asking that the children dress up for the International Parade on Friday 25 March instead of bringing in a toy for Show and Tell.  This will give us more time to talk about everyone’s special outfit, and decrease the chance of losing a precious toy before the start of the school holiday.
  • Early Years will be having out “International Tasting” on Thursday 24 March.  We are excited to see and try all different foods from around the world.
  • The last day of school for Term 2 is on Friday 25 March.  We will have a holiday from Saturday 26 of March until Monday 4 of April.  School will resume on Tuesday 5 of April.  During this period please take home all personal belongings such as spare clothes, bedding, and diapers.

LEARNING THEME

The children really enjoyed being introduced to the continent of Africa last week through the story “Handa’s Surprise.” This week we will delve further into this topic, and start focusing on some of the many interesting characteristics of the African Continent. We will learn about the different animals that live in Africa, and explore the patterns seen on their bodies. We will paint African drums and dance to traditional African songs.  During the International Food Tasting we will be able to try small snacks from African nations, including South Africa. 

Key Vocabulary: Africa, giraffe, elephant, rhino, hippo, ostrich, drum, peacock, pattern, fur, feathers

Understanding the World

International Week allows us to look at the different countries the students in our class are from.  We will start the week by learning how to say “Hello” in different languages.  Some counties, such as Australia and England, greet each other in the same way.  Other countries have different ways of saying hello, and it will be fun to compare the similarities and differences.  The International Tasting will allow us to try foods from countries.  Some of these foods may be very similar to the ones we eat every day, and other will be new and exciting!  During our International parade the students are encouraged to wear traditional outfits from their home country, or the colours of their national flags.  We will discuss how the children’s outfits vary and what we like about everyone outfits.

Key Vocabulary:  country, greetings, outfits, food, same, different

Dutch

Naar aanleiding van de `International Week`verkennen we een typische Vlaams-Nederlandse  markt met allerlei marktkramen waarbij de kaasboer en het viskraam  natuurlijk niet mogen ontbreken.  In de Nederlandse klas liggen de maatjes, de garnalen en de vers gebakken kibbeling deze week in aanbieding in de winkelhoek!

Mandarin

The children really like our “Handa’s Surprise” story. They talk about what they like best about the fruit. So we are going to continue this story this week adding in animal vocabulary. Which animal liked the yellow banana? As it is international week is approaching, we are still introducing the name of our countries to the children so that they can say where they are from and their friends are from.
