Thank you for the outstanding support you have demonstrated both to us as your child’s teachers and to your child in helping them navigate the challenges of year one.  Your support with homework, reading, school trips and other events is deeply appreciated and does have a meaningful impact on the learning of all of our students.  As you go now on summer holidays and other adventures, keep safe and cherish your time with loved ones.

Suggested holiday learning

As we all know, learning never stops and there are so many opportunities for children to keep thinking, discovering, understanding and developing over their long summer break.  If you are looking for some solutions for keeping growing minds active you may like to use some of the following links with your child:

1.         Look around your environment and sketch the trees, flowers and plants you can see. Can you draw and label your picture with the parts of a plant?

2.        Go for a walk around your local area with your parents. What jobs do people do there? How does your home town compare to your local area in Shanghai?

3.        Keep a short diary about your holiday. Remember to write the days of the week and the date at the top!

4.       Practise what we learned in Literacy by writing a postcard whilst on your vacation. Send it to your friends or family!
