ECA/BISCAP - Please inform the class teacher via a note in your child’s Communication Book if your child’s arrangements change for BISCAP, ECA or end of the day pick up. As changes involve a disruption to normal routines this helps us support you in getting your child home safely.
- Lunch - If your child has been registered and leaves school after 9.30 Sleto will still charge for lunch unless they know in advance. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you know your child will not be in school for lunch by 9.30 so that you are not charged.
- Security - Our new security system is still at the trial stage. Adults only should use the glass gates to enter and exit the school; children should use the metal gates to the side. If you are concerned that your child is young and you want to be with them then please accompany them through the metal gates. Thank you for your support.
- Tanzania – Our annual Tanzania animal dress-up day will be on Friday 16 october. Children will find out more in assembly next week.
- The optional homework task sent on Wednesday 23 September should be handed in on Monday 12 October. Normal homework will resume on Wednesday 14 October.
- Please can you provide your child with a light rain jacket on days where rain is forecast. To minimise the amount of time children are inside the classroom, the children will go outside for playtimes during light rain.
- There will be an iPad parent workshop on Tuesday 13 october 8:45 – 9:30am in Stage 1.
- Lunches - Please be aware that SLETO take the numbers for lunches from the school register at 9.30am every day. If you are taking your child out of school after 9.30am please inform SLETO in advance so that you are not charged on that day.
- After School Contact System - New information about this has been added to the website to help at http://www.nordangliaeducation.com/our-schools/shanghai/puxi/after-school-contact-system. Please ensure that your child’s class teacher is aware of any changes to regular going home arrangements early in the day by writing details in your child’s Communication Book.
This week in Literacy we will be beginning an exciting series of lessons about debate. We shall be investigating a range of moral issues and learning the key skills required to maturely discuss them and express differeing opinions. The first topic we shall be investigating is the topical issue of refugee movement around the globe. As part of our wider topic where we look at the affect of conflict on children, we shall investigate the current conflict in Syria and the wider issues surrounding the fighting.
In Maths, we will be continuing our unit of work on data handling. We will consolidate our work on line graphs and then move on to pie charts. This will involve work on both fract ions and percentages as we seek to calculate different portions of the pie charts. We will also look at how to interpret these charts and discuss when they are most appropriate to use.
In Themed Learning we will continue to look at rationing. The children will use what they have learnt in the preceeding week to cook a World War 2 recipe in our Cooking Room. This will involve careful calculation of ingredients needed, appropriate use of the resources in the room and then the evaluation of the work. This will help the children appreciate the actual effect of rationing on what people cooked and ate.
Our focus this week in PHSCE will be the effects of civil war on population movements and the politics and contrasting opinions that this generates.
Literacy – however, therefore, in addition, furthermore, nevertheless, despite
Maths – data, graph, mean, median, mode, range, pattern, trend, analyse
Humanities – rationing, shortage, U-Boat, coupons
Colafonteinen, dansende rozijnen, ballonnen opblazen (jawel, opblazen) met cola, een gekookt ei in een fles toveren én er weer uit... Raar maar waar is het thema van de kinderboekenweek en daarmee van ons Boekenkamp. We doen vrijdag proeven, maken het model van een uitvinding en doen een levend ganzenbordspel. Tijdens de lesweek zullen de verschillende klassen verantwoordelijk worden gemaakt voor de uitvoering van een proef op vrijdag.
De rest van de week staat in het teken van de introductie van het nieuwe thema:
Dames en Heren, Hooggeëerd publiek...!
Alles wat met circus te maken zal de komende weken de revue passeren: functies en beroepen, een circusverhaal, krantenartikelen over het failliete Circus Renz, een actieplan om het circus te redden... We lezen het boek De dikke bende van de Korenwolf en de vondst van het stiekeme circus.
