Dear DCIS Parents and Guardians,

It is with great pleasure that I write this newsletter at the end a busy and exuberant half term. The weeks seem to have passed by in a flash and have been full of activity, action, fun and of course great learning. I have thoroughly enjoyed being in and out of the classrooms this half term, seeing the children at work as they settle into their new year groups and classrooms.

As the half term draws to end, there is much to celebrate.  When I asked the teachers what the highlights of the term so far had been, this is what they told me:

For our Nursery and Reception children, the highlight has been celebrating their nationalities by learning about a country and creating giant ‘culture books’ which they can add to and reflect on throughout the year.  In Year 1, the children have particularly enjoyed learning about different types of toys, exploring the materials they are made from, interviewing their parents and teachers about the toys they used to play with as well as making their own toy to culminate the project. For Year 2, their highlight has been their trip to Gardens By The Bay where they looked at the differences between the flora that grows in different regions of the world. Year 3 have been bowled over by their team building activities at the ‘Disaster Survival Stay and Play’ which went on after school and well into the evening - a great time was had by all with many skills learnt. Year 4 have most enjoyed their Bright Sparks exit point when the children presented their miniature rooms to their parents. Our Year 5 children have shown great enthusiasm for writing, producing and filming their own TV news reports while for Year 6 the best learning experience has been designing, marketing and pitching their own invention as part of their ‘What Price Progress?’ project. All in all a busy, diverse and exciting few weeks!

Of course, there is much to look forward to over the next half term and a few dates to add to your diaries are below.

DCA Family Halloween Event

 

This year, Celebrating Diversity Week will lead nicely into our UN Day. In school, over the week, the children will be thinking about what makes them special and unique whilst at the same time, planning ahead with their classes for their UN Day displays. Information and an invitation to join us on the day has already been emailed out to parents. We do hope to see you and look forward to your support on the day. Please do note that the DCA Halloween Event is ticketed and due to its success, tickets are now sold out.

Just one final note - we have been asked if children who are attending sports/active ECAs after school may wear their PE kits to school throughout the day. This is to eliminate changing and therefore speed up the process of getting the children to their ECAs. We have made the decision to allow this for children up to Year 4 and look forward to this starting after the half term break. Children in Year 5 and Year 6 should continue to change at the end of the day.

Looking ahead to next week, I do hope you all have a relaxing break either here in Singapore or on an out of town break. As ever, we look forward to seeing the children back in school, refreshed and ready for the rest of the term.

Best wishes to you all,

Ms Kara Lebihan 

Head of Primary School
