Happy New Year! A big welcome back to all of our returning students and an extra special welcome to the new families who have joined us this term.
Don’t forget our Primary Academic Review Evenings taking place on Tuesday 17th and Thursday 19th January from 5pm to 8pm. Information on how to make an appointment was sent out earlier this week. Please let your child’s class teacher know if you did not receive this.
January and February are usually the coldest months of the year in Shanghai. Please make sure your child comes to school every day wearing the correct Early Years winter uniform, and with appropriate layers to equip them for the playground.

Overview of next week’s learning
During the second week of Term 2 the Pre Nursery 2 children will be strengthening listening skills and learning ‘loud’ and ‘soft’ sounds with musical instruments. Through Maths games the children will start to identify the number symbol 2. Following a visible interest in ‘Pirates” and our theme of ‘let’s get building’ we will be building boats using various materials to float in our water tray. On Friday children are asked to bring a ‘show and tell’ object from home that is not too precious or valuable, and possibly something they have built themselves.
