Note: I would like to ask all parents to please send a change of clothes to be stored at school in case of bathroom accidents. The children are still young and accidents do happen. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
Wow! I can’t believe we’re already finished our first week here in Ottawa Class! This week was spent getting to know each other, learning school routines, and engaging in learning through active play.
The students began the week with a keen interest in dinosaurs. They played some jungle scenes and told me the names of all the dinosaurs they knew. A dinosaur exploration is definitely in our future.
They also really enjoyed the play kitchen we have set up in the centre of the classroom. Everyone spent a great deal of time arranging elaborate picnics to feed Ms. Jiyu and I.
Lego blocks and building structures were definitely enjoyed.
As the week progressed, an interest in numbers and letters began to be seen by the FS2 students. They’re definitely keen to begin diving deep into learning literacy and expanding their number sense. We also explored some colours and patterns.
And a week at school wouldn’t be complete without some Physical Education. Ask your child about the “Red Light/Green Light” game we played in PE class. It was a favourite and it’s sure to be repeated in weeks to come.
We’re looking forward to next week when we have a new student in Y1 joining our merry band of friends.
Have a great weekend!
All the best,
