Spelling year 2: explorer postpone route sailed correct study second eyes soon times
Dear Parents and Children,
The end of term approaches rapidly as this rather wet and rainy week passed us by. Luckily the sun came out just in time for the extended weekend. The year 1’s and 2’s have been productive in their learning.
Reports will go home today with the students. Please fill in the parent section and bring it to Parent Conferences on Wednesday 28 March. Also, please enter your name on the booking sheet at the office to arrange a convenient meeting time with your child’s teacher.
In English the year 2s have been consolidating our understanding of nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs by creating funny fill-in stories for our classmates and we will complete our re-vamped typed versions of “Handa’s Surprise” next week. In IPC we learned about Christopher Columbus and why he was an important explorer, thank you to those children who brought in their own examples of famous people from the past for our class display. In Math the students continued to work with money with role-playing shop activities to learn how to calculate small amounts.
We would like to end-off the money unit with a Flea-market activity for the year 1 and 1/2 classes. We want to setup a few table-stalls of items that the students can “purchase” with the play money that we use in class. It will require some donations of items that can be sold at the stalls. We would like to have 6 stalls. Toys, Stationary, Books, Snacks, Clothes and “Odds ‘n Ends or hand-made crafts”. If each parent donates 4 separate items to at least 4 stalls it should provide enough to have a successful mini-market for the students to buy something. The items should be small, old, cheap things that you or your children would not mind donating and they will be priced not more than £2.00 at our market. The more items that are donated, the more fun it will be for the students. Each student will be given the same amount of play money (£5.00) to spend at the stalls. We would like to have the market on Thursday 29 March from 10:30 am until 11:30 am in the Year 1 and 1/2 classes. We thank you for your support with this fun little activity.
Also to remind you that the. School trip to Ulsan Museum and Grand park scheduled for Tuesday 2y March will go ahead as planned. We will monitor the weather on Monday and alert you should there be any changes.
Have a wonderful long-weekend,
Mr. Kearney and Ms. You
