Dear Parents and Children,

This week has seen many milestones and occasions in the Year 2/3 Johannesburg class. We were lucky to have a visit from a familiar face in Mr. Kim – the children were delighted to see him.

In class this week we began looking at informal letters, focusing on the book “Dear Mr. Blueberry”. The students learned the features of an informal letter. We will continue with this next week as they prepare to write letters to an old friend from the year 2 class. In Math we continued looking at fractions and how to make ½, ¼ and 1/3 of amounts of things. We continued with our IPC investigation on the changing states of matter looking at how long it takes for different substances to change from a liquid to a solid.

The highlight of this week was undoubtedly our trip to Busan National Science Museum. The students had a fantastic time exploring scientific principles in hands-on installations. It was a hugely successful trip and the students were able to see and interact with dancing robots, aeronautical exhibits and enjoy playing with devices that demonstrated forces.

We celebrated Olivia McCarthy’s birthday but it was bittersweet knowing that she would be leaving this week. We wish you adventure and delight every day in your new school, Olivia!

Have a wonderful weekend.
