Dear Parents and children,
We have had a short but productive week in the year 3 – 4 Johannesburg class. Our Chuseok program went off without a hitch and I was so proud of the hard work that the students put forth toward their presentations. They looked great in their outfits as well. Thank you to all the parents who attended, the students really appreciate you being there to see their performances.
In class this week we have been busy, reviewing chapter three and four of our class reader “The Hodgeheg” with some comprehension questions and learning about how apostrophes are used for contraction. There are no spelling words for this week since it was so short. In Math we reviewed basic addition facts and strategies as well as doing a times table test.
In IPC we continued learning about the brain, specifically ways in which we can take care of it, linking to ICT as the students had to discuss the topic and then watch a video to see if their ideas were correct.
P.E. was a continuation of our target games, moving from rolling and throwing to striking a target with accuracy. The students had fun using hockey sticks to try and strike a cone with precision.
I am excited for our first school trip next week. On Friday 20 September at 10:30 am, after morning snack break, we will go to the Ulsan Promenade festival at Taehwagang river. We will return by 3:20 pm so that club activities can go ahead as usual. Students should wear their blue school shirt comfortable, shoes and pack a portable lunch and water bottle. Please click here to complete the online permission form by no later than Tuesday 17 September if you would like your child to attend. It promises to be a fun day of culture and learning.
That is all for this week. I look forward to seeing you at the curriculum evening on Monday 16 September from 5:30 pm to 6:15 pm. Enjoy the pictures below of the Chuseok festivities. Have a wonderful Chuseok!
