Dear Parents and Children,
It has been a full week in the year 3 – 4 Johannesburg class in more ways than one. We started this week with a fire-drill and the students did exceptionally well. I have no doubt that they will know what to do should there ever be one at the school.
In English this week we completed chapters five and six of “The Hodgeheg”. The students are really enjoying Max’s unfortunate exploits and we learned how to do a summary. In our spelling and vocabulary, we learned about “ey” words in year 3 and in year 4 that “in” as a prefix sometimes means “not”. In Math we continued with strategies for quick mental addition and subtraction. We will focus on multiplication and division next week.
In IPC the students finished off their “Brainwave” Unit by presenting their prepared lessons to Mr. Kim. He was enthralled to hear about how to play cricket, football and baseball as well as learning some Korean and all about Disney movies. We also started our new IPC unit, “Chocolate” with an awesome lesson about how different chocolate affects our senses. The students had fun tasting a variety of yummy (and not-so-yummy) chocolate.
In P.E. we continued practicing target games with some “Human Bowling” and actual bowling. I am pleased that the students looked so sharp for their class photos. We ended off the week with a fantastic trip to the Promenade Festival at Taehwagang Park. It was entertaining to see the performers out in the open. We enjoyed two shows – a dance performance and a hilarious “drawing circus” clown duo. Some of our students were lucky enough to participate.
I look forward to next week’s learning being as fun. Have a great weekend.
