Weekly Update – Term 3 Week 9

Week 9 complete! Time is flying and summer is coming. I think we are all getting a little excited about our summer plans now!

In IPC this week, we started a very exciting new unit called ‘Push Me, Pull You’, which focuses on the science behind forces. For our Entry Point the students had a game of ‘Tug-of-war’ where they had to pull as hard as they could to beat the other team. It was so much fun!  Mr de Klerk’s class came to help us as the rope was very heavy! We also played a game where the students had to guess which force is being used when we: play on a swing set, ride a bicycle, open or close a door and today we took various pieces of gym equipment and observed how we would move on it. Would we push or would we pull?

In English this week, we explored dictionaries and fact files.The students looked at a dictionary and learnt how to use one to find relevent information. They also looked at fact files to find information. We worked in groups using different information books about animals to make our own fact file. Homework this week is to make their own one at home. Year 1 students may need a little support with it.

In Maths, both year groups are learning about time. Today the Year 1 students practised writing their age in years and months. I didn’t enjoy writing about how old I am! 😉 The Year 2 students have reviewed time to the hour, quarter past, half past and quarter to. They worked on telling the time in written form today and did very well. 

ABC countdown has been a hit so far and the students loved the popcorn on Monday! It was gone in about 10 minutes haha! It was lovely to see lots of opposite creations and I loved the cute pyjamas that some of the children chose to wear today! These socks were THE BEST! 

The children had a ball playing in Games today!

Gyeongju World

We are going to be taking a trip to Gyeongju world to celebrate a great year. We will be going on Wednesday 21st June 2023. I would like to invite parents to come and join us! We would love some helping hands and it is always fun to go on rides with the kids:) The cost of the tickets are: Children, 19,000원  and Adult, 23,000원. However, the school will cover 5,000 won per child, so may I ask for you to send 14,000 won to the office for the students’ admission, and if you would like to come and join it will be 23,000 won for an adult ticket. Please fill in this form and let me know if you can make it by Monday 12th June. Thank you so much.

I look forward to meeting you all next week for Parent Teaching Meetings. Appointments are back to back so please may I ask for you all to be on time and I will try my best to not talk for longer than 15 minutes 🙂 Thanking you in advance.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the sunshine!
