Weekly Update – Term 3 Week 10

Dear Parents,

It was so lovely to see you all at Parent Teacher Conferences this week. Thank you so much for coming in. 

It sure  is getting hot out there! The sun is shining, the kids are sweating and we are all getting excited for the summer holidays!

We have had another busy week here in Year 1/2!

In Maths, Year 2 students spent the week reviewing numbers to 100. We reviewed addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Year 1 students finished off their time unit and I am confident that they will be able to tell you the time now…but only when it is on the hour or half past – haha! (For now!).

In English, we finished up our last unit ‘Finding Out’ and looked at writing reports. Next week we will be reviewing and wrapping up unfinished pieces of work. Rotations are going well as always and I am very proud of how far the students have come along this term. It is so rewarding to see them read and write more and more.

IPC has been so much fun this week! We looked at air resistance and water force and completed some fun experiments! I never managed to take any pictures of our experiment today but we tested to see if a bucket of water would move (i) a netball (ii) a volleyball and then also tried it out using a water gun! It was lots of fun but very hot!

This week in P.E. and games we took out our parachute and had lots of fun playing different games with it. We also played a game called “Hungry Hippos” (like the boardgame) in Games and it was a huge hit!

I look forward to seeing some of you next Wednesday, 21st June for our field trip to Gyeongju World. Please remember to wear the school uniform. The thin summer one might be best in this hot weather!

We will also need

  • A snack that is easy to eat
  • A lunchbox that doesn’t need to be heated
  • Some sun cream 
  • An optional afternoon snack as they often get hungry before leaving the amusement park

Some students ask if they can bring money on the field trip. There are some snack shops for drinks, ice-cream and candyfloss and if the children don’t like getting wet, you can purchase a rain jacket for 2,000 won. Perhaps 10,000 won would be a good amount to give your child in case they want to purchase a snack. 

I hope you all have a great weekend!

See you next week for our last week of the year. 

Mrs. Sim
