Notes and Reminders:
Monday: The children will need to attend Chinese lessons before the party, please remind them to bring their Chinese folders to school. You might want to send a light jacket to school for the skating party at AMC. Finally don’t forget their swimming kit for the pool party!
Tuesday: Please join us for the parents appreciation tea at 1:30pm. The children are reminded to bring along their instruments, music books, USB ports, costumes etc for the talent show.
Wednesday: Transition morning to learn about life in Grade 3 and to meet some of the teachers. Final Assembly of the year will be held at 10:55pm in the forum.
HOLIDAY WORK SUGGESTIONS:
A few parents have asked about holiday homework. I would recommend playing and lots of adventures for your child over the Summer. However, an hour of work each day would be a beneficial routine to get into.
Reading every day for 20 minutes or more. This can be shared reading, your child reading alone or reading Raz Kids.
Mathletics: this is a great resource, that the children will be able to play on and help further their learning over the Summer.
Primary Library website: Brittanica: a fantastic learning tool for you and your children to enjoy together at home.
Math Workbook: your child will come home with their math workbook that they are working on in class. I would recommend buying another math workbook over the Summer. The class have enjoyed their workbooks. Kumon produce good workbooks that you can buy from any good commercial bookshop. I would recommend 1-2 pages a day.
Writing: write a journal with photos of their holidays. Here are some writing prompts that you can use. http://thewritesource.com/writing_topics/more_topics/#away
Sharing the Planet: The children love this unit, so you could grow plants at home and record how they are growing. The children could go on a mini beast hunt and write and draw about their findings. The children have loved writing their fairytales, they could write another fairytale on Story Bird, it can be accessed through the Primary Library website. I have set up a username and password for each child and they will write it in their diaries next week.
Hope this gives you some tips for the Summer.
