Today we celebrated 100 days of school with fun activities with each Prep teacher.

We thought about the way we can move our bodies and watched some videos of “stick people”. Then created our own pipe cleaner people. Follow this link to see a video of our creations.

Some things we did this week:

  • We continued with some experiments
    • Made gummy bear slime
    • Looked at how air pressure can make a foam rocket move
    • Created our own cars using toilet paper rolls
  • We went to watch the G6 practice their performance after spending just 3 days with the Young Americans. The kids were amazed by the ability of the G6 buddies.
  • We enjoyed our second House Day!

Prep needs your help in our next Unit of Inquiry ‘How We Express Ourselves’!
We are looking for members of the CDNIS community (parents and other family members) who are passionate about an art form that they can teach the Prep students on Wednesday March 8. We are looking for any type of art form, and some examples could be sewing, knitting, poetry writing, drama, martial arts, etc. We will all meet at 12:20 and then the students from Prep will choose the art form they would like to learn about for 30 minutes. Please contact Rebecca (Prep E teacher) at if you would like to volunteer for this event.  Thank you!
