Letter 35 (2017-18)

18 June 2018
Dear Parents,
          Here we are at the last week of school and we have another exciting group activity planned for the children. We will have a good-bye party on Thursday June 21 with some games, and some food. Please sign up to bring some food to share. This is a party to enjoy together with classmates, so parents do not need to plan to come. Also, this is a reminder that school ends at 12:00 for all students, so no school lunch or daycare is provided.
          This week we will be practicing for our Early Years End of Year Show which will be held on Tuesday 19 June at 8:45 a.m.  Please arrive at school by 8:15 as we will have to get ready before we go on stage.  If you have not yet sent in the children’s clothes for the performance, please do so as soon as possible.  Please also come and take a look at your child’s artwork.  The Early Years and KS1 Art Exhibition will be held this Tuesday and Wednesday in the common play area in front of our classroom. Details about the art exhibition can be found in the Art letter which was sent last week.
          This week, we will be finishing some final activities and giving out the art portfolios and all of the work that the students have completed all year long.  In addition, you will receive the reports and portfolios/digital pictures on a DVD.  These will serve as a record of your child’s achievement this year. 
          Here in Nursery, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the parents for your continued support over this school year. It is amazing to see how the children have grown so much within a year. The year has been busy, productive and fun-filled for the children.  You have been a great group of parents to work with.
Finally, I would like to take this chance to say good-bye to all of you. I wish you all a great summer vacation, and will be looking forward to seeing all of you again back here at school in August.  School commences on Tuesday August 20, 2018. Have a safe and happy summer!
                                                                                       Best Wishes,

                                                                                       Ms. Marizon

Letter 34 (2017-18)

11 June 2018
Dear Parents,
          Time has certainly passed by very quickly this term, and we are now approaching the end of the school year.  Many events will be coming up next week.
We certainly got a lot done in Nursery last week! We were busy preparing for Art Week and our End of Year Performance
In the art centre, we started to make our group art piece for our class canvas, which will be in the auction for art week next week.  It took us a very long time, as we had to dye all the pieces before we will be able to put them together this week.  The children all worked very hard. Some of us helped to make so many pieces and were happy to see the colours appear on each flower petal that we made. 
Last week we also continued to talk about the beach. We pretended to walk on the beach and found seashells, which we then used to decorate our sand castles. We also pretended that we went swimming in the sea, and found different kinds of sea animals. We were able to come up with the names of many sea animals before discovering new ones. We also played a fishing game, which required us to swim around the big play area to look for fish of different colours. 
This week we will continue to practice for our End of Year Performance. We will also continue to work on our class canvas and make our individual art pieces for the art sale.  The children already explored what we are going to make and are very excited about it.

                                                                                      Best Regards,

                                                                                      Ms. Marizon
