Welcome to the first Middle Pre-Primary blog of 2017/2018!
First, we would like to welcome Ben, Kenisha, Lenny-Jean and Diya to our lovely school! We are so happy that you have joined our class and we can’t wait for the many adventures we will have together during the year. We would also like to say a big welcome to Bernardo, an Erasmus intern, who is helping us in Middle Pre-Primary for the next few months!
Since we have been back at school we have spent lots of time getting to know each other. We have enjoyed playing together, making puzzles, creating lots of art and having lots of fun! We have settled in well to the daily routine of school and learning new songs and dance moves!
We also began our phonics and so far, we have learnt about letters ‘a’ and ‘b’. We also got to learn some fun songs and we especially love the ‘ants’ song!
Last Friday we had a very special entry point to our first IPC unit – Houses and Homes! With Upper Pre-Primary, we made a huge house with lots of different materials like boxes and blankets! We had so much fun and it was great to be able to play with the other children too! Since then we have painted our own homes and we have made a wonderful house in our classroom too! We are having lots of fun playing in the house, sleeping in the bedroom and making food for our friends!
We also learnt about our first ‘personal value’ which is respect, we discussed what respect means and how we can make sure we are being respectful to our friends and our school! It was great to put the first piece onto our “personal values" castle!
We have had a great start to the year in Middle Pre-Primary and I am really looking forward to all the adventures we are going to have over the year with this wonderful class!
