This week, we continued with fractions in math and poems and story writing using a picture prompt in Daily 5. We also began our new unit, Sharing the Planet.

Field Trip: We will be going on a field trip next week, Friday 6 May to MacRitchie Reservoir. We are inquiring into living things and their ecosystems. A letter went home via email (and paper copy with each child) on Friday, 29 April. We will be leaving between 8:15 and 8:30 after students have eaten their snack. When we arrive back at school, lunch will be eaten in the classroom. There is no cost for the trip. We look forward to a fun filled day. More information is included in the letter sent home.
Swimming: As a reminder, PE is not taking place on Monday or Fridays. Instead, students will have a double block of swimming on Tuesdays after playtime. Please remember all necessary items for these lessons each Tuesday. Please remind your children to use their own towels and combs in order to stop the spread of head lice during this time.
No School: Monday, 2nd May
Have a great, long weekend!
We are 7 and 8 year old students who live in Singapore. Our teacher, Ms. Luttrell, will be helping us write blog posts throughout the year!
