Kindergarten Newsletter

Friday 18th May

It has been a busy few weeks with lots of things going on. I hope you all had a wonderful mother's day and that you all got the card your child made for you and also the plant and the pot they decorated. I hope you enjoy them as they were made with love for you.

Bike assembly was fun. The final trip to Honey Hollow was educational and was full of learning.

The Keswick Theater trip to see Clementine was enjoyable and the children met some of the actors.

Grandfriends morning was delightful and the children loved sharing their knowledge with their Grandparents or Grandfriends.

Social Studies and Science. The children are learning about the rainforest and have made a mural. They have changed one end of the classroom into a rainforest. They are thrilled and very interested in this topic. They are learning great facts about the rainforest.

In math The topic of telling the time by hours and learning what passage of time means is being studied. The children are also working on math addition tiles and math books. They have completed the tangram work which they really enjoyed, although at times it was challenging, so they learned to work through their frustrations. Perseverance brought success and a great feeling of pride.
