Everyone looked fantastic!
Andrew enjoyed banging the giant drum.
The children made beautiful mobiles on Tuesday.

These girls looked like traditional Korean ladies. Very elegant!
Grace, Isabelle, Alex, Linh Dan, Lucy, Lizzy, Anna and Saya!
The children were complimented on their great behavior at the Korean craft session.
Our aim to get guided reading officially off the ground was a little ambitious, with all of the Korea Week events happening! However, groups were set up, and the children worked together in their group to produce a document about their reading interests and habits. They then looked for where these interests overlapped and identified shared preferences. From next week, they will take part in structured guided reading activities.
Next week, we will continue with multiplication, and begin relating this to division. I know that many children find division challenging, so we are going to give this unit plenty of time to develop and consolidate our understanding.
Notes and reminders
Next Wednesday will be our class health screening day. Please make sure children wear their glasses or contact lenses on this day.
As we are using the laptops more and more, the need for earphones has arisen. In order to make use of various educational websites and audio books, children need to bring in a pair of earphones that they can use for such tasks. Please allow your child to bring a pair to school next week.
We are currently still using homework notebooks, but we are going to begin relying more heavily on Edmodo for homework communication. Please encourage your child to check Edmodo every night.
