Fairytales

This week we have started looking at fairytales, their settings, characters, beginning, middle, end, problem & solution and magic. We have read lots of different versions of Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood comparing and what is the same and what is different. We worked today to make a giant fairytale poster. Have a look

We will continue working on this and adding new fairytales.

We have also been working on number bonds and subtraction stories in Math.

We worked hard on our books. We published them for our wall display.

Dear parents,

Tomorrow we will be having a party. This is to say well done to the children for being so fantastic and filling up their sticker buckets. Children should still wear their uniform but they can bring in 1 toy. I will provide the party treats 🙂

I also want to say thank you to all the parents who sent in food for the teacher appreciation lunch, everything was so delicious! It was a real treat, you are all so generous 🙂

End of Year Celebration

Save the Date!!!!

Wednesday, June 6th 9:45 – 10.25am will be our Kindergarten End of Year Celebration. This is a very exciting day for KG so mark the date on your calendar now! You will receive more detailed information later.

Library time

Dear parents,

Just to let you know our library day will be Sunday next week instead of Monday. So please make sure your child has their library book for Sunday.

Thanks

Dear parents,

Please email me (aoreilly@uasdubai.ae) a photograph of your child holding or reading their favorite book in their favorite place to read! This will be used alongside a written piece of work based on their favorite book for a corridor display. Talk with your child about their favorite fiction book. Talk about the characters and setting of the book. What happens at the beginning, the middle and the end?

Thank you 🙂

 

Hag Al Laila

Tomorrow is Hag Al Laila, a traditional Emirati celebration to mark the occasion and the month of Ramadan and promote the values of sharing and giving. Third grade will have a parade and candy will be handed out to each class. Children can come dressed in traditional or festive party dress.

 

If you have not already filled out the end of year performance survey please do so, thank you.
