International Day is Coming!

Congratulations to 5EY for their Sports Day win!

Whew!  Have you recovered from a GREAT Sports Day?!  That was a ton of fun, and we’re looking forward to more fun in the next few weeks before our spring break.

Burj Cup winners from 5SR!

Scooter mania!

5SS pulls to victory!

This week we expect to wrap up our division work in math–look for revision work before an assessment on early next week..

Take some short showers! We’re looking at water sources and uses in our Unit of Inquiry.  What an eye-opener our graph of fresh water, frozen fresh water, and salt water was: only about 1% of the planet’s water is fresh water.

With Exhibition work beginning very soon, we’ll continue to focus on reading non-fiction texts and writing non-fiction pieces.

Look for a new Home Learning menu on your teacher’s Google Classroom soon!

REMINDERS

We have a library lesson on Thursday.  Please remember to bring your library books to school so you may select new ones.

WE ARE THE WORLD In preparation for our 11th annual International Day celebration at UAS, which is hosted by the PTSO on Saturday 3 March, students are invited to wear clothes to school that represent their country – International Dress Day. The International Dress Day will be on Wednesday, 28 February!

The PTSO’s 11th annual International Day celebration is THIS SATURDAY at UAS.  Look for Mr. Yates at the Million Solar Stars booth when you get thirsty–fresh water will be available for when you get hot and thirsty!

Next week is Book Week at UAS, and there are many activities throughout the week including author visits, a raffle to attend the Emirates Festival of Literature with Ms. Leslie, reading challenging puzzles in an escape room, and dressing up as your favorite book character for the 8:00 am character parade on Thursday, 8 March.
