IB Principle: Caring – We explained how important it is to have respect, compassion and empathy towards the feelings and needs of others.  

Writing and Phonics: This week the Squad received two new sight words, ‘dog” and “cat”. We are impressed with how they are remembering their sight words, their little faces light up each time they realise they can “read”, hehe to cute! – Please keep practicing sight words at home too. They Traced the letters “p”,” q”, and “r” in their workbooks, followed by writing their name using the “cat method”. –  Great work Squad! 

Mathematics:  For maths this week the Squad practiced counting from 30 and back as well as completed addition sums up to 10 using the “counting on method”.  

Cooking: We are currently working on our cooking activity over the next two weeks, the Squad are excited to complete it and bring it home.  

Creative Art: The Squad made their own picture frames made out of a wooden house ucing ice cream sticks and covered them in glitter,  they then drew their family inside, they came out super cute!  

Have a wonderful weekend!

Creative Art: For art this week we completed a “what will I be when I grow up?” worksheet which will be kept for the Book of Me. We also made chef hats so that the Squad has a hat for cooking classes. We also had a free ‘messy’ play where they were allowed to use different equipment and art forms in order to express themselves.

Science and Experiments

 For our cooking class this week, the Squad did an interesting experiment where we made our own Crunchy Rock Candy, using ice-cream sticks, boiling water, food colouring and sugar. The Squad were fascinated by how the crystals were formed, once the water temperature decreased more molecules joined the sugar crystals.

For art this week we completed some lovely Easter pieces which will be taken home. They made a pop-up bunny from a cup and straws (created independently but with some guidance). They also made an Easter card which they wrote themselves and also stuck some pasta into patterns and painted it. Remember – some bunny loves you!
