Week Commencing 11th February
After talking about some of the people who help us last week such as our nannies, drivers, cleaners and vets, this week we will be moving on to look at how different children live around the world. Are their homes the same as ours? What is the same and what is different? Do we have more or less things than they have? Perhaps most importantly, we will be talking about what we are grateful for in our lives and what we can do to look after others as well.
We are also looking at the different continents in the world and where Bahrain is located. If you would like to have some fun at home, this seven continents song has lots of great information in it and we love singing along!
We are continuing our work on rhyming pairs in stories and as well as trying to make our own rhyming pairs and strings. If you want to play along at home, try and out the game in the video… and maybe you can put together a bag of rhyming objects to match 🙂
We are continuing to sequence numerals, putting them in the right order. It isn’t easy when you’re 3 and 4 so we need lots of practice! You can have a go at home with this caterpillar sequencing game
In Arabic we will be learning about:
- Topic: Jungle Animals (Elephant).
- Read and colour the letter Fa’a (ف).
- Pronounce at least 3 words that contain the letter.
- Colour: Pink
Story: قصة (الفيل).
21st and 22nd February – Half term
25th February – 1st March: Book Week
Book Week will start on Sunday 25th of February and run throughout the week. We will have lots of fun activities planned including asking the children to bring in their favourite story to read aloud to their friends. In addition, a year 6 class will join us one day to read some books together. We will also be asking for parent volunteers to come and read with their child’s class during the week.
On Thursday 1st of March the whole school will have Book Character Day. Your child should come to school dressed up as their favourite book character and bring the book too for sharing if possible. The best costumes are always the homemade ones that the children have made with you. They have that special personal touch 🙂
11th March – 22nd March: We will be holding our Parent Teacher Meetings at the end of each day during these 2 weeks. A little nearer to the time we will open up the booking system so that you can select your preferred available slots.
On Thursday 22nd March it is Arabic Mothers Day and we will be inviting all our mums into our classes at the end of the day. We are giving you lots of notice as we would love it if all mums can come. We will be inviting you to join us from 11:30 and you will be doing a little activity with your child to celebrate your special day 🙂
