And we’re off! It has been a busy few days, as Mrs. Wen and I get to know your children better. As a class, we have been doing activities to help us get to know each other and learn our classroom routines.
Chasing Chester… To get to know our school better, we went on a scavenger hunt following the clues left by Chester from the story, “The Kissing Hand”. We didn’t catch Chester the raccoon, however we did meet a lot of people in our school community who saw him. He did leave us some chocolate kisses before he jumped back into the book.
First Day Jitters… Sometimes we start school feeling a little nervous. We read the story “First Day Jitters” to explore those feelings. Then we drank “Jitter Juice” to help chase away those butterflies in our tummy. It’s magical!
Making Friends… A new school year means a chance to see old friends again and make new friends. We played Find-A-Friend scavenger hunt, and Who am I? to help kids get to know each other.
We are Building a Community of Learners!

Message from Mr. B regarding swimming
Swimming will start as of Wednesday 22nd August and will be concluded on Friday 14th of September. During this time each PE lesson will be a swimming lesson.
Please ensure that your child brings their swimming clothes/equipment on their PE day during this period of time. As swimming is a mandatory part of our curriculum, we therefore ask that you help prepare your child with all the necessary items for each swimming lesson.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the PE Department at school or via email.
