End of year party


Dear Kindergarten Parents,

     The end of the year is coming soon! We are excited to have a party to celebrate our learning, our friends and to just have some fun! This party is for our kindergarten students only.
     Children need to bring their swimming clothes in a separate bag, just as they did for swimming class.Water shoes or sandals are also encouraged on this day. We will have a picnic-style lunch after the party, so your child should bring a large towel to sit on. Please label your child’s name on everything.
     We are asking parents to donate food for our potluck lunch. Your food dish should be enough for about 8-10 students. You can send the food in the morning with your child, or bring it to the secret garden between 11:30-11:45. Please sign up here for the potluck lunch: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0c4caead28a2fe3-kindergarten1
Kind regards,
The Kindergarten Team

The Egg

Yesterday, the children watched an egg break when dropped from the top of the stairs. This started their final design challenge. “What can you design to protect an egg from breaking when it is dropped?”

The children are using their scientific and engineering skills to solve this problem. They are working in small groups and following the ‘Design’ steps (Think, make a plan, make the design, improve it, share it-in this case, try it). Communication, collaboration and cooperation skills are also being emphasized.

First, the children thought about different ways to protect the egg. Some of their ideas were:

A water bottle

Metal/plastic ball with soft stuff inside

Box inside a box

Balloon

Tissue inside a container

Cover it with paper

Cover it with bread

 

Next, they made a plan and included the tools they would need to make the design.






After that, they started to make their design.








Next, we will be trying out their engineering skills to see if their egg remains in tact when dropped. How exciting.

Thank you parents
