An update and an invite
Dear 4B Families and Friends,
Like the kids themselves, our post this week is short and sweet.
We just wanted to take the opportunity to pass on an important invite as well as to share a few pics of our recent learning adventures.
1. 4B are performing at this Friday’s assembly
First and foremost, we’d like to formally invite you all to our upcoming assembly performance, this Friday from 2:30pm in the Sangkep. 4B students will be performing a dance, called Ondel-Ondel, offering a taste of our learning in Indonesian Cultural studies this term. We’ve had a great deal of fun under the expert guidance of Ibu Ayu and can’t wait to show you what we’ve learned. Please come along.
2. A celebration of team work
Speaking of fun, on Thursday last week, 4B came together for a class picnic and extended lunch to celebrate achieving the first of our team learning goals for the year. As you know, in accordance with the class agreements developed earlier in the year by the students themselves, extraordinary acts of kindness, compassion, leadership, teamwork, initiative, effort and problem solving are highly valued in our class community and acknowledged through the bestowing of ‘kudos’, through student to student nominations and teacher appreciation.
Last week’s class picnic celebrated the 500 extraordinary acts of care, respect and community-building demonstrated by class 4B during the first 3 months of the year. Well done 4B!
On the topic of kindness, we’d also like to thank the thoughtful families who kindly donated an extra little treat during lunch, from beautifully crafted sushi to delicious popcorn. The smiles on the faces of the kids said it all. Your treats were ever so gratefully devoured as fuel for the afternoon’s games.
Class picnic celebrations – ‘Hurry up so that we can eat Pak Matt’
Creative and delicious – thank you so much.
3. An update on our adventures in Science
To conclude this week’s blog, we’ve a few photos from Pak Olly about our latest adventures in Science, showing students making thermocline colour barriers, as they learn why warmer liquids rise and cooler liquids sink according to their relative mass and density.
Judging by some of the photos we may have to work on our modelling/acting skills, but as scientists we’re doing great things.
Wishing you all a great week, and looking forward to seeing you on Friday.
