Dear all parents and families,
Welcome back to 3B. Hope everybody had/ is having a very joyful and relaxing break. We have started the first week of school by reviewing some of the lesson to get the students mind and soul back to school :). We are still continuing our “Local Food and Farming” theme till this week. We are playing the farmers game with some made “Situation Challenge” like weather changing, diseases, and the fall of the selling point of a certain item, that need the students to count the point of each item they have in the game and rebuild their farm with a different items they might think wouldn’t easily attacked by weather or diseases.
We are also still taking care of our rice field, monitor the growing, what it needs to grow better, what does not belong to the field that need to taken out.
To end the smooth yet productive coming back to school week, we close the week last week by making a Traditional Healthy Drink, JAMU, not only one, but six kinds. We invited a professional Jamu Maker from Denpasar to teach and guide us in making Jamu in the right way. The students had so much fun experiencing grating a whole 1 kg of herbs like turmeric and ginger or Galangal. They also learnt some names of the herbs and the benefit of it to our body. At the end, they brought their creation home for you to taste.
This week in Thematic, we are going to learn about medicinal herbs around campus, learn how does it look and the benefit and playing mystery plant hunter. This all supported by Pak Noan, Middle School teacher- GS herbs expert.
