** Quick update regarding this week’s events:
Bamboo Palooza this Friday!
Dear Parents and Carers,
We’re looking forward to seeing you at GS Bamboopalooza family festival this Friday, October 27th. There is an early Assembly on Friday, from 13:30-14:00. Parents of Primary students are invited to follow the Walking Gamelan procession out of assembly and into Heart of School (HOS), where they can collect their child from 14:00 onwards and join the Palooza celebrations on the field. Any Primary students not collected early by parents, will stay in HOS, where they can join the dancing, singing and creative activities until regular dismissal at 15:15. At 15:15 G3-G5 students will be dismissed and G1-G3 students will wait for parent/driver pick-up as usual.
Dress-up Day and Assembly:
Monday Oct 30th
All Green School students and staff are invited to come in costume on Monday October 30th (date change from Friday November 3rd). There will be a whole school assembly at 14:30, where costumes can be seen and celebrated. Children can dress-up in any way they wish, or not at all if they prefer not to. Please help your children follow our Primary School costume guidelines:
1) No weaponry of any description – no fake swords, sticks, guns, etc.
2) No gore – let’s not scare our younger student-friends!
We have just had another exciting week here in grade 5a! In mathematics we are jumping into geometry and some hands-on work with building three-dimensional shapes and identifying their attributes. This will tie in nicely with our upcoming work with designing and rebuilding our class garden. Additionally, we have started our new class novel Breadwinner by Deborah Ellis which is already turning out to be a highly engaging read!
In Thematics we are now fully immersed in the World Peace Game (Tanah Indah). Students have formed their nation tribes and are working together to build shelters, and thoughtfully trade their limited resources. Challenges are being added on daily, which require students to think critically and consider multiple perspectives. Stay tuned!
