Tuesday's concert was a lovely performance!
This week in Math, we continued with elapsed time and measurement. We also made our first non-fiction writing using our own knowledge and new information from our research.
Today ways Yumiko's last day with us. We took some time to celebrate her and wish her and her family well in their new location.
The students have completed their challenges in P.E. Thank you to the P.E teachers and assistant teachers also.
So please bring the last pieces of money. If you are not sure how many challenges your child did you can give a donation. We are closing the collection on next Wednesday 14th December.
We really want to help Chechen refugees at the Linin center. We want the Chechen refugees to have human rights like freedom and a good protection and be safe in Poland. We think it is important to collect the money quickly to give the children a christmas present. They probably don’t get as many presents as we get.
Jung Hoon, Donal, and Tobi 4C
We have the most warm and festive classroom! Thanks to all for the donations and for the time our room parents put into it! It really is like opening a present each time you open the door.

Traveling Tales is still on!!
We are fortunate to be part of an international tale involving four other schools around the world. Using Adobe Spark and the 5-part Story Mountain, students have been creating the 'build up' section to our Traveling Tale. We will continue our work on Monday and are excited to share the final product after the other schools have added their sections. More information on the process and to see previous tales can be found here: http://bevansjoel.wixsite.com/travellingtales
We've kicked off our science unit with discussions about what is science and with some observational exploration. This unit will focus mainly on light and sound. However if any parents work in a science field, we welcome them to come speak to the class about the real-life science application, career possibilities, and the broader societal impact of their scientific work.
Check out 4 stunning experiements you can do at home!
