Following the Independence Day all Preschoolers and Toddlers have started to get ready for the next big events this month! This week we came together every day to rehearse for our whole school Preschool assembly (December 5th).  The children were also excited to learn a new song for the Winter Festival (December 11th). Mark these dates in your calendar please!

We are looking forward to welcoming all children and their parents and siblings for the Student Lead Conferences tomorrow!

Another Friday has arrived! Students have been busy finishing their project relating to the fairy tale ‘’The Three Little Pigs’’. On Thursday they explored different rhythms by playing different musical instruments together with Mr Mark. There was a big surprise at the school’s playground when students arrived on Friday morning! During the night snow had covered the ground and the little ones really enjoyed the outside time playing in the soft snow. Happy birthday to Stanislaw who turned three years old! Toddlers are looking forward to celebrating their learning together with the parents during the Student Led Conferences this Saturday, November 22nd!

Preschool 1a
The children have been very busy in preparing for the Student Led Conferences. We thought back to the beginning of the year when we all engaged in Me and My Country Unit of Inquiry (UoI) and revisited some of the many activities and events that took place.  We also spoke about and reflected upon the current UoI, Once upon a time… and the various fairy tales we have been learning about to date, including: Goldilocks and the Three Bears; The Three Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf; Rumpelstiltskin; The Turnip; Three Billy Goats Gruff; Cinderella; and The Mitten.
Children liked to play our The Three Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf with the props (the houses made of straw, sticks, and bricks as well as the pig and wolf masks). They also liked to help find a warm cosy home for the mole, rabbit, hedgehog, owl, badger, fox, bear, and mouse in The Mitten!

Preschool 1b
This week was short, but nevertheless exciting! We celebrated William’s 4th birthday on Thursday with our favourite birthday book, songs and yummy cupcakes made by William’s mum! Happy Birthday, William!
On Friday morning almost every child commented excitedly about the snow outside! “Did you see the snow outside?”, “The houses are white!”, “It is Winter!”

Preschool 2
Students have been practicing for their Student Led Conferences.  They talked to each other about art works, photos, and what they have been doing in school so far.  Seems that they are now ready to share it!!!  Come, enjoy and celebrate together the successful learning journey.
On Friday everybody enjoyed the first snow this season!  What fun we all had sledding, making snowmen and snow angels.
