4th December 2015

This Friday was the last day for our German student Linda who helped us a lot and became a real friend for all of the teachers and students! Thank you, dear Linda and have a good time continuing your studies back in Germany!


Reminder: On Thursday, 17th December, our children will perform a song during the annual ISR Winter Festival show! You’re all kindly invited to come and watch (e-mails with further details will follow), but we would like to ask you already to provide a red Santa Claus hat for your child for that day, as the Early Years students will turn into little elves!

But now, let’s take a look back at what happened in the Early Years at ISR this week! It has been a week full of exploration and inquiry! We looked at different stories and focused on how the characters feel in certain situations. The children have really started to draw conclusions to their own feelings and we hear more and more reflections about their own emotions.

The Maple group children continued exploring emotions through different art activities. They also continued creating their own stories by using self-made made puppets and different materials provided in the classroom.
In Oaks the students initiated their own creative art reflection after reading the story Big Pig on a Dig by Phil Roxbee Cox. They drew their own maps for a treasure hunt! Our creative art center turned into a busy puppet workshop and all kinds of characters were created, from family members to princesses and monsters! The puppets were also used for some great imaginative play.
In Linden we celebrated Sofija’s birthday with some songs, hugs, high-fives and a delicious cake! Happy Birthday, Sofija! The students continued to show their creativity by making up their own stories and developing interesting imaginative plays. Some have been busy building advanced train tracks adding stations; some used puppets and construction blocks; some have been busy documenting their stories! What a fun week it has been!
