Autumn Has Arrived!

Autumn has arrived! A season of colourful, falling leaves! Students have been noticing the leaves on the playground, and they are as beautiful as summer flowers! The children were also excited to find some real autumn treasures (round chestnuts) in the playground. They have been collecting, playing and counting them!
Have a look at what our little students have been doing this week enjoying school and welcoming Autumn?

This week Autumn reached the Oak classroom! Students were curious to discover different forest treasures on the table! They used their five senses by smelling and tasting apples and quinces! Children explored colourful autumn leaves by sorting them by size. Reflecting on autumn's colours and treasures, they became little painters and created pictures. Autumn can be so colourful!

This week in Linden class started looking at the changing colours outside. We continued to work with numbers to 5 singing number songs. We also talked about our families and how all families could look different. This week we spend some time reminding ourselves about being kind and caring and what it means in the class environment.

Maple group children were happy to explore autumn treasures such as sun flower seeds, chestnuts, acorns, colorful leaves. As an art activity, the children looked at autumn leaves and painted maple leaves with watercolors. They built small and big group relations through numerous activities in our classroom learning centers. Please, see the pictures!

Reminder: Older students are going on a field trip to the Forest at ‘Bumbu Kalniņš’ on Monday, 26th September. They will leave the school at 9:15 am and will come back at approximately 2.00 pm in the afternoon.

We will celebrate Book days on Thursday (6th October 2016) and Friday (7th October 2016)! It’s an exciting day for the whole school community! Please talk to your child about their favourite book character! On Thursday everybody in the school will come dressed up as their favorite book character, and we will enjoy seeing all the different costumes during the big parade in the gym. The parade will start at 8:45 am!

We would love to have some parent readers visiting our classroom! If you would like to take part in this fun event, please let us know!
