Einblick in die Kultur Venedigs

Einblick in die Kultur Venedigs

Im Rahmen unserer Einheit über Kultur haben wir uns in dieser Woche mit den Besonderheiten Venedigs und auch mit venezianischen Masken beschäftigt. Die Schüler hatten sehr viel Freude an der Gestaltung  der eigenen Masken und haben sich sehr viel damit Mühe gegeben! Sehen Sie hier die Ergebnisse unseres kleinen Ausflugs nach Venedig!

ESL Home Reading Folders

Dear Parents and Families

From this week, your child will bring home two new books to read with you. Please return them every Tuesday. Also, please keep them inside the folder to avoid any damage and so it is easy to locate both at home and school.

I recommend that you read with your child two days a week for approximately 5 minutes each day and then discuss the book in German and English.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

 

Ms. Connie

These are some strategies that we will be learning during reading time. This chart might be helpful for you when your child reads at home.

Wir präsentieren unere Kulturplakate

Zum Abschluss der Einheit “Wie wir uns ausdrücken” haben die Schüler heute ihre Kulturplakate vorgestellt.

Vielen Dank allen Schülern, die sich in der letzten Zeit meist sehr engagiert mit ihrer Kultur auseinander gesetzt haben und dies auf ihren Plakaten zum Ausdruck gebracht haben. Vielen Dank allen Eltern, die zu uns gekommen sind und sich die Plakate angeschaut haben sowie mit den Schülern über die Plakate ins Gespräch gekommen sind. Vielen Dank für das wunderbare Frühstücksbuffet mit lauter köstlichen Speisen, die für unsere Kulturen typisch sind. Vielen Dank für die Kommentare, mit denen einige Eltern und Schüler ihre Eindrücke von der Ausstellung auf unserer Kulturwand festgehalten haben. Was für ein gelungener Abschluss für unsere Einheit!

 

 

 

PE Update and Welcome Back!

PE Update and Welcome Back!

Hi Everyone,

Karen and I hope that you have enjoyed your holiday. This week we have focused on getting the students active again, all grade 1 students participated in a series of 6 fitness circuits during their sessions as we prepare for our movement unit for the next 5-6 weeks. During the movement unit the students will use the terminology of ROTATIONS, TRAVEL, BALANCE, and JUMP to describe and label their movements. This unit covers a mixture of gymnastic type movements such as rolls, balances, leaps, and gallops etc and then adapting/modifying them into a small routine  – particular focus for grade 1 will be a high level link with their current story telling unit and looking at the concept of perspective.

Just a reminder that students are encouraged to bring a change of clothes for PE sessions for both hygiene and ease of movement reasons. Time will be given before and after the session to get changed. Any sports clothes are recommended although students often prefer to wear their house t-shirts or proper school PE uniform.

As always both Karen and I encourage families to talk about PE at home and we welcome any feedback, questions, clarifications that you may have as a result of your child’s PE sessions.

Regards Kit Murray and Karen Zheng

The last Art update for 2018

The last Art update for 2018

Our GD1/2 artists were delighted when their abstract clay tiles came out of the kiln for the final time. It is a beautiful sight to behold in our Elementary Library when you see row upon row of bookshelves topped with beautiful clay artwork. Enjoy stopping by to admire them and to read about the meaning behind each one after the Winter Break.

GD1/2 have also begun to learn all about realistic art as they begin to focus on still life subjects and the challenges of drawing and painting what we see, not what we feel or imagine. We are currently being inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe’s flower paintings and colour theory.

Ideas for the break:

  1. Ask your young artist to use complementary colour pairs when colouring over the break. Red and green are one pair so it’s a perfect activity for anyone celebrating Christmas.
  2. Also encourage your child to draw what they can see – an object, a view etc.

Enjoy the break GD1/2 artists. See you in 2019!
