I received quite a lot of updates from the English Teacher. She started to try to provide weekly update instead of giving us on monthly basis. Of course at the same time she did provide us one monthly update for March itself too.
Theme: Sounds & Music
They went into details of learning the sounds of various animals, sounds from inside and outside the house. Yvette learnt the different sounds that the favourite pet can produce, as well as farm and zoo animals too. Yvette made mask – she had chosen a sheep and pretended to be her favourite animal while making their sounds with her friends.
The classroom activities taught them to discriminate the sounds that they hear from the surroundings. After they discuss the different sounds from inside the house they went out to have a short trip and investigation about the various sounds that they can hear from outside the house. We enjoyed hearing the “BOOM! BOOM! sound coming from the entrance of the MRT station.
The tots counted and sorted out different coloured marbles. It was difficult to sort all the marbles, however, they really enjoyed it and they wanted to play with this sorting and counting game again and again.
Number 6 – They had fun counting and collecting six objects in the classroom such as 6 books, 6 coloured pompoms, and 6 toy cars. They counted and had a discussion about 6 postcards and six stamps. They learnt that postcard is a rectangular piece of thick paper or thin cardboard intended for writing and mailing without an envelope. They colour and cut out six pretend stamps and used them to decorate our postcards that they are going to deliver to our family and friends by hand.
Fun With Phonics
Letters P, I, N – They reinforced our knowledge of the phonetic sounds /s/,
/a/, /t/, /p/, /i/, and /n/ through the classroom games and several storytelling sessions. They sang songs and practiced writing the letters in such a fun way. They enjoyed sticking star-shaped stickers in our letter i as they follow the arrow as a guide in writing the letter correctly. They even used chubby markers in creating a dot in our n. What a fun way of learning how to write the letters!
Picnic at Toa Payoh Courtyard
During the Let’s Play holiday programme, they went out on a sunny day together with the other N1, PG and N2 classes. The teachers brought a ball, a big parachute, and our healthy food and drinks.
Wang Hao Laoshi guided the tots in our warm up exercise after they settled down at our picnic venue. They work on our patience and listening skill as they
pass the ball to their friend while singing the song which has fast and slow parts. Then, they played with the parachute like how they used to play during their enrichment class. They had our much awaited snacks afterward. They proceeded with the letter hunt with the other N1 classes.
The above are updates for the English lesson, here the update from the Chinese Teacher.
Lastly these are the cooking she did in March. Some she miss it, and some she did not bring home. (Finish eating them in school.)
