Pi Day

(Special note: can all children please bring PE clothes for House Activities tomorrow. Thank you!)

Well, here we are in Week 5! I'm very happy to be back in Year 1, and Mr. Simpson is almost recovered.
Today we celebrated Pi Day. The children all many different groups in their Houses and went throughout the school, to many classrooms, where they did many different activities. They did activities such as memorising the digits of pi, making 3-D shapes, answering questions about higher or lower numbers, learning about the mathematics of maps, and much more! They worked with older children and sometimes younger children and had lots of fun! I only saw a few children from Year 1 through the afternoon, but more photos will be on the TRIS website at www.tianjinrego.com later in the week.

This week, what will we learn?

We have a new Word Search puzzle outside the class! It has words in it to show all the things we will learn this week. The children all have a picture of it, and they will each get a smiley face (3 :) = 1 house point) if they can find all of the words on the paper.
Here is the Word Search for you to see:
Today we had PE. I'm sorry to say that one Year 1 child lost his PE jacket. We will look for it and hope to find it; but please, can I ask you to make sure that all of your child's clothes have their name and "Year 1" written in them. Thank you.
After school, we had clubs. It was lots of fun in the ICT club. Go to Mr. Kohll's Computer Club page to see the games we played and the work we did. Children will find the "Safari Units" game useful for their maths lessons this week.
This week we will also continue learning about plants in Science. We are very happy that the bean seeds have begun to grow! On Friday we are going to go to the Botanical Gardens; and tomorrow we will begin an exciting new experiment, which the children will love, and which will teach them a lot!
In PSHE, we will learn about police officers and fire fighters. In English, we will work on recounts, describing a real event in sequence. In maths we will learn about "place value" and tens and units. In geography we will learn about being safe and making the local area safe. And finally, Miss Lucey will teach an exciting lesson on a famous Irish holiday on Thursday. On that day, children can come to school in non-uniform if they like - but they have to wear something green if they do!
We'll tell you more on Thursday!
Finally, Harry may be leaving us soon. We're all very sad, but would like to say thank you to Harry for the chocolate presents he brought for us today! Thanks, Harry!

Have a good week, everybody!
