The children started by singing "The Green Grass Grows" beautifully. They had lots of fun with it. Next week, we'll be learning a new song and story!
Our first lesson was Literacy, in which the children did their spelling tests - well done, they have worked hard at them this week! - and then did writing work about growing plants. The second lesson was Maths, in which the children practiced weighing things on scales, learned about grams, and used rulers to measure in centimetres and millimetres.
At the end of the day, the children were given full-colour Rego Newsletters for you to read. I'm sorry they were only in English. The news is about a recent Polo match (the first Polo match played in the snow in Asia, as reported by Jennifer Cui, sister of Year 1 Ellen!) It also includes mentions of the Valentines Dance tonight, the Rego Swim Meet tomorrow, the forthcoming school theatre, The Wizard of Oz - and the menu for next week at school (delicious as always!)

Have a good weekend! We look forward to seeing you on Monday!
Have a great weekend!

Now in colour!
Last week, six world-class polo teams came together at the Tianjin Goldin Metropolitan Polo Club for the first game of Snow Polo played on the Asian continent.
For the playoff and the finals held last Sunday, the players entered the artificial snow-covered arena in sets of three on their leg warmer-clad, braided-tailed ponies. Well, they say “ponies”, but they really just mean normal-sized (i.e. massively large) horses.
The game for third place (between HK Goldin, the home team, and the French Team) was played first. Four chukkas (periods of play) lasting six minutes each were played. The time between each chukka was used for changing horses as the game’s demand for speed exhausted the ponies rather quickly. France won third place, beating HK Goldin. The final game for the Metropolitan Vase was held between Argentina and England, with England emerging victorious with a score of 7-6 after twenty-four minutes of vicious game play. Many consider polo to be an elite socializing event; here is a photo of our teachers dressed up for it! (Notice Ms. Saul’s dynamic choice of footwear). The club also provided a munchies-satisfying buffet (which alone should make it the new favourite sport for many this season) as well as entertainment of all kinds dur-ing the event. The next major polo event to be held is the Ambassador’s Cup in late March/early April. Be sure to be on the lookout for it!
