18 Jan Newsletter (Sathorn) 18 Jan 2019
Dear Hampton Families,
Firstly, I thank you all for your support and cooperation as we adjust our daily schedules due to the unhealthy air quality in Bangkok.
We will continue to monitor the AQI each day to ensure that we keep our children happy and healthy at all times!
A little extra time spent indoors did not stop the Hampton children from exploring, tackling and conquering new adventures and experiences!
The minibeast and garden fun has continued for each of our classes.
The Nursery 1 Daisy Class has been marching like ants and wiggling like caterpillars.
They have strengthened their fine motor skills by building and constructing their own art pieces which collectively help to bring their classroom displays to life.
Next door in the Nursery 2 Maple Class, buzzing could be heard as the children learned all about bees!
They demonstrated great concentration and focus as they created yellow/black stripped patterns.
The children also worked together as a team to make a giant spider who happily rested on their homemade web!
Upstairs in the Kindergarten 1 Palm Class, the children have been investigating minibeasts found in the dirt like snails!
Story times, whole class discussions and an informative video clip all led to the children showing off their inquisitive natures by asking lots of questions!
In addition to their bug fun, the Palms have pushed on with their Jolly Phonics programme and laughed like lions as they pretended to lick lollipops for the letter ‘Ll’ sound.
Next door to the Palms, the Kindergarten 2 Oak Class has continued to learn about planting and gardening all the while practising their sight words, reading skills, Maths knowledge and ICT expertise!
As part of their World Investigation time, the Oaks learned an important lesson this week regarding trial and error techniques when trying to perform an experiment.
A great discussion was had at the end, when after a few attempts, their experiment didn’t go as planned.
A truly wonderful week exploring life in a garden … just 4 days more of minibeast fun and then we will all come together to celebrate ‘Minibeast and Creepy Crawlies Day’!
We do hope to see you on this day; please see the invitation at the end of this week’s newsletter for more information.
A big thank you for joining our After School Club Fair this past Wednesday, 16th January.
Here the children were able to practise kicking at Taekwondo, building with Bricks 4 Kidz, stretching with yoga, transforming with face paint with Art and creating a yummy concoction with A Little Something Cooking School.
We greatly look forward to our Term 2 After School Clubs commencing next week, 21st January!
Thank you all for your participation!
Wishing you all a restful weekend,
Ms. Erin Burney
Head of School
