03 May Newsletter (Sathorn) 3rd May 2019
Dear Hampton Families,
What a magnificent week we have had. As we continue our journey to reduce, reuse and recycle plastic to help save our seas, each class has thoroughly enjoyed exploring more about protecting sea-life, from corals to critters!
All our children’s learning and experiences will be celebrated, with you, on Thursday 16th May at our unique charity event (8:00am-9:30am in our school garden). Hampton is proud and honoured to be partnering with The Sang Foundation and Precious Plastic; two organisations who we support wholeheartedly in their efforts to bring awareness to plastic use and waste. Awareness is the first step in making positive changes! After all, “the Earth is what we all have in common”, so let’s take care of it! Next week you will receive your official invitation … so … stay tuned and we hope to see you there!
This week saw the Nursery 1 Daisy Class exploring turtles, jellyfish and corals while also discussing the need for us to be especially careful with our rubbish as to not allow these items to harm these amazing creatures and habitats. During their weekly Splash-Play session, the Daisies were very kind and helpful as they untangled some sea creatures from the “rubbish” that was in the pools.
The Nursery 2 Maple Class got creative with their under-the-sea adventure! The Maples enjoyed painting around the table, creating a recycled newspaper whale, experimenting with paint and recycled materials and took a special trip outside to closely examine the garden for items that resemble what can and may be found at the bottom of the ocean. A great display of imagination from our mighty Maples.
The Kindergarten 1 Palm Class used their daily morning Circle Times to have deep discussions about ‘saving our seas’ and protecting our corals! The children all worked together and made their own ‘sea scene’ from common classroom materials. Th Palms even went fishing and used their powerful blows to make a colourful coral picture! The K1 children sure are an inquisitive and independent bunch who are taking great pride in making a difference, even in their own classroom! Thanks for always turning off your lights when leaving the room!
The ever so close-knit and hard-working Kindergarten 2 Oak Class came together as a team to plan, build and implement their own ocean themed sensory bin. Each item was meticulously placed, which resulted in the children taking great pride in their new classroom feature. Their writing, reading and maths skills are soaring to new “depths” while their thought-provoking questions help to drive their daily Morning Meetings.
Keep up the great work Hampton children; you make all of us very, very proud!
Have a lovely long weekend,
Ms. Erin Burney
Head of School
The week wasn’t complete without a 5th birthday celebration!
