It is hard to believe that we are nearly half way through the school year. Time really does fly when you are having fun! February was a busy month. We continued to learn about Winter, and we celebrated friendship with Valentines Day. We learned that being a good friend means developing skills such as cooperation, sharing, giving and accepting compliments and apologies.
We all enjoyed reading a range of stories about different characters (dinosaurs, aliens, pirates and monsters) that love underpants! In class, we talked about our favourite designs and the children had fun designing their own underpants. Our skating lessons continued with Ms. Donella, and the teachers were so impressed with the progress that the children made over a short period of time. Music lessons started up again with Ms. Melissa, which we all enjoy so much!
March brings us many wonderful projects. We will continue to learn about animals, moving our focus to new life and spring animals as we get ready for the first day of Spring. We will also celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and discuss the customs and traditions around this celebration.
