We visited Siam Ocean World today!
Today has been described as "the best day ever" in K2L!
We had a wonderful time at Siam Ocean World. There was so much to see, discover, do and learn there! Our visit was a lovely end to our topic, "All Creatures Great and Small" and allowed us to consolidate much of the learning that has occurred in recent weeks.
Thank you so much to our parent volunteers who enthusiastically guided our students through the aquarium. Your help was much appreciated!
Please enjoy just some of the many photos taken today.
Today, by popular demand, K2L began learning about small creatures which are called minibeasts, bugs and insects. We decided to explore our garden using magnifying glasses. Each group explored a different area and found lots of little creatures. Please ask your child what he or she found. The photos will help them to remember where they explored and what they found. Perhaps you could have a look in your own garden or balcony at home. You will be amazed at just how many creatures you may find!
Amazing Safari Adventure
We spent Monday and Tuesday making "magical binoculars" in K2L. One student described them perfectly when she said, "when I look through my magical binoculars, I see creatures everywhere. When I take them off my eyes, the animals disappear!"
And this morning, we used them to go on an amazing Safari Adventure around our school campus. The magical binoculars really got our imaginations working. Here are just a few comments made by the children.
'I saw a family of pink birds with a purple feather on the top of their head and love hearts on their tummy!'
"When I look at the very top of the roof, I saw a snake that looks like the Thailand flag......red, white and blue."
"I can see leopard, lion, cheetah, jaguar eating meat there......under the slide. They are fighting together."
The children have taken home their magical binoculars today. Perhaps you can have a look around your garden at home to see what is lurking in the bushes. We would love to hear what you discover!
Enjoy the photos.......
Happy Smile Day from K2L!
It has been a very busy day today!
We had the funniest assembly ever. The teachers made everyone smile with their acts.......some of those teachers just can't dance or sing very well....but they are great risk takers!
Enjoy our photos!!!!
We had such an exciting Thursday afternoon!
Mr A, who is a Physics teacher in the Secondary School, came to visit us and talk about Space Discovery. We had a great discussion on rockets and travelling in space. Mr A then suggested we launch our own mini rockets in the garden. He needed some very sensible helpers to assist him.
Look at our pictures to see what happened.....watch the video clip, too!
One of the rockets got stuck in a tree. Can you think of ways to get it back down?

Making snow in K2L..........
During our topic "All Creatures Great and Small", K2L looked at the Arctic and the polar regions. It was very interesting to find out about the animals who inhabit the coldest regions of our planet and how they cleverly adapt to their harsh environment. Living in South East Asia, it became apparent that many children have not seen or experienced the feeling of snow. So, with the help of a product called "Insant Snow", we gathered around a tuff spot in our classroom, carefully measured out the correct spoonfuls of magical powder, added water and watched in awe as the powder expanded before our eyes and became snow-like in appearance!
I think it was the most popular independent activity in the classroom for the rest of the week!
Enjoy the photos!
Always remember to dress up warmly in the Arctic!
Can you help me build an igloo, please?
What did you say?
