The forthcoming week (w/b 13.05.13.) is full of wonderful events and activities, some of which are as follows:
Year 5 Bring, Bake and Buy Sale - Wednesday 15th May
Year 5 are having their annual Bring, Bake and Buy Sale on Wednesday 15th May and we have been invited to visit and support them as we are their Buddy Year Group. We will be visiting the Year 5 shared area at some point between 08:00 and 09:10 to spend our money and help a great cause. Therefore, could the children please bring in a few coins / notes to spend on the items that the Year 5 children will have prepared and organised. For this event, the Year 5 children are currently in the process of collecting their toys, games, books and so forth and bringing them in to school to sell to raise money for their charity, the Good Shepherd Sisters. There will be lots of cakes to buy too! The majority of the items will be sold for 10 and 20 Baht, with only a few slightly higher.
Year 2 Swimming Gala - Thursday 16th May
Over the past few weeks, the children have been preparing for the Year 2 Swimming Gala, which is taking place this Thursday in the 25m Pool. The Year Group will be split into 2 lots of 4 classes and will take part at the following times:
08:00 to 09:30 = 2R, 2J, 2P and 2K
09:45 to 11:15 = 2T, 2M, 2S and 2E
We look forward to seeing as many of you there as are able to make it. The children really enjoy showing off the skills they have learnt in their lessons this year and the support you give on the day makes it that much more special. :-)
Year 1 Thai Temple Maths Fair - Friday 17th May
Please don't forget that Year 1 will be holding a special "Thai Temple Maths Fair" this Friday, May 17th, on the walkway outside Year 1, between 09:30 - 10:15. Year 2 have been invited to attend and play some mathematical games that the Year 1 children have been busy designing and making. They will need to bring in 1, 2, 5 and 10 Baht coins on this day, as each game will cost between 1 and 5 Baht a go. Proceeds will go towards the Year 1 charities - "Friends for All Children" Orphanage and the children of the Klong Toey slum.
As well as all of these fabulous events to look forward to there is also going to be plenty of Science (all about Electricity), Art, DT (both linked to the story of the "Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch"), Mathematics and Literacy activities going on in the classroom - a massively fun learning week!
