Thank you for your continued support over the year and for attending our varied Friday morning sessions. The children love to welcome you into their classroom and share their learning with you. Last week, the children were thrilled to share their love of messy play, drawing, building and games. We hope you enjoyed yourselves!
Following Farm De Lek’s visit, the Rocket Class really enjoyed buying the organic eggs from Ms Chompoo, our egg seller. Each of us brought in 20 baht for the eggs and we had to carefully carry them back to the classroom as they were very fragile. We compared our eggs and noticed that some were different colours and different sizes. Claire made a egg tally chart so we can decide what to do with our lovely eggs. Even though glow in the eggs was the most popular, unfortunately this experiment didn’t work so we had lots of fun dying the eggs to make them look like dinosaur eggs instead and peeling and mashing some hard boiled eggs! We also cooked some of eggs and they tasted delicious. Thank you Farm de Lek for our eggs, we had a eggcelent time with them.
The Sailboats class continue to enjoy our days filled with lots of action and friends. We love to build together highlighting our imaginative creations. We also love pretending that we have shops and when Farm de Lek came to visit, we looked forward to buying eggs!
Look at us!
Following our visit from Farm de Lek, the children each brought some eggs for 20 Baht. As a class, we decided how to use these and Jets wanted to do an experiment as well as bake rainbow cupcakes. The children were great at predicting what would happen during the experiment and we were so proud of their individual ideas. They weren’t afraid to get messy either whilst discovering the results. Before baking, the children worked so well as a team to write the ingredients list and instructions needed for our rainbow cakes.
The Rockets have really enjoyed having their families join them for our ‘Come and Learn’ Soft Starts on a Friday morning this term. We have been keen to share everything that we do in the mornings including making pictures using rainbow coloured sand, constructing using the magnetico and enjoying stories together. Thank you for joining us this term.
The submarines have had an eggcelent time this week! We all bought a fresh egg with our 20 baht and thought about what we could use them for.
The eggs came from our friends at Farm De Lek and sparked lots of interesting questions about how eggs are made, which eggs make chicks and what the inside of an egg looks like! Do you know that a chicken can lay 265 eggs in one year!
We had lots of discussions about what we could do with the eggs and decided to complete a couple of different experiments with them! Come and look in our classroom to see what we are doing with them.
We have enjoyed experimenting with instruments and even making our own! Different timbres of sound have been explored and EY2 children have been learning how to create different dynamics and play at different tempos. Bands have been created, rhythms have been invented and performed and lots of musical fun has been had by many.
EY2 had great fun with the animals from Farm De Lek! We fed the ponies some carrots, stroked the dog and watched the ducks and chickens waddling and pecking in their pen. It was interesting to learn about the animals, such as how to care for them, what they like to eat and what they do and don’t like.
