Friday May 27

On Monday we had a visit from our boarder buddy, Liesan. She has finished her exams and is off to University in America. The children presented her with three decorated elephants and she loved them! Good luck, Liesan, we will miss you and wish you all the best for your future!

We have had a successful start to swimming. The children are reminded to bring their swim suits, swim cap, goggles and towel each Monday and Friday.

We participated in a fun Grade 1 to Grade 2 transition activity with Grade 2RCo.  We went on a scavenger hunt with some friends from Grade 2. The children in Grade 2 showed us all the special places that they visit around the school during their week. When they had found each location they took a selfie with an ipad!

On Wednesday we had a wonderful Kids Up Front presentation by Felix. We learned all about American Independence Day and all the different celebrations that happen on July 4th. We decorated a bicycle for a parade, coloured a flag, drew fireworks and sampled some special Fourth of July treats - hot dogs and popsicles! Well done, Felix!

On Thursday we wished our Kuma Ambassadors, Conrad, Harrison, Milo, Rocco, Ava and Maddi, along with their parents, safe travels as they departed for Cambodia to see our friends at Kuma. We look forward to hearing about your adventures upon your return.

One of the project that we worked on as a class was a video that our friends from Kuma had requested that we make. They wanted to see what a day in the life of a Grade 1 student was like at UWCSEA. So we are proud to present the finished movie here on our blog!
