Dear Plum Blossom Parents,
With Spring in the air the flowers are beginning to bloom on the trees and the children have been excitiedly observing the changes happening in our school environment. We have been watching the plants beginning to sprout in our classroom and we are excited to start planting vegetables and flowers in our Inquiry Garden outside in the next few weeks.

This week we welcomed Tian-Tian, our newest member of the Plum Blossom class. She has settled in so well and has made many new friends who have been excited to show her around and teach her the routines of our class. It has been amazing to observe the compassionate and caring way the children have helped our new children.

For our Unit of Inquiry on Relationships, we have been completing work on our family trees. All children have created their own tree, and there has been rich and interesting conversations between children as they share photos of their families. Some of our older children also engaged in writing about times they spend with friends and family. They chose a favorite memory of a special day, on a trip or vacation with the people they love and drew pictures to illustrate them. Our writers are becoming confident and enthusiastic story-tellers!

We hope you have a wonderful weekend, and very much look forward to seeing you all at our unit Celebration on Tuesday 2nd April at 13:45 in our classroom.
See you then, Ms Emma, Ms Kristen and Ms Daisy

亲爱的梅花班的家长您好!
随着春天的到来,鲜花开始在树上绽放,孩子们兴奋地观察着我们学校环境中发生的变化。我们一直在观察教室里开始慢慢发芽的植物们,接下来的几周内孩子们将会在小花园里开始种植蔬菜和花卉

本周,我们欢迎梅花班的新成员Tian-Tian。她很快的适应了新的环境并且结交了很多新朋友,孩子们都很高兴地帮助她适应新的环境以及热情地告诉她班级里的日常规则。当老师看到我们的孩子友好地热情的帮助Tiantian,我们真为他们而感到骄傲啊!关于关系这一研究单位,所有的孩子们都创造了自己的家庭树,在分享他们家人的照片的同时并与他们的朋友进行了丰富而有趣的对话。我们一些年龄较大的孩子通过绘画和书写的形式来讲述他们与朋友和家人一起度过的美好时光。他们选择了一个特别的日子与他们喜爱的人一起旅行或度假时最美好的记忆。我们的小小作家们正在成为自信而热情的故事讲述者!

我们希望您度过一个美好的周末,非常期待在4月2日星期二13:45在梅花班的单位庆祝活动中与大家见面。
