Welcome Back for Term 3!

Dear parents, families and carers,

Welcome back for the third and final term of the 2016-17 academic year. I hope that you all had a pleasant Songkran break and wish you a happy and prosperous Thai new year.

Our new topic for the last term of the year is one we have all been looking forward to—Ancient Egyptians. We will learn about the rise and fall of one of history’s most intriguing and prolific civilisations. We will look at their daily life, religion with their many gods, art, society, culture, and of course, their amazing architecture such as the Great Pyramids which still leave a lasting impression on us to this day.

In English, we will be looking at myths and legends, which will go hand in hand with our topic work. We will study various fantastic tales, characters, and creatures which we will use as inspiration for our own writing. We will also study instructional texts and poetry in the second half of the term. We will continue on with our grammar, spelling, and reading comprehension work.

In Maths, we will be revising a lot of what we have covered in the previous 2 terms, particularly to do with the 4 operations, time, fractions, measurement, and data handling, as well as covering some new content such as 7 and 9 times-tables, angles and rotation, direction and sorting shapes.

The term has started with good energy and all of the students appear well-rested and ready to learn! A busy few weeks are coming up with several TISAC events in May, so please be sure to keep a look-out for notices and letters going home in case your child is participating.

There are also some holidays (no-school days) on the horizon, so please make a note of the important dates listed to the right of this page. Please also note that Coronation Day (formerly May 5th) has been moved to July, and won’t affect our school calendar. Lastly, the end of year Key Stage 2 (years 3-6) production will be on the 15th of June, so we look forward to seeing you all then!

Best wishes,
Damian Porter.
