Field Day is coming up on Friday, June 8th, and we are looking for volunteers to help run some of our fun activities for our Nursery and Preschool students. If interested, please sign up by clicking on the link below:
Thanks for your help and support! Field Day is not possible without you!
The Motor Skills Committee
The motor skills committee asked us to post the above sign up genius for volunteers for field day. Please be aware that Nursery B102 does not make it to the events inside in building B if you are signing up and hope to see our class.
We begin in the sand room and work our way around to the front (all outside games) and end up with the water activities soaking wet. After that we have the snack station outside (water melon) and then head inside to the classroom to change out of wet things, toilet children and do nappy changes. Children may also eat their snack from home if they are hungry. By this time, the children are usually pretty tired and done with the physical activities.
Nursery is planning a field trip to Yili Park located in our Neighborhood, on Monday, May 21. We will be departing at 9:00 am and returning to school by 10:30am. This is an extension of our learning in the Nursery Program’s How We Organize Ourselves Unit. We will have some time to tour the park and make a map of our Journey as we take notice of gardens, the functions and attributes of a park, and note different jobs and tools that contribute to the maintenance of a park. A parachute will act as an activity from our Play unit, as well as a picnic blanket. We will be taking school buses, and will have our snack in the park. Students (and parents) are asked to bring a healthy packed snack and water bottle. We are hoping to have one adult for each child, so please consider joining us on this fun outing.
Your child will need to bring or wear:
-A sun hat
-Weather appropriate clothing + an extra set in their backpack.
-If your child wears nappies, please bring an extra one in the backpack.
-A small bucket or bag for collecting items around the park
-Sunscreen (as necessary)
-Running shoes without laces
-A water bottle
-A healthy snack that can be eaten at the park
Time is running out! Be sure to get your tickets for a fun evening with our SCIS community at the ECE Art Auction. Beautiful art pieces created by our own ECE artists will be auctioned off live by our emcee for the evening, Melanie McClure.
Silent auction packages include a four-day cruise to Japan, Shanghai Insiders jeep tour, brunch packages, hotels stays and more. Spa treatments & lunch at the Westin, vouchers for Sherpas and Din Tai Fung will be raffled off throughout the evening.
Tickets can be purchased at the ECE front desk or Thursday, May 10 at the Kindergarten and Grade 1 concert on the Hongqiao main campus. Be sure to get your tickets so you don’t miss this fun filled evening!
In honour of Family Friday this week (The Week of the Young Child), Nursery is inviting families along with their children, to choose something related to your home culture to send in for your child to share at circle time with our class. This will be an informal sharing, and if they feel shy, we can share it for them. This can be and is not limited to; a photo of your family in your home country, or a special keepsake item, small instrument, an article of clothing or a special book that your child likes to read or look at that is written in your home language. The choice is yours! Please keep the sharing item small enough that they can manage it in a separate bag, or something that fits into their backpack. If you would like to attach a little note to the item, we can share out what you have written.
Please look at the menu under “EVENTS” and drop down to Week of the Young Child to see what is going on in our classroom this week. I will add to the page each day this week.
