Coming up in April in P1

Well, it looks like spring might finally be making an appearance. I know I am looking forward to the warmer days so we can, maybe, head outside and not just for DPA. We will be starting lights and sound in science so it'd be great to have some sunny days to experiment with sounds, sunlight and shadows outside.

We'll wrap up perimeter and area in math this week. Next up is multiplication and division and measuring elapsed time. In les études sociales, we'll soon be starting le Moyen Age.  I think we'll have a lot of fun learning about les chevaliers, les chateaux and la noblesse.

We've been doing a lot of work with verbs and simple sentence structure in French and I am encouraging students to select French books from the library. If you have a few minutes at home, please ask them to read to you and encourage them to use context clues like pictures and familiar words (les mots amis) to support their comprehension.

I am very excited about a project we are working on with Mr. Higgins. The students have worked very hard and stretched their creativity on this wrap up to our work in the drama workshops. I think you will be very impressed!

Last, but not least, this Wednesday is International Pink Day, a day to celebrate diversity and raise awareness of bullying and discrimination in schools and communities. Swansea students and staff will be putting on the pink to celebrate this important day!
