Week 8 Prep Update

Dear Parents,

One week to go! Thank you to all the parents that came to the Student Led Conferences. I’m sure you’ll agree your child did a wonderful job. It was such a fabulous opportunity to see all the learning and progress your children have made so far.  It is also a terrific way to celebrate their successes.

 

WHAT’S HAPPENING IN OUR PREP CLASSROOMS?
LITERACY:

We are continuing set 3 of the phonemes and camera words. Learning these will help your child read many more words and texts.

SPEAKING & LISTENING

Next week’s focus is free choice.

MATHS

In Maths we have been consolidating our understanding of data, time, 3D objects and mass.  We are beginning to introduce the concept of addition and number. Students will demonstrate their thinking through drawing, using concrete materials, acting it out and using tables.

SCIENCE

In Science the children are consolidating their knowledge of the weather to make their own weather report. They will be linking the changes in the daily weather to the way we modify our behaviour and dress for different weather conditions.

LAST DAY

Friday 21 June is our last day of Term 2. As per usual the children will finish school at 12pm. Therefore, there will no cafeteria lunch provided on this day. You should still send the children to school with snacks. Buses will run from 12pm. Each child can come in ‘mufti’ clothes (casual clothes) for $20 or they may wear regular school uniform.

REPORTS

The Semester 1 Reports will be uploaded to the TASS Parent Lounge on 14 June, at 1:00pm. This is before Secondary reports will be released to ensure we don’t overload the system. It also aligns with practices implemented at the end of 2018. As a school, we continue to strive towards making decisions which are environmentally responsible and a reduction in printing and photocopying of reports is one such example.

You will be able to view and download the report by following these steps:

  1. Access the AISHK Parent Lounge through the school website   www.aishk.edu.hk
  2. Log onto the AISHK Parent Lounge through your personalised login (If you are unsure of this, please contact the general school office   info@aishk.edu.hk)
  3. Go to Academic Reports (on the left panel)
