Dolphins home activity for the summer

home activities for summer 2013

Parents/children of the dolphin class

Attached is a list of suggestions for home activities for this summer. This is the last home activities sheet you will receive this year, and the activities are optional, though I would like to suggest you definitely keep up the mental maths (Live mathletics), writing (summer journal) and spellodrome.

Best wishes

Mencia Students work with the Owl and Panda Classes

The Students from the Mencia de Mendoza Year 2 English TTO class have been working closely this half term with the Owl and Panda classes here at ISB.

With help and encouragement from their fantastic English teacher Mrs Bakker they have planned and written a story book for a younger child. The books included the younger childrenĀ“s favourite hobbies, family members and their home countries. It was obvious that the Mencia de Mendoza students had spent a great deal of time and effort getting to know their younger partners!

It was lovely to see the children working so well together.

The finished books were of a very high standard and the younger children loved sharing them with their partners.



Heat Warning…

The weather in the Netherlands takes a drastic turn for the next couple days. This change will remind me of summer in Southern Ontario, Canada.

Which means, HEAT and HUMIDITY!

Please make sure your child dresses for comfort. Have their water bottles nice and full. Sunscreen and hats are a must. We will adjust our day to suit such a vast temperature increase.

Stay cool ISB!

Panda and Dolphin class P.E.

Today The Panda classs And The Dolphin class had P.E. outside. They divided into 3 teams and played some great football.

The girls were also playing well with goals on all sides.

Although a slight confusion as to which direction they should face:-)

A big thank you to all the parents for their incredible culinary contributions! And of course to the children for their hard work producing menus in a different language, learning basic phrases and serving so well!
