Click here for a link to the song words for the end of year concert. The students brought home a yellow colored paper copy of this today. Please encourage your child to read through and sing these songs for reading homework.
Please complete and return the language options for Grade 2 letter that many of you received up at the orientation day. I sent extras home today. This information is crucial to scheduling and staffing for next year.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. See you on Monday!
Here is last week’s news in case you need it:

The photos are excerpts of a book written by James Mollison titled Where Children Sleep.
Have a fantastic weekend!
Happy New Year everyone!
I trust you all had a safe and enjoyable break whether you were here in Chiang Mai, or away. Mr Andy, Jessica and I thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas in Seoul, Korea visiting friends from when we lived there 6 years ago.
We had a lot of students that shared news with the class today. If your child would like to share photos, we welcome them to school anytime.
Back to School
We welcome Oliver Chu back to APIK. Oliver and his family have been living in the USA for the last few months, and it is great to have them back!
I welcomed the whole class back to school on Monday with a 100 word spelling test! Lucky them. In fact all week we have been working extra hard. We finished off our last unit of inquiry Materials and Matter by making more clay creations, but this time here at school. Students needed to tell me some properties of clay, how they changed the clay, and the purpose of their clay creation.
We completed a pre-test for our next math unit, recommenced our guided reading groups, and started writing holiday recounts using the writing process. We finished off the week with a quick lesson on portrait drawing, and began sketching our friends. I can’t wait to see how these artworks turn out!
I am a little behind with uploading photos. I think I still have a bunch from the end of last semester that I need to post, so I will make sure to do that this month.
Show and tell
Tawan, Yaisana, and Ryu may bring something to share to the class on Friday 25th January.
