Please be reminded that the Singapore Nursery Krabi school day starts at 8.45am. It is important for the children to be here before 8.45am as it gives them a chance to settle at the start of the day. They communicate with their peers and organise themselves for the day ahead. In Nursery, our structured play, social and interactive activities start from 8.45am. This is an important time of day for Nursery students so that they can comfortably say their goodbyes at the door, settle into class and develop play and social skills in a timely and positive manner.
Next week on Monday we will celebrate Loy Krathong in our school. The students have been preparing for this event since last week. This project is led by our Primary student Katya. This is an another project By Students For Students. Where they will plan and execute the project. The school and the teachers will not directly get involved in this project. This is our way to instill leadership skills, ownership and a sense of belong to the school. Eventually after the project, Katya will have to write a report and we will share this on our website
Development of numeracy concepts and skills in preschool maths involves helping children know. Then they will use the concepts and skills in ways that relationships and connections are formed and then apply them meaningfully in their daily experiences.Counting numbers alone makes the students uninterested and not able to listen. So we have gone through activities that will get them more interested. We had activities like completing the image of a fish by choosing the same and correct numbers written on it. Also, we had counting objects like toy eggs and dropping them into the correct holes from the box. Explaining once again that addition is a combination of two addends and counting them together as a sum.
Students were taught the concept of hard and soft by touching different things. They also enjoyed sorting the things in order. Assisting them to discover things from the environment helps their senses to develop too. Preschool Science is very important for Nursery children.
This week in Chinese class the kids learned basic Chinese and Chinese numbers. In the class, the teacher gave them directions to speak with the teacher and let them match pictures of Chinese words and numbers. The kids are leaning fast and Teacher Xin is most please with their progress.
