Newsletter 9.11.18

Highlighting their activities, and giving a brief explanation on how this helps your child develop, we hope that you will be able to understand a little more about the academic processes involved in the children learning English as a Second Language (ESL).

Shining Stars


The end of Halloween, seems to mark the start of Christmas and New Year themes. The alphabet is consistently being revised and learnt, as well as the core topics of colours, shapes, and number, but a decidedly festive theme has permeated the group. They have been moving to “Jingle Bells”, “Little Snowflake”, and other Christmas classics to get them in the mood for the festive season. Santa painting, and Christmas tree crafts have been done by the youngest group, and their “abstract” work is a pleasure to see!


Happy Faces



As with the slightly younger group, the letters “D” and “G” were the focus of the week, and appropriate at that. Following this musical week, D for Drum and G for Guitar helped the kids identify letters with the theme. Christmas songs were also popular, as we start our preparation for winter performances.

A few mini crafts were also made with the children using a mix of paints, paper, card, pencils, and whatever they could find in our supplies!


Cherry Smiles


A very musically oriented week has seen the children listen, and dance to, a variety of music. The group has particularly enjoyed some classic Rock’n’Roll Christmas music, and we catch them humming some familiar tunes in their free time.


The letters of the week have been “D” and “G”.




The oldest group have looked at the fluctuating weather and their outdoor environment. They have been noticing the leaves fall from the trees as we transition into winter, as well as how the weather effects what we wear and how we react.


The group are also starting to learn some festive pieces. Watch this space to find out more soon!
