    YEAR 6 BOUNCE TRIP

    LIBRARY

    EID MUBARAK On the occasion of Eid Al-Fitr Al Mubarak, we would like to express our best wishes and extend our greetings on this happy occasion.

    On Thursday 21st June, Year 5 will be hosting an Enterprise Day. They have worked hard this week in order to prepare for the day; planning, designing and creating products to sell or games for customers to play. Each team had to come up with a team name, which would also work for the name of their stall. Year 5 had to put their mathematical and entrepreneurial minds to the test, ensuring their spending didn’t go over 50AED and to cost their items correctly in order to make a profit on the day. Each year group will have the opportunity, during the day, to visit the stalls and buy a product of their choice, a cake from a cake stall or have a go at one of the games created. All money raised on the day will go to the Red Crescent.

    On Thursday next week our Year 6 children will be going on their trip to Bounce. Please can you remind children that they must have brought in the waiver form from Bounce, this is a standard form that many of you will have signed before if your child has gone to Bounce in the past. Also, for the children’s own comfort, we request that children come dressed for school on Thursday in their school PE kit.

    Please note that the library will be closed from the 24th of June until the end of the Term. The students will therefore be unable to borrow any library books during this time. Any outstanding library books will result in your child’s end of year report not being released. If you are unable to locate the missing library book(s), a fee of 50 AED is payable per book to enable us to clear the student’s library account. This money needs to be paid in at the Library to either Mrs Farooq or Mrs Chettri.

    Dear Parents,

    ‘Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers’. Charles W. Elio

    Why is reading so important?

    From research we know, that reading for pleasure makes a big difference to children’s educational performance. Evidence suggests that children who read for enjoyment every day not only perform better in reading tests than those who do not, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of other cultures.

    In fact, reading for pleasure is more likely to determine whether a child does well at school than their social or economic background!

    MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL, MRS. FISHBOURNE

    ISSUE NO.35 JUNE 13TH 2018

    From reading children will…

    1) learn new things

    2) have a better understanding of the world

    3) better understand themselves academically, socially and emotionally

    4) understand a different points of v iew

    5) gain experience from others

    6) improve their skills in c o m m u n i c a t i o n

    7) make additional connections in their brains

    8) increase their imagination and creativ ity

    This week, as we move towards the end of the year, we have reviewed our children’s ‘in year library book usage’ and I am excited to share with you our statistics.

    Reading at The Pearl in numbers …

    Over 48,000 books in the school

    Over 17,000 books in the library

    15,096 different library books borrowed this year

    47,936 checkouts from the library

    This is 5/1th of the 252,001 total checkouts across the Aldar Academies

    This article from the World Economic Forum is an interesting read for anyone who would like to learn about the reading habits of successful people like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg or Oprah Winfrey.

    https://www.weforum.org/agenda/-9/07/2017of-the-most-successful-people-share-their-r e a d i n g - h a b i t s

    Please be aware that the content is hosted outside the UAE and may not be in line with our religious, cultural and social sensitivities.

    At The Pearl, we encourage children and staff who are leaving at the end of the school year to donate a Legacy Book. This does not need to be a new book but could be an old favourite. These books are added to our library with a bookplate to remind us of them.

    If you would like to leave a Legacy Book, please bring it to Mrs Farooq or Mrs Chetri our librarians who will help you to fill in the bookplate.

    On Wednesday 20th June we will be hosting two combined Parent Workshops entitled Positive Parenting and Summer Holiday Educational Ideas. In response to parent feedback, we are piloting an evening workshop. In addition, the session will be videoed and released to parents who are unable to attend .

    Finally, I wish you all Eid Mubarak and remind you that we expect all children to be in school at 7.30am every day until the end of term, Thursday 5th July.

    This week we have been thinking about Eid and how it is celebrated around the world. We made Eid cards for our families and finished our collection for the ‘Gift of Education’.

    In Maths, we reviewed 2D and 3D shapes. The following link has a nice activity that can be completed on a laptop or desk top computer.

    In Phonics we introduced the sounds ‘z’ and ‘x’ and reviewed all the sounds covered so far; linking sounds to letters and identifying the initial sounds in words.

    We have been learning the letter (Ya) with the word (Yad) Hand.

    INDEPENDENCE

    In preparation for the children’s transition to Year One, we are encouraging the FS2 children to be as independent as possible. May we please ask that you allow your child to take their own belongings in to class each morning and put them away in their cubby by themselves. At home, you can help by giving your child more responsibility with their homework or some simple household chores, along with allowing them to dress and undress independently.

    In English this week, the children have been learning about the suffixes s, er and est. They have been finding meaning to these words and writing sentences that include them.

    In Mathematics the children have revisited number problems with a special focus on adding and subtracting time. They have used clocks to count forwards and backwards in hours and half hours, using this strategy to solve a range of word problems. In Topic we have continued looking at people we celebrate and the children have enjoyed using their research skills to find out facts about them. They have now started to use this information to create fact files of these key personalities.

    NEXT WEEK

    In English the children will have a chance to write about their wonderful time during Eid Al Fitr. They will focus on using correct punctuation in their sentences, as well as using connectives and openers to make their sentences interesting to read.

In Topic, we will be starting to design our Tudor Houses. We would like the children to bring in two boxes, of different sizes, to school. For example, a cereal box and a tissue box. The boxes do not need to be large. In Science, we will continue experimenting using Materials and testing what materials are most suitable for particular uses.

    What a fantastic week we’ve had here in Year 3 – well done everyone for working so hard.

    This week in Maths, we’ve started exploring coordinates. We have read coordinates and then plotted our own on a grid. We’ve then challenged the children’s knowledge further by applying these new skills to some reasoning problems and a Battleships board game.

    In English, we’ve turned ourselves into advertisers and explored persuasive writing through posters. We’ve explored the key language needed to help persuade someone and had lots of fun exploring ‘Hyperboles’.

    We’ve all been scientists this week and explored light and finding sources of light. We’ve then extended this investigation into finding man-made and natural sources of light.
