Hello Peacock parents,

 

Information from us, week 17

We have noticed that some children don’t have indoor shoes. Please make sure your child has indoor shoes as it is for their safety. 
Also we noticed not all children have spare clothes in their lockers. 


On Wednesday we have our toy day. As the weather is very nice we would like to organize an ‘outside toy day’. The children can bring an outdoor toy to school to share with the other children. This will be on Wednesday May 7th. If the weather changes and we can’t have the toy day outside we will inform you on Tuesday.

Development talks: We will send the email with the schedule again. Please fill in your name and your child’s name in one of the white boxes.

School closed over summer: The school is closed between week 28-31 (July 7- August 4) and we will not be offering child care. For the Part-time children, the holiday period is 16th June – 18th August. If you require child care, please advise Adriana by April 30 as after this date we cannot arrange care for your child.

 

Our learning

Art and science: The peacocks learn another technique of coloring the eggs using stocking material, different colors and leaves of different shapes. They tied the stocking around the eggs with the leaves pressed between the stocking and the egg.
Next the eggs were boiled for eight mints in colored water and allowed to cool down. When we cut the stocking later, a beautiful pattern of the leaf was imprinted on the egg giving it a fabulous look. The children loved this activity.
In addition to this activity the peacocks also colored the flags of their own country. The template of the flag was given to each child which they colored with the appropriate colors. This was in preparation for the summer party.


Lily: On Friday we had the goodby party for Lily. All the classrooms made something for the Fika. The peacocks made a ‘chocolate ganache cake’ on Thursday.

They where involved in measuring and mixing all the ingredients and were also told about different units used to measure them, mainly dl. We  had great fun while doing this activity! The cake turned out to be really…… yummy.
On Wednesday the children all participated in creating a goodby gift for Lily. All of them painted little strokes in different colors on a fabric. They actually exercised their imagination and painted some little hearts, wavy and zigzag lines or whatever took their fantasy.

Art and architecture: Savi started to build the tower of Pisa during the Italy week. This week the children were involved in painting the  arches of the tower.

Toy day: Wednesday being a toy day also, the children were given an opportunity to talk about their toy. They enjoyed describing their toys. This activity was done with the aim of developing the children’s interest in each others toys and also to build up their confidence.

PS: since the "chocolate ganache cake" turned out to be really yummy we anticipate  some trouble for moms in the form of their kid’s constant pleas to bake the same cake again during the weekend. So, the parents are welcome to contact the peacock teachers for the recipe!
Have a nice week!

Hello Peacock parents,

 

Information from us, week 16

This week we have been working on Easter. 
Last Friday we had an egg hunt, this week we did some Easter art activities. 

School closed over summer: The school is closed between week 28-31 (July 7- August 4) and we will not be offering child care. For the Part-time children, the holiday period is 16th June – 18th August. If you require child care, please advise Adriana by April 30 as after this date we cannot arrange care for your child.

 

Our learning

Circle time songs: In addition to learning about the month, day and year during circle time, the Peacocks are practicing a new ‘days of the week’ song, which is proving to be a great hit.

Birthday circle: On Monday it was Isabelle’s birthday. We celebrate the child’s birthday by walking around the sun, the child holds the earth and we sing the song ‘The earth goes around the sun’. When one circle is finished, one year has passed and we talk about the journey of the child from their birth to the present day. We end the circle by letting the birthday child blow the candles out and we sing the English and Swedish birthday song.  

Art and Craft: The children made Easter baskets with yarn. They put the yarn in glue and stick it on the bottom side of a plastic bottle. This way the baskets get their shape.
For the basket, the children decorated eggs with tissue paper and also made chicks with cotton balls.

The visit to the museum: Yesterday we went to the museum. The children saw a movie at the Cosmonova. This was a different movie from the one we had planned to see. This movie was about the Coral Reefs.
After the movie the children had time to walk through the museum. They saw how tornadoes and clouds are formed, they also saw skeletons of whales and dinosaurs in addiotion to human body parts. They  had great fun in playing interactive games as well .

We would like to thank the parents who have helped us! 
We have Shared with you different pictures of this adventure.

Today,  we watched the movie ‘Hop’. This is a story about an Easter bunny. After the movie we had a very nice Påsk lunch.

Hello Peacock parents,

Information from us, week 15

Continuing with our "know the world" theme, the children were introduced to Italy this week. They were made aware of it’s location, size, language, currency, culture, sports, discoveries and inventions with the help of a map and pictures.

Museum visit: On Tuesday the 15th of April we will go to the Naturhistoriska Museet.
We have requested that the kids be at school no later than 8:15 am as we need to do a toilet run and get them prepared with a vest to catch the bus to the Roslagsbanan. We will need to walk a little from Universiteit till the museum. We aim to be back by 14:00-15:00pm, in time for first pick-ups.

We have decided to split the kids up into groups. The parent in charge of a given group will also be responsible for that group during the period of the outing. These groups you can find on the information board of the peacocks.

Easter: Next week, the school will close at 14:00 hrs on Thursday, April 17th and will be closed on Friday, April 18th and the following Monday for the Easter break. Parents who have not filled in the Easter-Valborg schedule forms must fill this specifying the arrival and departure timing of their children.  The forms can be collected from the Peacock teachers and submitted no later than 15 April.

Our learning

Science: The children were given pictures based on the above mentioned topics and were asked to place them under respective categories. Under the "invention and discoveries" category, the children were told of the origin of the Piano. They also experimented with different sounds using glasses filled with different levels of water. The children were also demonstrated how the sound changed based on the level of water in each cup. All in all, playing the "cup piano" turned out to be an enjoyable interactive experience for the kids.

Treasure Box: To give the peacocks a feel of Italy they were introduced to some things typical of Italy. In this fun filled activity, the children were shown a clay bowl from Grottaglei region, glasswork from Murano, leather goods, and a Foulard scarf. They were also explained what made these items so special along with a little history for each of them. The peacocks enjoyed this activity thourougly.

Food: Keeping in view that no education concerning Italy is complete without “Pizza”, the peacocks were also introduced to Italian cuisine through “Pizza baking” activity. The children, under guidance, spread the sauce and sprinkled different cheese toppings on the pizza bases. Through this activity the kids were also made aware of the special place Cheese occupies in the Italian food. The kids loved their “Pizza”.

Motor Skills and math activity: This activity was also planned according to the week’s theme with the aim of further improving the familiarity with Italy’s Map. From the map of Italy, it’s different states were individually cut and distributed amongst the children. These pieces had the soft side of Velcro stuck to them. The activity was designed as a picture puzzle wherein the kids had to match and stick these pieces in the opposite side of Velcro stuck to the Italian map template. This activity not only made the children exercise their shape differentiation skills but also served in making the kids more familiar with the shapes of the states of Italy.

Art: As Italy is famous for it’s great Architecture , we picked the most famous Leaning Tower of Pisa from amongst it’s many other great buildings for our Art and Craft model. The kids used clay and paper to create a model of Leaning Tower of Pisa. The peacocks had great fun while doing this activity.

Language: In addition, the peacocks were also given a “super crash course” in Italian language in which they learnt some basic phrases like "hi (saluto), bye ( ciao)”, “my name is (mi chamo), thank you (grazie), teacher(maestro)…….”, etc. They also colored the flags in Italian colors.

Charlie: Today it was Charlie last day with the Peacocks. He had become quite close with the Peacocks children. They also presented Charlie with a beautiful card, which they had made themselves. We want to thank Charlie for his time with us.
