Newsletter - December 2019
December the last month of the calendar year is here bringing in the cold. After a difficult November with smog and unhealthy air, we hope now to be able to take the children outdoors for half an hour each morning. The temperatures have dropped so please dress the children in warm clothes taking care that they wear caps and socks. If your child shows any signs of cold or flu, please do not send them to school.

Their jackets and caps will be looked after while they are in the building.
All rooms are heated and a warm drink and toast is served mid-morning.

The outside activities will restart and the children will continue with the gardening projects.

We will complete the bird project in the first week of December. They are now listening to the calls of various birds. Six to seven varieties of birds come into the back garden in the early morning and the children are able to identify some of them.

In the second week of December we will begin our Christmas projects and relate the story of the birth of Christ. Mrs. Kutty will narrate the story to each class against the background of a stable and stars. Craft work will focus on the story.
