November: Bugs, Bugs, Bugs!

There’s so much happening this month, it’s hard to decide where to start! Our theme for the month is “Life: Bugs”. We are going to learn the characteristics of the group of creatures classified as insects and their life cycle. We are also going to have a close look at Cayman bugs and all the weird and wonderful bugs around the world.

Our continent of focus is Australasia, which means that we are practicing locating the continent on a globe, and talking about what makes that continent unique. We will be looking at flags, animals and the landmarks of the continent.

Remember to bring any bug or Australasia related things to Show-and Tell if you have them!

We are also starting our beach walks! These short excursions are a fun way to explore the environment beyond our classroom and playground, and serve several purposes:

1. To prepare children for other excursions, such as our upcoming field trip.
2. To collect beautiful and interesting shells, rocks and other natural artifacts.
3. Beach clean-up! To help foster environmental awareness and responsible stewardship of our planet, we may occasionally go to the beach for the purpose of removing debris/trash washed up on shore.
4. Theme-related investigation. We may go to the beach to further our investigations of our theme.
5. Fresh air and exercise!

We are looking forward to our first field trip on November 8th to Pedro St. James. Please ensure you return the slip with your contact information to us.

Just a reminder that there is no school on November 9th due to the Private School Association Conference and November 12th, as it is Remembrance Day. Enjoy your long weekend!
