We completed this week with a field trip to Bayfront, next to Marina Bay Sands, to observe the structures that we see around us in Singapore. The students noticed that there is a big contrast of older and newer buildings in the skyline and that these can be identified by certain features such as the colours used, the shape of the structures and the materials used to make the structures. This led to some interesting questions such as "why do they make buildings so tall now and they didn't in the past?" "Why are so many buildings made from glass now?" We will continue to explore structures in Singapore and to think about how different cultures have influenced their design.

Happy New Year to those of you who celebrate and I hope that you enjoy the extended weekend. I look forward to seeing the children back at school again on Thursday 11th February dressed in either red or Chinese style clothes to enjoy the Lion Dance.

On Friday 12th February, students can come to school dressed as their favourite book character to celebrate the start of Author Week the following week. There will also be a Book Fair in the Library on Friday from 8am until 4.30pm. See the flyers below for more information.
