Dear parents ,

Recommendations for swimming class tomorrow ( 3 B) :

  1. ·        Please, remember to send your child in warm clothes.  We will walk to the building which is close to Abraar School.
  2. ·        Please bring a swimming suit, a towel and a bag to hold the wet clothes.
  3. ·        No shower is to be done after swimming. So, a shower at home is to be recommended to remove the chlorine we may have in the pool. 
  4. ·        Parents are welcomed to volunteer .We thank them for their involvement in the safety of children which is our first priority.

Spelling lists and dictation:(3A&3B)

  The spelling booklet I gave to your child will be used for the whole school year insha’Allah. Ii is a good idea for grade 3 students to have a habit checking his/her spelling lists without having to write lists on the agendas every week .This would save a lot of learning time . Here are the instructions that are on page 5 of the booklet. There is only a modification for Friday :

Monday: Write each spelling word three times.
Tuesday: Write your spelling words in alphabetical order.
Wednesday: Choose two of your spelling words.
Write a sentence using each of them.
Friday: A dictation done by the teacher. It contains 2 sentences containing 2 words in the assigned weekly list.  (The teacher can dictate 4 sentences if time permits)
          I thank the students who submit their homework on time (before Friday). (The student of the week certificate or a toy is offered for the student who collects most points in the class chart)

Today's updates :
Social studies: we learnt how the pioneers cured some illnesses and compared this briefly with modern days .
Writing: Children learnt revision and proofreading marks and applied this on their fables .
Nasheed : « Mountains of Makkah» by Zain Bhikha . Here are some of the lyrics
Oh Mountains of Makkah, what can you say
Of the day that Abraham passed your way
And He was instructed by God to build
A House of peace where people will pray
Art: We prepared the Eid Cards. They will be offered to you tomorrow insha ’Allah.
Drama: We have started with scene one. The narrator and the 2« aboriginals» rehearsed their roles and had great ideas concerning the costume, the movement on the stage and the way of acting.
Eid Moubarak
