The girls and boys of 5.1 decided to show their appreciation to the people who have helped them in the past year. So they used the money they had collected from the sales at the Market day and planned a Thank you tea .
The guests were - the cleaning lady Aunty Sim, Mr James who takes care of the errant bees that like to visit our classroom in the midst of lessons , Mr JE, who comes to our rescue every time we have wireless issues, Mr James who helped us with the Elephant garden, Ms Sophie, the ESL teacher, and Ms Victoria, the lunch lady.
The students planned the menu, bought the food and drinks and cups. Tuva made banana cup capes, Toma arranged the salt cookies on a plate. Many volunteered to be servers. Steven performed a skit to entertain, as did Sasi and Chelsea.
Mirai made the invitation cards, and delivered them to the guests.
Hina made beautiful flowers from origami as gifts for our guests.
Keagan and Sacha managed the music.
As good hosts, the girls and boys chatted with their guests.
View life from the lens of a 10 year old, and it will bring much humour and joy. That sums up my experience with my grade 5 students at ISS.
