Messeage to Parents about Healthy Snacks

Dear Parents/Guardians,

At English Modern School we work hard to ensure that students’ minds and bodies are ready for learning each day and eating healthy at school can positively affect children’s behavior in the classroom. Students must be prepared and energized, in order to be ready for success in the classroom.

School meals (lunches and snacks) should contain vegetables, fruit, and healthy natural juice drinks. Not confectionery (chocolates, sweets, or sugary snacks). As a school, it is part of our responsibility to help children learn how to eat healthily. Please make certain that your child is coming to school with fruits for snack and a healthy balanced lunch for the second. By helping them start healthy habits early in life, we can help reduce our children’s’ health risks and increase their chances for longer, more productive lives. break.

Kind Regards,

Oronde (Mr.)

The Great Secret Project

The students in 3-8 were given a STEAM challenge this week to support our study of Explorers. What if.... You were stranded on a deserted island? What might you have seen? What might you need in order to survive?

The students used their imaginations and understanding of survival skills to write letters to each other and then set them a sail in the mini ocean. Loads of fun, and imaginative sense of wonder...

Aging Paper for our Stranded SOS Letters

We used coffee to give the paper an old and weathered appearance

Careful: The water is still hot...

What was the effect it had on the Paper? Was this a physical or chemical change?
