Once again, we express gratitude towards our Almighty God, and welcome all our students, staff, parents, community, and international friends to the 7th week of the second academic term. Following our weekly routine, we now bring you an update on the 6th week, which ended on February 15, 2019.
A Quick Recap of Week 5
Since our headmistress, Ms. Joyceline, also conducts classes, she narrated an interesting story to the Carnation class (aged 5 – 6 years) in week 5. The pupils were asked to draw from their own imaginations to provide illustrations. To know more on this, please visit this link.
Week 6 in Review (11 -15 February 2019)
In week 6, the Carnation class continued their creative artwork by making sculptures through sand casting.
We also taught lessons on the roles of parents, family, and members of the community. For our mathematical activities, we explored the measurement of height, and for our language classes, we studied phonic consonant sounds ‘wh’ and ‘th’.
The Sunflower and Morning Glory classes (children aged 2 – 3 and 3 – 4 years respectively) continued their writing of lower-case alphabets from ‘a’ to ‘w’. In phonics, they learnt how to form two and three letters sounds with vowels ‘a’ and ‘e’, such as ‘an’, ‘am’, ‘me’, and ‘he’.
We also held an activity called ‘movement exploration’ through which the children learnt how to dress according to their tribes’ customs.
Miss Abigail Nyani taught the Pansy class (aged 4 – 5 years) lessons on leisure, counting objects in a set, and creative arts, which included imaginative drawings based on a Ghanaian tale of a man named Kweku Ananse. A short version of the story goes like this:
“Once upon a time, there was a man named Kweku Ananse who lived with his wife Okonory Yaa, and four sons – Ntikuma, Etikelenkele, Nakowhia and Efuduwhewhe. Kweku Ananse was smart, but lazy, and never contributed to farm work. One day, he asked his wife to bury him in their farm when he dies. When she agreed, he faked his own death, and his wife honoured his request by burying him in the farm. This way, Kweku Ananse managed to steal the crops and ate them every night. However, he was finally caught, and all the folks in the whole village shamed him for his actions.”
The moral of this story is – Don’t be lazy, greedy and a cheat. The students drew some wonderful pictures from the story.
