We thank God for a successful week and once again we welcome our students, staff, parents, community members and our international supporters to the 3rd week in the 2nd term of 2018/2019 academic year.
The previous week had been wonderful with various lessons taught and activities held in classrooms. This included revised lessons taught in the previous term.
Kindergarten classes, just to mention this, the lessons were on:
- Numerals and number names from zero to twenty (0 – 20)
- Counting in 10s and ones
- Construction of two and three letter word sentences
- Phonics, vowel sound; a, e, i, o, u.
- Basic needs: food, water, clothing and shelter.
Our students are now able to take steps in problem-solving, reasoning, and numeracy. We ensure our children here at PEI are developing confidence in their mathematical ability and grow to love the discipline beginning in the Foundation Stage.
Through a wide range of practical activities using toys, games, natural and manufactured objects, as well as materials, rhymes, and songs. The children who have taken these steps will begin to explore mathematical concepts and to further develop skills.
