After school yesterday, the children told me there are a number of books to bring the next day as the teacher would be collecting them for safe-keeping so as to lighten their schoolbag. Basically, all activity books & workbooks are submitted to the teacher, including files, drawing blocks & some exercise books & jotter books.
I made up a trip down during Rachel's recess time today and the school actually brought forward the recess time by 10 mins, so the students have a whooping 40 mins of break. I suspect the reason behind this was that the teachers noticed some students having difficulty finishing their noodles or rice within 30 mins during recess yesterday, hence they gave further allowance.
Below pics were of Rachel playing a game with her buddy & friends. ' Pepsi Cola 1 2 3 '
For those of you who are unsure how the game goes:-
Stand in a circle, holding hands.
As you shout out Pepsi Cola 123, jump 3 steps backwards, letting go of you hands too.
The gist of the game is to try & step onto someone's feet before they step onto your feet. Once your feet gets step on, you are out of the game.
