Week two term II 2010

This is the second week of 2nd term. lt has been rainy and outdoor activities have been limited. We’ve had rather warm and indoor learning, despite long distance most pupils braved the rain to be at the school on time.

I was able cover the topic, ‘properties of matter’ in standard four {fourth grade} science. The pupil’s response was positive as we did experiments on sinking and floating and pressure in liquids.

In standard six {sixth grade} English, we’ve have been reading the books “Matilda” dwelling on spelling and vocabulary at the same time. We can’t avoid to lose a minute because this is a class we are preparing for our first Kenya Certificate Of Primary Education exam in 2012 as a school.

Mining is a topic we’ve been covering in standard five {fifth grade} social studies. We dwelt only on a few minerals mined in Kenya e.g. diatomite, fluorspar, soda ash and limestone and their importance to our economy.

We are looking forward to a very busy term ahead.

Red Rose opens for Term II 2010

It is the first week of 2nd term in this year’s calendar. Most of the pupils have reported back to school from Easter holidays. As a Red-rose community, we are happy because all our pupils have reported to school in good health. Learning has begun as usual in all the classes and the teachers very busy preparing the learning from day to day activities.

Though the term has begun smoothly, the July winter has begun in a high note. The weather is quiet cold in such a way that all the pupils must be wearing sweaters so hat they do not shiver from the cold. During the early morning, there is always some drizzling which makes the compound muddy.

Red-rose has also formed some clubs whereby the children are taught on various life skills. One of the club is Health Club led by Teacher Christine whereby the children are taught in various matters concerning hygiene and how the to take care of themselves. Another club is Lit World Girls Club led by Teacher Rose.

We are also glad because we received a new teacher by the name Teacher Linah who will be assisting Teacher Musau in handling the children in Nursery class. Our standard four is also underway and it’s about to be completed. The construction of the new school toilets is over and we really appreciate the Children of Kibera Organization sponsors at large because this has minimized movement among our pupils and it has minimized time wastage in between the lessons.
Photos to come.
