Dear Samakee Community,
The Songkran holiday has arrived, and for Middle and Upper School, the school will be closed for two weeks, reopening on Monday 19th April.
Next week, First School have five more days of school and will break for the Songkran holiday on Friday 9th April. After the Songkran holiday the extended school day will end and revert to normal, 14:30 and First School families will soon receive information about the After School Clubs/ECA programme for the remainder of the term.
Thank you to those families who have already let the school and teachers know their plans for the next academic year. We understand that it may be difficult for some families to know what the future holds. Nevertheless, whatever your plans may be or however uncertain they are at this time, we ask that you please take the time to complete this survey based on your most likely expectations. Thank you.
YEAR 3 PREPARATIONS FOR THE COLOUR RUNIn Year 3, we have been using our mathematical skills to prepare for the Colour Run on Friday! We will be taking part to raise money for three chosen charities. In the classroom, we measured the ingredients using equipment; then we mixed them together to create a gooey slime; putting our hands in it was definitely our favourite part. We left it out in the sun to dry overnight, and it created a colourful powder. We are extremely excited about Friday and can’t wait to take part!
In Spanish, Y4 have been learning the vocabulary for physical description. What better way than to practise with a game of Guess Who. The students took turns to ask each other yes/no questions until they had worked out who their partner’s chosen character was. Y4 had a great time using their Spanish speaking skills to beat their friends.

The Colour Run today has been tremendous fun and enjoyable for everyone. We will of course share more photos of the event, but before we do, I would like to share with you the results of this fundraising event.

Shakespeare House raised BHT25,810 for their chosen charity – PAWS, helping cats and dogs.
