Dear British Education Korea Bundang House parents,
As everyday is a day for new discoveries and explorations for our children, the month of January was not an exception. To celebrate the Lunar New Year, we played traditional games and made various traditional hand-made crafts. While some made New Year’s resolutions to set goals for the year by themselves, younger children learned the meaning of setting goals and how to work to achieve them.
As we’re wrapping up the year and preparing for the new academic year, both our Pre-Nursery to Year 3 students and teachers have kept themselves busy with assessments on Literacy and Numeracy. The assessment results will be a stellar indicator of how much our children have learned and what they need to focus more on next year. I’m very proud of not only how much our children have accomplished this year but also how much they’ve given their very best to what they do and take what faces them with a positive attitude and without fear as they have learned it’s okay to take risks, to fail, and to try again.
At the beginning of February, with the goals to inform our parents about the progress our children have made, there will be a Parent-Teacher Conference scheduled for all grade levels. It is important you join us this time and find out about the accomplishments and growth our students have made in the seven main subjects our children are studying under the British Curriculum – Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) for Pre-N to Reception and the eleven subjects our Year 1 and upper-grade students study under the National Curriculum for England (NCE).
As there was a Coronavirus outbreak at the end of January, all of us have tried to keep our school safe and have continued to manage our educational journey in the best condition for our children. Until the outbreak settles, the BEK staff will monitor the case closely and try our best to keep our children safe and healthy.
In the month of February, there are very important dates with the last day of the current grade on February 21st and the Orientation/First Day of School on March 2nd the day in which you will meet new teachers and new parents of your child’s classmates. Please mark the dates on our children’s academic calendar and we will follow up with you about the ways parents can participate on those days.
The British Pre Prep Bundang House
