Camp is Coming

Posted by year4

As hard as it is to believe…Y4 camp is just around the corner.  Everyone should’ve received an e-notice this week about camp as well as a request for parent volunteers.  This year we are hoping to have eight parents attend camp with is, so please fill in the form if you are interested and available to attend.

You might have noticed that we have a camp page here on our website.  Click on the ‘Camp‘ tab at the top of the website (or click here) and you will see the kit list for students as well as a schedule for our three days.  This will also be where you will find regularly updated pictures of camp when we are away.

Y4 camp is an amazing time for students and we are really looking forward to it.  If you have any questions about camp, or about being a parent volunteer, please contact Kris Stanhope (kris.stanhope@dc.edu.hk).

Homework and Email in Year 4

Posted by year4

Each week students get their homework emailed to them.  Although we always review the homework in class before it goes home, our expectation is that students open their email at home to remind themselves and ensure they are completing all activities.  Please also remember that the homework is always available on our Year 4 website under the ‘Homework’ tab –  blogs.discovery.edu.hk/year-4/homework

Logging into email has been difficult for some students who, although they know how to access their email on our computers at school, are unsure how to get to their email on a home computer.  Therefore, we wanted to provide you with a little information so you are able to help them.

Basically each student at DC has a Google email account. So, in order to sign into their email they will need to go to google.com.  Once there, no matter the type of computer or browser, they can proceed to sign into their account in the top right corner.
If you were unaware that your child has their own email or have some concerns about that, we suggest you discuss internet safety with your children and regularly check their emails with them.  Please also take a few minutes to look at the presentation from the Parent information Evening regarding email that was provided by Mr Leithhead last year.  Click here to see the presentation.
If you have any further questions or concerns please feel free to your class teacher.
