Loy Krathong Assembly

On Wednesday the children proved themselves to be both Communicators and Risk-takers, as they took to the stage for their assembly performance. They have been working hard in their preparations for the assembly, over the last few weeks.

We decided to share the pictures, the traditions of Loy Krathong, teach how to make a Krathong, and end with a Loy Krathong song and dance in our assembly.

Songkran Celebration

Songkran, the Thai New Year, is the pinnacle of festivals in Thailand and time to pay our respects to elders and wash away the past to start the new year afresh.

In connecting with the traidtions, parents and children participated in the ‘Rod Naam’ ceremony. Children wash their parents hands and offer flower garlands to pay respect in thanking them. Parents then bless their children and wish them all the best for the New Year.

Assembly & Exhibition

The Creativity and Service Class have been using various thinking routines to further their inquiry into Air. For the assembly, the class decided to use the K-W-L chart to make their thinking visible. The K-W-L chart, which tracks what we know (K), want to know (W), and have learned (L) was used before, during, and after the inquiry process. IMG_8929

Students took ownership of their own learning to prepare for the assembly and shared their thinking, understanding, questions, and knowledge about Air in various ways. Students took this opportunity to make connections with their learning journey through  our inquiry.

Have a look at a snapshot of our assembly!

After the assembly, the parents and audience were invited to visit our Class Exhibition. The exhibition allowed for the children to showcase their science projects of Air experiments, which was a great home-school collaborative project done with the children and parents.

Questions to further your inquiry into Air: 

  • What link is there between air and our daily lives?
  • What are the properties of air?
  • How are we able to use scientific processes to uncover a deeper understanding of air?

Triathlon-logo4

In working towards active living, promoting healthy lifestyles, and continuing interactions, the Creativity, Service, and Excellence Class participated in a Triathlon.   A triathlon is a three-event race consisting of swimming, biking and running. Training for swimming, running and biking simultaneously can be challenging but also allows for children to build on their skill and stamina. A unique aspect of triathlons is that the event teaches children how to switch gears and make transitions.

We know the importance of stretching before!

Children learn that completing a triathlon isn’t about winning; it’s about the personal challenge, having fun and being a risk-taker. Overall, it was a successful event with active children practicing their skills and showcasing their capabilities, and of course with the added participation of enthusiastic parents and supporting teachers.

Starting with a costume parade of our favorite book character, which allowed us to be creative and bring different characters to life. We also extended our love for reading by visiting the younger classes and read the story pictures to them.

The week started with a fantastic story telling performance of The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson from the PWG with the support of the Excellence Class. There were a few of our class parents involved in this performance, which made their children very proud!

The next performance was by Mr. Chairat and Grade1 & 2 Class of Five Little Monkeys and then their own version of Five Little Monsters! The children enjoyed singing along and were creative when making their own monkey hand puppets and monster masks after.

The final performance was by the teachers, telling the story of Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. The children were enthusiastic audience members and also got to participate in the rumpus! They were able to make connections with the story and enjoyed seeing all the teachers in action.

Magic Years vs Jittamett

The Creativity, Service, and Excellence Class played a friendly soccer game against Jittamett Pre-Kindergarteners. The experience allowed for the children to showcase their skills acquired in soccer, as well as extend their understandings of cooperation and appreciation of themselves and others.
The event was full of enthusiasm from everyone involved! The players were excited and displayed sportsmanship for one another, audience members could be heard cheering and singing throughout the match, and we even had wonderful commentators and cheerleaders from our fellow peers in Grade 1 & 2 class.
We fostered old friendships and developed new ones in the process. All in all, it was a super success!

Sports Day

As we reflected on Sports Day, everyone agreed it was a great fun-filled day, and some even thought we should have sports day every day! The Creativity and Service Class proved to be risk-takers when participating in all events throughout the day.

They were enthusiastic in their folk dance performance of ‘Put Your Little Foot’, and continued to be appreciative audience members during the Opening Ceremony; particularly enjoying the delivery of the Olympic torch, the sword fighting and the Taekwondo, which some of our students participated in with confidence. They demonstrated cooperation and collaboration during the soccer match as they worked together in teams towards a mutual goal. They were open-minded at trying new skills during the Sprint and the Relay, which were exciting events with such enthusiastic support from parents and families! At the closing ceremony students received a well-deserved medal as an appreciation to their efforts and to commemorate the special day.

Thank you parents and families for supporting this special occasion. Enjoy some moments from the event!
