The IBO recommends that from at least the age of 7, all students in the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) have the opportunity to learn more than one language. At Magic Years International School, we nurture the development of complex language from the early years. We recognize the importance of bilingualism and strengthening our students’ home languages while at the same time learning the school’s medium of instruction in English.
On Saturday October 10, 2015 our mommy goat Belle gave birth to two cute brown baby goats. A baby goat is also known as “kid”, and other other MYIS kids have already fallen in love with them.
Congratulations to our Primary Years students on being risk-takers and completing their first assembly of the year. Their performance was informative and creative. The students discussed their Unit of Inquiry and related it to their exploration of Multiple Intelligence and Edward de Bono’s Six Thinking Hats.
During a recent Parent Working Group meeting, our Director of Teaching and Learning spoke about the importance of reading aloud to our children, both at home and school. Reading can begin at the age of infancy through looking at pictures, listening to an adult’s voice, and pointing to objects on pages.
