We have begun our new unit of inquiry into the transdisciplinary theme how the world works with the central idea: Water is a natural resource that can be explored. The children tuned into the unit by exploring our new science lab, playing in the water table and by going on a “water walk”.
This week we started Show & Tell. We discussed what it means to be a good speaker. We speak clearly and try to project our voice so others can hear. We also talked about being good and respectful listeners and what our bodies look like while doing this. The students were a bit nervous and excited to stand in front of their classmates to share, but they did a fantastic job! I was so proud of them! We are putting all of the photos in a “Holiday Book” that they can look at on a regular basis.
Next week for Show and Tell, please send in a tool to explore water. For example: Container, spoon, funnel, tube, dropper… Be creative 🙂 We will use descriptive language to talk about the ‘tool.’
This morning we welcomed schools from all over Asia at the D-12 APAC volleyball school assembly. K1 adopted Brent International School from Manila. The children decorated flags with the Brent logo to carry and headbands with their Lions mascot to wear. We cheered loud and made them feel welcome. We also had the opportunity to get a picture with our adopted team. Tomorrow we will be attending a volleyball game to show our support and school spirit. So exciting!
Please enjoy these pictures of the week!
- FRIDAY (tomorrow): The children are asked to wear blue to support UNIS at the APAC volleyball tournament!!
