A glimpse from this week and next.
Math this week and next is focused on place value activities and interpreting and reading graphs. We have been and will be connecting these activities to our migration unit.
In writing we have used a variety of activities across the different classrooms to develop our students as writers. These have included personal journals, researching and writing about real migrant stories, fictional migrant stories and some students have been working on developing questions for interviewing family members about their migrant stories. These activities will continue next week.
In reading we have used a variety of activities across the different classrooms to develop our students as readers. These have included picture story books about migration, setting up reading circles, class read out louds and migration websites. These activities will continue next week.
The students have continued to examine real life migrant stories and made personal connections to their own movement or family movement. The focus now is very much on the different perspectives and the physical, cultural and emotional changes that can take place before, during and after migration.

Cancelled -Parent Migration Story Sharing.
As we did not receive any offers to share family migration stories, we have reorganised this time for another UOI activity that does not require any outside experts.
Friday 23rd September as it is a Faculty/Staff Professional Development Day.
This will be the LAST week that students may borrow UNIS Library resources from the Library without a book bag.
Please provide a water resistant book bag for your child to carry their Library books to and from school. As we are a green school, we encourage the use of a sustainable borrowing bag.
Water resistant book bags are available for purchase in the SCO boutique (located in the Sports Center) and in the Library (200,000 VND).
Thank you for your support~!
Ms. Conroy, your student’s Librarian/ Information Fluency teacher.
Hope you all enjoyed Moon Festival! We did!
