3C and 3D presented a short piece at assembly today on some of their learning in maths. The script was written by Ayaan in 3C wth help from Amelie (3C), Evie (3C), Hjalte (3C), Kelei (3D), Max (3D) and J.P. (3D). Take a look here.
This week in uoi, students have begun planning what message they, as artists, want to share. For the next week or so they will be working on a piece of art that shares that message, using a particular form and different techniques. They will be suing the below template to help them with their planning. Please talk to your child about their message. What do they feel strongly about that they want others to know? Help them also to gather any materials they may need for their art project.
- please send in any books you no longer need for the Book Sale Drive
- Wednesday 18th is Student Led Conference day (there are no regular classes) – your child is excited to be able to share some of their learning with you!
- Grades 2-5 Art Exhibition starts today with an Open House style evening from 5-7pm and runs until Friday next week.
- next week is Poetry week. Why not write a poem with your child at home and have them bring it to school to share? Or read some poetry at bedtime instead of a story?
Below is a message from some G5 students. They have worked very hard to get the screening rights……….
We are one of the Grade 5 PYP Exhibition groups called ‘Plastic Ocean’s’. We are screening a documentary called, ‘A Plastic Ocean’, directed by Craig Leeson and Produced by Jo Ruxton and Adam Leipzig.
A Plastic Ocean documents the newest science, proving how plastics, once they enter the oceans, break up into small particles that enter the food chain where they attract toxins like a magnet. These toxins are stored in seafood’s fatty tissues, and eventually consumed by us.
Plastic pollution isn’t new. But awareness of just how catastrophic it is for the environment has grown in recent years – especially its impact on the oceans. It may be second only to global warming as a threat to the health of the seas.
Here in Vietnam, we’ve seen very little action. And that’s despite the fact that Vietnam has been identified as one of five countries responsible for more than 60% of the world’s plastic pollution.
We want to invite you to attend the screening at UNIS, on the 17th of April, at 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, to learn and explore ways you can make a difference. A ticket costs 50,000 VND, Feel free to watch this short video to show you why you should attend this screening.
The ticket proceeds will go towards covering the costs of the screening fee, advertising and 100% of the remainder will go towards the ‘Plastic Pollution Coalition’, which is a project of Earth Island Institute, a 501(c)3, non-profit organization, organized and existing under the laws of California (Federal Tax ID #94-2889684), located at: 2150 Allston Way, Suite 460, Berkeley, CA 94704.
With many thanks from us, a group of 10 & 11 year olds trying to make a difference.
