During Math this week, we have been learning about 100 charts. The students have been given lots of torn 100 charts and have had to place the numbers in the chart. They are working really hard on justifying their answers to their partner. Their mathematical brains have been working overtime.
Please bring your used books to school. We hope to have the most books in the whole school. Thank you in advance for helping the SCO. A big THANK YOU to Kai for being our first student to donate his books. Who will be the next?

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.
