This week in UoI

After our rubbish collection last week, our next activity was to think about what UNIS used to look like before our school was built. We compared the pictures to help us to think about how humans are having an impact on the plants and animals in our environment. 

Mr Duc from Operations took us to the large playing field to see what creatures we could see living in the environment now. We saw baby frogs (or are they toads? – we will investigate), cicada skins (or are they called skeletons? – we’ll find out!), a dead lizard and other creatures. Ask your child what he/she saw!

A Visit to Middle School

Last week we visited our friends in 7th and 8th grades during their Design class. They are making us some items for our Play-Based Learning space. It was so interesting to see our new equipment in the making and the G1 children really enjoyed helping out.Missing Books

Did you buy any of these books at the Book Sale? These books accidentally ended up in the book sale and they actually belong to Ms Ronke in Grade 5. If you know where they are please return them to her for a reward.
