It’s been a short, yet very busy week so far!
Field Trip to Fivimart
On Wednesday, the children designed their healthy snack making sure that it had at least 2 food groups – “body builders” (protein), “body protectors” (fruit/vegetables) and “energy givers” (carbohydrates). They then made a shopping list. This morning we set off on our field trip to buy the ingredients for their snack. Back in class, the students made their creations and enjoyed them for afternoon snack. Please ask your child about the healthy choices they made! Many, many thanks to Emi, Jonathan, Chi, Luck and Akiko for all your help!
Before and after
Year book cover competition
If you’re child would like to create a cover for the 2017-18 year book, please read the letter from Advancement here.
The Grade 1 teachers are learners too:
This weekend, the Grade 1 team along with the other ECC teachers at UNIS and 40 colleagues from all around Asia, had the pleasure of attending the EARCOS workshop Listening to Learning in the Early Years, presented by Fiona Zinn. Fiona is an Educational Consultant based in Hobart, Australia. Drawing on 25 years experience in the early childhood, primary and tertiary sectors, Fiona consults widely with International Schools around the world to boldly re-imagine early years and primary pedagogy, curriculum and learning environments in response to research. During our two-day weekend workshop, we explored some of the ideas that underpin the pedagogical experience of Reggio Emilia, investigated our ‘image of the child’ and shared some deep reflection on the importance of relationships within our schools. We also examined the role of provocation and documentation for our work with transnational children in international school contexts. After our weekend of learning, we had another two days of professional development focusing on student agency.
As I mentioned a week or so ago, it would be wonderful if you or a family member could come to class as a “mystery reader” for 1D. It would be a surprise for the children, so please don’t mention it, and we would love to have stories in your home language.
- The next ES snack sale will be on Wednesday November 22nd. Please give your child 20,000 VND so that they can purchase a healthy snack.
- Tickets for the G1-3 musical are on sale after school outside the canteen.
- Library day: from next week onwards, 1D will go to the library on Fridays.
