Uniquely Dot Day

This week in Elementary school we all celebrated International Dot Day. The students decorated their homeroom doors with dots in many unique ways, as a celebration of the beauty of creativity. Meanwhile, in art classes, students from D-5 created dots with a space in the middle. Each grade level used a different technique to develop their dotty design. Every unique dot was linked together to form a collaborative artwork with this year’s UNIS theme #strongertogether. We encourage families to watch this short video where you can see dotty doors, some from home, many inventive dotty creations, and even dotty outfits.

A big thank you to all the students, teachers, members of staff, and families who helped support International Dot Day this year.

Get Ready for International Dot Day 2020

Next Tuesday, September 15, is International Dot Day where people all over the world celebrate art and creativity, using their imaginations making dots in all sorts of different ways.

We will celebrate in school next week in both art classes and in homerooms making many dots. We’d love all children is ES to help make the day memorable by dressing in dotty clothes. A dotty, spotty t-shirt or dress, dotty, spotty socks, or even a dotty hat. If you don’t have anything get creative and make something.

Each class will be covering their door in their dots and we’ll share all the wonderful achievements via next week’s Tin Tuc. If families would like to create dots at home and decorate their doors too that would be great – we’d love to see what you do, email your photos to ehamilton@unishanoi.org

For more information about the history of Dot Day listen to this Youtube video from Peter H. Reynolds author of the international bestseller The Dot.

Discovery and K1 Arts Celebration

Instead of our annual Discovery and K1 Arts celebration of music and art, we are creating something unique and special. This year, all students, whether now back at school, or still participating in distance learning have been working together to make up stories about dragons. They have worked in their homeroom on the stories, then with the specialists, they have created the artwork, and made their own music and dance moves. All of this work will be shared with you soon via the Tin Tuc so watch this space for something rather wonderful!
