Implementing structures that enhance learning, your fourth grader continued to focus on many aspects of UNIS Hanoi’s core values of Responsibility, Community, and Learning.
Here are some highlights:
UOI: end-of-unit learning presentations on different body systems, how the systems work, and the effect our choices have on our body systems. Each student had an opportunity to reflect on their individual and group process skills and contribution.
Community – The whole grade 4 came together to learn from one another at a learning summit.
Responsibility – Students had to demonstrate responsibility skills, organizing all needed resources and moving to their designated location where they led their presentations in a very responsible manner.
Learning – A great deal of learning happened on the SDG Guardians’ field trip to the Hidden Gem Coffee for a Carrot Mob on Tuesday! The experience added depth to the Guardians’ understanding of one of their goals; ‘Partnerships beyond UNIS’
Community – The students investigated sustainable practices within our Hanoian community and connected with community members doing inspiring work while exploring ways to work together.
Responsibility – The trip to the Hidden Gem Café was to promote SDG 12, Responsible Consumption and Production. It was an inspiration to end plastic waste on our planet and encourage upscaling and reusing existing plastic objects.
Guest Animal: Pearl
Learning – On Tuesday, some of our classmates were involved in an excellent learning activity, inviting Pearl, a pony, to school. Students learned in a real context, what ponies look like, what they are used for, what makes them unique, how to ride them and much more.
Fun facts: Pound for pound, ponies are stronger than horses. Young ponies are called foals. As well as for riding, ponies are used in driving and working roles. Ponies are small horses. Well trained ponies are good for children while they are learning to ride.
Community – The visit of this animal certainly brought our local community and grade 4C&D together. Hanoi Pony Club brought skills and knowledge and shared an unforgettable experience with Pearl and the fourth graders at UNIS Hanoi!
Responsibility – How to care for such an animal and the responsibility we have to take care of all lives of land was elicited during the visit.
