We have had a busy week connecting with our host country culture and our identity as being the United Nations school. We learnt about the Moon Festival and International Day of Peace.
The children looked fabulous in their Ao Dais. We had a shared snack with fruit, mooncake and young rice. We went to the Tet Trung Thu assembly. The Vietnamese language students in grade 2, 4 and 5 retold the story of why we celebrate.
We have read many books and have been talking about peace. What does it… feel like? look like? taste like? sound like? smell like? Together we used our hand prints to decorate 2 doves for our classroom.
Unit of Inquiry
This week we continued our inquiry into the transdisciplinary theme Who we are with the central idea: personal choices affect ourselves and the community. We have been talking about how the Moon Festival and International Day of Peace bring a community together. The children are beginning to understand their role in bringing peace to our K1A classroom.
Parent Teacher Conferences
On October 1st, there will be conferences. This is a time for parents/guardians to meet with your child’s teachers. This is a conference for teachers and parents. I kindly ask that you leave your children at home.
There is NO SCHOOL on October 1st for Elementary School students.
Thank you for signing up for your child’s Seesaw and for all of the wonderful comments you are leaving for your child. You will start to notice less pictures on this blog because they will be put on your child’s Seesaw page with a caption or explanation of the learning your child has been engaging with.
Global Goals Week
Next week is global goals week at UNIS. During this week we put the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals front and centre in our thinking and our learning. As part of Global Goals week we will be having a Nude Food Day
on Friday 28 September. Put simply, nude food day means sending your child to school with a snack that contains no disposable packaging. For more information click here
Have a wonderful weekend,
