Grade 1 Weekly Update

Dear G1 Parents,  

Thanks again to all of you who attended the G1 Parent Teacher Conferences last week. We appreciate your patience and flexibility with the changes last week.

The G1 Learning engagements from 11th – 15th November 2019 below.

Last Monday was the celebration of Loy Krathong, The Festival of Lights. During Thai and TAL the children got to make Krathongs which the children really enjoyed doing.

UOI – Goal Setting

The children thought about some things that they are good at and identified what they did to improve. They will continue to look at areas where they need to improve and come up with steps to help them achieve their goals. Goals may connect to many different learning areas and support the students to reflect on their mental and emotional development.

Holiday Concert 

Before we know it the holiday concert will be upon us. Mr Chris has asked that leading up to the concert it would be really helpful if the G1 students could practice their class songs. 

G1 will be performing in the holiday concert at the end of this term. Costume details will be discussed a little closer to the event.

Non-Uniform Day Friday November 22nd.

This Friday the KIS Primary and Secondary Student Councils are holding a whole school non-uniform day. This event is to support PAWS Bangkok who undertake very valuable work to care for injured and stray cats around Bangkok. Students are asked to donate 20 Baht to be part of this event, however if you wish to donate more please do as PAWS is in desperate need of funds at the moment.

Thank you,

The G1 Team
