Students in PYP have had a great time this week using the new playground equipment and incorporating it into their PE lessons. Finding out about ourselves in our first unit – ‘Who we are’ – students have used the new apparatus to discover their own elements of physical fitness – Balance, Strength, Agility. They have been recording their times and levels in a series of initial fitness tests and will see how they progress and grow throughout the course of the year.
As you can see from the photos and videos, the students are loving experimenting with the new equipment and they will develop many skills from playing on it!

Following on from the success of the G3-5 KIS Badminton team at the recent AISAA tournament, PYP students had a chance to pair up with a friend and compete against children in other classes and grades for the PYP Badminton tournament. The tournament also coincided with the end of our ‘Net games’ unit of Inquiry where students compared badminton, tennis and volleyball before making links and transferring skills.The tournament was a great success with over 50 students competing over 2 days. The eventual winners were Good and Proud (Lulul and Bea runners-up) in the Girls section, and Phip and Gun (Pan and Paan runners-up) in the Boys event. Well done everybody!
KIS hosted its annual PYP Swim Gala last week, and again it didn’t disappoint! Students from G1-5 showed what swimming skills they have learned this year in lessons with a fantastic effort that demonstrated many of the IB learner profile attitudes such as enthusiasm, passion, commitment, cooperation and appreciation.
In the end, Hanuman won the Lower Grade event whilst Erawan came out on top in the Upper Grades. The real winners though were the students who put so much into the day for their teams – well done everybody!!
Last week was a super active day in the KIS calendar as the PYP community came together for the annual Sports Day! There was plenty of effort, determination, spirit and fun on show as all teams demonstrated their sporting skills over the course of the day. In Lower Grade School, Hanuman came out on top whilst Erawan took the spoils in G3-5. Well done all teams on a fantastic sporting day!
Students in G3-5 have been practicing the game of Smashball, which is a form of mini-volleyball, during their Net games UOI. Last Friday lunchtime was a culmination of the unit, where students playing in a tournament – prizes to be handed out next week!
There will also be some mini Tennis, badminton and Football tournaments coming up so get practicing!
Even though school is closed, students can keep themselves fit at home – don’t forget we have the final of the Ironman & Ironwoman competition next week!!
G3-5 are currently training for a biathlon – swimming and running (we called it mini Ironman and woman!), as part of our swimming unit. It tied in with the G5 UOI of ‘sustainability’ and how we can keep our energy levels sustained whilst doing exercise. It has been great fun and all students have demonstrated great resilience and determination to compete just like a ‘mini Ironman and Ironwoman’!
