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’!

On Friday 5th December, KIS took 2 teams of students to compete in the highly anticipated AISAA Primary Athletics Games at Berkeley International School. Against a highly competitive home team and also Concordian and Ekamai International Schools, KIS had to be at their very best to achieve any form of success.
Initially, the long distance track events were won by Berkeley but then KIS started clawing back momentum with wins from Alex and Namo in both throwing events and the triple jump from Proud and Pim Pim. In the middle distance and shorter events, KIS exploded into life with some superb running from all our athletes, notably Ciara and our G2 superstars – brothers and sisters Bew Bew and Rew Rew!
The competition went right down to the very end and a nail-biting finale saw our relay teams win 3 out of 4 races to be crowned both G5&U and G3&U champions for a second successive year! Well done everybody!!!

During the last few weeks, students from G1-5 have been assessing their swimming performances with the aid of technology! Students have been filmed performing their freestyle technique underwater with Go Pro’s and then, after having their videos uploaded to Seesaw, they have worked with a partner to review their own and their friends’ performances and given feedback. This has been a great tool in helping the students strive for understanding on how to improve their stroke and has been fun to see each other underwater!
Bujji in G3 show amazing diving technique before gliding into freestyle!
Students in Mr. Zac’s G4 class give great feedback to their peers!

This week in PE students have been working as a team to try and overcome challenges and solve problems, including this activity below – ‘the Human fishing rod’! Students have loved this challenge and have shown great teamwork, communication and problem solving to try and complete this challenge. It has also tied in with the G4 UOI of ‘Forces’ in order to use the student who is the fishing rod as a lever and bring them back to shore!
