To conclude our unit exploring sustainability, on Thursday Grade 3 went to visit the Metro Forest in Bangkok. A fantastic project that was designed to bring back nature into our city. The Metro forest shared their journey with our students and they were able to see what impact a small idea and some effective action can really have on our community, environment and world.
After returning from our field trip, the children were inspired to design their own metro forest and think about if they were going to create a sustainable space where nature can flourish – what would there be and how would it be powered?
We have been really impressed with the students passion and enthusiasm throughout this unit. Moving forward, we will be starting to look into our next unit ‘how we express ourselves’ with a particular focus of the use of digital media communications.
The week of Artigras is upon us and we have lots of exciting things happening in and around school including music and art, dance and drama, so there is lots to be getting involved with.
Ms Daisy – Art Project, Origami:
We will be starting our origami project in school and then students can have a go at continuing at home.
Mr Chris – Battle of the Bands & Busking:
Battle of the Bands: With the return of Battle of the bands, students have been invited to attend to watch and support our own KIS bands taking part on Tuesday.
Busking: On Wednesday, students are invited to take part in the busking sessions helping to raise money for charity. All those not performing will be taking time to watch and show support to their peers.
Mr Matt – Drama Workshop:
Mr Matt will be running a lunchtime drama workshop on Thursday from 11:35 – 12:10, if drama is something you would like to have a go at.
Artigras is a fantastic opportunity for all students to have a go at something they are inspired by, passionate about or try something completely new.
We hope everyone has a brilliant week with all of the festivities and if there are any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
