Wow, just like that we are heading into the last week of school for the term. Looking back over the past term there is so much to be proud of. The challenges we as a community have overcome, and the resilience and growth the students have demonstrated is noteworthy. We couldn’t be more proud, and know that everyone is looking forward to a well deserved break!
Here are some snapshots of learners in action from the last week:
Coming up this week:
Literacy: Building on last week’s persuasive writing, students will use key features to create a persuasive campaign and develop a poster either by hand or using canva to persuade others to take action in order to protect the environment. Students will draw on knowledge and understanding of the key features of persuasive writing and apply these into their poster.
Math: Students will be building on their understanding of factors and multiples along with the inverse operation of multiplication and division. This week we will begin by reflecting on the way they would approach solving the 2 digit by 1 digit division problem. Together we will review the different strategies that students are familiar with and build on these in the follow up lesson practising solving 2 & 3 digit division problems.
UOI: This week, students will be reflecting on their learning from last week, particularly the taking action and work on their persuasive writing. Students will think about how this message can now be shared with a larger audience to persuade others to take action in order to protect the environment. Students will explore how people can take action to support the protection of the environment by making more sustainable choices.
A kind reminder to everyone that swimming is a part of the curriculum here at KIS. We have been waiting for a window of opportunity to include swimming back into the programme and now we are able to swim and when the weather is warm. It’s important that everyone takes part in the programme. If your child is sick, please bring along a doctor’s note to excuse your child from the programme, and if they are really sick then you need to keep them home until they are fully able to participate. Please, let’s ensure our learners are getting the exercise and developing the life skills they require as a part of a balanced and healthy lifestyle. Thank you for your support and attention.
KIS will be having our annual school photo sessions from Monday, April 19th to Monday, April 26th. During this period, we will have professional photographers coming in to take photographs of all classes from EY1-G12 in groups as well as individual student photos. Faculty and staff will be obligated to take part in the faculty and staff group photo and individual portrait as indicated on the photo schedule. Please see the photo schedule here. Should students wish to bring in their favorite items that represent themselves and help to make them feel proud in their individual photo, they are welcome to do so. Suggested items are books, sports equipment (football, football kits, etc.), certificates, etc. Please do not send in any inappropriate items such as toy guns, princess/superhero costume, toy sword/weapons, etc.
The photographer’s team will strictly follow the time stated on the photo schedule. If a student is late or absent for their class photo as per the schedule, it will not be possible to have the whole class retake the photograph again. However, the student will be able to have their individual photograph taken.
KIS families and KIS staff can take this opportunity to come and take family photo(s) with advanced booking by emailing email@example.com The available time slot is indicated on the schedule as “Family & Staff”.
