Parent conferences

It was so lovely to welcome parents into the classroom on Monday to talk with your child about their progress so far and the goals they have for the future. We hope this was as rewarding for you as it was for us. Please ask your children to show you any of the prepared pieces of learning that they did not have time to share in the meeting to continue the conversation.

Body Safety Workshop- boys

 

 

 

 

Last week the girls had their workshop with Ms Alex this week it was the turn of the boys. Please see Ms Alex’s message below.

It is important for children to know what it means to keep their body safe, especially their private parts. During the Body Safety Workshops, Ms. Alex talks to students about the names they have for their private parts, how to keep them safe, and what to do if they feel unsafe. This is all done using age appropriate language, and the students are encouraged to practice non-verbal and verbal communication strategies to establish safe boundaries for their own bodies. They learn to find pride and power in using their voice to stand up for themselves and others, and are reminded of the support resources that are available to them at all times. By the end of the workshop, students often express a sense of personal strength and agency. It is very possible that this workshop will spark your child’s curiosity about their own body, and the bodies of others. It is not unusual for your child to come home and ask you questions about their bodies, the differences between boys and girls, and what this all means. Please do take the time to talk to your child about body safety and any other related topics they might bring up. It is always best to answer their questions honestly as this will prevent confusion and misunderstandings. It will also ensure an open line of communication, and your child will be more likely to come to you if they ever feel unsafe. If you are not sure how to answer a particular question, you might say “I am not sure how to answer that question right now, can I give you the answer tomorrow?” You are then more than welcome to reach out to me for advice on how to move forward.  

Warm regards,

Ms. Alex  

alex.sh@kis.ac.th

Unit of inquiry

This week we have been looking at identity online, how to keep safe, how to be aware of clickbait and gender stereotyping and cyberbullying to ensure that the identity which is being portrayed to the world is the one we want it to be.

Next week the students will inquire in-depth into identity and the changes which happen during puberty. Both the Physical and emotional changes of puberty will be investigated, this will feature the correct names for body parts and their function and will also focus on the emotional changes which the influx of hormones can promote. If you have any concerns about this please do reach out to your child’s teacher.

Literacy

As we finish our mini unit on poetry the students are becoming more aware of the techniques associated with performing these to an audience, including changing the pace, volume and tone of voices and keeping good eye contact with the audience.

Next week we will return to our investigation into magazines. The students will be taking on different roles in order to publish their own magazine.

Numeracy

The students will be continuing their investigation into shapes both 2d and 3d and also inquiring into symmetry both reflective and rotational and tessellation.

School council

The school council members and House leaders have been busy again this week. Please read their newsletter pyp website.

If you have any questions  please contact your child’s teacher on the addresses below.

Unit of inquiry

This week the students have been investigating healthy living, inquiring into the (energy) food we eat and also the activities (energy expenditure) we do on a daily basis. They will apply this knowledge to creating their own healthy eating and exercise plan. Next week the students will inquire  into online identities, thinking about how they are perceived and also about to keep safe.

Literacy

Performance poetry has been this week’s focus both writing it and learning the techniques to recite poems in an entertaining way. This will continue next week when the students will be reciting their own poems.

Numeracy

Accuracy has been the watch word for this week’s investigation into how to identify, measure and create angles. Understanding the concept of angles has enabled the students to calculate angles on a line, at a point and within 2d shapes. next week the students will increase their understanding of the properties of 2d and 3d shapes.

Graduation

We have been very lucky to be given permission to hold a graduation celebration in the auditorium this year, the first time for three years, to which we can invite parents. This will take place on the morning of 25th May at 8.30. All parents will need to have submitted a negative ATK test and follow the mask wearing and social distancing protocols. This will be a lovely way to send the students on their way to the MYP and we look forward to seeing you all there.

Parent workshop

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some members of Grade 5 took part in the parent workshop on Friday morning to share the action they had taken during the exhibition. Ms Tania described them as knowledgeable, confident, supportive and said that they truly reflected what it means to be a PYP Learner and leader. Well done to them all.

Literacy 

This week the students have started to investigate the differing structure of poems. Writing their own acrostic poems, rhyming couplets, tercet poems and Cinquains. Following the instructions given about the themes of certain poems, counting syllables and rhyming particular lines as well as knowing about stanzas are all elements which will  feature in the coming weeks.

Numeracy

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The students have been investigating Angles in the environment and the properties of 2d shapes connecting to angles. Using thinking skills to inquire into angles on a line, angles in a circle and learning the particular names of angles, acute, obtuse and reflex.  The students will continue with their investigations next week, learning to calculate missing angles and create their own angles with a protractor.

Cartoonist day

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We want to say a big thank you to Ms Earth and Ms Lisa for organising the graphic artist last week. The expert tips they gave us were really helpful in creating our own characters and cartoons. We are really looking forward to seeing the whole school’s creations next week.

Parent Conferences

As the students did such an amazing job presenting their exhibitions issues to their parents Grade 5 have decided to use this as the student- led conference which allows the 16th May conference to be focused on three way conferences which means a more in-depth conversation can take place between student, parent and teachers as to goals for next year.

The majority of students have now completed their research on their lines of inquiry and are busy summarising this knowledge ready to add this to their websites.

They are also deeply involved in their action, a very important part of this year’s exhibition and are beginning to create their presentation videos.

Next week they will begin to think about the staging of their exhibition and make choices about what information appears on their websites, which they would like to print and what they would like to include in their videos.

Numeracy

Data handling and the creation of graphs including bar graphs, pie charts and line graphs have been the the focus of numeracy, this week, to enable the students to have a good understanding of these when relating their own gathered facts from their PYPX inquiries. As you can see from the photos below, some of these activities have been very practical.
