Artigras is Here!
The whole school is excited to kick off this special event, a week-long festival of the arts. Monday began with our opening assembly, where we were introduced to some famous artists and learned a dance that we’ll all perform flash-mob style throughout the week. We also started working on a collaborative art piece, which we will continue to work on in our art studio. Ms. Daisy will also be doing artist studies with our classes, while Ms. Alex’s colouring club will be creating a huge poster of Bangkok. On Tuesday, we will enjoy a concert at lunch time, featuring the PYP band, “The Spicy Hot Dogs,” and the MYP band “Coldflame.” We’ll have more musical performances on Wednesday at the Battle of the Bands, with the PYP band competing at 10:15. On Thursday, KISPA will host a multicultural celebration, “One World, Many Cultures.” We will start the day with an assembly in the atrium, and then KG will have the opportunity to participate in 21 different arts-related cultural experiences outside from 8:30 – 9:00 am. Children are invited to wear cultural clothing, whether it represents their own cultural background or any other that they are inspired to wear. On Friday morning, we’ll assemble for a closing ceremony with some more musical performances and sharing of the art work created throughout the week. Then, Friday afternoon (1:50 – 2:30), get ready for busking! All kinds of performers have signed up to show their talents outdoors busker-style, complete with hats to collect any pocket money you’d like to give to show your appreciation. This KIS tradition has been a favourite in the past, and money collected will be donated to a worthy cause. Send your child to school with some small denominations of money if you’d like them to contribute.
Math Inquiry Area
The new math inquiry area set up in KG invites the children to explore number, measurement, data, shape and space through hands-on activities. Many children have already visited the centre, and we look forward to seeing how this area will inspire curiosity and problem-solving in our community of inquirers.
