April 5th

An activity called “Daily5”, where the older boys and girls read books to the kindergarten children was introduced. A student from G5 is reading a picture book to K3 children.


April 12th

Our “program of inquiry” class, where kindergarten and G1 students jointly engage in learning a single theme across different subjects, was introduced. This is a feature of the PYP (Primary Years Programme) of the International Baccalaureate (IB). Students are learning about “means of transport” through role playing. What do you ride when you go to Disneyland? Why?


April 19th

A day in Kindergarten was presented. Scenes from students learning English, as well as scenes where everyone is eating snacks (recess) was shown. Students are also being taught the importance of interacting with children from other countries.


April 26th

The G2 Math class was shown. There are many scenes where you can see students teaching their classmates; this is a feature of the PYP of the IB which stresses not only the importance of one’s own learning but also the importance of being able to convey to others, what you learned in a manner that is easy to understand.


May 3rd

The program took up the K4 “Show and Tell” time. Every day, a couple of children bring to school anything they like from their home and make a presentation on them during homeroom time before the end of the day. On this particular day, a child bringing a stuffed toy is explaining about the stuffed toy’s character. There were many questions from the classmates.


May 10th

This time, the coverage was on our cafeteria. Many different kinds of food are prepared for students from different countries. Everyone is enjoying the food which is not only tasteful but also nutritiously balanced. Individual needs for students with allergies or religiously prohibited foods are also catered for, which is reassuring.
