Year 8 - 22nd April 2016

Many thanks to all the parents who attended the Year 8 Awards Assembly last Thursday. This was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the students since the start of the school year. Every student went away with an award, either a nomination or winners certificate! Students were awarded for effort and/or achievement in all academic subjects. Several students were also awarded for meeting or exceeding targets in five or more subjects. Special mention should go to Yukiko, Hannah, Bianca and Jocelyn, who received all ‘Excellent’ in all subjects. Year 8 should be proud of their achievements this year and continue to work hard and put maximum effort into lessons – it pays off! Well done all.

The Global Campus and Creative Writing Competition

We are delighted to announce that the final winners of this year's Creative Writing Competition have been selected by the Global Campus judges. The judges have been on the edge of their seats, lost in the worlds our students created, inspired, devastated and moved by their writing. Congratulations to all students who participated in the Creative Writing competition. We are excited to announce that Courtney Gill in Year 8 will have her entry published in this year's Global Campus anthology – special congratulations!

With such wonderful entries, some our students have been chosen to have their hard work showcased. Congratulations to Freddie McLuskie and Matthew Ward, both in Year 8, who wrote excellent Biographical Sketches.

The Global Campus ‘Be Ambitious’ Challenge

During the first term, students around the world were challenged to explore our new philosophy at Nord Anglia, ‘Be Ambitious’. To celebrate their findings and understandings, students were asked to create a product or piece of media that best represented their discussions and findings. We are excited to celebrate the achievements of our own students here at NAIS Pudong. Andrea Fabbricatore, Jonah Yearwood and Noah Saponara in Year 8 achieved the ‘Most Inspirational Quote’. Unfortunately Noah has since relocated to our Beijing School; nonetheless, we will celebrate the achievements of all three of our students and congratulate them in achieving this excellent challenge. Additionally, each student will be receiving an Amazon Voucher from the Global Campus Team.

The Global Campus is always full of challenges and competitions to extend students’ learning and encourage them to Be Ambitious. It is an excellent and unique platform to allow our students to grow and be the best they can be.

Hei Yiu 8a for English

In English, we have been studying the gothic horror genre. Recently, we have been looking at Edger Allen Poe and we learnt about "The Tell-Tale Heart" and "The Raven" which are a short story and a poem. For our homework we had to create a video, showing either about "The Tell-Tale Heart" or "The Raven"; our group, including Jocelyn, Hannah and me decided to do "The Raven" because we think that it has a really good storyline even though it is a poem. The picture shows a drawing which we used to create the video. In the video we moved the man and made a raven that flew in; we also opened the door to show that there was nobody outside.

Jocelyn Teoh 8A for Art

In Art, we learnt to create a piece of decayed-looking artwork, which means that it isn't supposed to be neat and tidy, but to look dirty and messy. For an example of a decayed piece of artwork, we used cardboard and ripped the sides of it to make it look messy but good, and we picked out parts of a skeleton that we wanted to sketch and drew it on with charcoal pencils. Then, we ripped strips of colored tissues and stuck it on with PVA glue where it would look artistic and, finally, we dripped and splattered dark-coloured paint on the piece of artwork.

Bianca Verni 8A for Science

In Science we are currently learning about respiration. During these lessons we dissected a lung to learn more about the respiratory system and how our lungs work. We also pumped air through the trachea (wind pipe) to the lungs to understand how our lungs expand during this process.

Tinah Otula 8A for P.E.

In P.E. we are working on our swimming skills. Recently, we were breaking down the steps to two strokes, backstroke and free style. We have been improving our swimming and hopefully next week we can work on the harder strokes like butterfly and breastroke because I think my class is advanced enough to start learning the harder strokes.
