  • Join us for our PET  Welcome Back Party on Saturday 9 September 6pm -9pm.
  • We kindly ask that parents stay in the playground in the mornings and encourage their child to come up to their classroom with their teacher and class.
  • Please ensure that your child has the correct school uniform. In particular please ensure your child is wearing black shoes. Girls should wear plain white socks and boys should wear black or grey socks. You can review the school’s uniform policy at http://www.nordangliaeducation.com/our-schools/shanghai/puxi/our-students/student-life/our-school-uniform.
  • Please remember to send in and label your child’s snack box and water bottle, as well as a hat during the hot weather.
  • Homework will be given out on Wednesdays and expected in on Mondays.  Last week the homework was optional and entries can be brought in.
  • If for any reason your child is unable to take part in PE, please send a signed message in your child’s communication book.  Your child still needs to bring in their PE kit to enable them to participate as a coach, an official or to give feedback.  If your child would be swimming, they should bring their normal PE kit.
  • ECA and BISCAP. Both programmes will begin on Monday 4th September.
  • Reuse, Reduce, Recycle: Second Hand Uniform Sale

Did your child outgrow their old uniform tops and bottoms? Did your child graduate from Primary to Secondary? Do you have unwanted uniform items? Will your family be moving on from BISS Puxi to new adventures? Please consider donating all your unneeded BISS Puxi uniforms to the Second Hand Uniform Sale. All items can be dropped at the Primary or Secondary reception desks throughout the school year. All items need to be clean and in good condition, thanks for your support.

Please come and restock your children's Primary and Secondary uniforms at our sales on Thursday, September 7th from 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm in Primary Gallery.

This week in Literacy lessons the children will read the story of ‘Dogger’ by Shirley Hughes.  They  will explore how Dogger felt during different parts of the story and think about how they would feel if it happened to them.  The children will then write captions, linking what they read or heard to their own experiences.  They will begin to punctuate sentences using a capital letter, full stop.
