Year 10 News - 29 January

29 January 2016

With the new term now well underway, students in Year 10 are now in the full flow of their academic studies. This has given the opportunity for some of our talented sports men and women to focus on their competitive sports. I would like to congratulate all the students selected to represent the school at under-19 level in their respective sports. This is an outstanding achievement where Year 10 students will be competing with, and against students up to 4 years their senior.

The students selected for football are:

Football boys: Luca and Naser.

Football Girls: Sarah, Isabel, Annefloor, Giulia, Chiara, Josi, Lovisa

The students who competed in the recent U-19 ACAMIS Basketball tournament in Beijing were:

Basketball boys: Ticiano

Basketball girls: Giulia (selected for all-star team) and Isabel

Match report by Isabel:

ACAMIS was a very rewarding experience that not many people get the chance to have. It was a great three days. The team was united and even though we were outnumbered by all the other teams we kept pushing until the end. We came really close to winning the semi-final but then lost 20-18 in over-time. In the end we came third which was still an achievement for the team and we came out the tournament with our heads held high and with the honour of representing NAIS Pudong.

Swimming - Finally, I would like to wish good luck to Martin, Alex and Gaia who travel to Phuket, Thailand this weekend to represent the school in the FOBISIA swim competition. All the best!

Business Studies - Students have been pitching their perfect perfumes this week, after deciding on their target market. They have evaluated the advantages and disadvantages of niche and mass markets to come to their decisions. With some amazing artwork and clever branding it's clear we have some budding apprentice candidates in the business department! – Mr. Groark

Business Studies students are starting a new Topic: Marketing. Their first unit looks at the role of marketing, why markets change in terms of consumer spending patterns and competition, and how businesses respond to these changes. It also explores that differences between mass marketing and niche marketing as well as how and why market segmentation is carried out.

Biology - Year 10 set 3 were modelling the digestive system and made faeces in the class. A memorable experience that they won't forget. – Ms. Alderson

Economics - As part of the "Occupations and Earnings" section of Labour Economics, the Y10 Economics students put their Christmas holidays into practical use. They conducted fruitful interviews with friends and family members who are working, to determine the net advantages they gain from their jobs. A variety of presentation methods were applied, ranging from video to audio and written interviews. There was a wide range of professionals interviewed, ranging from a Regional Vice President in a Fortune 500 company to an "ayi". This provided the students with an opportunity to understand why differences in wages and other benefits exist between, and sometimes, within professions. – Mr. Gichana

Geography - Y10 students have started a new unit on Economic Geography and have been investigating how employment structures change as a region or country becomes more economically developed. This has involved research and skills development using CIA, UN and atlas based data and presenting it using a range of high level techniques including stacked columns and line graphs and triangular graphing techniques. – Ms. Kilpatrick

Mandarin - IGCSE intermediate class is learning how to say different subjects. They discuss their favorite and less favorite subjects and learn how to describe their daily routine.

Physics - 10 Set 1 have been researching the advantages and disadvantages of ways of producing electricity - Mr. Howell

Set 4 have been learning about the different methods that heat can be transferred and how to keep hot liquids hot and cold liquids cold.

Chemistry - Set 3 has started the acids and alkalis topic, revisiting work from KS3 and building upon it to give KS4 answers to questions. Focusing on reactions with acids to include all tests for gases evolved and predicting the names of products formed.

History - Beginning new module on USA in the roaring 20s. Students will be conducting initial research and presentations into specific topics.

D & T - Students have made a great start to their portfolios and have been learning about what makes a good design brief.
