In celebration of International Women’s Day Reception Class shared some fantastic beach and ocean stories by the very successful and amazing female author of children’s story books, Julia Donaldson. We explored why we celebrate International Women’s Day and learnt that it is a special day to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of women around the world. Today we celebrated the amazing achievements that Julia Donaldson has had in writing her own picture books for children all over the world to enjoy, such as Gruffalo, Monkey Puzzle, Stick Man, Tiddler, Sharing a Shell, Zog, Snail and the Whale, Room on the Broom and many many more! In their Mandarin session the children continued to learn about International Women’s day and made some beautiful artwork to celebrate.
Happy international Woman’s day! In 4A, we found out why we celebrate this important day and the importance of treating everyone equally. We were amazed to learn all about the activist Malala Yousafzai.
From discussions and presentations in Guidance lessons to a QR code treasure hunt, students learned about female pioneers in many different fields including those whose achievements are in STEAM subjects, which is of particular relevance to many of our students given NAIS Pudong’s collaboration with MIT. Students made videos discussing the female role models they found most inspirational and were encouraged with suggestions of further reading and research.
