We hope you all have a good holiday and we look forward to welcoming you back on Monday 9th April.

MESSAGES

  • The 22nd April 2018 is World Earth Day. This is a global involving 1 billion people in 192 countries each year, making it the largest civic-focused day of action in the world. There is a multi-year campaign beginning this year to ‘End Plastic Pollution’ with goals to end single-use plastics, promote 100% recycling of plastics and promoting alternatives to fossil based fuels.

At BISS Puxi we will be holding an earth week, commencing Monday 23rd April 2018. The week will begin with an ‘Air Aware Day’ including assemblies for children and talks for parents.

In support of the WWF’s work in this field, pupils are being asked to attend school on Wednesday 25th April dressed as their adopted animal (Snow Leopard, Panda, Tiger, Asian Elephant or Orangutan) and pay 20RMB which will be donated to the organisation in support of their work.

After the break, you will also receive notice from Year Leaders across the school regarding a plastic project each Year Group will participate in. This can be anything from making a video, a community project, designing jewellery or clothing from recycled materials or a campaign to reduce the use of plastic in some way.

We thank you for your support and participation in this matter and look forward to you joining BISS Puxi in helping or earth!

  • The Year 4 Showcase will take place 13th April at 9:00.

LITERACY AND MATHS

This week, we will be in the Da Vinci Centre – see Themed Learning for details!

THEMED LEARNING / COMPUTER PROGRAMMING  AND  DIGITAL LITERACY

It is our Da Vinci Centre and Parent Showcase week! This week, the children will be learning different skills which will help them out as they move towards Year 5. These will include using the ‘Green Screen’ in a more advanced way, problem solving using teamwork, producing technical drawings, programming an EV3 robot using sensors, and collaborating to design explorers’ shelters. The children will then be taking the opportunity to teach some of these skills to parents on Friday in the showcase!

PSHCE

We will continue with the PSHCE / well-being program and the  core value of collaboration.  This is the ability to work constructively with others, and children will learn to negotiate, to resolve conflicts, and to support agreed solutions. In doing so, they will strengthen their sense of teamwork and realise where they lack certain skills; which they can later hone.

KEY VOCABULARY

Compassion, feelings, understand, help, friendship.
