There has been even more excitement from the children this week as their new IPC units begin to evolve.
On Friday, our students from Year 5 thoroughly enjoyed their trip to Phu Vinh Village, a small village about 30 km south-west of Hanoi. For over 400 years, this village has been famous for producing high quality rattan products, using historic methods of crafting. The children took pleasure from immersing themselves in this traditional culture and they gained valuable information about environmental protection, as the artisans in this village use environmentally friendly materials. The visit was a perfect way to launch their new IPC topic, “Control Climate Change”. Congratulations to the staff involved in organising this successful outing.
In terms of sport, students from nine international schools in Hanoi were invited to join our Year 5 students in an athletics event earlier in the week. Although there was an element of competition, the aim was to enable children of all abilities to improve their personal performance and have an opportunity to collaborate as part of a team. The children were exposed to a wider range of sporting activities that enabled them to develop fundamental movement skills such as: throwing, kicking, running, jumping, and balance. In addition, the afternoon created the opportunity for them to build on their fitness levels too. I would like to thank the teachers and coaches from all of the schools involved for providing our children with this great opportunity.
It has been a wonderful week. I hope you have a wonderful weekend too.
