Foundation Stage & Key Stage 1: The Yuletide season is just around the corner

Last week was again a busy one at St Andrews International School Bangkok, and it was nice to see some special events benefiting the outside community. We are trying hard to make sure that when children work together to raise money for a cause that they know exactly what their efforts and fundraising will be supporting. The House Leaders especially drive this forward in the Primary School.

Community of Compassion

In the lead up to Christmas, STA is renewing our yearly commitment to helping those in our local communities who are less fortunate than ourselves. We invited in Debbie from the Central Thailand Mission to talk to the children about their appeal for non-perishable goods which we are collecting in cardboard boxes at the entrance to the school. The response from the STA community has been exceptionally generous and Debbie was able to explain to the children how their donations will be used and why this kind of work is so important. Miss Helen also spoke to the children about how the donations we will collect from the Bubble Run will be used to enrich the English Teaching Program at the Mercy Centre which works with underprivileged children and orphans. The children were really engaged in learning how they could help local people in need and learning how they can affect a positive change in their community, even at such a young age.

The KS1 Bubble Run

What a wonderful way to start a Friday morning! Year 1 and 2 children had a great time last week raising money for charity by participating in our amazing Bubble Run!

It all started with a dance warm up led by Dance Teacher Miss Jen, a friend of the Mercy Centre and St Andrews. Then the children raced around the school as many times as they could in 15 minutes. It was wonderful to see how many parents turned up to run with the children and cheer on the different houses. In the end there were many tired but happy little faces as the children made their way back to class to receive their well-earned House Points. What great fun, and in addition, we raised nearly 10,000 baht for the children at the Mercy Centre. Well done everyone involved!

A Focus on Y2

Quite often there is so much going on in school it is hard to include everything in our weekly newsletter.

This week I have asked Ms. Lauren to share some of the things that have been happening in Y2 recently, and also give everyone a sneak preview into what is planned for the next few weeks.

A Look Back at International Day

We had a wonderful International Week in Y2. We would like to thank all of the parents that came in to tell us more about their culture.

The children really enjoyed hearing traditional tales from other countries, having a go at making crafts and tasting some sweet treats!

Thanks again to those of you who kindly volunteered your time. We hope to have many more opportunities throughout the year for parents to come into the classrooms and join in with our learning!

The week ended with our traditional international day feast - the spread as always was fantastic and the children (and teachers!) thoroughly enjoyed sampling delicacies from across the world. A big thank you to all of those involved in setting up such a wonderful banquet.

Y2 Getting Bossy!

Over the past few weeks the children in Y2 have been extremely bossy - but it’s ok because we have been learning how to write instructions! The children have been using imperative verbs to give instructions about how to make a paper airplane. Paper planes have been seen whizzing around the shared areas and out of the Y2 windows all week!

We are very impressed with the progress the children are making with their writing and it has been lovely to see the children so actively engaged throughout Literacy lessons. Please continue to check your child’s SeeSaw account daily to have a look at their work. The children really love reading your comments.

Christmas is coming!

With International Day behind us, plans are now afoot for the next big celebration in the school year. The Estates Department is dusting off the Christmas Trees, the Music Department is polishing the sleigh bells and the children and teachers are practicing their carols.

This year we will hold separate musical celebrations for Early Years, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2:

  • Early Years and Reception Celebrations
    Friday 8th December @ 8.05am and 8.30am - Shared Area
  • Y1 Musical Christmas Picnic
    Tuesday 12th December @ 8am - Y6 Quad (Covered Grassy Area)

Y2 Christmas Show - Save The Date!

'The Little Lost Kitten' will be coming to a Drama Studio near you soon! Year 2 are already full of Christmas spirit and rehearsals for this year’s Christmas Show are underway.

Parents are invited to come along and watch the performance. There will be 2 performances in the Drama Studio this year:

  • Wednesday 6th December @ 12:30pm.
  • Thursday 7th December @ 8:30am.

Details about signing up for Y2 tickets via Moodle will be sent out shortly . Other shows do not need tickets.

Ho Ho Ho!

Mercy Centre Christmas Gift Collection

Every year in Foundation Stage and KS1 we hold a Christmas Gift Collection for the children of the Mercy Centre, and every year we have been amazed by the generosity of our families. Following our final Christmas Show we traditionally load up a couple of minibuses of gifts to be delivered to the children of the Khlong Toey Community.

This year again we ask for your donations. It would be great if each family could provide one gift with a value of 300-400 baht. The gifts should be wrapped for Christmas and labelled with BOY or GIRL as well as the age for which it is suitable. We also ask that it is not a toy that needs batteries as often children cannot afford new batteries.

Boxes for your donations will appear in each shared area during the first week of December.

Thank you in anticipation as we know you and your family will support this worthy cause.
