Foundation Stage & Key Stage 1: Free to play in a messy way

At St Andrews International School Bangkok, we have long been proponents of Free Play and Messy Play, both at school and at home, and warn against overscheduling children with too many ‘planned activities’.

 

This week Rachel Nahmias, our resident Play Therapist shares an article with you about the benefits of play for all ages.

And on the theme of messy play and its links to learning, Mr Steve was in the right place at the right time last week when he came across some Year 1 children carrying out an interesting activity. They were having a great time with this sensory experience and there was some fantastic vocabulary coming out of it, too.

Bug Club Online Reading Books from Reception to Y6

You should have already received information from Mrs Leanne our Literacy Co-ordinator about our exciting new online resource.  The new Bug Club membership is meant to supplement (not replace!) the reading books that the children bring home.  The books in your child’s My Stuff area have been allocated by the class teacher, and just like regular reading books,  are leveled to their ability.

The great thing about the books are the activities that accompany them.  By engaging in these activities. you can help extend your child’s reading comprehension and phonics knowledge.  

If you haven’t tried them yet, log in soon.  We think they will appeal to everyone.  Contact the class teachers or Mrs Leanne if you have any questions. The website is easy to navigate but we plan to hold a workshop soon.

Rescheduled Reception Reading Meeting

The postponed reading meeting will now take place after school this Thursday in the G Block.

If Reception Parents have not had information about this they should contact the class teacher for more details.

INSET Day Closure

Please remember that the school is closed for students on Monday 25th September so that teachers can participate in a wide variety of In-Service Training, known in the UK as INSET.
