Foundation Stage & Key Stage 1: Year 2 takes flight

Year 2 students from St Andrews International School Bangkok visit The Royal Thai Air-Force Museum… Last Friday our teachers seized the opportunity for some professional development...Find out about our plans to ease the traffic situation around Primary School in the near future.

Last week saw the first of this term’s KS1 Educational Visits.

Miss Lauren describes the highlights:

Last week two very excited group of Year 2 students, parents and teachers boarded buses in preparation for ‘take off’ to the Royal Thai Air-Force Museum as part of their Transport topic.

Upon arrival, the children were given a tour around the aircraft hanger and had the opportunity to climb aboard some of the helicopters and sit in the pilot's chair - a fantastic opportunity to really bring our topic to life.

Next, our guide explained all about how The Royal Thai Air-Force fighter jets had played a part in Thai history. We were shown a short video of fighter jets swooping through the skies. The children were very impressed with the fighter jets’ aerial acrobatics.

After that, the children took a walk through the ‘history of flight’ looking at air-crafts from other counties and were able to see the parts of an aeroplane engine up close.

The children (and teachers) very much enjoyed seeing all the different aeroplanes, helicopters and other aviation equipment displayed at the museum. We would like to say a big thank you to all of the helpers and the staff at the museum for a wonderful trip.

Professional Development  Day

Whilst hopefully our families enjoyed a relaxing long weekend, teachers were in school on Friday for the first INSET (Training) Day of this year.

There were four main areas of training on Friday. Whilst some teachers focused on Science and STEAM training with Ms Sarah C and Mr Jon, another group of teachers from across the Primary School took part in our First Aid First Responder Training with Nurse Debbie Thompson. This is an Emergency First Aid at Work programme that all teachers will take part in. The afternoon saw a large group of teachers and support staff enjoying an introduction to simple sign language, which is becoming increasingly popular in schools for use with younger students and children new to English or developing their communication skills. Maybe your child will come home and show you a sign that they have learned.

Parking at the Primary School

Over the first few weeks of term there has been congestion around the Primary School campus at 2.30 p.m. due to the limited size of our front car park. Some of the pressure has been alleviated by parents taking advantage of the MaxValu parking and shuttle bus service as well as parking at Gateway and using that shuttle bus. The start of the extra-curricular programme will further split the number of children being collected at the end of the day into slots: 2.30- 2.50 p.m. and 3.45 to 4.00 p.m.

Please be aware that there is some construction taking place at MaxValu which started on 10 September and is due to run until 2 October. From 24 September there will be four generators on the site. Please take extra care when using this parking facility during these dates.

We realise, however, that this does not solve the problem and we have been continuing to look for other solutions.

We have been very fortunate to have had discussions with the owners of the land adjacent to Soi 26 on Sukhumvit 71, which is very close to the Primary School. This is a large area of land which has already been initially developed and covered with a concrete floor. The landowners are looking to open a really impressive market in the near future, which will be called Suk 71. They have agreed that we will be able to use this area for our school community to park their cars at the beginning and end of the school day which will be a huge benefit to our community. We are in the process of working out the details with the Suk 71 owners which will include our school security guards being present throughout the day to help parents to access this parking and ensure that is clear of our school communities cars at the end of the school day. I look forward to telling you more about this great development in the near future.
