Foundation Stage & Key Stage 1: More than meets the eye

We look back on a fantastic International Day at Primary School...Sign up for the annual flu vaccination programme...We will be celebrating Frightful Friday this week, so get your Halloween costumes ready...Calling all students to design posters for next week’s Nursery Rhyme Week.

 

Welcome back to the second half of a very busy Term 1. It was amazing to look back at all the learning opportunities that happened in those first weeks of term. There could be no better way to celebrate than a fantastic International Day. The children had an amazing experience in the week leading up to the big day and a big thank-you to all of the parents who came in to spend time in the classes doing cultural activities. Every year we say that the day can’t get any better, yet somehow every year it does!

This half term will be no less busy than the first one - with the popular Frightful Friday happening this week.

Flu Vaccination Programme

We have recently shared with you the details of the St Andrews annual flu vaccination programme, which will be held at the Primary Campus on Friday 8th November 1pm-4pm. The programme- in collaboration with Samitivej Hospital- will, as usual, be open to all members of the family.

This programme is popular and we need to make sure that we order enough of the vaccine in advance of the 8th November. Please complete the google form below to register:

Flu Vaccination Form

At the end of the Google form, you can download the medical forms, which must be completed for everyone who is having the vaccination. These must be brought with you on the day of the vaccination. Each shot is a very reasonable 590 Baht.

*Please remember that a family member needs to collect your child from class and take them for the vaccination. You may collect the children from class before the end of the day to have their vaccination. Following the vaccination the children should be taken home.

Frightful Friday

Back by popular demand!

On Friday 1st November we will once again be holding our Frightful Friday across the Primary School. This will give the children another opportunity to wear their Halloween costumes and enjoy some spooky activities with their friends at breaktime.

In our continued efforts to be more sustainable, our teachers are talking to the children about using costumes they already have in their dressing up boxes and creative with what they have in their wardrobes rather than going out and buying something new for this event so please feel free to join us with this message.

Celebrating Nursery Rhyme Week 4-8th November

You might remember last year’s Nursery Rhyme Week, that literally stopped people in their tracks on the way into school with the popular pop-up Nursery Rhyme Tent! This proved to be such a popular event, it has now found itself a permanent place on the school calendar. Keep an eye out for the tent during our Nursery Rhyme Week and join in the fun. But why are rhymes something to celebrate? Mrs Meg, the event organiser, explains and advertises this year’s request for posters.

“Experts in literacy and child development have discovered that if children know at least 8 nursery rhymes by heart by the time they are four years old, they are usually among the best readers and spellers in the class by the time they are eight years old” (Mem Fox, Reading Magic). 

This short blog helps explain the importance of Nursery Rhymes.

To celebrate our Nursery Rhyme Week there is an opportunity to design a 'Nursery Rhyme with Lyrics' poster to put up around the school. Last year there were some fabulous efforts and it was wonderful to see so many children reading them and saying the nursery rhymes. 

The children can complete the activity at home, in CFT time or in the Library throughout the week. 

Please send your completed posters to Mrs Meg in room S16 and I will put them pride of place around the school.

Loy Krathong 

On Monday 11th November we will be celebrating Loy Kratong in school. For those of you who are new to Thailand, Loy Krathong takes place on the evening of the full moon of the 12th month in the traditional Thai lunar calendar and is a celebration at the end of the rainy season paying thanks to the water goddess, Mae Kongkha (Mother of Waters). The krathongs which people make and float on the waterways of Thailand are offerings to her.

The children and staff will all come to school wearing traditional Thai costume. These costumes will be readily available from local markets - our nearest market is behind Pridi Banomyong Soi 2 - large supermarkets and specialist stores, such as Phahuratdotcom.

There will be special assemblies on the day that parents are welcome to join - details of which will follow.
