Foundation Stage & Key Stage 1: Not just counting down the days

Counting was a feature of last week at St Andrews International School Bangkok with Maths Day in focus, and a Christmas-sy feel as we countdown to the festive season.

With children beginning to practice for their Christmas Shows, the mood is starting to get increasingly festive, but there is still an emphasis on learning.  Last week culminated on Friday with Maths Day, and all through the week there was a heavy focus of maths-related activities. In FS1 things were happening in the kitchen as maths and Christmas combined with the delicious result of Gingerbread people.  The children had a great time counting and weighing…and, of course, eating the finished products.

So much maths comes out of the cooking along with the fun.  We encourage everyone to spend more time in the kitchen!

It was lovely to see so many children and teachers in their home-made Maths T-Shirts on Friday, and explaining to their friends what the maths on the T-Shirts was all about. Ms Lydia was particularly proud of her T-Shirt as it was and designed and created by her class.

Y1 Students had a great time counting out their ‘100 Things’, and counting who had the longest line.

Thank you to parents for helping to create some really mathematical masterpieces and for Ms Tracey for getting us all excited about maths!

Tanzania Dress Up Day

Our High School students are very lucky to have the opportunity to go to Tanzania on a Nord Anglia Education Expedition. On this, they venture into the local community and to embark on a number of community service projects which support the local people. The children’s flights, accommodation, etc. are all paid for by them, but the money that goes towards supporting these projects is raised by them through a number of events and activities organised by them.

Monday 9th December is National Tanzania Day.  On this day to help support our High School students children in Primary can choose to come to school wearing an outfit that is Tanzania themed. This could be simply wearing the colours of the Tanzanian flag or they could be more daring and could come dressed as an animal that you might find living in the wild in Tanzania.

To take part in this non uniform day we ask the children to bring in a suggested donation of 50 baht.

Changes to the Mercy Centre Christmas Collection

Families who have been with us a while will know that each year at around this time we do a collection for the Human Development Foundation - Mercy Centre

In the past we have always collected toys for the children but in recent years they have had more and more schools and organisations collecting these. This year we called and asked what it was they needed us to contribute to the community. The contact at the Mercy Centre was pleased that we had called and explained that what they wanted from us was the everyday items listed below:

  • UHT Milk - small boxes 

  • Dry food

  • Glass noodles

  • Sauces for cooking

NOTE: There is no need for rice at the moment as they have a large supply

In addition, they are also requesting:

  • Pillows

  • Thin blankets

  • Tank-tops, underwear etc.

  • A4 Paper

There is no need to wrap any of these items, but there will be boxes places in all of the Foundation Stage and KS1 areas. Help us to explain to your children why we are collecting these things and even if they are not able to go shopping with you to buy the items, please let them put them into the collection box themselves.

The Friday Night Game

Some of you might have heard of ‘The Friday Night Game’, a popular Basketball event that has been hosted at High School. We are pleased to announce another of these exciting evenings coming up at the end of November - and all for a good cause.

The Nord Anglia Expedition to Tanzania has in recent years become an important highlight on the calendar of some of our older students, as they travel to Africa to take part in community projects. One of the conditions of their place on the expedition is to do the majority of fundraising themselves.  Check out the poster below for details on how you can contribute just coming to watch a little basketball, some amazing dance performances and more.
