Talent Show

Last Friday, I was lucky enough to attend both Talent Shows. It was amazing to see the variety of talent we have at St Andrews International School Bangkok. There was definitely something for everyone with displays of musical ability, dance skills, gymnastic moves, stand up comedy, storytelling and ventriloquism to name but a few. We hope that the students who performed enjoyed their moment in the limelight and also, that it inspired others who would like to put themselves forward for next year’s showcase, which should return to our Fun Day event.

Jonathan Camm’s Visit

Last Thursday, all KS2 children were lucky enough to spend time with our visiting author - Jonathan Camm. Jonathan spoke enthusiastically about his life as an author, and he focused on his ten top tips on how to produce a great story. Reading extracts from one of his books allowed the children to hear good examples of building up suspense and how it is important to 'paint a picture' in the readers' minds when writing stories. At the end of each session, he allowed time for the children to ask any questions you had for him. Jonathan was very impressed with the questions that the children asked.

As Jonathan was selling his books during break times and after school, it was super to see some eager children already starting to read one as soon as they had bought it!

I know the children enjoyed Jonathan's visit, and I received this email from him: I'd like to say a huge thank you to you and the St Andrew's community for welcoming me into your school and for such a wonderful visit. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole day and loved meeting you and all of the students during the four sessions.

World Maths Day

World Maths Day (WMD)/Pi Day is on Thursday 14 March 2019. To celebrate this, students across the school are encouraged to take part in the “Maths Hat” Competition. Children can decorate an existing hat or make their own displaying maths concepts of their choice. House points will be awarded to every student wearing a maths hat on Thursday and certificates will be awarded to class winners.

Visit from Miss Yoshimi - Bookworm Foundation

110319 ks2 11

Next week we will have a special visitor in the Primary School. For those of you who were here last year, you may remember Miss Yoshimi who helped the children learn all about how blind people use braille to read.  She will be coming again to help children learn more about braille and following her visit we will be holding a read-a-thon to raise money for her charity

Yoshi is the driving force behind the Bookworm Foundation - previously known as the Always Reading Caravan. We have been supporters of Yoshi’s Foundation for a couple of years and really enjoy her visits.  This visit she will be holding a Parent Workshop - details of which will follow by email within the next couple of days.

How to do it:

The children will bring home a sponsor form and before reading they can approach family members and friends as sponsors to pledge a certain amount of money per book they read.  Fill in the sponsor form on the back of the paper. For example, Mum might write 5bt per book and Dad might say 10bt per book, ask your neighbours and friends too. You are to collect as many sponsors as possible for the event.  

They then spend each day of Book Week sharing/reading as many books as they can (cover to cover).  Every time they read a book ask your child to colour in a heart shape.  Try and encourage a different book each time but with early years children is ok to read the same book.

Bring in the money you have raised, in an envelope with your sponsor form and your name,  on Friday 5 April so we are able to give the money to the charity.

If you have any questions regarding this event, please email Mrs Meg meg.ki@standrews.ac.th">meg.ki@standrews.ac.th or your year leader.  

The more books you read and the more sponsors you have the more money is raised for this worthwhile organization.

Book Week

This year, Book Week takes place in the week beginning 25 March. We usually have a visiting author, however, this year, for a change, we will be inviting an author and illustrator - Karin Littlewood - to work with the children. As always, during the week the children will take part in a range of activities and competitions based around books. The week will finish with our annual Book Character parade. You have plenty of time to start getting creative and think of a fantastic book character costume for your children to wear for the parade.

Karen Littlewood

Throughout the week, Karin will be showing presentations of her work to the children, as well as running workshops with each year group. She will be focusing her activities around one of the wonderful books she both wrote and illustrated: 'Immi'. This is the first time we have welcomed both an author and an illustrator, which is very exciting. Karin really promotes the use of picture books with children of any age, so I'm sure the children will gain a lot of new ideas from spending time with her.

110319 ks2 16

During one lunchtime, Karin will be running a session for parents, in which she will give ideas of how to read with children at home. Details of this session will be sent out soon.

Karin will be selling her books during lunchtime and after school. Only a limited amount of books will be sold, so it will be a first come first serve basis. Here are the details of the books Karin will be selling:

  • Immi 350B
  • The Colour of Home 350B
  • Star Girl 350B
