Foundation Stage & Key Stage 1: A glance back and a good look forward

So much happened at the end of Term 2 at St Andrews International School Bangkok - read on to find out how much fun our children had...Term 3 will be equally as busy and there are some important diary dates to take note of.

Welcome back to the final term of a very busy year, filled with learning!

This term we welcome just a few new families across Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 and are confident that it won’t take too long for everyone to feel part of the St Andrews International School Bangkok community. New families are invited to a Coffee Morning this Friday (26 April) at 8.00 a.m in the Drama Studio to find out more about the way we communicate with and the opportunities open to our families.

The last week of term was filled with highlights.

One of the main events on the Key Stage 1 calendar was the Y1 Expo - an exhibition that was a culmination of the learning from the first two terms. Each of the classrooms was developed into a unique learning habitat, and we took our visitors around the world as they travelled through rainforests to polar regions.

The children demonstrated some very sophisticated learning and were very mature and articulate as they shared their learning with their visitors. Their reading, writing, singing and computer coding were just some of the things presented. A fantastic exhibition Y1. Everybody was very proud of you.

Molly Fantasy

Foundation Stage 1 also had an exciting morning in that final week of term. With their teachers and an army of parents, the children boarded buses and fastened their seatbelts (all part of the adventure), and headed off Molly Fantasy at Gateway, Ekamai.

Like parents, teachers love to see the children outside of the school environment. Often they see different character traits coming through, and see children showing resilience and with a bit of encouragement trying things that are more of a challenge. There is also the opportunity to teach children new words and lots of terrific role play opportunities.

Happy Songkran

Friday was a fantastic way to end the term.

The day started with most of the children offering alms to the visiting monks - a new experience for many of them. The children handed over their gifts of food before making their way into assembly.

I have seen a lot of Songkran assemblies over the years, and all of them have been beautifully presented and performed, but it is hard to think of an assembly that was filled with more talent and fun! Anyone lucky enough to be there, will know what I mean. It was a perfect combination of ceremony and entertainment.

The Thai teachers and Estates team had done a marvelous job preparing the Sports Hall. The singers and musicians, who have been working with Ms Alice to perfect their song, were incredibly confident and professional, and we have never seen dancers so lively and obviously enjoying every second of their performances. A huge thank you to Kuhn Toey, Kuhn Ball and Kuhn Elgar for being so happy to join in the fun!

The fun continued later in the day with the children being invited to join in the water play with their friends and teachers - add to that an ice cream and the day certainly seemed to have something for everyone.

The White Elephant finally arrived

The White Elephant stall ran slightly differently this year with the children doing most of the shopping. Children had money to pick up a bargain, and it was lovely to see some children sharing a few baht with their friends, so very few people went home empty handed. There were a lot of parents around on Friday and many of them were also tempted by a bargain or two.

Anything left over was taken away by Second Chance so nothing was wasted. It was great to see pre-loved items finding new homes.

The Grand Raffle Draw

The raffle was also drawn on Friday during the KS2 Assembly, then beamed over to High School for the older students to enjoy. Only the main prizes were drawn live and all prize winners will be notified as well as the list of winners being available on Facebook, on Moodle and in the Office.

Key Stage 1 Reports and Consultations

Key Stage 1 Reports were published on Saturday 6 April and are now available to you via Moodle. If you have any problems accessing them please contact the office once school reopens. We wanted to get reports to you before the start of Term 3 as consultations are on Tuesday 23 and 30 April.

As usual, you may be able to see teachers outside of these times, but for this please contact teachers directly.

Important notice

Because of the number of Mondays that we lose due to various holidays this term, on Wednesday 8 May we will be running a Monday timetable. If children normally have PE/Swimming/Music etc on a Monday, they should come prepared for that lesson on Wednesday 8 May.

Teachers will remind the children closer to the time but please help them to prepare the right things for the day.

Please note that ECA activities will stay the same - the timetable change will only run until 2.30 p.m.

(Future notice that Thursday 23rd May will also be run as a Monday timetable.)
