Foundation Stage & Key Stage 1: STEAMing ahead to greater sustainability

The future of our planet is in our hands and children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 at St Andrews International School Bangkok have been working towards greater sustainability through a number of different ways. Read on to find out more...

Way back in August we welcomed some special visitors as the World Wildlife Fund for Thailand came into school to teach us about Tiger Conservation. This was something that really interested our FS3 children as they are, of course, named after big cats. This interest has stayed with them all year as they thought of a way to make their own contribution to the protection of tigers.

On Friday 24 May the G Block was humming with activity as the students hosted a Save the Tiger Auction.

They had worked hard preparing their art pieces for the exhibition and were supported by the Y2 Japanese students who were also doing work around this topic.

Ms Cherry and our prize-winning STA Dance Squad produced a dance piece for everyone to enjoy and over the course of the morning we managed to raise almost 30,000 baht towards a terrific cause.

Thank you to all the parents who came along to make generous bids for the fabulous art and we hope everyone enjoyed the morning.

STEAMing Away - Miss Sarah Cook

Last week, Primary had a STEAM-tastic few days of fun and exploration. The buzz of excitement around the school was immense and I think it’s safe to say students and teachers alike all had a wonderful start to term 3.2. Linked to the work of three real MIT professors, students at St Andrews International School Bangkok worked on a range of tasks which challenged them to work creatively, collaboratively and carefully, generating some very innovative ideas - we definitely have some designers of the future in our midst.

Earlier on in the year our Foundation Stage children had fun upcycling old T-shirts into superhero capes and masks which are still favourites in the dressing up box!

In Year 1 the children focused upon Ms Emma’s poorly arm, thinking about inventions which would make her life easier. Some groups concentrated on making her sling more dynamic by adding colour and pockets for her phone, water bottle and other everyday necessities, whilst others helped her walk the dog or eat by creating self twiddling spoons for spaghetti and scooping the soup to aid her one handed.

In Year 2 the children found out about the super qualities of different minibeasts and insects. Using their new found knowledge they went on to create super-beasts combining features and adaptations which they thought were useful.

Meat Free Mondays?

As part of our ever-increasing interest in a sustainable future, the students across the school have been finding out more about eating less meat.

As Ms Helen explains below:

Proposed by our Eco Beast Club, STA has moved on to the next stage of becoming a more progressive eco-friendly school. We will be joining an international movement of schools and individuals who have decided to go ‘Meat Free on Monday’ (MFM) This will be trialed on Monday 17 June and Monday 24 June with a view to starting it officially when we return in August. We have been working carefully with our catering company Epicure who fully support this initiative and have developed an exciting range of delicious vegetarian dishes that are high in nutritional value that we are confident the kids will enjoy.

If you would like to find out more about the motivations behind the movement then please join our "Food for Thought' event on Friday 7 June which will be held in the Sports Hall. The Eco Beasts Club have teamed up with both the WWF and experienced nutritionist Cristina Azcarate to present the reasoning behind the MFM campaign and why we feel it would be good for the STA community to support it. The presentation will run 3 times so that everyone has an opportunity to see it. The times are 1.30 - 2.00, 2.30 - 3.00, 3.30 - 4.00. In between the presentations, you will have the opportunity to engage with vendors selling a range of organic and plant-based foods. Our partners are Green Grocer@ Icon Siam, Org box, Patom, Green Vibes, Veggie Crush and Olive Retreat. Green vibes will be giving away simple veggie recipes and running a cooking workshop starting at 2.05 p.m., 3.05 p.m., 4.05 p.m.
