Key Stage 2: A busy and safe first half term!

It has been a fabulous and busy start to Term 1! We have plenty to look forward to with Loy Krathong and Christmas up next. And to end a great half-term, Year 3 have raised money in spectacular fashion while the Ecobeast's have a new initiative.

It’s hard to believe that we are at the end of the first half term. I’m sure you are all as happy as we are that we have managed to keep things as normal as possible while keeping safe to make sure that the children have really enjoyed their start to the new school year. The last few weeks have been very busy, and this week is no different as Y4, Y5 and Y6 will have their enrichment days to celebrate reaching the end of their Aztec, Roman and Egyptian topics. Y6 will also be heading over to High School for the first time to watch and take part in the Poetry Slam. We hope that everyone has a great week in the lead up to the half-term break and that you all have a relaxing week away from school.

Y3 - Skip to it!

Last week, Y3 got their bounce on as they worked extremely hard to raise money for Operation Smile, as well as working on their fitness. The children did a great job on a very hot day and showed the hard work they had put into practising their skipping.

International Day

Last Thursday and Friday, KS2 was awash with colour as we held our annual international celebration. Across the two days, the children got to participate in a range of activities which saw them travel around the world learning dances, singing songs and doing a wide range of arts and craft activities.

On Thursday, KS2 were entertained with two amazing assemblies which showcased the arts in Primary School with Dance, Music and Drama. The parent-led show on Thursday breaktime was enjoyed by a large crowd who were excited to watch some cultural dances from within our community. Thursday afternoon also saw the Y4 to Y6 children take part in the Karaoke Competition run by our Languages department. It was amazing to see the talented performers wow the crowds while singing in a different language.

As always, on Friday we were all treated to another spectacular culinary journey around the world. We would like to say a huge thank you to the PTG and all of the parents who gave up their time to make this event so special. The children were able to try a range of sweet and savoury delights from different countries, which included for the first time Lithuania and Burkina Faso.

Christmas is coming and It’s time to make Krathongs!

With International Day under our belts, it’s time to start thinking about our next big events. As always, we will be celebrating Loy Krathong in school with assemblies celebrating this Thai festival of giving thanks to the water goddess as we near the end of another rainy (very wet) season. On Friday 30th October the children should come to school wearing traditional Thai costumes. For those new to the school or new to Thailand, here are some examples of what to wear.

Pridi 20 Entrance

Over the weekend, modifications were made to the Pridi 20 gate. A new smaller gate was installed with an RFID lock. Most families remembered to use the main car park for drop off and pick up and, happily, the additional traffic didn’t impact the flow through the car park.

Please remember that this gate should not be used for drop off and pick up and the main soi and the Sub-sois should not be used for parking for any STA cars.

Against Fast Fashion: New Ecobeast Project calls for International Day donations

 

Key2_13

The Ecobeasts have been busy so far this term. As well as making a great start working in our new secret growing garden, the children decided to embark upon two new projects. The first one will be closely linked to the garden and focus on the importance of eating locally grown fruit and vegetables.

In our second project, the children are learning about and taking action on the issue of Fast Fashion. Peach (Y4S) and Finfin (Y4J) have already designed a cool logo for the project. Clothing production accounts for 10% of global carbon emissions while the average white T Shirt requires 2700 litres of water to produce. This TED-Ed  video gives good insight into the subject.

One solution is to be more mindful about how much use we get out of the clothes we buy. We already have regular second-hand uniform sales run by the PTG but would also like to help families re-use costumes from all our fabulous dressing up days.

Last year, the children collected lots of outfits for Book Week, which we will sell in time for Book Character Day when the time comes, with the children to decide how to use any ‘profit’.

We would like to ask parents to donate any left-over International Day costumes which may be useful for International Day 2021.

There will be a donation box by the front gate and we kindly ask that parents label the donations with the relevant country and the age of the child for whom the costume may be suitable.

The Ecobeasts will carefully store the items in time for an International Day costume sale next year. Many thanks in advance for your support.

Let your child’s creative juices flow!

If your child enjoys writing, they will LOVE this worldwide creative competition for KS2 children: My Country.

The competition has a theme: ‘My Country.’ It requires the children to write a piece about either the country they are from, their ideal country or their favourite country in the world. Besides providing a great opportunity to showcase your child's writing skills, there are some great prizes to be won. More details can be found on the website.

The piece of writing must be completed and sent from home; however, your child’s teacher would be more than happy to give some feedback before it is submitted.

 The deadline for entering the story is Sunday 1st November 2020.
