Message from Primary

What a great first term we have had in Primary!

In case you have forgotten, here are some of the highlights:

Meet the teacher, PTC's, UN Day, Book week, visiting Author, Global Games, Y3 Camp, Academic Olympiad, dress as your favourite book characterAutumn Fair, Winter fair, Thanksgiving Lunch, bake sales, Foxes trips, SISA swim meets, Pfrang fundraisers, Story Trail in the Valley, Inter House Football, class assemblies, House Captain elections, Student Council elections,  Manga High Maths Challenge, STEAM  challenges, school photos, community choir, community jazz band, orchestra, Christmas show  and thats even before I mention our topic based learning.

Y1 visited the Nanjing Museum for their 'Dinosaur Planet' topic; Y2 visited Duchesse Bakery to learn how to make bread for their 'Muck, Mess and Madness' topic, Y4 climbed Fangshan Mountain for their 'Misty Mountain Sierra' topic and Y5 visited Baijaihu 1912 and rode the Ferris Wheel (and managed to squeeze in a cheeky ice cream!) for their 'Scream Machine' topic. You would think there was no time for class based learning at all, but at the end of November years 2 - 5 undertook tests in Reading, Maths and SPaG, as well as completing two "Big Writing' tasks during the second half of the term. The results of these tests show that our students are making good progress and will inform us where we need to focus our teaching next term.

As we come to the end of our first term I would like to thank everyone who has helped make this term so great for our children, from teachers, TA's, EAL teachers, Learning Support Assistants, Admin staff, Admissions and marketing, music department, PE department, Chinese department, Ayi's, bus drivers and not to mention parents and the children themselves. To those families leaving at the end of this term. I wish you the very best of luck in your new homes, thank you for being part of our school and our community. To those of you returning in January, I look forward to welcoming you back; and to everyone, may I take this opportunity to wish you a happy holiday and a peaceful new year.
