‘Green Fingers’ in 1D
Grade 1D have been very busy over the last few weeks learning lots about plants during the topic ‘Green Fingers’. Students have been learning what is important for plants to grow, and had the opportunity to plant their own plants. Each morning, the students have been monitoring their seeds closely, checking that they have enough water to grow. They now understand that plants need water, sunlight and air to grow. Some of the students have seen their seeds grow a lot over the last week and it won’t be long until they turn into a big plant! They can now see the root, stem and leaves and are eagerly awaiting the next step in the process. The students have practised and developed skills such as thinking, inquiring, caring and reflecting during this exciting project.
Secondary Learning News
Over the past few weeks, Grade 9 students have been busy making presentations to the local government about how to prepare and avoid the occurrence of four selected natural hazards: earthquakes, tsunamis, typhoons and volcanic eruptions. In teams of four, students must demonstrate collaboration, teamwork, interaction and self-reflection in order to achieve their group goal. They extended their learning by reflecting on the previous projects they worked on during the academic year. We look forward to the group presentations this Wednesday.
Learning Enrichment Week
Through last week’s Enrichment Week, our Secondary students were kept busy and challenged through a unique schedule of workshops, collaboration and independent learning that celebrated Chinese culture and expanded our international-mindedness. Importantly, the week also allowed our students to show their intelligence and skills in different ways, and further develop areas of expertise or learn new ones. A special thank you to our volunteers for your time and support!
