Wow, this is my last post of the year! I can’t believe how fast it has gone but more importantly how much growth every child had made during this year. We were looking at some photos this week that were taken at the beginning of the year and the children were commented how different they looked. As a new teacher to to the school I have been super lucky to have such a great class to teach this year. Thanks to all you parents for the wonderful support.
Please encourage your child to keep reading during the summer. Reading in your mother tongue is extremely important. Children can access dream-box during the summer to keep working on math.
For those families who are leaving ISB, I wish you all the best and would love an email from your child. I look forward to seeing the returning (soon to be Grade 4) students in the halls next year.
Thank you for the lovely gifts, I will treasure the photo and enjoy the health spa vouchers. Have a fantastic summer.
Mrs B. ….. over and out 🙂
It was great to see so many parents at marketplace and music share this week. Both were such awesome events and showed that the students are very talented and reflective. The marketplace required the students to use so many skills and it was great to see these being applied in a fun engaging task.
Next week we will be having some more ‘fun’ end of the year events mixed with finishing up some of our units. On Wednesday we are having a ‘camp learned a lot’ day where children can choose 3 fun activities to attend. We will have a small end of year celebration on Friday morning with a pancake breakfast for the children. Pancakes have been ordered. A reminder that school ends at 11:30 on Friday 9th.
Sadly we are farewelling seven students from ISB. Dana is moving to Germany, Shana is changing schools within Bangkok, Aroosh and Junior are moving to America, Rishu is still waiting to find out his next location, Ben is moving to Belgium and Anton is moving to Qatar. We wish those families leaving all the best and much happiness in their new locations.
Have a great weekend 🙂
Another busy marketplace week. The children reflected after last weeks marketplace and made some great changes. Some simple, others changed their entire business. We are looking forward to parent marketplace next Wednesday 31st May. Please note that it will run from 8:20 to 9:20 am. I will have money for you to spend. Please be sure to visit other classes and leave space for customers to attend your child’s store.
On Monday Mrs Armitage will be visiting and we will be sharing our persuasive writing about why we should continue to have marketplace in grade 3. The children have come up with some great reasons and it is evident that they see the all the learning involved in marketplace.
This week we started new bookclubs but we continue to read through the lense of social issues. We tried groups of 6 students this round to see if it promotes better discussions.
In math we have been learning the vocabulary of geometry and continue to work on solving 2 step word problems using the RDW (read, draw, write) method.
Have a great weekend and we look forward to seeing you on Wednesday morning at 8:20 for marketplace 🙂
