Hello 4A Parents!
This is a busy and exciting time at SIS. While we are continuing our studies of informational writing and reading, systems and structures of living things, and investigating fractions we are also getting busy in so many other ways. Our trip to Hong Kong for the overnight with Dragonfly was a smashing success with students having a blast and gaining a greater understanding of themselves and their grade 4 community. They reflected, using SeeSaw, on their learning in terms of the PYP Learner Profile. We’ve also just had our SIS 3-5 Field day event which brought the community together in another way. It prompted students to work in multi-grade level groups and collaborate to complete a variety of sports related challenges and games. Our brilliant PE faculty and supporting staff put on another awesome event. Later this week we have the G4 music performances as well. Mrs. Sheppard has put together a wonderful collection to be enjoyed by 4A parents in the Gecko Theater at 8:30 on March 14th. Finally, our trip to the Shenzhen Safari Park will occur on Friday! We will be extending our understanding of animal adaptations and survival by observing real animals in their simulated environments. This is a wonderful and productive time at SIS. We’ve got more coming with Book Week next week and the PSA Talent Show auditions. I think the students will be ready for the Spring holiday from March 23rd-31st.
As always, I greatly appreciate your trust and support in both myself and SIS,
