Yesterday was our last day of school. We celebrated the end of the school year and said our goodbyes to students and teachers who are leaving.
Afterwards we said special goodbyes to teachers who have worked with this year who are leaving: Ms Skrtic, the principal, Ms Arnold, head of learning support, Ms Marnie, our Performing Arts teacher, and Ms Grant, the teacher librarian. We also said a special goodbye to Ben who will be moving back to the US this summer. I know everyone will really miss him!
As Andy wasn't able to make it back from the US to say goodbye to us, we also made him some short videos.
For those of you who are moving on, we wish you well and will miss you!
For those of you who will be back in August, have a great summer and we look forward to hearing all about your adventures in August!
With the end of the school year very soon upon us, yesterday we had our End of Term Party. We had a wonderful afternoon celebrating with our families and friends.
This week was the ISS Swimming Gala. Despite some dark clouds and wind first thing in the morning, the clouds dissipated and it was a beautiful sunny day for it.
This morning Ms Leah was away so Mrs Cunningham taught us instead. We went back in time with her to 1977. Schools were a little different then.
In Math, we have started learning about directions and mapping. Today we had a treasure hunt. We had to read clues and find our way to the 'treasure'.
Olivia: Today I'm going to talk about cars. Long, long ago they didn't have cars in Korea. They had chariots and people carried them. And then they had cars. And now they have unmanned cars.
This boat is made of wood. A long time ago people just made boats by cutting trees and tying the wood together. And then they would go fishing and things in Korea. Now they ride in boats. Now the boats in Korea we drive and there are two floors on the boat. If you go a long distance, you can go and sleep downstairs and someone else can drive. There are lots of motorised boats now.
To find out what life was like in our parents' and grandparents' lifetimes, we created questions and interviewed our parents and grandparents. Then we presented our interview results to the class.
We found several similarities and differences between life now, when our parents were young and when our grandparents were young.
We are a class of Grade 1 students at an international school in Singapore hoping to share our learning with you.
