This week at AIS, Grade 8 students took part in a teacher vs student battle ball competition. This is in connection with their service which is to raise money for a Norwegian organisation called MOT which helps people make the right lifestyle choices. Both teams battled it out while other students cheered on both teams. The score was 2 - 1 to the students but both teams put in a gutsy performance. Not only did they have fun but they also raised a lot of money for a good cause. See the image above.
Grade 1 were lucky to welcome Susanne into school this week and she shared lots of her Space knowledge with them. The children loved having an expert to answer all their questions. They all learned so much.
Grade 4 has been working on solving two step word problems. This week they played 'Mathlympics' where the students had to work together and teach one another how to solve the problems. Once they were finished they had to show their answer and each person had to be able to explain how they got it. A correct answer earned a house point and advanced them to the next question. Fun was had by all!
Tomorrow, we will celebrate Chinese New Year and the Grade 10 students will teach the PYP students to make a Chinese knot bracelet they have learned. They have been practising to prepare for this event.
