There has been lots happening during the last couple of weeks at AIS. The chess team played really well at the chess championship this weekend - with AIS coming 21st place with 5 points! For most of the team it was their first 3-day tournament and for a Grade 6 student it was his first ever chess tournament which makes it all the more impressive. Above is a picture of some of the team members, well done! ♟
The Grade 5 students presented a version of The Lorax before the exhibition. The exhibition was a culmination of hard work and effort from the Grade 5 students.
At AIS we celebrated World Book Day April 24th, 2019. A huge thank you to our parent volunteers in Grade 1 during AIS World Book Day. The children loved having you share your stories with them.
Last week in Mandarin lessons, Grade 6 students played a memory game to review and consolidate the new words they have learned in this unit in order to prepare them for their summative assessment. The students had an exciting experience playing the game.
Grade 2 have been presenting all their learning from their inquiry into how the world works. Students collaborated in pairs to demonstrate an experiment that shows a changing state of matter. The demonstrations also included posters and Google Slides presentations. We loved watching each other's presentations and filmed them to share with our parents on Seesaw.
At the moment all staff members are taking part in an AIS Staff Get Active program. It is based around encouraging one another to be involved in any type of physical activity. To involve the students we have a fun competition during every Monday's assembly so they can also see teachers being risk takers and stepping out of their comfort zone. This week’s activity was a squat challenge.
