UN Day 2020

The theme for this year's UN Day is based on the importance of dialogue and communication. Students at AIS created dialogue within their classrooms as to what the world would be like in 2045. Students were set the task to create dialogue surrounding world issues. They then needed to come up with how their class can create action in their local community. The image above shows children wearing their traditional costumes from their home countries. 

During October, we have also been acknowledging Dyslexia and we held a day when the entire school community wore red in support of #DyslexiaAwarenessMonth.

The PYP team was evaluated by the IB and they showcased their professionalism and knowledge in their classrooms as well as during individual interviews. Some children were also chosen to speak to the IB representatives.




Autumn break

At AIS we have concluded our first Unit, “Who we are” and this week the students have their Autumn break.

During the past few weeks, Grade 3 to 6 took part in some different outdoor games during the house sessions, see image above. The students were working in teams or individually to compete. House points were awarded to students for things such as cooperation, sportsmanship, participation and enthusiasm. It was great to get outside and enjoy the last of the warmer weather.

We also hosted the annual running event. Well done to all students who actively participated in the Cross Country championships at AIS! We had perfect running conditions in the forest and it was great to see all the students enjoying themselves. Special thank you to all the parent volunteers, without you we could never have had such a successful day. 

We hope everyone has a healthy and relaxing break and we are looking forward to continuing our learning next week. 



Outdoor learning

This week we completed a series of overnight cabin trips with some of our students. The younger grades were driven to Blåfjellhytta in Heggedal, while the older students endured the three hour hike there. The point of the trip was to get the students out and active in a natural surrounding. They also were taught about vegan and environmentally friendly food and prepared their own meals. Finally, it was an opportunity for them to become better acquainted with their peers and to have fun!

At school, Grade 1 has been busy colouring flags from the countries they and their families come from. The flags are hung up in our classrooms to celebrate the diversity of our students.

This week we will carry out the Nasjonale prøver for our students in Grades 5, 8 and 9. We wish our students the best of luck! 



Cycling club

At AIS we have started with a bicycle special lesson for the Grade 5 students. Once a week they are taught about cycling techniques and safety on the road. These skills are very important to have as a child and the activity also allows for the students to be active and have fun.

Grade 1 is continuing to explore their first unit, Friends and Family. This week, the children made a class friendship chain to hang in their classroom. It has been wonderful to see the children making friends and showing caring and respectful attitudes toward their classmates!

For September, the Language of the Month is German. The whole school will be learning some key phrases and we hope to host a few parent led zoom storytelling sessions. If you would like to be involved and help us celebrate German this month, please get in touch with Miss Angie or Miss Rebecca. Danke!
