Songkran Assembly

Published Friday, April 11, 2014.
Last updated: Friday, April 11, 2014

On the last day of term, all of the children from the Primary School got together in the Sports Hall to celebrate Songkran. It was an assembly organised by our wonderful Thai department, but ultimately it was run for the children by the children; it was a great occasion to be a part of. Some of the children from 2S took part in the drama, which was enacted to teach us all a little more about the festival and why it takes place. Other Year 2 children also took part in the dancing and the acting - they all did an excellent job!

Have a fabulous Songkran and I look forward to seeing all of the children again on Monday 21st April for the first day of Term 3.

Kind regards,

Mr. M.

Happy Songkran, from 2S

The Primary School looking forward to the Assembly ...

The stage - ready for the children to share their knowledge about Songkran.

The KS2 MCs ...

Our Year 2 stars!

Traditional Thai music.

The blessing to wash away the old and welcome in the new ...

Songkran Splash Day!

Published Tuesday, April 01, 2014.
Last updated: Tuesday, April 01, 2014

The children had a wonderful time celebrating Songkran by liberally splashing water on as many people as they could with an assortment of different squirting devices!! They did not stop running around, laughing and talking as they went, from the moment we arrived at the field to the moment we left. One of their favourite activities was the dunk tank, where their friends had to throw a basketball at a target to try and make the plank fall into the water, dunking whoever was sitting on it. The whole experience was a great start to our last week of term and we are looking forward to the end of the week when we get to celebrate again at our Primary School Songkran Assembly.

Year 1&2 Choir

Published Saturday, March 29, 2014.
Last updated: Saturday, March 29, 2014

2S have many talented performers and 7 of them are members of the Year 1&2 Choir. On Friday, they joined their friends in the choir and performed 2 songs for us in a special assembly in the Theatre. They were like a warm up "act" for the KS2 children who gave us a brief preview of Peter Pan, which will be performed next week to packed, sold out audiences.

The children sang beautifully and received appreciative applause before returning to their own seats to watch exerpts from Peter Pan.

All ready and excited!

Singing their first song ...

Enjoying their second number ...

Diamond Ranking with 2S and 2L

Published Wednesday, March 26, 2014.
Last updated: Wednesday, March 26, 2014

In our Thai Humanities sessions over the past few weeks, 2S and 2L have been learning about beaches and holidays, both now and 100 years ago, and then comparing and contrasting them. They have found out about the different features of beaches around the world, the different activities that you do now compared to 100 years ago as well as things like the clothes the people wore and how they got to their destinations. In our lesson together yesterday the children were given the challenge of sorting lots of beach and holiday related words into groups of their own choosing and then having to justify their choices. After that they had work together to "Diamond Rank" a selected group of words and order them, again giving reasons for their choices. The lesson was a great succes as not only were the children able to display their knowledge and understanding gained over the course of the past few weeks but they showed how well they could work and collaborate in groups and also justify and explain their reasoning. A huge well doen to you all.

The initial groupings - can you work out the children's criteria?

The first "group" ranking using the Diamond Rank sheet - using the children's own criteria:

Duscussing what should go where ...

The second Diamond Rank, where the children used it as a top to bottom order list:

Finally, working on their own to come up with their own ranking list of activities and features:

Pirate Flags Ahoy!

Published Monday, March 24, 2014.
Last updated: Monday, March 24, 2014

Over the past few weeks, 2S have been designing and making their own pirate flag (with Ms. Jane, Miss Yim, Mrs. Helen and Khun Pla) that would have flown at the top of their mast had they been a pirate. They have used many art skills to create their masterpieces, including tie-dying, printing and sewing. As you might imagine, they are delighted with the results and although not all of them are finished yet they should be all done by the time Songkran comes around. Please enjoy a selection of the photos that have been shared with me of the children working on their masterpieces!

Fantastic pirate flags. I can see that an enormous amount of hard work has gone into the making of them. Great job Me Hearties!
