Dreams!

Our final topic in Year 1 is ‘Dreams'. This topic will focus on fantasy lands, dreams and aspirations as the children get ready for their move to Year 2.

The children will be listening to different fantasy stories and will be looking at the different elements of a fantasy story, such as, settings, characters and magical objects. The children will be telling their own stories and will then move onto writing their own stories towards the end of the topic.

Some stories you might like to read with your child are: The Sandcastle, Billy's Bucket, Mr Benn, Where the Wild Things Are, The Magic Bed, Jasmine's Box, Magic Key books, Magic School Bus etc

 

Year 1 have been visited by Monks
Year 1 were visited by a group of 20 Monks this morning (Tuesday) and the children were able to make merit by giving alms to them. It was a wonderful occasion and one that the children thoroughly enjoyed. The visit was an ongoing part on "Our Wonderful World" topic and allowed the children to experience firsthand something very special to Buddhists in Thailand.
 

Our Wonderful World!

The children have been very busy with their new topic ‘Our Wonderful World!' We began the topic by looking at where we live in Thailand and the children did lots of research on Thailand and their home countries. From this they will then talk about and find out about another country that they might like to visit. When they do this, they will begin to make some comparisons and discuss ways in which the two countries are the same and are different. As part of this topic the children will also be learning a lot about Buddhism when some local monks come into school and when they visit Wat Kra Tum for their final trip in Year 1.

 

Songkran in Year 1

Songkran (and the celebrations for the New Year) has now come and gone - with a lot of fun being had making people wet!

 

Year 1 were able to celebrate it a little earlier as the school had set up some wet fun and games for the children to enjoy during the last week of term. The children loved being able to soak their teachers (and each other) whilst also enjoying the water slide, the dunk tank and the "jail". It was a great way to enjoy the warmer weather we were experiencing and put everyone in a great mood!

 

Red Nose Day 2011

Year 1 had a wonderful day on Friday, 18th March, celebrating "Red Nose Day". Everyone made a big effort to get dressed up in something funny and colourful and lots and lots of money was raised by all of the children and staff in the Primary School - nearly 140,000 Baht! We all thoroughly enjoyed the silly acts that we watched in our special assembly - especially the one where Mr. Brown told a story about the 3 Bears and everyone was covered in porridge! The best bit was when Mr. Brown was chased by all of the bears and was covered in custard pies!

 

Once Upon A Time!
 

The children have started a new topic called ‘Once Upon a Time'. They will be listening to and sharing many different Fairytale and Traditional stories. We will be talking about story characters, settings and magical objects. The children will be talking to each other and sharing well-known stories. To gain a greater understanding of the stories and how they are made up from certain elements, the children will be acting out the stories and ‘stepping out' the different parts. This will help with their sequencing skills and understanding of story structures, which will help them write a re-tell of a story later on in the topic. There are many fairytale and traditional stories in the Primary Library so please go and have a look!

 

The Toybox!

 

This term we will be starting a new topic called ‘The Toybox'. The children will be talking about their favourite toys, describing their features and how they are used. They will also be listening to lots of toy stories and discussing some adventures they have shared with their toy. Further into the topic, they will also get the opportunity to look at some older toys and discuss ways in which different toys have changed over the years. The children have already been busy coming up with their own ideas for their new topic and they are so excited about the next few weeks ahead.

 

'Let's Celebrate!'
 

This half term, the Year 1 children will be starting a new topic called "Let's Celebrate!" This topic is looking at what, why and how we celebrate things. We will be starting our topic by discussing all of the different celebrations we know of and participate in. Some of these might be; Loy Kratong, Chinese New Year, Diwali, birthdays, weddings, Christmas, family reunions etc. We will be focusing on the part that food, music, dance, costume and decorations play in each celebration. Through this topic the children will be expanding and improving upon their enquiry skills and they will be learning about and developing a greater understanding of celebrations around the world. We are all very excited about this topic and are sure the children will thoroughly enjoy it too!

 

Samrong Market!

As part of their topic 'Growing, Growing, Grown!' Year 1 went to Samrong Market this week. They had a great time using the coins to buy all sorts of different fruits. When they came back to school they used their fruits to make a fruit monster!

 

Have a look to see what they got up to...
