TOM After School Club

Children from Years 3 to 6 joined the Tournament of Minds After School Club. They were set short team challenges such as bridge building, creating a scene and story with a limited variety of materials, directing a ‘blind’ partner through a mine field and saving a gummy worm. Two groups worked each week on a long challenge where they had to adapt and dramatise a popular book. They chose to perform their versions of Matilda and the Gruffalo. These challenges develop their teamwork, communication, creativity, problem-solving and thinking skills in a fun way.

Early Years perform at the Recital

We really enjoyed watching and listening to children from Reception playing instruments such as the piano and violin at the Early Years and KS1 musical recital this afternoon. We enjoyed looking at the suits of armour on display in the Knights Room too.

Thank you to everyone who joined us to enjoy Reception’s musical talents.

Weekly Debate (June W2)

The students expressed some interesting viewpoints during the debate last week. The topic was “Formal titles in schools are outmoded; titles should be abolished and staff known by their first names” on which the majority of the students felt that formal titles in school show respect to teachers and being on first name terms would denote a lack of respect.

Each week students are challenged to engage in a whole-school debate about a variety of different topics.  The Weekly Debate is an excellent forum for students to learn about and question new things; improve their written English and hone their skills of evaluation.  The Weekly Debate takes place on padlet – a wonderful tool which shows a live feed of students’ opinions and ideas.

Burn It Off Week

Last week our secondary school students burned some extra calories with the teachers and their classmates. Here are some pictures of the fun filled ‘Burn It Off’ week.

Year 7 Residential

Here is a little throwback to our recent Year 7 residential trip to Samae San Island. The students thoroughly enjoyed the beach activities and had a fun time bonding with their classmates!

Weekly Debate (June W1)

“This House Believes all teenagers should take a mandatory ‘parenting class’ before leaving school.”

Summary:
While some students thought that parenting classes were a positive initiative to promote education and awareness around parenting to enrich the lives of the future generation, the vast majority of Regent’s students believe parenting is a skill which should be learnt within families, cultures and traditions, not taught in an institution.

From the Head of Primary

Dear Parents,

As we come to the end of a very busy week I have the chance to reflect on what a fabulous school we have here at The Regent’s.

We have received several awards recently including 6 trophies from the Primary FOBISA Games and over 50 medals. During the games our children competed with great stamina and team spirit. This was then followed by the news that our Coding team came 1st place in Thailand in the FOBISIA Coding Competition and runner up in South East Asia. We are all very proud of our team!
Today we concluded our week with a fun filled swimming gala and saw the Yellow Tigers win both the Upper and Lower Primary competition. Well done to all the staff who supported during the day, especially Mr Bond (PE Co-ordinator) for his organisation and dedication.

Have a great weekend!

With best wishes
Rachel

3M Greek Masks

3M have been learning about Greek mythology in Literacy and CCS. The students really enjoyed the art project which involved planning a design for a Greek mask, making it out of clay and painting it. The project was a success and the masks look brilliant!

Boys’ Boarding Trip to Suphanburi

On the 28th and 29th May some of our boys went on a weekend trip to Suphanburi. This town, about 2 hours from Bangkok, is home to a few of our boarders. We got to spend some time with their families, and in addition we had VIP access and the opportunity to watch a Thai Premier League football match – Suphanburi vs Bangkok Glass.

A big thank you to Phoom and Moss` families for the great time we had on our weekend away.
