Modern Foreign Languages meal

On Thursday 10th March, Mr Pradic and Mr and Mrs Harrison took students learning French and Spanish for a meal at the Alliance Française to experience some real French culture.

Modern foreign languages meal

A great time was had by all, and the students enjoyed eating such culinary delights as Confit de Canard, and Quiche Lorraine. A great time was had by all. Next time, we are off to have some Spanish tapas!

Activities and updates from Reception!

We had great fun making porridge in cooking this week. We had read all about the three bears making porridge so decided to have a go too. We used oats, milk and water and then cooked it in the microwave. To some of the porridge we added honey, which made the porridge far too sweet, to some we added salty, which we didn’t like at all and to the rest we added a small amount of sugar. The porridge with just a little bit of sugar was just right!

We played some games in the swimming pool which has helped us to become much more confident in the water!

Coming Up In Boarding

Last weekend’s activity was a paint-balling trip which a small number of our boys attended. I think they enjoyed the opportunity to shoot at staff members! Much fun was had, and importantly no injuries! There was also an impromptu football game between the students and the boarding staff. Although outnumbered and with a low percentage of the possession, I am pleased to say that the staff were triumphant displaying some effective counter-attacking football.

Coming up this weekend we have organised a BBQ social on Friday evening. Saturday during the day is one of our service projects. We have some students from a local football initiative, aimed at keeping young children off the streets, coming to use our facilities. We will organise a small tournament for them and finish with a refreshing dip in the swimming pool. On Saturday evening students will be able to visit the mall for some shopping, to watch and movie, and/or have dinner.

Primary Maths Fobisia Tournament 2016

The British School, Guangzhou hosted the FOBISIA Primary Maths Challenge from 11 – 13 March 2016.

Thirty schools brought teams of 4 students and competed against each other in a series of challenges. There were logic problems, puzzles, races and tests.

Data, Jojo, Sun and Tara (all in Year 6) represented our school and did a fantastic job. They missed out on the top prizes but had a brilliant time and enjoyed themselves.

We can’t wait for next year!

Year 4 Thai Trip to Rattanakhosin

Year 4 went on a trip to this famous museum. We saw a movie about the history of Thailand (Siam). Then next we heard the story about people from old Thailand and the old buildings.

Next we learned about how Thai people traditionally made food and farmed rice. We looked at how people used to dress long ago in traditional clothes.

After a snack, we went to the games which Thai children played in the past. That was a lot of fun.

Finally we learned about traditional puppet shows and tried to do it ourselves.

We all had a great day out with the Thai department teacher.

“Weighing things up” in Reception!

We have been using the seesaw in the playground to help us to learn about weight. We found out who was heavier, lighter or about the same weight as ourselves.
We also used balances and cubes to weigh different objects around us.

Welcome letter from Head of Primary

a-Rachel_0002webDear Parent,

We have enjoyed another wonderful week of successes in the Primary and Early Years departments. The first great news that came to me on Sunday was that our Primary Team came 2nd in the Tournament of Mind competition at ISB.

Our team beat all the other schools in Bangkok and were awarded the 1st place in Thailand. As a community we are very proud of the children who competed as the tasks are very challenging and all ‘student led’. The children and Miss Golland (supporting teacher) gave up many of their lunch hours to practice their performance and prepare for the tasks. A very big ‘well done’ to them all and a big thank you to Miss Golland.

This week the Under 11 girls had a wonderful match against SIS and won 2:1. Again this was a very proud moment for the whole school community.

Have a wonderful weekend!

With best wishes,
Rachel

Partial Solar Eclipse

On Wednesday the 9th of March at 07:38am Regents International School students were lucky enough to view one of the rarest celestial events, an eclipse of the Sun.

The Sun was partially eclipsed for nearly 2 hours and at its maximum coverage, 41% was hidden from our view by the Moon.

Many students took part and viewed the event through pin hole cameras, the camera on their mobile device and most successfully by looking through a CD. All of these methods made it safe see what was happening and gave us all an unforgettable experience.
