This term 4 is all about innovation. Students get to make machines, to explore different kind of materials and to identify different characteristics of machines. Students also get to learn about inventions. They are encouraged to invent something that has never been invented before. All of these machines serve the same purpose: allow humans to do less manual work. Please have a look at some incredible inventions by our little Sunbirds!

There is a strong connection between physical activity and academic achievement. Students who are physically active tend to have better grades, school attendance, cognitive performance and classroom behaviors. ISSP Sport Day offered students 2 days of having fun with their friends through competitive sporting activities.

Để con lớn lên cùng sách

"The goal at ISSP is to create exciting spaces where students have access to age-appropriate books. At home, parents can also help their children create their own reading spaces. It could be a small bookshelf, or a library dedicated to reading. These spaces should be as comfortable as possible, so our children want to spend time reading there" Ms. Elizabeth Hinson, ISSP Librarian.

Grade 3 students used the knowledge and understanding they learned throughout this school year, to make their own books! The books were sold during the G3 Book Fair. Students were encouraged to use their soft skills to ‘sell’ as many book as they could. Students used their marketing and communication skills to persuade readers to buy their books! Well done G3 Students!

"Trao quyền" cho học sinh được tự học

Student Agency at ISSP: Student agency plays a foundational role in growing active learners. Instead of simply having "brains on chairs", we, as educators, are fostering a love of learning that will last a lifetime. We are equipping our students with a deeper toolbox of skills that is transferable to the many contexts of life. Students are not just a receptacle for knowledge, but instead one that shares, as well as receives. We are growing 21st century learners to have the skills necessary to be global citizens who are effective contributors to our society. Ms. Cassia Mick, kindergarten teacher.

On the last day of Term 3, ISSP students got together to celebrate all of their hard work before heading off to spring break. At our SOAR assembly, we celebrated birthdays, acknowledged students with 95% or better attendance, and enjoyed some fun inter-House competition with a giant game of Rock-Paper-Scissors. Bohol was the House that came out on top for Term 3, earning the most SOAR points for the term.

Kiểm soát cảm xúc khi dạy trẻ

What is positive parenting?
Simply put, it focuses on supporting a child to develop their strengths, rather than drawing attention to their weaknesses. Positive parenting also focuses on giving loving attention to the abilities that best help your child to develop in a healthy, well-rounded way. Please read an article in Vietnamese on Nguoi Lao D**g newspaper regarding how our Head of School, Mr. Lester Stephens, views the benefits of positive parenting.

Kiểm soát cảm xúc khi dạy trẻ Khi trẻ không nghe lời, ngang bướng, nhiều phụ huynh, giáo viên có xu hướng sử dụng đòn roi để giải quyết. Nhưng đó chưa phải là cách dạy con tích cực, cần thay đổi để có thế hệ trẻ tốt hơn về tư duy

We learned and celebrated other cultures all over the world throughout the week and we can't wait to share more photos, videos, and stories with our community. Look for more posts coming soon!
