30 April 2021 - Starting The Term With Great Learning

30 April 2021 - Starting The Term With Great Learning

Our first week back was yet again a week filled with great engagement and (therefore) great learning. This week it was particularly evident in all the IEYC and IPC Entry Points in the various year groups.

  • Our Early Years children got visited by a dinosaur when they opened their IEYC unit ‘Dinosaur Detectives’. 
  • The Year 1 children imagined what it would be like to be someone else who works in an interesting job during their Entry Point ‘A Day in the Life’. I particularly enjoyed a visit to the hair salon for a blue hair colouring! I do think teachers loved this activity as they could connect with the dreams they have been having for a long time. For example, Ms. Chloe changed into ‘Coco Chanel’!
  • In the same week, our Year 2 students were planting seeds in our EY garden as an Entry Point to their unit ‘Green Fingers’. 
  • In Year 3 there were some tasty milkshakes produced as they started their learning with the IPC unit ‘Shake it’. 
  • All around the school we could bump into the explorers in Year 4 as they started their great learning adventure with their unit ‘Explorers and Adventurers’.
  • In Year 5 things got perhaps even crazier with an air powered balloon race and a drenched classroom where children were testing out what would happen if a pressure vacuum would be put into a glass full of water.
  • Our Year 6 entry point of 'Earth as an Island' was all about exploring our place in the world. The children enjoyed solving a jigsaw world map puzzle as well as sharing travel experiences and food tasting.

An IEYC/IPC Entry Point is intended to grab the children’s imagination and pique their curiosity to raise their enthusiasm about the learning that lies ahead of them. We want them to be so taken in by the topic that they automatically start making connections to their previous learning inside and outside of school. I am sure such was definitely the case with the Entry Points we enjoyed this week

Book Week
Next week sees the return of TIS Puchong's famous Primary Book Week. We are all really excited to bring a small bit of normality back to school events, albeit with the strict following of SOPs to keep everyone safe.

Book Week is always a great week to highlight to children the importance of reading. As Victor Hugo famously said 'To learn to read is to light a fire; every syllable that is spelled out is a spark' and this is what we hope to achieve. By lighting a spark of passion in our children with regards to reading we hope to put them on a path to lifelong enjoyment of books.

We have lots of different activities, including 'Stop, Drop & Read' - this is when everyone, regardless of where they are, stops what they are doing, sits down and reads when they hear a special bell. Other activities include the Book Week door decoration as well as the teacher reading their favourite children's book to the class.

On the final Friday of the week we have our famous 'dress up' Friday where the children come dressed as a book character. It is always so much fun seeing how inventive children (and staff) are with their costume ideas and creativity. We will have a physically distant parade within our year group bubbles and we hope to do this first thing in the more so that we can show everyone some key highlights during our Book Week Assembly at 10am which parents are encouraged to join also.

I would like to wish all of our families a restful and safe weekend and I am looking forward to seeing everyone next week.
