We started our final week in Grade 2 with the Elementary School Swim Gala. This was the first year that the students competed in 25m races and despite the scorching weather, they all did a great job with this transition.
We rounded up our final unit with presenting our learning to the class. These included games that the children had made, a video of a play written and performed by a group of students, models, drawings and illustrations of food webs and several slideshows.
We also worked together to create a class video in which the children shared a problem they cared about and an action they thought of that could help solve or limit it. Mr. Gallagher helped us with the filming and technical aspects and Mrs. Vaughan with the singing.
Finally, we shared a lovely last day playing games, watching a film and spending time with our friends. At the final school assembly we said goodbye to teachers and students who are leaving ISS and found out that Raffles won the Swim Gala and Somerset won the House Cup for this year. We were also treated to a performance by the choir and Grade 5 students.
Thanks to all the parents and children for a really fantastic year. Ms. Nisah and I have both loved our time together and wish you all the best for Grade 3 and your many adventures ahead. Keep in touch!
Grade 2.1 are a class of 7 and 8 year old students who attend ISS International School in Singapore. We learn together and play together and enjoy sharing our discoveries with you.
