It’s that time of year again, our students and staff are super excited for the CIS Chinese New Year Carnival. Next Wednesday 31st of January, all the information is on the poster. Feel free to call or message our marketing team if you have any questions!
That Friday feeling means one thing to us at CIS, sharing the wonderful memories that our children have been making this week!
Please find our middle school Basketball match review article posted on the CIS wechat subscription or our website under COMMUNITY – GRIZZLIES ATHLETICS.
This week for Celebration of Learning, we will focus on two of our Grade 3 and 4 classes, let’s hear from Ms Guzzo and Mr Rankin!
GRADE 3 – Ms Guzzo: Different forms of summative assessment are used in grade three. Rather than just using a multiple choice or short answer test, the grade threes created mind maps to show all they have learned during our rocks and minerals unit. This differentiated method ensures all children are successful and able to show case what they know in a manner they understand. Much more information is given than just what a paper and pencil test can give. Please enjoy the pictures below!
GRADE 4 – Mr Rankin: Fourth graders have been exploring how to retell the events of a story using a different form or medium. Tableau is a form of dramatic art in which participants silently hold different poses to convey meaning. We learned about the criteria of a successful tableau and then performed a routine consisting of three important scenes from whichever book we were reading. They were able to convey so much using only their body shape and facial expressions!
Our middle school basketball team welcomed Country Garden School to our Cambridgeshire campus this Wednesday, with Coach Turner and assistant Coach Joel having been working extremely hard with this talented group of players. As usual, the game was fantastic and sportsmanship was the real winner. But let’s see the thoughts and feelings from Head Coach Mr Turner:
“As a team, the CIS Grizzlies have worked diligently to improve their basketball skills. Wednesday’s game was confirmation of their effort as they played a very competitive contest against a savvy Country Garden squad. Last year, Country Garden defeated us handily, but had to work much harder this time around. The final score was 39 – 31, denoting a fifty-point improvement for the grizzles over the course of a year. As their coach, I am proud of the team’s commitment, work ethic and sportsmanship. As I always tell them, we learn more about ourselves by overcoming losses than we do from winning games. Each practice will be another step in our team’s development. Go Grizzlies!”
A big well done to the team, and we can’t wait for the next match coming up on Tuesday 30th of January against the British School.
