"LEARN, GROW, AND BE UNIQUE WITH ISB"
Five Senses - Sight
Early Years students have been inquiring into the five different senses: Sight, Hearing, Smell, Taste and Touch. During their discussion on sight, students took a deep look into their own eyes and into their classmates' eyes. They compared what they saw and discussed the differences between them. From the information and data that they gathered, they created a picto-graph to display the different eye colours they found within their class. What colour are your eyes?
It’s that time again, when the flowers are blooming, the sunshine is peeking through the clouds and the smell of wet grass is spreading across the city. Spring is here and we got to celebrate Easter! Our Early Years students love to celebrate holidays, especially when they get to paint and decorate their own non-breakable Easter eggs. With bright Easter colours, the students painted designs and patterns during their art lesson to help decorate and celebrate a ‘hoppy’ holiday.
World Math Day Competition
On March 8th, our ISB mathematicians from Years 1 to 12 competed against other students from across the world, in the World Math Day Competition. Through the online platform ‘Mathletics’, our students were required to play 20 games by answering questions of quick mental math. Overall, our school was one of the top schools in the country and some of our students set personal best scores. One of our Year 6 students, Tsukasa N., placed within the top 100 students (in her grade level) across the whole entire world! Congratulations, Tsukasa and all ISB students. Such a proud and amazing accomplishment from all of our ISB mathematicians.
Visual Representation of Concepts
At ISB, teachers incorporate visual representations of the learning to target those learners who need to see the whole process, to gain a better understanding of the concept. In Year 3, students created their own water cycle models including the different steps of the cycle to reinforce their unit of inquiry learning. In Year 5, students have been exploring the math concept of Volume and they used linking cubes to help visualize the volume of cuboids. Year 1 has been learning about stories and they used picture cards to organize the sequence of events within the story. Even in Early Years, the student mixed liquid colours to understand and see the changes that occur when they are mixed.
Poetry in the Sunshine
“Poetry soothes and emboldens the soul to accept mystery.” - John Keats
Under glorious morning sunshine, Year 7s learned how poetry is an experience beyond thought—one that needs understanding through the senses. After reveling in the sensation of spring, they tried their hands at writing Japanese poetry, from simple haikus to tankas and lantern poems.
It was an eventful weekend for ISB! The Adventure Club enjoyed an outdoor games day in Zamilovaný hájek. The students had a chance to try disc golf, hula hooping, a few new fun games and of course didn’t leave out a few rounds of capture the flag!
In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: the police, who investigate crime, and the public prosecution service, who prosecute the criminals. Year 10 students have been sharing their knowledge of crime and justice, as well as learning the language of the legal system.
ISB G.O.A.T.S Playing for a Cause
The ISB G.O.A.T.S traveled to Prague to take part in the Rock and Help fundraising concert for Doctors without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières). Our talented musicians played four of their best songs, including Zombie by The Cranberries, which was a real audience favourite. Together with two other artists from ISB, Dailla and Nathalie Rowe, they raised over 70,000 crowns at Manes Art Restaurant in Prague.
