Grade 5 Scuba Divers

As part of our unit on Sharing the Planet, Grade 5 students were risk-takers as they completed a PADI scuba diving course with the Al Boom Diving company. They completed theory sessions, learned skills in the pool and did open water dives in Jumeira and Fujairah. At the end they were presented with their scuba diving certification. What an excellent real-world connection to learn the importance of protecting underwater habitats!

Environmentalists 

Sharing public transport is better for the environment. How does buying a ticket work? Grade 1 find out!

Movie night! 

Looking forward to seeing you all at our first ever movie night! 

Thursday from 6:30 to 8 pm! Sports Field!

Grade 5 Scuba Divers

Grade 5 students are inquiring into how humans and animals connect to a shared environment. As a part of tuning in to this new unit, students took part in a try dive with Al Boom Diving Center to see how we can breathe under water. What great risk-takers!

The weather is getting cooler, it’s time to start visiting our Organic garden!

Our organic garden is a wonderful place where students can come close to nature. Growing your own food helps us to understand how important it is to look after our environment. Composting helps teach students to recycle, reuse, reuse and not to waste our precious resources.

Early release Thursdays?

What are the teachers doing? Preparing for appraisal, collaborating across subjects, and planning Science, of course! The PYP relies heavily on careful, structured use of teaching time. Every moment has the potential to be a teachable one. PYP teachers sustain a high probability of teachable moments through Thursday meetings.

Trimmings

After the plants are trimmed, what can we do with the trimmings? We replant them! Reuse!

Built a fire?

The outdoor adventure camp for Grade 3-4 allows children to learn how! Can you build a shelter? Do you have survival skills? Come along and learn!

Happy New Year 2016-2017


We look forward to welcoming all our families on Sunday at 8:15 am!
