Head of Seria Campus Message

Ten pupils from Year 5 & 6 took part in the indoor athletics BJSL (Brunei Junior Sports League) competition at Hornbill School.

The competition involved ten individual events testing speed, balance, agility, strength and accuracy. Well done to everyone involved and thank you for representing ISB so well and making us proud.

This week all pupils were given an opportunity to take part in CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) exercises. Please see the photographs on your child’s Seesaw journal of the challenge. A huge ‘Thank you’ to Mrs. McCready for organising and resourcing the activities.

So what has been happening this week at ISB Seria?

Pre-Kindy pupils have been learning about colours through their art activity this week. They used strings to produce their own unique pictures. Some pupils also extended their learning by mixing colours! In Maths, Pre-Kindy have been singing number nursery rhymes and learnt to use 1 on 1 corresponding counting. During mat time for literacy they read, 'The Hungry Caterpillar' and talked about healthy food. Kindy students have been looking at various modes of transportation around them and talked about the similarities and differences. They also enjoyed using the toy vehicles in their role play, using natural materials to create their favourite vehicles and learning to sort vehicles based on where they travel. Reception pupils held a scavenger hunt to help them sort items beginning with certain letter sounds. This week they learnt the sounds for C and O. They completed a number of maths challenges, matching and sorting and replicating complicated designs. In addition, Reception learnt about organs in the body, in particular ‘the heart’ and how to give CPR.

Year 1 have been making full sentences by observing different objects in class using the sentence starter “I can see…”. Pupils also went for a ‘Senses Walk’ around the school to find out what each of our body parts can sense. They certainly enjoyed taking part in the World Heart Day CPR challenge. Year 2 have been reading ‘Lost and Found’ by Oliver Jeffers in English lessons. They have written a story sequence and also made predictions. In Maths, they have been learning the number bonds to 10 and 20 and how to write number sentences. In Topic, Year 2 have been learning about continents and oceans. A very busy week! Year 3 have enjoyed using dice games to cement their knowledge of number bonds working towards improving their speed with their mental maths. They also thoroughly enjoyed learning the life skills of tying their shoelaces and taking part in the World Heart Day CPR challenge.

Year 4 have been studying the features of a non-chronological report. Cobra class completed a variety of activities such as using an excavation app and a fact hunt about Ancient civilizations. Year 4 we’re grouping types of animals based on their own criteria. In maths Year 4 rounded numbers to 10,100 and 1000. Cobra class completed a CPR challenge for World Heart day.

Year 5 have produced their perfect poetry pieces in English. In Maths, they have used the column method to solve 5-digit subtraction problems. ‘Day and night’ has become the focus of our topic What’s Out There?with students explaining why day and night occur at different times in the world. Everybody had a turn at practising CPR during a challenge set by Mrs McCready. Year 6 and 7 have been practicing grammar and building sentence structures for character description. Scientific study of the heart in the circulatory system was rounded off with how to use CPR in emergencies. Maths has developed into methods for long multiplication and the pupils are working very, very hard.

Have a wonderful weekend and we look forward to seeing you again next week.
