Head of Seria Campus Message

If you follow us on Instagram, you will have had the opportunity to sneak peek behind the scenes into some ISB Classrooms in Seria. Our reel sums up what I see in every classroom in Seria and what we are all about- children learning, growing and aiming to be better. When everyone knows that there is more in store and we get there by working and improving together, we can do remarkable things. This is a growth, open or outward mindset. Nurturing, motivating and challenging students (and us teachers) is the core of ISB.

If as a parent you are wondering how you can nurture, motivate and challenge your child or children at home I encourage you to read the following ‘Home Learning’ link:

Our ethos is to inspire students to continue their learning at home and to empower parents to support this process. We encourage all students to read daily!

House points update........ All students are part of an ISB House and wear a House Shirt for special events. Students work for House Points throughout the school year and compete in specially organised events and activities. You can always check the live totals by looking on the following link:

Mr. Davies who is our Year 4 teacher and campus deputy visited ISB Bandar on the 5th September. His mission: to connect with the Bandar Primary Leadership Team and share in best pastoral leadership practice. I also had the privilege of visiting our ISB CIL campus briefly this week to meet Mrs Suzie Rush to discuss ways in which we can collaborate and align best inclusive teaching and learning practice across ISB. One key ‘fact’ is that, when we are more inclusive in the classroom, all learners do better.

PRE-KG – by Teacher Julia

Pupils of Pre-Kindy class talked about emotions and parts of the face. We used the mirror to help us with this activity. We discussed emotions and what happy and sad faces look like. Working on our fine motor skills, we developed our rolling, squeezing and cutting skills using playdough, This week we learnt a new song called, 'If you're happy and you know it'. Another week of fun!

Kindy – by Teacher Chio

This week Kindy children continued to explore more about themselves by creating a super self-portrait. In phonics, they made their listening hats and went for a listening walk around our school. In Science, they investigated 'Shadows'. They began experimenting with a big touch light, using their hands to make shadows appear on the wall. They learnt that shadows can show an object's shape, but it could not show colours or detail. In math, they learnt to name and describe the characteristics of 2D- Shapes using Mathematical language such as sides, corners, flat and curved.

Reception – by Mrs Davies

This week in Reception class, they have begun to learn phonics Phase 2 sounds. The children have learned set 1/sounds, s, a, t, p with actions and songs. They have had the opportunity to enhance their phonics skills through the continuous provisions set out in the classroom. In math, they have started subitising skills to 3. In topic, they carefully looked at their reflection in the mirror and painted self-portraits. The children could talk about the colour of their skin, hair and eyes in their portraits.

Year 1 have been introduced to our topic for this term ‘Me and My Family’ this week. Sun Bears read the book ‘My Body’ by Jill McDonald and discussed what they can do with their bodies. They also attempted to write and complete a simple sentence ‘I can…’ using their phonics knowledge. They continued to share their baby and family photos to their peers as well. In math, children practiced representing objects and recognised numbers as words. Sun Bears also had the opportunity to have fun by tracing and comparing each other’s foot sizes

Year 2 – by Ms Lisa

Year 2 learned about penguins following from last week’s book Lost and Found. They loved learning about the habitat, diet, and other interesting facts about penguins. They also learnt about what makes a book non-fiction. In Math they continued learning about place value and the different ways they can show numbers. They can write it as a word, as tens and ones, and as a whole-part model. They then use that information and apply it independently to other numbers. We had a great week!

Year 3 – by Mrs McCready

Year 3 have focused their learning around healthy eating this week , making their own rainbow salads and then writing their recipes using imperative verbs and adverbs to add detail. In math everyone has worked at estimating numbers on a number line and ordering numbers up to 1000. Kingfishers have shown a lot of resilience this week learning new skills and helping each other succeed.

Another busy week in Year 5 has seen pupils working hard in their Math, adding or subtracting values between 100 and 100,000. In English, they have learnt how to use adverbial and fronted adverbials to add description to their Sci-Fi stories. Year 5s Topic, ‘What’s Out There?’ has focused on the Sun, Earth and the Moon. Pupils have started to see how the orbit of these provide our day, night and seasons.

Year 6 – by Mr Ramsden

Everyone in Year 6 has worked hard this week, as usual. They've been successfully getting to grips with rounding and negative numbers in math. Wrestling with expanded noun phrases in English and producing some lovely descriptive sentences whilst expanding their vocabulary. In Topic they have been applying the finishing touches to their excellent self-portraits, which will then have been displayed in the classroom for all to see

Year 7 – By Ms Rebekah

In Year 7 we have been diving into our new timetable - exploring the new subjects of Art & Design, Science and Humanities as well as continuing our MFL, Music, PE, Math and English learning. As secondary students we have been building a strong level of self-initiated learning and engagement in new topic areas in order to develop a zest for knowledge. With what could have been a daunting move up to secondary education, all of our students have embraced the changes with such enthusiasm, and I am proud of them all.
